Description pva 2021-11-08 10:56:16 UTC
dev-python/nose does not work with >=dev-python/setuptools-58 and >=python-3.9, also there are mentions upstream that it is deprecated for nose2, and some projects (see same ticket below) already migrated to nose2.

nose2 is not a replacement, and given upstream's attitude I wish nobody would ever use nose2.  pytest is a reasonable replacement.
