70 <p>The GLEP concept, and, in fact, much of the text of this document,
71 is liberally stolen from Python's <a class="footnote-reference" href="#python" id="id1" name="id1">[1]</a> PEPs
72 <a class="footnote-reference" href="#peps" id="id2" name="id2">[2]</a>, especially
73 PEP-0001 <a class="footnote-reference" href="#pep1" id="id3" name="id3">[3]</a> by Barry A. Warsaw, Jeremy Hylton, and David Goodger.</p>

75 <div class="section">
76 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id18" id="what-is-a-glep" name="what-is-a-glep">What is a GLEP?</a></h1>
77 <p>GLEP stands for &quot;Gentoo Linux Enhancement Proposal&quot;. A GLEP is a design
78 document providing information to the Gentoo Linux community, or describing
79 a new feature for Gentoo Linux. The GLEP should provide a concise technical
80 specification of the feature and rationale for the feature.</p>
81 <p>We intend GLEPs to be the primary mechanisms for proposing <em>significant</em> new
82 features, for collecting community input on an issue, and for
83 documenting the design decisions that have gone into Gentoo Linux. The GLEP
84 author is responsible for building consensus within the community and
85 documenting dissenting opinions.</p>
86 <p>Because the GLEPs are maintained as text files under CVS control, their
87 revision history is the historical record of the feature proposal
88 <a class="footnote-reference" href="#cvs" id="id4" name="id4">[4]</a>.</p>

90 <div class="section">
91 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id19" id="kinds-of-gleps" name="kinds-of-gleps">Kinds of GLEPs</a></h1>
92 <p>There are two kinds of GLEPs. A Standards Track GLEP describes a new feature
93 or implementation for Gentoo Linux. An Informational GLEP describes provides
94 general guidelines or information to the Gentoo Linux community, but does not
95 propose a new feature. Informational GLEPs do not necessarily represent a
96 Gentoo Linux community consensus or recommendation, so users and implementors
97 are free to ignore Informational GLEPs or follow their advice.</p>
98 </div>
99 <div class="section">
100 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id20" id="glep-work-flow" name="glep-work-flow">GLEP Work Flow</a></h1>
101 <p>The GLEP editors assign GLEP numbers and change their status. The current
102 GLEP editors are Grant Goodyear and Alastair Tse. Please send all
103 GLEP-related email to &lt;<a class="reference" href="mailto:glep&#64;gentoo.org">glep&#64;gentoo.org</a>&gt;.</p>
104 <p>The GLEP process begins with a new idea for Gentoo Linux. It is highly
105 recommended that a single GLEP contain a single key proposal or new idea. The
106 more focussed the GLEP, the more successful it tends to be. The GLEP editors
107 reserve the right to reject GLEP proposals if they appear too unfocussed or
108 too broad. If in doubt, split your GLEP into several well-focussed ones.</p>
109 <p>Each GLEP must have a champion -- someone who writes the GLEP using the style
110 and format described below, shepherds the discussions in the appropriate
111 forums, and attempts to build community consensus around the idea. The GLEP
112 champion (a.k.a. Author) should first attempt to ascertain whether the idea is
113 GLEP-able. Small enhancements or patches often don't need a GLEP and can be
114 injected into the Gentoo Linux development work flow with an enhancement &quot;bug&quot;
115 submitted to the Gentoo Linux bugzilla <a class="footnote-reference" href="#bugs" id="id5" name="id5">[6]</a>.</p>
116 <p>The GLEP champion then emails the GLEP editors &lt;<a class="reference" href="mailto:glep&#64;gentoo.org">glep&#64;gentoo.org</a>&gt; with a
117 proposed title and a rough, but fleshed out, draft of the GLEP. This draft
118 must be written in GLEP style as described below.</p>
119 <p>If the GLEP editor accepts the GLEP, he will assign the GLEP a number, label
120 it as Standards Track (a better name would be nice here -- suggestions?) or
121 Informational, give it status &quot;Draft&quot;, and create and check-in the initial
122 draft of the GLEP. The GLEP editors will not unreasonably deny a GLEP.
123 Reasons for denying GLEP status include duplication of effort, being
124 technically unsound, not providing proper motivation or addressing backwards
125 compatibility, or not in keeping with Gentoo Linux philosophy.</p>
126 <p>If a pre-GLEP is rejected, the author may elect to take the pre-GLEP to the
127 <a class="reference" href="mailto:gentoo-dev&#64;gentoo.org">gentoo-dev&#64;gentoo.org</a> mailing list to help flesh it out, gain feedback and
128 consensus from the community at large, and improve the GLEP for re-submission.</p>
129 <p>The author of the GLEP is then responsible for posting the GLEP to the
130 gentoo-dev mailing list and to the Gentoo Linux forums <a class="footnote-reference" href="#forums" id="id6" name="id6">[7]</a>, and
131 marshaling community support for it. As updates are necessary, the GLEP
132 author can check in new versions if they have CVS commit permissions, or can
133 email new GLEP versions to the GLEP editors for committing.</p>
134 <p>Standards Track GLEPs consist of two parts, a design document and a reference
135 implementation. The GLEP should be reviewed and accepted before a reference
136 implementation is begun, unless a reference implementation will aid people in
137 studying the GLEP. Standards Track GLEPs must include an implementation -- in
138 the form of code, patch, or URL to same -- before it can be considered Final.</p>
139 <p>GLEP authors are responsible for collecting community feedback on a GLEP
140 before submitting it for review. A GLEP that has not been discussed on
141 <a class="reference" href="mailto:gentoo-dev&#64;gentoo.org">gentoo-dev&#64;gentoo.org</a> and/or the Gentoo Linux forums <a class="footnote-reference" href="#forums" id="id7" name="id7">[7]</a> will not be
142 accepted. However, wherever possible, long open-ended discussions on public
143 mailing lists should be avoided. Strategies to keep the discussions efficient
144 include setting up a specific forums thread for the topic, having the GLEP
145 author accept private comments in the early design phases, etc. GLEP authors
146 should use their discretion here.</p>
147 <p>Once the authors have completed a GLEP, they must inform the GLEP editors that
148 it is ready for review. GLEPs are reviewed by the appropriate Gentoo
149 Manager <a class="footnote-reference" href="#manager" id="id8" name="id8">[8]</a>, who may approve or reject a GLEP outright, or
150 send it back to the author(s) for revision. For a GLEP that is pre-determined
151 to be approvable (e.g., it is an obvious win as-is and/or its implementation
152 has already been checked in) the appropriate Gentoo Manager <a class="footnote-reference" href="#manager" id="id9" name="id9">[8]</a>
153 may also initiate a GLEP review, first notifying the GLEP author(s) and giving
154 them a chance to make revisions.</p>
155 <p>For a GLEP to be approved it must meet certain minimum criteria. It must be a
156 clear and complete description of the proposed enhancement. The enhancement
157 must represent a net improvement. The proposed implementation, if applicable,
158 must be solid and must not complicate the distribution unduly. Finally, a
159 proposed enhancement must satisfy the philosophy of Gentoo Linux.</p>
160 <p>Once a GLEP has been accepted, the reference implementation must be completed.
161 When the reference implementation is complete and accepted, the status will be
162 changed to &quot;Final&quot;.</p>
163 <p>A GLEP can also be assigned status &quot;Deferred&quot;. The GLEP author or editor can
164 assign the GLEP this status when no progress is being made on the GLEP. Once
165 a GLEP is deferred, the GLEP editor can re-assign it to draft status.</p>
166 <p>A GLEP can also be &quot;Rejected&quot;. Perhaps after all is said and done it was not
167 a good idea. It is still important to have a record of this fact.</p>
168 <p>GLEPs can also be replaced by a different GLEP, rendering the original
169 obsolete (where version 2 of a policy, for example, might replace version 1).</p>
170 <p>GLEP work flow is as follows:</p>
171 <pre class="literal-block">
172 Draft -&gt; Accepted -&gt; Final -&gt; Replaced
173 ^
174 +----&gt; Rejected
175 v
176 Deferred
177 </pre>
178 <p>Some Informational GLEPs may also have a status of &quot;Active&quot; if they are never
179 meant to be completed. E.g. GLEP 1 (this GLEP).</p>

183 <p>Each GLEP should have the following parts:</p>
184 <ol class="arabic">
185 <li><p class="first">Preamble -- <a class="reference" href="http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc822.html">RFC 822</a> style headers containing meta-data about the
186 GLEP, including the GLEP number, a short descriptive title (limited
187 to a maximum of 44 characters), the names, and optionally the
188 contact info for each author, etc.</p>
189 </li>
190 <li><p class="first">Abstract -- a short (~200 word) description of the technical issue
191 being addressed.</p>
192 </li>
193 <li><p class="first">Motivation -- The motivation is critical for GLEPs that want to
194 modify Gentoo Linux functionality. It should clearly explain why the
195 existing functionality or policy is inadequate to address the problem that
196 the GLEP solves. GLEP submissions without sufficient motivation may be
197 rejected outright.</p>
198 </li>
199 <li><p class="first">Specification -- The technical specification should describe the
200 specific areas of Gentoo Linux that would be touched by this GLEP. If new
201 functionality is being introduced, what packages will that functionality
202 affect? If new policy, who will be affected?</p>
203 </li>
204 <li><p class="first">Rationale -- The rationale fleshes out the specification by
205 describing what motivated the design and why particular design decisions
206 were made. It should describe alternate designs that were considered and
207 related work, e.g. how the feature is supported in other distributions.</p>
208 <p>The rationale should provide evidence of consensus within the community and
209 discuss important objections or concerns raised during discussion.</p>
210 </li>
211 <li><p class="first">Backwards Compatibility -- All GLEPs
212 must include a section describing any issues of backwards incompatibilities
213 and their severity. The GLEP must explain how the author proposes to deal
214 with these incompatibilities. (Even if there are none, this section should
215 be included to clearly state that fact.) GLEP submissions without a
216 sufficient backwards compatibility treatise may be rejected outright.</p>
217 </li>
218 <li><p class="first">Reference Implementation -- The reference implementation must be
219 completed before any GLEP is given status &quot;Final&quot;, but it need not be
220 completed before the GLEP is accepted. It is better to finish the
221 specification and rationale first and reach consensus on it before writing
222 code or significantly modifying ebuilds.</p>
223 </li>
224 <li><p class="first">Copyright/public domain -- Each GLEP must either be explicitly
225 labelled as placed in the public domain (see this GLEP as an example) or
226 licensed under the Open Publication License [#OPL].</p>

232 <p>GLEPs are written either in Gentoo Linux Guide-XML <a class="footnote-reference" href="#guidexml" id="id10" name="id10">[11]</a> or in
233 a just-barely-marked-up version of plain ASCII text
234 called ReStructuredText <a class="footnote-reference" href="#resthome" id="id11" name="id11">[10]</a> that is then converted to HTML using
235 Docutils <a class="footnote-reference" href="#docutils" id="id12" name="id12">[12]</a>. Using ReStructuredText GLEPs allows for rich markup
236 that is still quite easy to read, but results in much better-looking and more
237 functional HTML. Moreover, it should be straightforward to convert GLEPs to
238 Gentoo Linux guide xml <a class="footnote-reference" href="#guidexml" id="id13" name="id13">[11]</a> if needed. GLEP 2 contains a boilerplate
239 template <a class="footnote-reference" href="#rest" id="id14" name="id14">[5]</a> for use with ReStructuredText GLEPs.</p>

243 <p>Each GLEP must begin with an <a class="reference" href="http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2822.html">RFC 2822</a> style header preamble. The headers
244 must appear in the following order. Headers marked with &quot;*&quot; are
245 optional and are described below. All other headers are required.</p>
246 <pre class="literal-block">
247 GLEP: &lt;glep number&gt;

259 Post-History: &lt;dates of postings to gentoo-dev&gt;
260 * Replaces: &lt;glep number&gt;
261 * Replaced-By: &lt;glep number&gt;
262 </pre>
263 <p>The Author header lists the names, and optionally the email addresses
264 of all the authors/owners of the GLEP. The format of the Author header
265 value must be</p>
266 <blockquote>
267 Random J. User &lt;<a class="reference" href="mailto:address&#64;dom.ain">address&#64;dom.ain</a>&gt;</blockquote>
268 <p>if the email address is included, and just</p>
269 <blockquote>
270 Random J. User</blockquote>
271 <p>if the address is not given.</p>
272 <p>If there are multiple authors, each should be on a separate line
273 following <a class="reference" href="http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2822.html">RFC 2822</a> continuation line conventions. Note that personal
274 email addresses in GLEPs will be obscured as a defense against spam
275 harvesters.</p>
276 <p>While a GLEP is in private discussions (usually during the initial Draft
277 phase), a Discussions-To header will indicate the mailing list or URL where
278 the GLEP is being discussed. No Discussions-To header is necessary if the
279 GLEP is being discussed privately with the author, or on the gentoo-dev
280 mailing list. Note that email addresses in the Discussions-To header will not
281 be obscured.</p>
282 <p>The Type header specifies the type of GLEP: Informational or Standards
283 Track.</p>
284 <p>The format of a GLEP is specified with a Content-Type header, which
285 should read &quot;text/xml&quot; for Gentoo Guide XML or
286 &quot;text/x-rst&quot; for ReStructuredText GLEPs (see GLEP 2
287 <a class="footnote-reference" href="#rest" id="id15" name="id15">[5]</a>).</p>
288 <p>The Created header records the date that the GLEP was assigned a number, while
289 Post-History is used to record the dates of when new versions of the GLEP are
290 posted to gentoo-dev. Both headers should be in dd-mmm-yyyy format, e.g.
291 14-Aug-2001.</p>
292 <p>GLEPs may have a Requires header, indicating the GLEP numbers that this GLEP
293 depends on.</p>
294 <p>GLEPs may also have a Replaced-By header indicating that a GLEP has been
295 rendered obsolete by a later document; the value is the number of the GLEP
296 that replaces the current document. The newer GLEP must have a Replaces
297 header containing the number of the GLEP that it rendered obsolete.</p>

301 <p>How you report a bug, or submit a GLEP update depends on several factors, such
302 as the maturity of the GLEP, the preferences of the GLEP author, and the
303 nature of your comments. For the early draft stages of the GLEP, it's
304 probably best to send your comments and changes directly to the GLEP author.
305 For more mature, or finished GLEPs you may want to submit corrections to the
306 Gentoo Linux bugzilla <a class="footnote-reference" href="#bugs" id="id16" name="id16">[6]</a> so that your changes don't get lost. If the GLEP
307 author is a Gentoo Linux developer, assign the bug/patch to him, otherwise
308 assign it to the GLEP editors.</p>
309 <p>When in doubt about where to send your changes, please check first with the
310 GLEP author and/or GLEP editors.</p>
311 <p>GLEP authors who are also Gentoo Linux developers can update the GLEPs
312 themselves by using &quot;cvs commit&quot; to commit their changes.</p>

315 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id25" id="transferring-glep-ownership" name="transferring-glep-ownership">Transferring GLEP Ownership</a></h1>
316 <p>It occasionally becomes necessary to transfer ownership of GLEPs to a new
317 champion. In general, we'd like to retain the original author as a co-author
318 of the transferred GLEP, but that's really up to the original author. A good
319 reason to transfer ownership is because the original author no longer has the
320 time or interest in updating it or following through with the GLEP process, or
321 has fallen off the face of the 'net (i.e. is unreachable or not responding to
322 email). A bad reason to transfer ownership is because you don't agree with
323 the direction of the GLEP. We try to build consensus around a GLEP, but if
324 that's not possible, you can always submit a competing GLEP.</p>
325 <p>If you are interested in assuming ownership of a GLEP, send a message asking
326 to take over, addressed to both the original author and the GLEP editors
327 &lt;<a class="reference" href="mailto:glep&#64;gentoo.org">glep&#64;gentoo.org</a>&gt;. If the original author doesn't respond to email in a
328 timely manner, the GLEP editors will make a unilateral decision (it's not like
329 such decisions can't be reversed :).</p>
