#56858: p5-graveyard, py-graveyard don't accommodate epoch
 Reporter:  ryandesign  |      Owner:  (none)
     Type:  defect      |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal      |  Milestone:
Component:  ports       |    Version:
 Keywords:              |       Port:  p5-graveyard, py-graveyard
 The p5-graveyard and py-graveyard ports accommodate each obsolete subport
 specifying a `version` and `revision` but not an `epoch`. The consequence
 of this is that if a port that had previously specified an `epoch` greater
 than `0` is added to the graveyard, the replacement does not actually
 work, because as far as MacPorts can see, the port's `epoch` has
 decreased. This happened for example when
 py26-webhelpers was made obsolete].
