Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-06-04 17:06:32 UTC
dev-util/ninja-ide depends on dev-qt/qtwebkit:4 which is ancient and will never see any security updates.

If there's no upstream fix available, it might be time to remove this package.

It looks like a QT5 migration was started, but never completed.  I think this project has mostly been abandoned by its developers.  It was a neat IDE, but seems all but dead.  It's probably time for removal.
