You probably should ignore this announcement since it already had been
posted on this list but reappeared a second time. I'm experiencing this
problem with a lot of mails from fd that seem to be somehow duplicated,
sometimes with a lag between duplicates.

I don't know Gentoo, but could someone describe the reason for this
note? It seems something is very broken. Does that mean that version
string does not uniquely identify a version of package?

A package/ebuild is identified by the version uniquely. If there's no
typo I can't see what should be broken. Take a look at
packages.gentoo.org to find out more about individual ebuilds in the
Portage tree.
