Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-02-03 20:58:29 UTC
No release since 2015. Package can be kept alive by dropping the X option.

What about py3_7 though?
Comment 1 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-02-10 20:29:47 UTC
I should point out that the dependency is broken by design.  Even if you disable 2.7, it implicitly forces pygtk, and with 2.7 being the only option for it...

How important is the gui then?
Comment 3 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-03-22 22:08:57 UTC
