Description Christopher Díaz Riveros (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2017-08-28 16:20:06 UTC
netsurf contains dependencies on slot 0.10 from media-libs/gstreamer which is going to be removed from tree.

For more info refer to bug 550648

This bug should not be considered resolved until the previous revisions with dependencies are removed from the tree

I see 3.7 is still using gst-0.10, hence, we should probably consider disabling NETSURF_USE_VIDEO always

    www-client/netsurf: bump to 3.8
    I had to drop gstreamer because it depends on a vulnerable version.
