The net-analyzer/pnp4nagios has keywords for amd64, ppc, ppc64, sparc, and x86. I've just removed the ancient nagios-3.x due to a security bug, and that leaves one of pnp4nagios's dependencies unsolvable:
|| ( <net-analyzer/nagios-core-4
If they're not going to fix their Nagios 4.x support, Icinga should have (at least) the same set of keywords so that the dependency above can be met on those arches. Right now, icinga and icinga2 lack ppc, ppc64, and sparc out of the list above.
If those keywords can be added, please CC the arches. If it would be easier, the keywords only need to be added for icinga2 to satisfy the dependency.
Lets go for both if we are able
add ~ppc ~ppc64 keywords
Sorry to be annoying, but we have a year-old security vulnerability in Nagios that I can't fix until this is done. Could sparc@ please bump this towards the top of the list?
I doubt you will get a response from sparc team. That is the reason they were dropped to a security non-supported arch.
Obviously I might be proven wrong ... but that has been the case for most keywords and stabilizations.
Let's forget sparc now that it's been dropped to experimental. I'll file a stablereq for the other arches now and then I can finally get rid of nagios-3.x.
