If your proposal is only about telling people, starting by developers, to use Python-3.1 as their default python version so they can test it and help iron out any bugs and no change is going to be committed to the tree any time soon to make python-3.1 as default, then the proposal is of no consequence and I dare to say no interest to the Release Engineering team. However, if you're trying to force the use of python-3.1 in the tree and plan to commit changes that will do so, then yours is not an acceptable answer, in particular given recent history. Consumers of the stable tree are not and should not be treated as "guinea pigs". Given the previous effects on the automated builds, in this case, I'll request for the Release Engineering team a moratorium on making Python-3.1 the default python version on a system until the releng team can test and ensure that won't break the automated builds. Gentoo developers need to take into consideration users of the stable tree and should remember that the automated weekly cds and stages are built from stable ebuilds. Thus any breakage on a stable ebuild can kill the automated builds or lead to unusable cds and or stages. - -- Regards, Jorge Vicetto (jmbsvicetto) - jmbsvicetto at gentoo dot org Gentoo- forums / Userrel / Devrel / KDE / Elections / RelEng -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.16 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org/ iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJMy3QcAAoJEC8ZTXQF1qEPNj4QAKIygPhfwZmNmNDo0dgyRJGL rlY0L6K26DlI6nrRar+uTXt3uI27xyj9iItRfs+w+P07vGcqvaaov3E3XwFbRcCB Bof/scT1bf9IFTBKeHzKt0MMSu0GeMaouYO2+NQcgrgi33qFQJblAWM3Nz9OJbEG rUbNtsznfqMcYsLnxEgc6EHujXC4L40IlAP3gaPtfR1bhKLR4RDq+IJVrxus6Cg4 WZzLjJGK+VqMtwYm1FKoCDbAYBPkj/ee36sabB+BSwyugCCLEt6ux1PQBzUHZ337 uJDk5lYd/9MX1qOe+NzI53yxBqXRPo/OzxUxpR+2S0IFyaUiks90AE2OqMpBHx/l BzRMJ2LkUBIyN6w7gw1absxjsAmesdfRzOn9B+cXFb5oAgTvQAlvCU5dxILIqirA L5xHXu6tUFmbI4hHHsNSTYI64RRAbPt2VIIqMXJe3Z5Sz8qSskvTJOM8+CmJ9cA4 GNqGUnReQvpGVQlm+dMgybgYFMAUYJa8kk1+szMwzApMbI5IergL1LC7S4KH/boW SrLcjjzBThIMy5GddkrtV6HlveINigFxhGghK7rHoIIKLWT8oJkm5VD4+GAl6Z1G QbKwDDulmDa5lRjAGd6ZXHoHt2jL1LQRFzk6FDC1v8jr+gTGzNTsZSLy7bcP+qPH U+CWKYCRbhrKT1SqD+aF =MAN6 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
