Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2024-03-22 13:23:48 UTC
`distutils_enable_tests` is deprecated and going to be removed from the eclass (following upstream deprecation of the same thing).  Please switch to some other unittest provider, e.g. `unittest` or `pytest`.
