the DirectFB project was abandoned. They did not renew the dns, so at directfb.org there is something unrelated to the project.
For now the directfb package seems to compile but fusionsound needs an old directfb version that was removed for security concerns.
I'd suggest for now to mask and remove fusionsound.
11:37 <willikins> Reverse RDEPEND for media-libs/FusionSound: media-libs/libsdl2-2.0.4:fusionsound media-libs/libsdl2-2.0.5:fusionsound media-libs/xine-lib-1.2.6-r1:fusionsound media-libs/xine-lib-1.2.9999:fusionsound
A copy of the qa-report will be attacched here.
Be aware that the site disappeared in the past but later came back. There was also a developer announcement of upcoming work in November.
It's still not looking too good though.
Looks like the project moved to http://www.directfb.net and there's an announcement that they will be back soon: http://www.directfb.net/index.php?path=Main%2FNews&entry=2016-11-03-0.dok
@ Maintainer(s): If you don't want to/cannot cleanup please bump to a version which works with >=dev-libs/DirectFB-1.7.5.
FusionSound has been removed.
With Fusion sound removed, can we close this bug now, and hence be able to fix the block?
This still has many reverse deps :/
Can't we just mask the useflag globally instead of having to update all the packages first?
Well... with packages with far less reverse deps I have got in the past strong "complaints" (even insults) when doing that... today I didn't want to end up completely burned and quitting completely... then... I have preferred to warn maintainers of all reverse deps more and go ahead with other "easier" packages for today
