Description Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2023-02-09 02:59:50 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 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2023-02-09 03:27:19 UTC
Looks like this package depends on libsoup:2.4 :(

It was ported to libsoup:3.0 in this upstream commit though:

    media-gfx/shotwell: Version bump to 0.31.7
    This is a development version that I wouldn't normally package, but it
    doesn't seem stable versions are forthcoming, and I'm sure users would
    appreciate not needing an additional webkit slot if possible.
