Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2023-07-08 06:49:56 UTC
This package still uses the legacy eclass code paths.  These paths are deprecated and pose a significant maintenance cost.  Please update the package to use PEP517 build mode.  For more information, please see the Python Guide, particularly; https://projects.gentoo.org/python/guide/migration.html#migrating-to-pep-517-builds

2. Please make sure to do the migration in a new revision in ~arch, partly because of 1.
