- Tooling to make security work easier, like pinging maintainers, changing whiteboards, and so on
- Investigate if any additional gcc flags should be added to hardened profile
- Add useful searches / tips to wiki pages?
- Audit maintainer-needed packages, possibly dev-java too, and maybe www-apps for known vulns w/o bugs
- Add mention of circular dependencies to handbook?
- Add mention of circular dependencies page to Portage? (bug #813504)
- Work on any devmanual items in notes
- Work on any wiki items in notes
- Python PGO, ideally trained on Portage unit tests
- Add further examples to the musl notes
- Summarise modern-day Hardened profile, update wiki pages, etc
- Improve wiki pages on nattka / stabilisation requests
- Add warnings on dhcp client to NetworkManager page
- Make sure docs on SIGNED_OFF_BY etc are on wiki
- Wait a few months before using new EAPIs in tree (require stable Portage to have supported it for.. 3? months)
- News item when a new EAPI is introduced to help folks who inevitably hit issues with their Portage being too stale (see also: bug #807043)
- Take longer to drop support entirely for older Pythons in the eclasses (just python-exec is the main issue here)
- In particular, makes it harder to upgrade Portage if it's too old (even with nodeps and such).
- One ends up with lots of errors like:
python-exec: Invalid impl in /etc/python-exec/python-exec.conf: python3.6
python: no python-exec wrapped executable found in /usr/lib/python-exec.
- Improve the "rescue Portage" documentation (done: Project:Portage/Fixing_broken_portage)
- Of particular note is this kind of error which appears when using an older Portage with a freshly synced tree:
emerge -uDNp --backtrack=9999 world
These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies ... done!

[02:29:43] <sam_c> leio and others: Does much support CPU_FLAGS_ARM on arm64? [02:29:57] <sam_c> As in, actually in tree. Or is it all just arm stuff. [02:30:06] <sam_c> Just wondering if that's an avenue I should look into at some point. [02:30:36] <sam_c> Also, would there be any value in CPU_FLAGS_ARM64, or not really? I imagine all it'd do is simplify ebuilds wanting to support arm64 but who need to do something different to arm in order to do so.
Things to package
