Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-01-23 01:11:39 UTC
Qt4 is dead and going away. Since there is no newer release available, the only option to keep this feature would be to check if it maybe builds with Qt5 with little effort. Or inquire @upstream what are their plans.
Comment 1 Sławek Lis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-01-24 10:15:12 UTC
I've updated with new patches that makes silo building fine with qt5.
It has to be checked if it's working fine anyway.

Updated ebuild is put with revision -r1, so when everything would work fine I'll remove old versions.
Comment 2 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-03-03 16:52:25 UTC
Can we proceed with cleanup here?
