Description John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-05-27 21:53:30 UTC
net-im/err should support Python 3.7. Further, it appears there have been 6 releases since the release we have an ebuild for in Gentoo.
Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-07-29 13:13:52 UTC
Depends on unmaintained dev-python/sleekxmpp, please consider pick up that package or investigate if net-im/err can make use of supposed replacement package dev-python/slixmpp.
