Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2019-08-04 20:46:25 UTC
The package uses python-r1.  However:

1. FWICS it does not have a runtime dep on Python.

2. It doesn't use any of the multi-implementation APIs.

This makes me believe the use of python-r1 is entirely incorrect.  If the package uses Python at build time only, python-any-r1 is the way to go.

As a side note, 'python3*' passed to python_setup is entirely redundant, given that no other Python version is supported by the ebuild.
