Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2022-11-06 11:30:48 UTC
Someone has been working on modernising kuickshow in a separate branch:

I wanted to make sure you are aware of it, in particular wrt Wayland/X11 compat.

A new release would also be a perfect opportunity to bump ebuild to EAPI-8. This package is one of only less than 30 in ::gentoo inheriting and ecm.eclass with EAPI-7.

Thank you for pointing this out, I completely missed it myself.
As you've already seen, we're currently working on some minor issues.

I'll create a new Kuickshow release for Gentoo next weekend. It'll be either just a minor update with the current state in master, or a major one with the new code.
Regardless, I'll update the ebuild to EAPI-8.

And apologies for always taking so long to reply to messages. I do read the eMail notifications but I tend to forget about replying if I don't do it right away.

No worries, I'm happy to sometimes be able to do my tiny bit in connecting some dots.
