In order for Gentoo Linux to properly support side-by-side installation of
different versions of Lua (including LuaJIT), please migrate this package as
to lua.eclass (for packages which should support multiple Lua implementations
at the same time, i.e. most likely Lua modules) or lua-single.eclass (for
packages which only have to support one Lua implementation at a time). For
details, consult documentation of respective eclasses as well as
already-migrated ebuilds in the tree.
Please note that since slotted dev-lang/lua is currently masked, your
migrated ebuilds should be masked as well. There is a section of package.mask,
created in September 2020, which you can use for this purpose so that it will
be easier in the future to unmask them all in one go.
Thank you in advance for your effort!
This has been fixed in git now and there is a PR for upstream at https://github.com/haproxy/haproxy/pull/942
Oops. Wrong bug tab. Sorry.
USE=lua is masked for this package (it is not compatible with lua-5.1) so while it will eventually have to be migrated to the correct eclass, it does not block the migration to slotted Lua. Resolving this as NEEDINFO as a substitute for LATER, same as with other packages in the same situation.
