Hi,

I got this oupt while updateing:

!!! The following installed packages are masked:
- x11-misc/tintwizard-0.3.4-r3::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# Andreas Sturmlechner <asturm@g.o> (2020-02-26)
# Unmaintained revdeps on dev-python/pygtk blocking its removal, py2-only
# All masked for removal in 30 days.
# Last release in 2011, bug #708106
# No plans upstream to port away from pygtk, suggested alternative dupeguru
# not packaged in Gentoo, bug #708112
# Last release in 2012, bug #708124
# Last release in 2012, bug #708142
# Last release in 2011, bug #708150

I interpret this as:

tintwizard will be removed because of being Unmaintained and python-2
base.

As an alternative, "dupeguru" is suggestet.

The description of tintwizard is:
"GUI wizard which generates config files for tint2 panels"

dupeguru isn't in the repository so I searched for it and found:
"dupeGuru is a cross-platform (Linux, OS X, Windows) GUI tool to find
duplicate files in a system."

Both application seem to have silightly different use cases.

Or what dupeguru is meant here?

Cheers!
mcc
