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 .
~ * 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?
