parentgeneral-concepts/ebuild-revisions: add 'subscribing with :=' as revbump reason (diff)
general-concepts/ebuild-revisions: add 'updating USE flag defaults' in dep as revbump reason
Without revision bumping in cases where we change USE dep defaults in a dependency, the package manager will refuse an upgrade because newer versions of the dependency will not satisfy the requirements in the package. Closes: https://github.com/gentoo/devmanual/pull/232 Signed-off-by: Sam James <sam@gentoo.org> Signed-off-by: Ulrich Müller <ulm@gentoo.org>
