# Seemant Kulleen <> (07 Nov 2006)
# Masked because there's a digest mismatch, and who knows what the real
# checksum is supposed to be

You've p.masked the only ebuild left from 1.2* series. A downgrade will produce _horribly_ broken cups plus kill all applications that link to it. There's no documented way to downgrade the thing, please never ever do this again because of a such a trivial thing like a digest mismatch... It's lots better to get 100 dupes on broken digest than killing printing for user by forcing a nightmare-like downgrade.

I unmasked it by popular demand (named jakub).
Comment 2 Ciaran McCreesh 2006-11-08 03:31:42 UTC
Did you fix the digest issues?

It's already been fixed before by genstef, works just fine here.

  08 Nov 2006; Seemant Kulleen <> +files/cups-1.2.5.patch,
  restoring 1.2.5 until the distfile issue is properly sorted

^^^ I had restore 1.2.5

So if you didn't see it in your sync, then something else is wrong. Of course I wouldn't mask the only 1.2* series without making sure there was an adequate replacement.

Of course I didn't see 1.2.5 in my sync, since genstef removed it again after fixing the digest issue. How was he supposed to know that you've p.masked 1.2.6 meanwhile?

Eh... unmasked, closing.
