...which in turn is blocking dev-qt/qtwebkit removal.

Davide, do you plan to keep this package in tree, which means adding a new package PyQtChart to qt proj?
Comment 2 Davide Pesavento gentoo-dev 2020-11-13 18:12:16 UTC
I stopped using eric a long time ago, and since then I haven't really been maintaining it. So if you're suggesting to last-rite it, I wouldn't complain. It's also not super easy to maintain, as it has no tests and ships with a number of bundled libraries.
