Description Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-06-04 07:50:33 UTC
Is it OK to stabilise sci-geosciences/qgis-2.18.7 and remove older?

That would allow removing a dev-qt/qtwebkit:4 (which is ancient and will not see any further security updates) consumer.
Comment 1 Andreas Plesch 2017-06-05 18:34:30 UTC
2.18.[4,6,7] crashes for some (most?) of us:

So please keep 2.18.3 around (and 2.14 as the current LTR release).

Upstream has released 2.18.9 by now.

The best time to remove qt4 may be when qgis 3 is released/stable.

Comment 3 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-06-30 21:12:12 UTC
We need to find a solution there. qt4-based qgis code is incredibly fragile, with USE=python I can't even build it successfully myself since 2.18.4.
Comment 4 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-09-09 12:41:07 UTC
USE=webkit dropped for 2.18.12 in git commit 460d238503099c2b47d3c4e2ed1a30b31f412faf
