Blueprints for Gentoo for Pandora Portage OverlayGentoo for Pandora Portage Overlay

Launchpad lets projects track the features they intend to implement over the next few releases. We call each feature proposal a "blueprint", and it can be a single paragraph placeholder for the idea, or a full-blown development specification. Once a blueprint is in Launchpad, we can generate reports of the project roadmap, as well as notifying interested developers of blueprint status changes. It's a great way to build a small community around an idea, feature or proposal.

Examples of projects that use this system include Ubuntu, Zope and Bazaar.

Register the first blueprint in this project! If you have a proposal for a feature that you want to implement, or you want to gather together people to discuss a proposal, then register it here as a blueprint.

Once you have a few blueprints in the system you can plan releases, and keep track of who is responsible for what. You can approve blueprints as goals for a particular release, and then generate a simple report of progress towards feature completion for that release.

Anybody can register a blueprint, but only the drivers can make the decision as to whether that proposal is accepted for a meeting or a release.

In this case, the drivers are:
