Subject: [GLEP 56] metadata.xml USE flag descriptions [Clarifications]
Date: Wed, 13 Aug 2008 13:11:35 -0400
Howdy all,

Further questions regarding use.desc have come up with regard to this 
GLEP. My proposed solution would be a potential amendment to the GLEP to 
state that

<flag name='png' />

Would be allowed. This syntax is not actually disallowed or allowed by 
the current GLEP, but mentioning it would allow a metadata.xml contain 
all the USE flags that appear in IUSE, even the global ones. By using 
the above syntax, it would simply state that there is no additional 
descriptions or details but to just use the use.desc description.

Further more, it would allow us in the future to make that mandatory and 
repoman would only have to check metadata.xml for your USE flag.

Comments, Suggestions, Input are all welcome.
