Description dB 2019-03-19 03:44:42 UTC
Should this ebuild track edk2 development upstream? Seems version update is required to bring in line.
Comment 1 Matthias Maier gentoo-dev 2019-07-28 20:57:56 UTC
Upstream for a long time did not do any regular versioning. The "_p" idiom tells you that this is a "post 2017" release done at a particular day. I will switch to the new upstream release number YYYYMM for the next version bump.
