updated patchset

needed to replace a line to make it work
Comment 3 Andrew Herr 2014-05-28 04:22:07 UTC
I copied the ebuilds and files out of the official tree and edited some things to make it build.
Comment 4 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-01-27 10:12:03 UTC
Current versions look to be 4.5, also, it looks like that version finally supports webkitgtk4 that is needed to prevent the usage of older slots that have security vulnerabilities
Comment 5 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-01-21 12:15:38 UTC
This is a bit urgent... the obsolete webkit-gtk version current versions are needing are vulnerable to many security holes
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-02-08 09:55:50 UTC
is anyone willing to proxy maintain this?
Comment 7 James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2017-02-08 10:00:35 UTC
The problem is less the package itself and more the revdeps. I know it's important but I just haven't had a chance to deal with this yet.
Comment 8 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2017-05-26 23:31:37 UTC
Any news on this? We need to drop the net-libs/webkit vulnerable versions
Comment 9 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-06-02 07:40:45 UTC
the only reverse dep relying on optional webkit support for SWT is vuze... with that one maybe bug 620404 could help on using a newer swt. For the other slots we should be able to kill its optional support though :/
Comment 11 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2018-02-13 13:45:37 UTC
ah, this was for the bump... ok, but the webkit-gtk issue was finally solved :)
