Subject: [gentoo-dev] Last rites for media-libs/tunepimp
Date: Tue, 25 Jul 2006 07:43:53
Message-Id: 200607250939.17875@enterprise.flameeyes.is-a-geek.org
I'm sending the last rites before the p.mask this time because I'm currently 
occupied in the whole KDE commit so I'd rather not to mix stuff up.

Later today media-libs/tunepimp is going to be masked, the musicbrainz useflag 
dropped, and removed in 30 days.

The reason is a security issue (bug #140184) together with the fact that 0.3 
and 0.4 are now obsoleted by 0.5, but we cannot add 0.5 yet as only picard 
(that is not in portage) supports it at this time.

Please note that, whenever a 0.5.x version, non-vulnerable, would be 
needed/usable by software in portage, even during the 30 days masking period, 
it could reappear normally. *But* I would really like to wait till upstream 
decides on a format and an API because it was really too much in flux in the 
last months.
