For example, I found a new bug in kde-base/kwrite-4.14 is quite annoying. I want to downgrade this single package to kde-base/kwrite-4.13. Is this possible? I meet the dependency problem from kde-meta when I try to do this.

I don't believe it is possible or a good approach. Forcing that to happen would require using your own meta package. It would probably be easier to find the problem and apply a user patch as a temporary workaround.

Another possibility is using the live ebuilds where you can adjust the environment variables used by the git eclass to check out a specific tag or commit.

Using a live ebuild seems to a good idea. Thanks for the help!

Don't forget to file a bug about your issue. We can track the upstream bug and backport a fix when it's available.
