13 I'd suggest that we agree early-on that the scope of this is around
14 ebuild work. Not "upstream" work where the upstream is Gentoo.
16 Of course, there could be overlap. portage-1.23.ebuild might have a
17 bug, and that gets fixed in the portage dev git, and later gets
18 released to portage-1.24, and then ends up in stable sometime later.
19 Those could be two separate bugs (the gentoo repo ebuild bug vs the
20 portage "upstream" bug), but I'm not sure that makes life easier. If
21 they were two separate bugs (as they would be if Gentoo weren't the
22 upstream) then the scope of this effort is focused on the Gentoo
23 ebuild repo bug.
