I have upgrade the package moinmoin from 1.8.8 to 1.9.6, I found some bug with WYSIWYG GUI Editor, now I want to downgrade it from 1.9.6 to 1.8.8.
Code:

# echo ">=www-apps/moinmoin-1.9.6" >> /etc/portage/package.mask"

and try to re-install the moinmoin:
Code:

# emerge --sync
# emerge -pv moinmoin

but the portage cannot roll back the package, and promt me the moinmoin-1.9.6 was masked.
Quote:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild N #] www-apps/moinmoin-1.9.6 USE="-vhosts" 0 kB

Total: 1 package (1 new), Size of downloads: 0 kB

The following mask changes are necessary to proceed:
(see "package.unmask" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by moinmoin (argument)
# /etc/portage/package.mask:
=www-apps/moinmoin-1.9.6

NOTE: The --autounmask-keep-masks option will prevent emerge
from creating package.unmask or ** keyword changes.


Are there any ways let me downgrade the moinmoin from 1.9.6 to 1.8.8 ?

You can find older ebuilds here http://sources.gentoo.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/gentoo-x86/www-apps/moinmoin/?hideattic=0 (just browse for correct arch if you use some other). You can then use local overlay and put ebuild there.
