Hi all,

[CC'ing [hidden email] as requested by GLEP amendment from March 8th, 2007]

A subset of council members decided today that multiple version suffixes
are illegal in the tree pending further notice. This decission can be
appealed at the next Council meeting. If there is sufficient public
demand, an earlier meeting can be held.

This decission has been made to prevent sufficient precedence for
unilateral changes to the tree structure. So far the following package
versions are considered illegal:


An illegal version specification of media-sound/alsa-driver has already
been removed from the tree.

I would like to ask the affected package maintainers to move these
versions to sane version specifications as soon as possible. Thanks in
advance for this.
