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
<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.
