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).
Did you fix the digest issues?

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

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.
