See tracker.
Comment 1 Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev 2017-03-04 11:00:30 UTC
revelation cannot use pycryptodome as a drop-in replacement due to use of deprecated randompool. Upstream has not been active for years. So that leaves a gentoo-specific patch.
Comment 2 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2017-03-04 12:22:26 UTC
Is there still a use for this package? Maybe it's time to lastrite it.
Comment 3 Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev 2017-04-02 05:44:39 UTC
I'm still using this as a password manager so let's not treeclean it right away :-)
Comment 4 Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev 2017-07-15 08:41:26 UTC
x11-misc/revelation-0.4.14-r2 has been added with patches to make it use pycryptodome.

maybe that revision could be stabilized finally :)
