7 That's not a very powerful syntax, so unless I miss something,
8 metadata.xml would have to be updated for almost every stable candidate.
10 To give an example, released versions of app-editors/emacs have exactly
11 two numerical components, while prereleases and release candidates have
12 three components or are marked _rc. Both would be impossible to match
13 with the proposed syntax.
15 So IMHO this has no advantage over keeping the information in the ebuild
16 (e.g. as a PROPERTIES token).
