during the last few months, we've seen an influx of new virtuals and
At least I'm not happy with each and every one of those - not to speak
of technical complications we've seen.
Nevertheless, the intention of this RFC is *NOT* to remove existing
virtuals or alternatives. That's an entirely different topic.
Thus, my suggestion is as follows:
- We require an *announcement* on this list prior to introducing new
virtuals and non-light alternatives.
- The announcement should be sent at least 48 hours before pushing them.
- There's *no* approval involved. It just gives everyone a time frame
during which they can discuss the addition with the person wanting to
- Said discussion will hopefully avoid later "strong dissent" among us.
If you want to take a look at our current alternatives, you can use this
for m in $(eclectic print-modules --group Alternatives); do echo ==== $m
====; eclectic $m list; done
What's your opinion?
Best regards, Wulf
