1 Hello,
3 I'll be removing myself from (proxy-)maintainer of www-plugins/passff
4 and www-plugins/passff-host as firefox as been more and more of a pain
5 to deal with.
7 For example today I ended up discovering that firefox-68.3.0 bundles
8 Python 2.7.9 at ${S}/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/_virtualenvs/init/bin/python2.7
9 which triggered my blob remover that I use to make sure it is actually
10 built from sources. (not sure if I should file a gentoo bug on this one btw)
12 They have few bugs, one being solvable by a version bump which should
13 fix it. Feel free to ping me on IRC (nick: lanodan) or email for
14 questions about the packaging.
15 Should also be noted that www-plugins/passff could simply go away as
16 Mozilla plans to remove sideloaded extensions for Firefox 73.0[1].
