Description Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-06-04 06:35:40 UTC
app-editors/fb2edit depends on dev-qt/qtwebkit:4 which is ancient and will never see any security updates.

Since fb2edit appears to have a dead upstream and no Qt 5 port maybe it's time to start thinking about last riting it.
