9 FWIW I don't drop KEYWORDS for bumps considered major.
11 However, sometimes a major bump means a new dependency not keyworded for
12 given arch, and in that case I would drop KEYWORDS.
14 Note that most packages I (co-)maintain are not keyworded ~ppc/ppc64,
15 but this has happened e.g. for ~arm.
