Description Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-10-15 11:49:26 UTC
What is the difference between media-video/atomicparsley-wez and media-video/atomicparsley?

* Versioning scheme looks the same with -wez being slightly ahead.
* -wez's HOMEPAGE seems to be outdated as its versions stopped at 0.9.4 but its SRC_URI points to which has the current 0.9.6.

Was the original one abandoned and forked?

In resolving bug #668624, should I point to -wez as it's apparently better maintained?

Are any security bugs known for -wez that might also affect non-wez?

    Use media-video/atomicparsley instead which has been switched to the fork.
