Description Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-02-01 11:20:55 UTC

It's using the old SLOT of x11-libs/fox. Can this be cleaned out?
Comment 1 Hans de Graaff gentoo-dev Security 2010-02-02 19:16:11 UTC
Nothing depends on it, and I don't see a specific reason to keep it around. Matti might have an opinion on this, as he seemed to care about fxruby in bug 88924. 
Comment 2 Matti Bickel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-03-12 23:44:46 UTC
Well, i'm not using it but since i somehow happen to maintain x11-libs/fox i try to take care of it's bindings as well :)

And no, i don't care about 1.4 anymore (and so is upstream... Lyle has been responsive on issues with it but there really isn't much drive behind it given the 1.4 line is like 4 years old). It will be removed together with fox-1.4, which will happen when fxscintilla doesn't use it anymore.
