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.
