Description Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2023-02-09 02:55:13 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.
