Come on. EAPI was updated to 3, and removal of the EPREFIX assignments
are part of that.

I thought the same initially, then I realised that Petteri probably
meant that "Update EAPI" doesn't really say anything. Mention EAPI=3
in the commit message and it is all clear. (From the ChangeLog
perspective an EAPI bump/update shouldn't really matter much as it
shouldn't change anything for the user.)

I was thinking it could have been something along the lines of "Fix
dependencies and cleanup the ebuild by making use of EAPI 3." For me the
connection between EAPI 3 and the prefix was not obvious so probably not
for everyone else either. I agree with Fabian that ChangeLog should not
be verbose about things that don't affect users in any way. For that
kind of stuff you can be verbose in the CVS commit message.
