Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2021-08-26 14:16:39 UTC
Kross is going away.
Comment 1 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2023-03-29 11:27:02 UTC
"Currently the KMail Account Wizard depends on Kross (which depends on the deprecated QtScript) to allow resources to "script" the account wizard flow."

    package.mask: Last rite kde-apps/kross-interpreters
    Only supports imminently-EOL ruby27, depends on obsolete QtScript instead
    of QML. Support for other languages was removed long ago, e.g. python support
    is stuck on python2-only. Kross itself is on the chopping block too.
