Great breakage with exactly zero value...

I wasn't expecting senseless comment on a Tracker from a developer, but needless to say, no talking in the Tracker.
Comment 3 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-10-12 04:24:34 UTC
What I usually try to find in such trackers is the canonical
way of fixing known widespread breakages. And always fail.
One of them seems to be related to bool / boolean type
difference in g-4.7+ (C++ code only?):

which basically means (taken from webkit breakage)

added multilib and security patched jpeg-8d-r1 since there are so many jpeg-9 bugs left here

Anyone following this bug:

I could really use some help with the open bugs, like bug 520674 for which I have repeatedly failed to provide a patch to
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-11-30 13:06:28 UTC
what did happen finally with this breakage? Do we plan to use jpeg-9 ever in stable... I am unsure if broken reverse deps are now "working" simply because most of us are using jpeg-turbo and, hence, not hitting this :/
Comment 7 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-11-30 13:10:45 UTC
I also doubt jpeg-9 will ever get used as it seems that release was really controversial... :/, I was wondering if we should simply remove it :|
Comment 8 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-02-12 21:40:14 UTC
I guess we can close this finally.
