10 Assuming this is directed at me:
11 Set support will be more generic than just static package lists (think
12 `emerge system`, `emerge security` or `emerge category`), they will be
13 defined by python modules feeding the root nodes into the dep resolver.
15 Static package lists would just be one such module, and you
16 could have multiple different modules for different formats, so don't
17 worry too much about being compatible to portage (I haven't thought
18 much about syntax yet, though there will definitely be a
19 "world"-module), if your implementation won't match the "default" list
20 module provided by portage it will be easy to provide your own module
21 (assuming your format can be translated to simple atoms).
