# Ben de Groot <yngwin@g.o> (25 Jun 2009)
# Mask the Qt4 meta ebuild, to prevent devs from being silly and depend on
# the meta ebuild instead of on the specific split Qt ebuilds needed. See
# bug 217161 comment 11. Users may unmask this if they want to pull in all
# Qt modules, but packages in portage (or overlays) will pull in the split
# modules they need as dependency. Unmasking this will most likely pull in
# more than you need.
# Davide Pesavento <pesa@g.o> (08 Dec 2011)
# Now superseded by x11-libs/qt-meta. Removal on 18 Dec 2011.

(only 10 days of grace period before removal because the package has
been masked for almost 2 years and a half)
