Description Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-07 16:15:58 UTC
The only thing keeping xulrunner in tree is stable version of gnome-extra/yelp, so once that is handled, rest of the reverse deps will get masked with it.

Please act on this by porting to net-misc/npapi-sdk, punting USE="firefox", or punting the package.
Comment 1 Ian Stakenvicius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-08 13:13:03 UTC
I attempted to convert USE="firefox" for USE="nsplugin" (and build the npapi-plugin module) but it seems that npapi-plugin isn't actually supported by the build system at this time.  Probably best to drop USE="firefox" entirely.

A simple conversion to NPAPI-SDK isn't viable as the firefox module(s) links to libxul.
Comment 2 Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-08 13:38:26 UTC
Please wait. I am preparing a version bump which has a reworked firefox support. which is hopefully xulrunner free.
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-21 05:28:15 UTC
ping? only this package, and "yelp" left
