Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-12-28 16:37:04 UTC
Qt4 is dead and going away. vacuum upstream have not made a release in a long time, but our 9999 ebuild is already qt5 based for a while, and this package needs to move on soon.

It is also the last rdep of: dev-qt/qtlockedfile[qt4]

@reagentoo, do you think 9999 is stable enough to create a snapshot from it? If you take on the task, since we haven't heard from maksbotan in all that time, I would add you as proxy-maintainer of the package if you are still interested.

Hello! Vacuum-IM developers plan to make release on Qt5 in the near future.
Comment 2 reagentoo 2018-01-03 16:32:19 UTC
Well. Now we have Qt5 snapshot vacuum-
Comment 3 reagentoo 2018-01-03 16:41:36 UTC
@asturm Could you tell me, what ebuild format for this version? I'll make a commit to the tree.
Comment 4 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-01-03 18:27:12 UTC
File format could be

1) vacuum-1.3.0_alpha_pre20180103
2) vacuum-1.3.0_pre20180103

1) if you think there will be an actual _alpha release by upstream, 2) if you think they just appended -Alpha for educational purpose and will continue to use the -yyyymmdd suffix format until the proper release. I'd probably go with 2).

Comment 6 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-02-16 10:00:49 UTC
Do you think this snapshot is good enough for us to drop old qt4-based? Not much has happened upstream since then.
Comment 7 reagentoo 2018-02-16 10:09:46 UTC
I think you can drop old qt4-based.
The latest Qt5-alpha version is quite stable.
