6 semantics aside, how much time you dedicate is entirely up to you and really,
7 i dont think there's too many developers who honestly care how that affects
8 you
10 i consider having a spelled out EAPI=0 spec to be quite valuable and worth
11 spending time on and i have to say that i get the feeling that i'm not alone
12 on this point
14 having a behavior explanation cuts back on the "well it works in portage so go
15 screw yourself" mentality and replaces it with "package manger foo does not
16 behave according to spec" which certainly opens up the door for people to use
17 alternative package managers with the Gentoo ebuild tree (hmm we're gonna
18 have to stop referring to it as the "Gentoo portage tree" eh)
