Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-01-13 19:26:13 UTC
Qt4 is dead and going away, and it seems there has been nothing going on with this package since 2011 either. Unless the code is simple enough to be already buildable with Qt5, we will have to let go of this package soon.
Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-02-04 19:23:36 UTC
Homepage fixed in f0b47acf6d4883a1b4de3e23c2523df3d360596a.

Updated URL with upstream port-to-Qt5-PR.

Please consider these commits. Also, much improved buildsystem -> clean ebuild.
