Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2017-11-13 15:59:33 UTC
Forked off bug #634100. As discussed with security@, the GLEP is a bit oudated and needs to be updated for the current procedures. Opening this bug to track the progress of this.
Comment 1 Kristian Fiskerstrand (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-04-08 19:00:34 UTC
Update: Security is working on it. We will likely propose a new GLEP replacing GLEP 14 as the number of changes is likely larger than what should be done for it simply to be marked final.
Comment 2 Kristian Fiskerstrand (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-05-13 18:26:47 UTC
No replacement GLEP ready yet
Comment 3 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-06-10 18:24:48 UTC
An update from montly council@ meeting:
<+Whissi> Security project is making progress. Hopefully we will be able to show you something next meeting.
Comment 4 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-09-09 21:05:18 UTC
An update from montly council@ meeting:
20:34 <@K_F> its progressing, we have an almost final version circulating internally
20:34 <@Whissi> Security project is reaching final status... hopefully next meeting we will vote.
20:34 <@leio> next security meeting?
20:34 <@Whissi> Security meeting, yes
Comment 5 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2019-08-11 19:10:04 UTC
An update from monthly council@ meeting:
20:03:33 <@Whissi> No progress.
Comment 6 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2019-11-28 16:48:02 UTC
Update from 2019-09-08 Council meeting:
<@Whissi> No real update: Looks like we will remove GLEP 14... we will find a solution this month.

Update from 2019-10-13 Council meeting:
<@ulm> no updates on this one, I suppose?
<@Whissi> :]

Update from 2019-11-10 Council meeting:
<@Whissi> No update. But I'll promise this will be resolved for December
          meeting. ;]
<@dilfridge> \o/
* dilfridge hands over the Glühwein.

Since this bug is open for 2 years, I suggest that we wait if there will be an update ready for the December meeting, and move GLEP 14 to Deferred status otherwise. (This can be done by GLEP editors, without Council vote.)
