A new major version of crossover is out.

Reproducible: Always

11.3.1 is out (no idea for how long).

And apparently you can get the official downloads for free for some "flock the vote" campaign, so it's much easier for cash-strapped devs to get access to the official files this time. :)

It gets the maintainer 12 months of updates, and then we are back to the same situation as now.

IMHO, unless there exists a gentoo developer who is planning on keeping an active crossover subscription for several years and is willing to maintain the ebuilds, crossover-office-pro should not be in portage at all.

i was for a while, but then found i wasn't using it, so i wasn't willing to pay just to be a maintainer

someone needs to post an updated Manifest file

Crossover Office Professional was discontinued in the name of product consolidation. What was once Crossover Standard, Crossover Office Professional and Crossover games is now simply Crossover as of version 11. In addition, Crossover is now at version 12.1.2, its license terms have changed and version bumps no longer work due to a completely rewritten installer.

I have committed app-emulation/crossover-bin-12.1.2 to the tree to reflect the consolidated product line. That should take care of this bug, unless someone really wants version 11.
