Description Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev 2015-04-26 18:12:15 UTC
Upstream support for Ruby 1.9 ended, therefore we'd like to remove ruby1.9 soon.

Your package depends on ruby:1.9, please use a recent ruby implementation and get this version stable, if the ruby:1.9 version had stable keywords.

See the note on the GDAL wiki ( :

* NOTE * : In GDAL 2.0, the Ruby bindings are now disabled (#5880) due to being broken at build time, and lack of volunteers to maintain them. 

So all references to ruby can be removed from the gdal-2.0.0 ebuild.

@sci-geo Please apply the patches here and drop the ruby support.

We're going to add IUSE="ruby" to use.mask soon.
