Hi folks! I am not involved in creating the EAPI 2 draft but I am interested in the discussion and would like to track the technical evolution but this seams nearly impossible as you're not able to agree on a public draft document.

So my request to the council is not a technical decision on the content itself but at least a decision about which document is the official draft. So here are my suggestions: (which are an enhancement over the GLEP process) - An official (by the council accepted) VCS repo (a la git) for the document (EAPI draft or even the PMS spec?) - An interface (mailing address) where everyone interested can submit a patch for this document and a herd which is responsible for maintaining and merging the patches if accepted. (<- we need a procedure especially for the accept of patches. Voting, council decision, herd decision) - A project page where the patches are published (and evtl. can be voted) and the HEAD is public readable - The technical discussion can then be made in mailing list but then every dev has a possibility to follow the technical issues in a concentrated way and we have a place where we can cite and ref to. - To make this work any other document or source for drafts has to be declined and not discussed (this seams hard but is IMHO the only way to make things work) So long and thx for all the fish, mueli p.S.: If I missed something and something I mentioned already exists then please correct me or forget my request but please be also so kind and publish in a documentation (perhaps somewhere at ) where to find informations on the EAPI process.  ... http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/list.xml -- ------------------------------------------------------------ Michael Hammer | <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> | Graz, AT Geno's Developer (Kerberos) | http://www.michael-hammer.at LocalWords: Kerberos
