Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2019-04-28 22:13:59 UTC
However, git master has several commits porting away from it to QTextBrowser:
Comment 1 Brian G. 2019-10-02 12:02:16 UTC
This project is discontinued upstream.  It has been forked into the Oscar project.

See this bug report for more details:

Oscar has patches to remove dependencies on the web viewer, which is typically used for displaying help/documentation.
Comment 2 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-02-16 19:08:50 UTC
Comment 3 Richard Freeman gentoo-dev 2020-02-16 20:34:17 UTC
Per Brian's comment this package should probably just be treecleaned in favor of its replacement.  I'll go ahead and remove it...

sleepyhead has been removed from the tree - upstream is dead and has been replaced by oscar (not yet in the repo).
