They should have a naming scheme like: > eapi4:: where function is something like > install|phase|etc. Yeah, that'd work. I'm wondering what our best merge strategy is here. I'm inclined to think we're best off fixing all the labels on the eapi-3 branch (even if we can't get them displayed or used for named references just yet), rebasing that onto master (not much has diverged) once we have the go-ahead from the Council either next meeting or the one after (probably...) and then doing the cheat-sheet with EAPI 3 included on top of that. Or were you particularly desperate to get the cheat-sheet in for EAPI 2? -- Ciaran McCreesh
