Hi list,

a quick mail to announce that the gnome team, in order to prepare for
gnome 3, started slotting a lot of gnome team managed packages. If you
find yourself using such a package, please update your ebuilds to use
slot notations or other EAPI compliant notation resulting in the same

Packages with only a slot 0 need not to be slot depended on.
We will slot move anything that needs to be (webkit-gtk slot is wrong
for now) and open tracker bugs once the first pass will be done.

Beware that some old slots have requests for removal that we are
currently working on, so if your package depends on one such old slot,
feel free to jump in the relevant bug reports.

Package slots on their way out:
* gnome-extra/libgnomedb < 4 (currently means all slots)
* gnome-extra/libgda:1 (for now, 3 might follow soonish, we have :4)
* dev-cpp/libgdamm:0 (we have :4)
* x11-libs/gtksourceviewmm:1.0 (we have :2)

See attached list for packages already slotted.

We aim at including gtk:3 in the coming days, so please forgive us if we
get to your package before you read this mail.
