6 Two things on that page are outright wrong:
8 1. If the package has stable keywords, they should be moved to the new
9 revision without dropping. To commit the ebuild, repoman commit
10 --straight-to-stable option should be used.
12 That violates our other stabilization policies and common sense.
14 2. Examples of changes that can be done without a revision bump are...
16 adding a new USE flag or removing an existing one (since change in
17 USE flags is going to trigger --changed-use rebuild),
19 The --changed-use flag is not default, not part of the PMS, and slows
20 portage down even more than it already is. The council ratified the PMS
21 and the associated GLEP, and following this advice breaks PMS-compliant
22 package managers.
