Probably not. FWICS during the ban period there was only one commit revbumping EAPI=4 ebuild and adding Prefix support. All other cases of adding EAPI=4 were just reverts of depgraph-breaking commits. I used: $ git log -p --diff-filter=A --since=2018-04-08 and grepped it for EAPI=.*4 -- Best regards, Michał Górny
