I was not sure if PMS was the right place. It may be better suited in the devmanual. Though both seem to say the same thing, just more verbose in devmanual than than PMS. https://devmanual.gentoo.org/ebuild-writing/file-format/ The devmanual has the same info as in the PMS including on the suffix https://dev.gentoo.org/~ulm/pms/head/pms.html#x1-300003.2 Which is why I assumed PMS was the proper place. They seem to be the same at this time. None of it seemed Gentoo specific. -- William L. Thomson Jr.
