I just quote comment 3 from the linked bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/737914#c3: "copying the zonefile to /etc/localtime is a good idea, as /usr could be on a separate partition. How about creating the /etc/TZ -> /etc/timezone softlink by default?" In my opinion so many tools tend to expect an always-mounted /usr that the symlink would not do any harm. FWIW I use symlinks on a handfull Gentoo machines and had no issues in years, but I'm pretty close to mainstream (amd64, glibc, OpenRC). Best regards, Nils signature.asc Description: PGP signature

Hi all, I find the idea of having data great, but agree that it can lead to a false sense of having a correct data base. Therefor two thoughts: First, therefore I'd like to propose that you introduce gentoostats as a *strictly timed experiment* and evaluate if it actually changed anything within your decisions and drop it or let run permanently afterwards. I have no proper solution for the parameters though, maybe something like "I choose to keep X use flags based on g.s.", but this would ask every dev to log plenty of decisions manually (read: I don't think this will happen). Second, I'm a bit frightened of Whissi's thought of dropping anything security related based on non-input via g.s. -- I'd like to ask you to use the information based on g.s. *not* for security related decisions, more for "harmless" ones like the Matt mentioned: Should I really support feature X while literally everyone of 200 users uses feature Y instead and I have no real testing ground for feature X (Matt, yell at me if I got you wrong!).

Hi, most of my points were just said. Two additional notes: - dev-embedded/jtag says upstream is dead anyway and it recommends an alternative we have inside our tree, dev-embedded/urjtag. - games-strategy/netpanzer got a rewrite called version 2.something, which looks active/used. Please reflect these in the masking message(s). However, thanks for the housekeeping! Kind regards, Nils -- GPG fingerprint: '766B 8122 1342 6912 3401 492A 8B54 D7A3 FF3C DB17' Holgersson

E.g. affirmative feedback from all affected packages. Often a fix timeline is the only way to achieve any responses - or at least get stuff done, even if the matter itself is not urgent at all. In this specific case the points Michael had were quite clear, and the timespan of two month was long enough to react somehow (at least in the context of typical periods in Gentoo, e.g. last rite/removal period of 30 days). On topic: There are some users including myself that find cracklib mostly annoying. I use strong passwords (or ssh keys only) where I can, and cracklib annoys me with the request to set "secure passwords" for a container playground, where I want root:test as login credentials. Beside that the point that profiles in general should contain as least USE as possible (see the bug report for that). > Enforcement of rules or Gentoo development guidelines does not happen > consistently, and the times when rules are enforced "for consistency's > sake" seem completely arbitrary. There seems to be no extant problems > caused by the flag as set, so why focus on this specifically? To me these times look as they're based upon agreement between the involved parties, and in itself consistently, e.g. at least 30 days masking before removal out of the tree, or in this case at least two to four weeks to let others respond. > There is a lot of discussion of not burdening developers with > pointless talk or changes.

With all due respect, your posting didn't bring any new relevant aspects into this thread on this mailing list with the explicit focus and topic of Gentoo development, and might be exactly part of the "pointless talk" you mention. My one isn't better; I just want to point that out to you, because you tend to write messages with this kind of meta questions about the cause of things. If you want to discuss this, I'd prefer another place than this list.

Yes, exactly that is what I’m asking for. I think your point c vs. d statement was that good it might be best if you’d write two or three sentences.

Even if that split won’t happen -- I don’t know if mgorny has the "right" or support to do that and I personally want to stay out of these discussions -- I really *do* think that a moderation of a frequented mailing list like gentoo- dev is a generally good idea. Therefore we need properly documented rules (beside moderators). To answer you question: I think the RFC introduces either a "time pressure" or should be seen as sign that this list needs an improvement.

Hello everyone, with regards to the current mailing list (ML) split discussion, and one specific message deep down there by mgorny asked for someone providing moderator rules, I would like to propose the following ruleset for gentoo-dev Right now the situation escalated in a way that forces to actually do something and I hope we can recreate an atmosphere where technical improvements can happen. I suggest using a very specific ruleset to give a proper guide to future moderators and users of the ML in addition to our *existing* Code of Conduct. As my personal experience showed me it might be good to add a good alternative to every expelled bad one, so I added them. As this is a RFC I’d welcome any discussion about that document. Proposal 1. Idea and topic of the mailing list The gentoo-dev mailing follows the main idea of discussing topics that are part of the development of Gentoo itself. This limits to technical aspects like eclass improvements, or GLEP development. Off topic discussions or general user support are not part of this mailing list and should be held on other, appropriate lists. 2. People or groups allowed to write to gentoo-dev ML - Everybody who has the intention to contribute to the discussions according to the mailing list’s topic has the right to do that after a subscription. This explicitly excludes off topic discussions, flaming, trolling and verbal attacks against other people or groups (which are defined under point 5). On gentoo-dev it also excludes bug reports or support questions. Bug reports can be filed in the bug tracker, support related questions can be asked on other mailing lists, in IRC channels or in the Gentoo related forums. 3. Moderation - The moderation team has to consist of at least two developers. The moderators have to do join the moderation team voluntarily. Moderators are held to warn authors on the list if they ignore the rules of this list and ban them for a limited time if they repeat the behaviour that led to warnings in the first place. 4. Procedure of banning and ban times - As banning is a severe interaction it has to be strictly regulated. When moderators perceive someone ignoring the rules, they have to go through the following steps: a) Warn the respective person once pointing out the exact rule that was violated. If the violation continues, moderators have to b) ban the user for 24h noting this in a direct response the violation. That way the violation, ban time and reason are documented. Every third 24h ban results into c) a 7 day ban with the same regularities as a 24 hour ban. d) Every ban has to be notified to ComRel (com...@gentoo.org). 5. Reasons for warnings and bans The rationale for the whole moderation is to keep the list productive. To achieve this, some specific actions have to be sanctioned: a) trolling, i.e. provocation of aggressive reactions b) attacks, e.g. insulting people or groups (which does not include proper articulated disagreement) c) spamming, i.e. flooding discussions with lots of messages in a row d) constant postings off topic, i.e. disrupting discussions with unrelated questions (constant means more than two times in a row) 6. Preservation of transparency & discussions - Maybe the most important aspect for moderation is transparency. To achieve it the ban is a) strictly regulated with regards to possible reasons b) strictly timed, c) logged via the mailing list archives. If a warned or banned person thinks the action taken wasn’t correct, this issue might addressed with the moderator in a private discussion first. If there is no conclusion found, the discussion should take place with ComRel as a mediation party.  https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Council/Code_of_conduct -- GPG fingerprint: '766B 8122 1342 6912 3401 492A 8B54 D7A3 FF3C DB17' Holgersson signature.asc Description: This is a digitally signed message part.
