Subject: [gentoo-dev] GNOME 1.x and GNOME 1.x dependent package masking
Date: Thu, 09 Nov 2006 03:28:01
1 Description:
2 GNOME 1.x is no longer supported by upstream GNOME developers.
3 Maintaining GNOME 1.x adds unnecessary complexity to the Gentoo GNOME
4 developers' workload. Some of the contributing factors are security
5 vulnerabilities, as-needed fixes, and general breakages over time due to
6 lower level package changes.
8 Resolution:
9 The GNOME herd has decided to remove GNOME 1.x and its dependent packages
10 from the tree. GTK+-1 and glib-1 will not be removed at this time however.
11 Effective a week from this message (15/11/2006), the attached package list
12 will be masked for 30 days and then the packages will be removed from the
13 tree on (15/12/2006).
15 How to dispute the resolution:
16 1) You can comment on bug #154102, OR
17 2) Contact the GNOME herd on freenode in #gentoo-desktop, OR
18 3) Email the herd lead, allanonjl@g.o
20 Please do NOT reply to this message with a reason why package X should not be
21 masked. If you feel strongly about a package, please port it to GTK+-2 and
22 submit patches on a new bug.
24 We apologize for any inconvenience.
26 Sincerely,
27 The Gentoo GNOME Herd
