Description Matthias Maier gentoo-dev 2019-09-03 22:15:18 UTC
The gmsh ebuild needs some attention regarding the following QA issues:

 - There seems to be an automagic dependency on MPI as reported in

 - As pointed out by asturm: sci-libs/med has ${PYTHON_DEPS} without any python eclass?

Updated, not yet finished update to add more options.

Comments and feedback welcome.

Note, petsc USE flag (and therefore also slepc) doesn't currently work on my machine, because I couldn't successfully build petsc.
