Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2024-02-28 16:37:08 UTC
Reasons:

- based off ancient Chromium 87 and barely usable as a browser
- upstream struggling to keep up with security patches
- already starting to bundle more and more as it fails to build w/ modern deps
- probably no chance of python3_12 support
- let's try to minimise the need for dual qtwebengine:{5,6} installs fast

No talking.

> - probably no chance of python3_12 support
If really had to, probably a remote chance with what I had (formerly) done in [1] which turned out to be unnecessary thanks to chromium fixing it.

Albeit, I agree that getting rid of it earlier than later once reasonable seem like the right path forward.
