Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-12-06 14:41:04 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 is also relying on old gstreamer-0.10 (bug #629186), then, I am not sure if maybe we should treeclean this :|

Comment 1 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2017-12-17 13:17:29 UTC
Please don't add treecleaner without maintainer ack; other treecleaner members than you go p.masking then without question at any random point of time.
There is a 3.0-beta1 that solves all this, I have a bump locally ready from yesterday, but need to still review EAPI bump and some python eclass usage. It both ports to introspection and gstreamer 1.0.
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-12-17 14:36:15 UTC
To prevent that maskings is better to simply reply and post a comment like you have done now... the problem is that many many times maintainers are simply not replying at all

(we still have time as others need to be handled... hopefully at that time we will be able to stabilize newer version)
Comment 5 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2017-12-28 16:58:51 UTC
That's why I specifically did a "Bug:", not "Closes:", as it's not fixed until the old ebuilds are gone.
