1 # Ionen Wolkens <ionen@g.o> (2023-01-24)
2 # Mostly obsoleted by the better maintained net-misc/yt-dlp, please
3 # migrate. If had USE=yt-dlp enabled (default) then was likely already
4 # using through its youtube-dl compatibility wrapper and this will
5 # change nothing beside needing to ensure that it is not depcleaned.
6 #
7 # Upstream is mostly focusing on compatibility and old python support,
8 # still uses deprecated Nose for tests, and has not seen a new release
9 # to deploy fixes in a long time despite major issues (e.g. throttling).
10 #
11 # Been kept due to some packages lacking compatibility with yt-dlp's
12 # python modules, but none are left in tree. Those that call the command
13 # rather than modules will often work as-is with yt-dlp's wrapper.
14 # Removal: 2023-02-23. Bug #891917
