Description Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2021-08-02 12:24:14 UTC
Section 5.2.2 "The eapi file" says:
"If no eapi file is present, EAPI 0 shall be used."

Consider using the repository EAPI as a default instead, which is specified in profiles/eapi (see section 4.4 "The Profiles Directory"). This would allow removal of some 400 eapi files in individual profiles.
