The branch is problematic.  Nobody but the packager will know what
that actually is.  Is that on master?  On fixes/0.24 (which is it
based on version)?  These are questions that anyone using that ebuild
will get peppered with every time they report with the branch that
way.  We should be able to mostly help with that, but if it's not on a
branch we have, it makes it far more difficult.
