4. Open bugs

  • 388551: x11-libs/qt-gui should export GTK2_RC_FILES when USE="gtkstyle" is enabled - is there any way we can improve this? let's leave it as is; we don't want to recommend deprecated gnome packages

5. Open floor

We can use some more help. It was agreed that it would be a good idea to announce this widely - TODO yngwin to write announcement. We can offload app maintenance to proxy-maintainers, and at the same time invite them to get more involved.
