So in working on a large community project there are changes that sometime slide past the guy working on package prototype files... The previous four or five years while doing software release engineering I dealt with and used static (or basically) prototype files for building packages. I have to tell you that I am making the switch over to using pkgproto (1). We made the decision to simplify how we were breaking up the files into packages and move over to dynamic prototype files. In the end the same bits are delivered and it make my life a lot less messed up.
For that it's worth.
