Subject: [gentoo-dev-announce] GnuTLS 3.1 unmasking plans
Date: Wed, 22 Aug 2012 03:06:27
Message-Id: 50341B7D.4030402@gentoo.org
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

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=gnutls-3

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.

Thanks,
