Hi Zack,

the ebuild version numbers are the same as the version numbers of the
packages, unless there is a gentoo specific revision number attached.
The gentoo revision number would be a "-r" followed by a number at the
end of the version number, such as emacspeak-25-r2.

Is that the thing that was confusing you about our ebuild version
