Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-02-13 16:47:09 UTC
games.eclass is now deprecated and must not be used in new ebuilds. For this reason, gnome-games.eclass either needs to remove its inherit or be deprecated altogether.

I think the latter option would be preferred since AFAICS it would just be equivalent to gnome2.eclass after removing games.eclass stuff.

It was added when we were forced to use games.eclass for the installation of that games... if now games.eclass must not be used (well... last time I asked the people in games team were still wanting to install the games in their specific locations), this eclass can simply die
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-06-29 11:02:29 UTC
All the gnome 3.20 games have been moved away of games.eclass usage... I will check the remaining when I finish all the Gnome 3.20 work :S
