Last commit in Jan 2021, and only test dep of dev-python/textdistance — let's add it to treecleaner queue but wait a few days in case anything happens.
Comment 3 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2022-12-23 13:36:25 UTC
Small update:

1) the issue is actually fixed upstream, it didn't make it to a release yet

2) upstream indicated hope for a release by year's end

3) it turned out that textdistance's tests aren't using abydos after all, at least with the current deselect/ignore list

I'm going to check if test_external indeed needs deselecting.
Comment 4 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2022-12-23 13:45:40 UTC
Ok, so unless I'm mistaken, textdistance's tests would pass just fine, if only abydos weren't broken due to numpy imports.
