Description Conrad Kostecki gentoo-dev 2024-04-23 21:57:25 UTC
Dear maintainer,
please check, if support for dev-libs/mxml:4 is possible.

The package dev-libs/mxml:4 has been recently added to the tree and is a new major version. The ABI of dev-libs/mxml:4 is not compatible with older dev-libs/mxml-3*

Thank you!

Hi Conrad, upstream's last commit on lurch master is two years old with no signs of being prioritized again.  All the time I put into upstream seems wasted now but was not expected to be a waste back then.  Maybe the best move is to treeclean lurch and its lurch-only dependencies.  If we want to keep it, it probably needs a new downstream maintainer, since it's known bitrot by know.  What do you think?
