Applied these three, thanks.

Some comments on this one: Is the subdirectory necessary? Seems a bit weird to have it for one thing. Can we make each item have the PMS label name for full details at the end of its paragraph? And add a new 'Other changes' item with the label names of other changes not described? The 'pkg_pretend' description should probably tell developers to duplicate any checks done in pkg_setup. I've stopped using 'uninstalled' for pkg_info in favour of 'non-installed'. Think it's less confusing. 'must be defined' is a bit dodgy for RDEPEND. 'Unset RDEPEND not set to DEPEND' possibly. The slot operator deps should include the : before the symbol. Use dep defaults are in (+) and (-), not + or - on their own. I'd mention the switch for docompress. doins symlinks should say that it only works for -r. I probably need to update the summaries for that too. And some wording tinkering. Can cut the Abstract down to something like: An overview of the main EAPI changes in Gentoo, for ebuild authors. For full details, consult the Package Manager Specification; this is an incomplete summary only. Official EAPIs are consecutively numbered integers (0, 1, 2, ...). Except where otherwise noted, an EAPI is the same as the previous EAPI. Cheers, -- Ciaran McCreesh
