Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-12-06 14:39:00 UTC
I was reviewing reverse deps of all gnome-common-python bindings and I saw that this package relies on many of them.

I have seen this looks mostly stalled since 2013... hence, it doesn't seem it will get ported out of them. I am also unsure about the status of whole Flickr.

I would then suggest to simply treeclean this if possible
Comment 1 Gilles Dartiguelongue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-12-23 10:36:39 UTC
sobhan recently added media-gfx/frogr to the tree which is likely a good enough replacement for postr.
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-12-28 12:41:42 UTC
I have seen we need to adapt eog-plugins... but I don't know it it can use frogr or its flickr plugin will need to be disabled... I will need to check later then

Debian faced this issue and it seems they simply disabled postr eog-plugins plugin :/
