dev-python/basemap-1.0.7-r1 incompatibility with dev-python/matplotlib-2.2.2-r1
It fails on use with:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "map.py", line 23, in <module>
themap.fillcontinents(color = 'gainsboro',lake_color='steelblue')
File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/mpl_toolkits/basemap/__init__.py", line 1767, in fillcontinents
axisbgc = ax.get_axis_bgcolor()
AttributeError: 'AxesSubplot' object has no attribute 'get_axis_bgcolor'
According to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/49469409/basemap-attribute-python it is caused by dev-python/basemap being too out of date.
It supposedly works with basemap 1.1.0.
Old version removed. Please reopen if you can still reproduce.
