Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-06-02 17:21:34 UTC
Archlinux have patches for dropping libgnomeui dep as well as port to gsettings and GTK3, see $URL, pick as you may.
Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-07-15 09:48:26 UTC
ping, this is one of two packages with a known patch, and one of three packages left that are not yet pmasked for removal.
Comment 2 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-08-18 21:05:03 UTC
It is apparently also broken by -fno-common. Any problem with the - rather large - patch from Arch or should it be treecleaned instead?
Comment 3 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2020-08-23 21:26:43 UTC
My recent plan was to fix these issues and then send a "packages up for grabs" with it included (without immediately dropping maintainership necessarily), and see from there. I think if you can do brief tests with the patchset, you should just revbump it yourself with the patchset at this point, you have my ok.

Comment 5 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-09-02 18:23:25 UTC
If you are waiting for me, I don't plan to get active with commits to this package. Looking up those patches must be enough.
