Description Joonas Niilola gentoo-dev 2023-05-20 16:14:40 UTC

upstream of net-libs/libsignal-protocol-c is archived: "This repository has been archived by the owner on Feb 13, 2022. It is now read-only. "

Seems like there's an active fork available:

which is packaged as net-libs/libomemo-c. I wonder if the fork is compatible with rdeps of libsignal-protocol-c, then we could replace the dependency and remove archived and "dead" libsignal-protocol-c? Any comments?

I think the Dino project hasn't yet made a release that uses this fork. I do see that the original project seems to have been removed as a git submodule here now:

I suspect that the next Dino release might allow Dino to stop being an rdep.
