Default EAPI 4 specification approved

To finish the year with a bang the Gentoo council has approved the
specification for EAPI 4. You can get the text via app-doc/pms (as soon
as a new ebuild hits the mirrors) or from the git repository. The gitweb
for PMS can be found here:
http://git.overlays.gentoo.org/gitweb/?p=proj/pms.git

As the text was just approved it will take a while before Package
Managers release new versions that declare support for EAPI 4. As such,
the new EAPI 4 can't yet be used in the main tree. You will be notified
as soon as you can start reaping the benefits.

On behalf of the Gentoo Council,
Petteri Räty

There are portage-2.1.9.27 and 2.2.0_alpha11 releases with EAPI 4
support in the tree now. Please test them.

For these who are wondering about the current status we need to have
these two bugs (at least) resolved before allowing usage in the tree:

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=322049
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=211529
