Hi again.

Quoting Zac earlier in #gentoo-portage:

21:46 < zmedico> jmbsvicetto: I think we essentially have a spec already
that people can agree on. just take my draft and subtract the eapi*
functions and the gitweb unpack extension.

So we're talking about adding the following to EAPI-2:

~ * The 'doman' helper function recognizes language codes in man page
~   source files, and uses them to generate an appropriate
~   installation path.

~ * The meaning of the !atom blocker syntax now implies that
~   temporary simultaneous installation of conflicting packages is
~   allowed [3].

~ * A new !!atom blocker syntax is now supported, for use in special
~   cases in which temporary simultaneous installation of conflicting
~   packages should not be allowed.

~ * Dependency atoms can be constrained to match specific USE flag
~   states, including USE conditional expressions embedded within
~   the atoms themselves.

~ * SRC_URI supports a syntax extension which allows customization
~   of output file names by using a "->" operator.

~ * A new src_prepare phase function is called after src_unpack.

~ * The old src_compile phase function is split into separate
~   src_configure and src_compile fuctions.

~ * Default phase function implementations for the current EAPI are
~   accessible via a function having a name that begins with default_
~   and ends with the respective phase function name.

~ * The default phase function implementation for the currently
~   executing phase is accessible as a function named 'default'.

Given the earlier discussion about EAPI-2 in
and cardoe's earlier request to the council ml, can the council members
discuss this proposal and consider voting it?
Does anyone have any objections to this proposal?

That removes the only two sections that appeared to have any chatter on them. Anyone involved in PMS or other package managers have any input on this?
