Description Azamat H. Hackimov 2020-06-29 19:37:07 UTC
gnome-base/libglade requires python2_7 only for ancient libglade-convert tool that required only for very old packages that not migrated to gnome-base/libglade-2. No need to keep it in ebuild. Any package that depends on gnome-base/libglade[tools], should be updated or treecleaned.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-06-29 19:56:41 UTC
$ grep -R libglade.*tools

Apparently there are none.
Comment 2 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2020-06-29 20:40:32 UTC
Actually whole package (ebuild and upstream) looks a bit crusty. Do we need another tracker? ;)
Comment 3 Azamat H. Hackimov 2020-06-29 21:05:28 UTC
Yeah, I'm worked on deleting of python2 and totally rewrote whole ebuild...
Anyway, here PR

> Anyway, here PR

I also see no revdeps on it, so IUSE=static-libs could be dropped, but it needs to be acked by gnome proj...
Comment 5 Azamat H. Hackimov 2020-06-30 15:25:42 UTC

Not sure about static-libs.

    gnome-base/libglade: drop legacy IUSE=tools, EAPI-6 bump
    * USE=tools was for libglade-convert, which was about converting from
      an ancient libglade UI file to a big less ancient format UI file.
      It uses python2 and isn't useful for conversion to GtkBuilder, so
      just drop it.
    * Port to EAPI-6
    * Use GNOME2_EAUTORECONF to not need AT_NOELIBTOOLIZE=yes hacks
    * Drop DISABLE_DEPRECATED sedding - gnome2.eclass takes care of it
    * Move to to silence QA warning
    * Add missing gtk-doc-am depend, needed due to eautoreconf; it was
      probably fine, as the tarball contains a copy, but better to ensure
      up to date is available on system.
