Description Michael Orlitzky gentoo-dev 2022-01-30 14:49:26 UTC
Arches, please test and stabilize the latest version of singular. Bug 830279 would be the only problem and is already fixed upstream, but I've never hit it while building this version of singular. So you'll have to let me know if a backport is necessary.

I forgot about the new flags...

I've fixed the one open polymake bug and we can stabilize that at some point.

I was going to put USE=julia in package.use.stable.mask for now, but it looks to me like the upstream ./configure check is a stub (it defines a constant that is never used and doesn't check if julia is present on the system). If so we can drop it for now to make the stabilization easier. Francois, does it look the same to you?

Just restating a private message to Michael Orlitzky so there is record on bugzilla. The julia flag currently enable no code and is just dangling for future work. 

The option can safely be ignored and the use flag should be removed for the time being.

    sci-mathematics/singular: drop USE=julia in a new revision.
    The upstream ./configure flag for julia doesn't actually do anything
    for the moment, and it's making stabilization more tricky. So let's
    just drop it.
