Description Philippe Chaintreuil 2019-01-15 14:31:38 UTC
Geo::IP (aka dev-perl/Geo-IP) stopped receiving updates as of April 2018.  We should move to GeoIP2::Reader::Database which supports the newer GeoIP2 databases.  SpamAssassin supports it.

I'm not clear if there's a pre-existing ebuild for GeoIP2::Reader::Database.

See also: Gentoo bug #674852 mentions that dev-perl/GeoIP updates no longer work and everything should move to GeoIP2 capable libraries.
