> We also don't currently list the epoch, in the vast majority of ports. Sounds like you're suggesting we always list the epoch, even when it's its default value of 0. Possibly you're also saying we should always list the revision, even when it's its default value of 0. I think it's nice when a portfile is as simple as possible, not listing any of the defaults (because they're defaults) and only listing things that differ from the defaults.
How does base/Tcl handle the concept of defaults?
Is it done by simply seeing if the value is set in the Portfile? Does it then check if the value is different?
