Hi all: I've read on the planet the recently included support to document USE flags in metadata. Seems like it was an idea from flameeyes and cardoe, discussed on the planet  and performed by -infra (bug #199788).
While planet is a good medium to share ideas and get contributors, seems to me like we need a more official way to discuss this kind of 'global' ideas before make them real. Or at least drop a note on -dev-announce explaining the new feature and telling devs and users this is now officially supported. I'm not asking for an extra overhead of 'bureaucracy' (write specs, mailling @dev, send to the council, etc.) but a bit more of communication would be appreciated: Is the feature ready to be used? Is there any kind of documentation (aside of DTD)? It will replace use.desc? Thanks.  http://farragut.flameeyes.is-a-geek.org/articles/2007/11/24/proposing-more-use-flag-documentation  http://blog.cardoe.com/archives/2007/11/23/metadataxml-updates-examples/ -- Jose Luis Rivero <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Gentoo/Doc Gentoo/Alpha -- [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list
