Description Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2018-06-10 06:45:50 UTC
Apparently bug 291328 disabled gdb python macros, instead of figuring something out to install them without breaking gdb.
For easier development with GObject, we should support them properly, so they work and help debugging.
Due to the python deps, maybe it can be done in the new planned glib-utils package without risk of breaking things, as we can keep rdepending on python there?
