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.
Looks like this package depends on libsoup:2.4 :(
The package has been ported to libsoup:3.0 and webkit-gtk:4.1 upstream in https://gitlab.com/Remmina/Remmina/-/commit/edbaeb1b588edc0e969b0eedd731758aad369391, which is available in 1.4.28.
I'm confused why v1.4.29 in Gentoo doesn't depend on libsoup:3.0 or webkit-gtk:4.1.
Libsoup usage, via the "news" feature, was removed recently:
Oddly the build system still checks for libsoup but as far as I can see, it's not used or linked to at all. I think they may be keeping the libsoup checks in place in case they start using it for another feature.
I can update the webkit-gtk dep to 4.1
