Description tastytea 2021-09-22 07:42:24 UTC
gitea didn't have a maintainer for a while now. The current version has vulnerabilities¹. I think it is better to remove it.

I do use it and I package it in ::tastytea, but I don't want to “officially” maintain it in ::gentoo because I know too little about go and JavaScript to fix the open and future bugs. Also I think proxied maintainership does not work well for relatively fast moving software with frequent security fixes.

Fixed version in tree.

I still think it is a bad idea to have this package unmaintained in ::gentoo. The project fixes security vulnerabilities almost every month.
