1 Dear everyone,
3 I wonder if we should create a virtual package to allow our users - or
4 at least those who run systemd anyway - to choose between sys-apps/dbus
5 and sys-apps/dbus-broken as D-Bus implementation for their systems. The
6 usual "Gentoo is about choice" thing aside, there is now at least one,
7 security-related, problem with the former which can be worked around by
8 switching to the latter:
10 WDYT?
12 PS. Cc'ing maintainers of both packages to see what they might have got
13 to say about this.
