Subject: [gentoo-dev] Last rites for media-video/xmovie

1 This package is unmaintaiend in Gentoo, unported to modular X, available only
2 on x86, and masked for the security bug #115760 since last January.
4 Unless anyone has a reason to leave it there, I'd punt it next month (if I
5 remember of it of course).
7 Alternatives: mplayer, xine, vlc, whatever-you-want-but-this. The most
8 interesting use for this would be playing Cinelerra output, but even then,
9 it's not worth the security issue (upstream still hasn't updated yet).
11 Cya xmovie!
