We would like to reduce the number of net-libs/webkit-gtk slots.
Please check if it is possible to migrate from net-libs/webkit-gtk:4 to net-libs/webkit-gtk:4.1.
This should be possible (with minor build-system patching, see https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/commit/?id=ea0bb7cd3b47dd02d964a5c27c010eeaea8cc8b1 for example) if net-libs/libsoup:2.4 is not pulled in by the package or any of its dependencies.
FWIW, switching to webkit-gtk:4.1 is just a quality-of-life improvement for users that may allow them to get back down to 1 slot of webkit-gtk.
Removing dependencies on webkit-gtk:4 is certainly not critical, so if it's not possible to do at the moment or if removing these features is undesirable, no worries. I just wanted to get it on people's radar.
A level of quality I aspire to. Having to compile 3 copies of webkit-gtk each time is not fun. Alas I think it will still be 2 copies for a while - and now a start data for GTK 5 development is announced...
We only lose 2 plugins because of libsoup-2.4 and one of those is an update checker that I am glad to remove, the other for uploading to pastebin sites but with no relevant code updates for 5.5 years I wonder how useful it is.
I wasn't going to push for stabilisation of this one but let's give people who want the markdown plugin the option (everyone else can just "-markdown" anyway). I have installed it.
