@xmw, are you still maintaining this package? It's a few versions behind already, and you don't seem to have touched it since 2013. Should it be announced maintainer-needed maybe?
Comment 2 Christopher Díaz Riveros (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2017-08-28 16:53:03 UTC
Adding blocker since winswitch depens on dev-python/gst-python which depends on vulnerable slot 0.10 from gstreamer which is going to be removed from tree.

For more info refer to bug 550648.

This bug should not be considered resolved until the previous revisions with dependencies are removed from the tree.
Comment 3 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-06-03 11:08:06 UTC
Last upstream release in 2013. This should probably be treecleaned.
