Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-02-08 09:57:35 UTC
We are going to kill the old webkit-gtk slots because they are dead and vulnerable, hence, we would need the optional support for hotot to be disabled

Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-03-03 00:50:45 UTC
Same for Qt4WebKit, while we're at it.

Hotot is discontinued upstream since Feb 9 2014, though:
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-06-02 08:08:00 UTC
Looking to bug 476890 (that won't be resolved due to upstream stopping its development), maybe we should treeclean it.
Comment 3 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2017-06-11 22:45:41 UTC
ping. And to be clear, webkit-gtk:3 has to go away as importantly as webkit-gtk:2 usage. Also qtwebkit:4.

    net-misc/hotot: revbump dropping USE="gtk2 gtk3 qt4" (bug 608606).
    Package-Manager: Portage-2.3.6, Repoman-2.3.2

Comment 6 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2017-06-23 05:29:52 UTC
9999 has the deps of all of that still there.
Also this bug isn't fixed for qtwebkit4-removal tracker purposes until all revisions depending on that have exited the tree - that is the newer version is stabilized and the previous stable is removed (pacho had removed the webkit-gtk deps there separately before).
