Description Steve 2007-08-02 14:14:56 UTC
Is there a reason we do not have python 2.5 available on amd64? even as a ~ masked package? I know it supposedly breaks certain python packages, but it is too easy to slot python and have multiple versions installed.  

Reproducible: Always

It already is keyworded ~amd64, will remain masked until ready (Bug 148333).
Comment 2 Marijn Schouten (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-08-02 14:19:51 UTC
We have it:

eix -e python
[I] dev-lang/python
     Available versions:
        (2.3)   2.3.5-r2 2.3.5-r3 (~)2.3.6 (~)2.3.6-r2
        (2.4)   2.4.3-r1 2.4.3-r4 (~)2.4.4 2.4.4-r4
        (2.5)   [M](~)2.5-r2 [M](~)2.5.1-r2

excuse me.  It was hard masked and that still doesn't make sense.

You haven't really read bug 148333, have you?
