Description Brian Evans Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2019-06-14 14:44:54 UTC
Beginning in PHP 7.4, the wddx extension will be moved to the PECL library and the USE flag will be removed.

If this package is to continue, the pecl-wddx package would have to be introduced and the RDEPEND changed to:
|| ( (>=dev-lang/php-7.4[apache2,cli,gd,mysql?,postgres?,session,snmp,sockets] dev-php/pecl-wddx) <dev-lang/php-7.4[apache2,cli,gd,mysql?,postgres?,session,snmp,sockets,wddx]

wddx is not very popular.  I do not wish to maintain this outdated extension.  Please contact the PHP team if more discussion is necessary.

Sorry.. the RDEPEND for PHP should be:

|| ( ( >=dev-lang/php-7.4[apache2,cli,gd,mysql?,postgres?,session,snmp,sockets] dev-php/pecl-wddx ) <dev-lang/php-7.4[apache2,cli,gd,mysql?,postgres?,session,snmp,sockets,wddx] )

No one seems to care and this will be broken in about 12 months from now.

Please fix or consider cleaning.
