1 How do you determine the cause of a downgrade?
3 Today I did "emerge --sync" and "emerge -auvNDt world" with (I think)
4 no configuration changes since the last update a couple days ago, and
5 now emerge wants to downgrade xorg-server from 1.20.9 to 1.20.8-r1:

16 AFAICT both 1.20.9 and 1.20.8-r1 are stable on amd4 (the only
17 difference between the two .ebuild files are the keywords for hppa and
18 ppc). I can't find any ebuilds that appear to depend on the
19 downgraded version.
