Description Jeff Gazso 2021-11-29 03:10:08 UTC
The dev-lang/nqp ebuild DESCRIPTION reads DESCRIPTION="Not Quite Perl, a Perl 6 bootstrapping compiler" but Perl 6 has been renamed to Raku for a few years now.

Something like DESCRIPTION="Not Quite Perl, a bootstrapping compiler for the Raku programming language" seems more appropriate.
