Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-05-23 16:42:11 UTC
1) which in turn singlehandedly blocks removal of deprecated GNOME 2 era packages:


2) it is one of two packages depending on dev-perl/gnome2-vfs-perl (the other one being unmaintained app-misc/gcstar).

3) and via gnome-base/libgnomeui it is indirectly blocking gnome-base/libgnome-keyring removal in bug 713010.

Upstream development seems to have come to a halt, unless it is happening somewhere else than launchpad these days?
Comment 1 Alexey 2020-06-18 14:29:44 UTC
I merged the patch upstream to remove the perl gnome2 dependency, expecting a release ~soon.
