Description Peter Gustafson 2021-12-17 21:41:55 UTC
Currently sci-libs/suitesparse is at 5.4.0.  This blocks recent sci-libs/petsc (>3.14.6) which require >sci-libs/suitesparse-5.6.0.  There may be others.

suitesparse is a metapackage and only one of the sub-packages has actually been bumped (sci-libs/cholmod-3.0.14).  Related bug is here:

There are other packages in the suite which gentoo currently does not ship. (This bump request keeps the status quo in that regard).

Another subpackage requires a change, but it is just the version numbers associated with the meta package.  (sci-libs/suitesparseconfig-5.10.1).  See attachments.

Reproducible: Always

suitesparseconfig-5.10.1.tar.bz2 updates suitesparseconfig-5.4.0.tar.bz2 from

It uses the corresponding files from github tag 5.10.1

The ebuild for sci-libs/suitesparseconfig-5.10.1.ebuild currently subs a SRC_URI from sage to host instead on my university machine.  This likely should be removed once the tar.bz2 lives on a gentoo host.

Is the version pinning to sci-libs/cholmod-3.0.13 even necessary?
