alpha, ppc64 and sparc needs to do bug 491876 before they can handle this one.
Comment 2 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2014-02-11 14:50:39 UTC
Test and stabilize (after handling bug 491876):

Comment 3 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-02-12 01:07:21 UTC
Stable for HPPA.
Comment 4 Richard Freeman gentoo-dev 2014-02-15 15:37:47 UTC
imagemagick- contains the dep:
jpeg2k? ( media-libs/openjpeg:2 )

openjpeg:2 is not stable.  I believe this requires stable masking, or it must be stabilized.
