7 My intention is for PMS to specify the search algorithm that's used to
8 probe the EAPI, and also for it to specify that package managers must
9 treat an ebuild as invalid if the probed EAPI is not identical to the
10 one that's obtained from bash. If all package managers adhere strictly
11 to these two requirements, then we won't have any incompatibilities
12 between package managers here.
