Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2022-01-02 03:52:26 UTC
* the package has open bugs, is outdated and has no maintainer
* a simple bump to the latest upstream release revealed many compiler warnings and errors, which I could not report, because there is no bug tracker
* this package will need an active maintainer to keep in the tree. The project would benefit from a repository with open bug tracker.

* If you are interested in fixing this package, have a look for patches on for a start.

Reproducible: Always

This is a pity. It's a great little program. Although I have non wish to step up as a maintainer, I wouldn't be offended either if my ebuild would replace the current one. It builds the latest version, and supports a few use flags.
