Default One-Day Gentoo Council Reminder for May

This is your one-day friendly reminder ! The monthly Gentoo Council
meeting is tomorrow in #gentoo-council on irc.freenode.net. See the
channel topic for the exact time (but it's probably 2000 UTC).

If you're supposed to show up, please show up. If you're not supposed
to show up, then show up anyways and watch your Council monkeys dance
for you.

For more info on the Gentoo Council, feel free to browse our homepage:

Here's the suggested agenda. Please feel free to respond to some of the
commentary within, because it's hard for me to usefully summarize a
topic's background in an entirely objective manner.

Thanks,
Donnie
Requested attendees
===================

Active developer: araujo, anyone who could talk about how to get this
script running on Gentoo infra
PMS: ciaranm, pkgcore dev, portage dev, any other tools that care about
versions
Enforced retirement: fmccor, musikc
musikc has already informed us that she can't make it until an hour
later, so this is the final topic.

New process
===========

The last few meetings have dragged out for hours unnecessarily. This
time, let's return to moderating the channel. Let's try moderating
during discussion of each topic, then temporarily opening the floor for
that topic before a vote so anyone can contribute.


Updates to last month's topics
==============================

http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/council/meeting-logs/20080410-summary.txt

Document of being an active developer
-------------------------------------
Last month:
No updates
Updates:
araujo made http://dev.gentoo.org/~araujo/gcert1.pdf in Scribus.
He'd like to ask for approval of this design and discuss the
script, in particular its infrastructure requirements.

Slacker arches
--------------
4 months ago:
vapier will work on rich0's suggestion and repost it for
discussion on -dev ML
2 months ago:
vapier said he was going to work on it that weekend.
Last month:
No updates
Updates:


New topics
==========

When are ChangeLog entries required?
------------------------------------
This question mainly relates to arch stabilizations.


Can the council help fewer bugs get ignored by arm/sh/s390 teams?
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The work happens, but Mart says it's not communicated to anyone and
has no relationship to whether bugs are open.


PMS: Are versions allowed to have more than 8 digits?
-----------------------------------------------------
http://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-dev/msg_db2f5c09c2c0c8b042ca3d0dcec7cdaf.xml
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=188449

What do various PMs/tools support?


Enforced retirement
-------------------

What was the council's role in the recent enforced retirement of
3 developers?
----------------------------------------------------------------
The council received numerous complaints, agreed that the devrel
lead could take action and discussed the problems with her. The
council did not "force" her to claim its actions were hers.


Why does the council permit such actions in apparent violation of
Gentoo's policy of openness?
-----------------------------------------------------------------
http://www.gentoo.org/foundation/en/#doc_chap2 says this:

"Every aspect of Gentoo is and remains open. Gentoo does not
benefit from hiding any of its development processes (whether it
is source code or documentation, decisions or discussions,
coordination or management)."

Chris (wolf) noted that it does specifically refer to
development process. Devrel's current process document
<http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/devrel/policy.xml> also makes
specific note of the lack of transparency, and disciplinary
actions have historically been discussed in a closed
environment, in part because of the potential harmful effects of
the discussions if action is not taken.


What is the council's role in an appeal?
----------------------------------------
How should we proceed with the current appeals?

If the council is directly involved in disciplinary action,
Ferris requests that we amend GLEP 39 to explain how the council
handles appeals and whether the council can take direct
disciplinary action.


Open floor

Might I suggest that if PMS is going to be discussed, a copy of
PMS.pdf actually be available somewhere? Preferably with the
kdebuild-1 crap stripped out...

Definitely would help considering the damned thing has yet to build on
my system (longterm complaints re: missing fixme.sty during make).

Might I suggest that you read the agenda rather than going completely
off topic like last time?

If PMS is going to be discussed in some form, it's a fair request that
folks have an easily readable version.

Insane enough, loosening the 8 digit version restriction can have
other implications- very least, verifying that bash 3.0 is when [[ ]]
support was introduced since [ ] breaks down for long long from a
quick look. That's off the top of the head- could be more. Actually
having a pdf to read would make that a helluva lot easier too.

Course, it's way more fun to just bitch at me then build a pdf so
others can look at the current spec for the discussion at hand (bugs
are one thing, looking at the actual spec is another).

One thing I wouldn't mind the council discussing is whether or not the
recent behaviour re: pms on -dev is acceptable for running a project-
it's not exactly engendering cooperation. Feel free to delay that
till the next month, or ignore it (y'alls court after all).

The relevant sentence was provided. Had you bothered to read the
agenda, you would know this.

Here you have latest pms revision built without kdebuild-1 spec:
http://dev.gentoo.org/~coldwind/pms.pdf

It's not that hard to extract the relevant paragraph from the tex
sources, though.

Already did (hence the bash 3.0 comment), that said having a live copy
of the doc for ebuild devs to review, or portage tree tool developers
to review isn't exactly a bad idea.

It's a helluva lot simpler then digging through a mishmash of tex
files also

Thanks meanwhile,

Council: if you wouldn't mind and have time, kindly extend the
discussion of PMS beyond version components (which I already clarified
where the potential issue is) to the future of it, current behaviour
from (frankly) the sole developer of it, how involved other package
managers (say... portage, the biggest out there) are in the process.

It's frankly a discussion long overdue.

Cheers.

I've updated it now to:
http://dev.gentoo.org/~coldwind/pms.pdf
http://dev.gentoo.org/~coldwind/pms-without-kdebuild.pdf

Someone may want to automate it. At the moment, ping me if you want me
to update them.
