Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2024-04-13 08:48:37 UTC
This package does not support Python 3.12.  Please test it with Python 3.12 as a matter of urgency as the default will change in early June, as per message on gentoo-dev:  Please check the information provided in the tracker.  Ask in #gentoo-python on IRC if need any help.
Comment 1 Ionen Wolkens gentoo-dev 2024-04-13 08:53:33 UTC
jack2-9999 had 3.12 since September 2023 (with required fixes) but there hasn't been a release yet.

Going to keep waiting but, if still nothing, will just do a snapshot when we're about to switch default (simpler than trying to backport the waf nonsense).

    media-sound/jack2: enable py3.12 + tidy a bit
    Still no release, so let's backport the waf bump which
    thankfully is less trouble than it looked.
    Does not touch anything but the build system. May be
    safer to revbump but rather not re-stabilize over this.
    Is fine on amd64 stable for a quick test.
