[RFC] Features and documentation

From:  Donnie Berkholz <>
Subject:  [RFC] Features and documentation

How the recent changes happened to allow USE flag descriptions in 
metadata.xml (which I'm not taking any position on now) gave me an idea. 
The Linux kernel requires that any needed documentation accompany all 
changes requiring said documentation -- part of the source-code patch 
must apply to the Documentation/ directory. Should we require that 
before you commit any changes, you (or someone) write the documentation 
for them and commit it or submit a patch at the same time?

To sum up: No undocumented changes.
