Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-04-19 20:14:04 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.

I emerge --sync'ed yesterday (08/28) and I'm still seeing the "package masked, removal in 30 days" notice.

M. Gorny's commit on 08/22 looks like it was possible to disable Python support in this application and sidestep the issue (even if at the cost of libfityk Python bindings).

Is this package still going to disappear from portage on 08/22 +30 days?
Comment 4 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-09-01 09:04:19 UTC
I'm sorry, I must've forgotten to remove it from the list after updating the ebuild.  Will unmask it in a few minutes.
