IS that an actual thing on mips?
Comment 2 matoro archtester 2023-03-08 15:07:17 UTC
I should clarify a little bit on these keywordreqs...

1.  This is just a placeholder bug for reconciling the tree (bug 896096)
2.  If you don't believe this is relevant on mips, or if this is a package that frequently needs new deps keyworded and you are concerned about maintenance, then you can mask the reason it is pulled in (media-video/ffmpeg[frei0r]) and close this bug that way
3.  If you don't have  any opinion then just don't do anything - I am personally testing and pushing these keywords myself, so it doesn't actually need maintainer effort
4.  For packages like this one where I am not familiar with the functionality and therefore don't know whether or not it's applicable to the arch, I am just using existing keywords as a guide.  I see that this package is keyworded on hppa, loong, ppc, riscv, etc which are reasonably obscure enough that there wouldn't be any reason to mask it on mips if it compiles & passes unit tests.  Should it not do that I will close this bug by masking.

Does that help?
