Description Sebastian Pipping gentoo-dev 2019-09-14 13:44:14 UTC
I think we should stabilize 2.2.8 to get our users on safe ground.
Comment 1 Stabilization helper bot gentoo-dev 2019-09-14 13:59:38 UTC
An automated check of this bug failed - repoman reported dependency errors (6 lines truncated): 

> dependency.bad dev-libs/expat/expat-2.2.8.ebuild: BDEPEND: arm64(default/linux/arm64/17.0) ['app-text/docbook2X']
