11 To avoid breaking dependency resolution on users' systems, you have to
12 make a new revision whenever you change a metadata variable that the
13 package manager uses: DEPEND, RDEPEND, BDEPEND, IUSE, LICENSE,
16 Basically, unless your change is completely trivial (updated comment,
17 typo fix...), you should be making a new revision by default.
