Description Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2023-02-09 03:02:33 UTC
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 for example) if net-libs/libsoup:2.4 is not pulled in by the package or any of its dependencies.
Comment 1 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2023-02-09 03:18:21 UTC
Looks like this package depends on libsoup:2.4 :(

There's an upstream issue requesting it be ported to :3.0 here:
Comment 2 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2023-06-27 23:14:59 UTC
I asked upstream and they integrated the change and released v1.15.0 with it.
Comment 3 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2023-07-09 13:22:06 UTC
nE0sIghT: can you add the new version?
Comment 4 nE0sIghT 2023-07-09 13:27:22 UTC
No, I don't add unstable versions usually. Next stable series is 1.16.
Comment 5 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2023-09-05 19:48:46 UTC
Any idea whether a stable release is going to come... this year?
Comment 6 nE0sIghT 2023-09-06 17:26:28 UTC
2 unstable versions were released currently. There were 13 with previous unstable branch.
I will add 1.15 to my overlay and test it for a couple of weeks.
If this issue is blocker and 1.15.2 will be stable enough we can try to go with it.

I've merged the PR and changed s/Closes/Bug/ in order to leave this bug open until there are no versions in-tree that use webkit-gtk:4.
