7 it's not stupid nor is it really a 'someone screwed up big' ...
9 newXdepend has some history behind it but it seems you only care about the
10 now ... i think danamark will have some issues when he gets back but i hope
11 that it turns out well ...
13 the way dependencies work right now with respect to eclasses is pretty
14 simple ...
16 eclasses ALWAYS use newdepend, newrdepend, newpdepend, newcdepend ... they
17 should NEVER have DEPEND= or similar ...
18 flip side of the coin is that ebuilds should not be using the newXdepend, they
19 should be using DEPEND= ...
21 i think thats clear enough so i'll leave this alone ;)
