5 The things allowed in a revision bump are,
7 * New EAPI,
8 * Adding/dropping eclasses,
9 * Adding/dropping dependencies,
10 * Adding/dropping a phase function,
11 * Literally anything, except changing SRC_URI to a new version.
13 Everything that can go wrong in a new version can go wrong in a new
14 revision, and almost none of them should go straight to stable.

20 I don't think it reads that way. The bullet list consists of
21 not-mutually-exclusive items, and it's not clear if the items are to be
22 "and"ed or "or"ed in the first place.
