Description Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-04-17 13:34:09 UTC
net-libs/xulrunner is going away. bug 403415.

do you still want to try to port these old versions to npapi-sdk or are you fine with dropping the support of nsplugin from them?

rhythmbox-0.12.8-r1.ebuild:	nsplugin? ( net-libs/xulrunner )
rhythmbox-0.13.3.ebuild:	nsplugin? ( net-libs/xulrunner )

I wouldn't put much effort on old 0.xx rhythmbox releases... but the rest of the team knows more about rhythmbox-2.96 status and stability :-/
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2012-04-17 23:11:07 UTC
Erm, rhythmbox does not require xulrunner to build its nsplugin afaik or do I misunderstand the problem ?

The problem is that the 2 older ebuilds directly depend on net-libs/xulrunner. 
If they are really redudant dependencies, please just drop the deps and the bug is done.

The podcast/ directory has bundled np*.h headers for building the plug-in. It looks like xulrunner was never used and was simply a redudant dependency. I've tested this with 0.12.8-r1.
