Description Matthias Maier gentoo-dev 2014-10-25 22:38:18 UTC
media-libs/lcms:0 is unmaintained, has seen no releases since 2009, and (according to upstream) is affected by unspecified serious security issues. Please 

* either upgrade your package to use media-libs/lcms:2, 
* or hard-disable an optional dependency on media-libs/lcms:0, 
* or mask your package for removal.

Thank you!

imaging is the package taken over by pillow.  imaging is a leftover that will in the end be cleaned.  Just as well that occur and save  this effort
Comment 2 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2014-12-26 20:10:47 UTC
Package will be masked for security reasons on 30/12/2014.
