Default Monthly Gentoo Council Reminder for May

This is your monthly friendly reminder ! Same bat time (typically
the 2nd Thursday at 2000 UTC / 1600 EST), same bat channel
(#gentoo-council @ irc.freenode.net) !

If you have something you'd wish for us to chat about, maybe even
vote on, let us know ! Simply reply to this e-mail for the whole
Gentoo dev list to see.

Keep in mind that every GLEP *re*submission to the council for review
must first be sent to the gentoo-dev mailing list 7 days (minimum)
before being submitted as an agenda item which itself occurs 7 days
before the meeting. Simply put, the gentoo-dev mailing list must be
notified at least 14 days before the meeting itself.

Just to summarize, for purposes of informing everyone of something I've
already requested.

Recently we retired 3 developers, the devrel project was not involved as
a group except for the lead, and apparently the developers did not know
anyone was looking at complaints filed against them. I'd like Council
(1) to explain its role in this, if any, (2) explain why it permits such
actions in apparent violation of Gentoo's policy of openness, (3) and
since there seems to be some confusion (on my part at least) how to
interpret Council's role in any appeal IF (I don't really know) Council
played a part in the disciplinary action, please amend Council's
enabling document GLEP 39 to explain how Council handles appeals and
whether or not Council can take or direct disciplinary action in light
of this absolute requirement.

Since this is a general mailing list and some of you might not know what
I'm talking about, this is GLEP 39 and as such it helps define Gentoo
policy and procedure.

I would like to see the council to chat about two points, which are the
following:


1) ChangeLog entries and when one is a must-have. This especially in
relation to arch stabilizations.

2) The situation of keywording, stabilization or other bugs being
completely ignored by the arm, sh and s390 teams. Can something be done
to help in resolving this? Stabilizations do happen, but ignoring the
bugs, and whenever they are felt to be done, and no un-CC-ing happens -
usually with a 1 to 5 months of delay.

I'd like a decision on the eight digits thing in PMS:

> No integer part of a version specification may contain more than eight

It's been discussed on this list previously:

http://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-dev/msg_db2f5c09c2c0c8b042ca3d0dcec7cdaf.xml

and on bugzilla:

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=188449

and I get the impression that there aren't any particularly strong
feelings either way. So can we get a Council ruling to either kill the
limit and strongly encourage people to fix their code, or keep the
limit and start enforcing it and fixing it in the tree via repoman etc?
