Description Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2023-02-09 02:52:44 UTC
We would like to reduce the number of net-libs/webkit-gtk slots.

Please check if it is possible to migrate from net-libs/webkit-gtk:4 to net-libs/webkit-gtk:4.1.

This should be possible (with minor build-system patching, see for example) if net-libs/libsoup:2.4 is not pulled in by the package or any of its dependencies.
Comment 1 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2023-02-09 06:58:15 UTC
I fear that we're out of luck here. pdfpc depends on libsoup-2.4, and a commit for 3.0 support was reverted last month:
