Subject: [gentoo-devhelp] How do I select a specific Git "head" in live ebuilds?

I am trying to create an ebuild that fetches a specific head from a Git 
repo.  As you can see here:;a=summary

There are several "heads" listed: master, stable-0.4, calf-updates, etc. 
By default, the git eclass uses "master".  I tried putting:


in the ebuild.  But this doesn't seem to help; "master" is emerged 
instead of "stable-0.4".

What am I doing wrong?
