Please point to existing authoritative documentation which says that
downgrades are unacceptable.

It sets correct dependency on an existing ebuild in tree. The dependency
is only build time, users can upgrade linux-headers again afterwards.
The application itself is v4l2 compatible.

What I am a bit unhappy about is that the package was masked and removed
while I was away. Even bypassing the usual 30 days and no last rite
announcement was sent to -dev.

Bug 361181 is certainly on my TODO list, just not very high up to now.
If you think that there is some urgency in getting rid of the package,
please do explain so in advance.


Best regards,
