I update the document on 
http://dev.gentoo.org/~lu_zero/glep/liveebuild.rst some time ago but I 
forgot to ping others beside Thomas.

What's needed beside Thomas part (that should make me happy about having 
glep54 more complete, understandable and hopefully with more backing), 
is merging what I write about the current situation and the "minor 
changes" like adding the live property to make portage aware since that 
is concerning me more than having theoretically proper versioning (since 
that point could be managed enforcing versioning guidelines for 
snapshots with ease)
