A round zero. Security patches are going stable soon after entering portage tree, and EAPI=2 ebuilds can not go stable yet, as there is no package manager supporting EAPI=2 that is going to be stable in the next week or two (so maintainers make sure they don't use EAPI=2 for security fix revisions). And if the bug is there and properly filed to the appropriate bugzilla, they wouldn't go stable before that bug is fixed (which I read are already fixed). I can not understand why this is dragged on. It was a bug, it is fixed. The sky is not falling and EAPI-2 is not broken - there was a bug in the implementation that is fixed. -- Mart Raudsepp Gentoo Developer Mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Weblog: http://planet.gentoo.org/developers/leio
