Subject: [gentoo-dev] Masking of SETI@home 3.x and related packages

Hi,

It has been a while since the SETI@home project has moved to a BOINC-based 
client. Thanks to Marcus Hanwell (cryos), we have working ebuilds for BOINC 
and the new SETI@home client (4.x) in the tree.

The "classic" SETI@home 3.x service has now been discontinued (and the 
software is no longer distributed). This is why I will start masking the 
relevant packages. These will be removed from the tree in about a month. They 
are:

=sci-astronomy/setiathome-3*
sci-astronomy/ksetispy
sci-astronomy/ksetiwatch
sci-astronomy/lin-seti
sci-astronomy/msetimon
sci-astronomy/setimgr
sci-astronomy/tkseti
x11-plugins/gkrellm-seti
x11-plugins/wmseti
x11-plugins/wmsetimon
x11-plugins/wmufo

The "seti" local USE flag used in "app-admin/torsmo" and "app-admin/conky" 
will be masked in the base profile.

Tracker bug for the new BOINC-based SETI@home is #103250 
(http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103250).

Regards,
