Concerning the last part of the discussion about CLI. I would add one more things to the way CLI could evolve.

Suppose we are at release N. For next major release N+1, we decided to change/modify/delete some OLD CLI and introduce a NEW one. A smooth way to evolve could be to deprecated the OLD CLI while introducing the NEW LCI. this way, the code continue to support the OLD CLI, but with a Warning saying that this command will be deprecated in next release, to let users time to adapt their configuration. Then, in release N+2, the OLD CLI is removed.

I agree that this introduce more code (need to support both OLD and NEW CLI) that in some case will be not possible, but could be safer for users. If accepted, the rule is to tag OLD CLI code with a special //DEPRECATED comment to know that this will be remove in future release.

Hope next meeting we have time to discuss the Pull request process.
Can you put it on top of the agenda for next meeting as this is the second time we ran out of time ?
