Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-04-19 14:35:14 UTC
The packages are stuck on py3.6 which means they will be pain once we switch to 3.7.  Please test them on 3.7 *and* 3.8 (so we don't to revisit this in a few months), and update PYTHON_COMPAT appropriately.  If it doesn't work, please either fix it, remove Python or issue last rites.  Please consider this urgent.

    media-plugins/gst-transcoder: bump to 1.14.1, fix LICENSE
    There is also a 1.16.0, but that requires gst1.16, and we want to
    fast-stabilize gst-transcoder to fix pitivi to not be so completely
    As we now use meson.eclass properly (back when previous was added, that
    didn't exist and we used the compatibility ./configure from upstream that
    called meson), we don't dep on python ourselves anymore and if there
    are any remaining CC or other toolchain env var honoring issues, it's
    not our problem, but a generic meson.eclass related one.
