Subject: [gentoo-dev-announce] GnuTLS 3.1 unmasking plans
Date: Wed, 22 Aug 2012 03:06:27
Hello everybody,

since seems like the plans are to unmask GLIBC 2.16 soon, and I don't
really want to further patch GnuTLS 2, and this is already going to
involve quite a bit of work, it means that the moment GLIBC is unmasked,
GnuTLS 3.1 is unmasked as well.

The tracker for this is at

And as you can see most of the problems are with packages that have
optional support for GnuTLS, so I don't expect so many people screaming,
but please try to handle these bugs sooner, rather than later.
