Subject: Do we want an EAPI 5?
Date: Thu, 30 Jun 2011 11:31:54 +0100
Should we start pushing for a reasonably quick EAPI 5? I'd see it as
having:

* The stuff that was left out of EAPI 3/4, which is to say :=/:*
  dependencies, and the IUSE_IMPLICIT stuff (especially since right
  now people are breaking the rules and implicitly using 'prefix' when
  they shouldn't, and the rules for (+) and (-) are largely useless
  without the stricter control).

* Cleaning up some deprecated stuff (see recent bugs).

* A replacement for versionator, since apparently versionator is still
  using (a subset of) the ooooold version rules.

I think there was something else too, but I forget what...
