Comment 1 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-09-29 19:35:35 UTC
net-nds/nsscache should be ported to use bsddb3 (dev-python/bsddb3) instead of bsddb module.
Comment 2 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2010-03-30 22:31:43 UTC
bugday: python skills needed
Comment 3 Alec Warner archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2013-01-05 21:16:42 UTC
Did anyone file a bug upstream?

Comment 4 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2015-05-16 08:14:58 UTC
The nssdb backend is broken on any modern system; upstream no longer supports it.
