Package Todo Lists

Todo lists are used by the developers when a rebuild of a set of packages is needed. This is common when a library has a version bump, during a toolchain rebuild, or a general cleanup of packages in the repositories. The progress can be tracked here, and completed todo lists can be browsed as well.

Phasing out webkitgtk{,2} 2017-01-19 Jan Steffens WebkitGTK+ 2.4 has been unmaintained for quite a while, and lots of CVEs have accumulated. The last release fixing CVEs, 2.4.10, only fixed about half the vulnerabilities known, and that release was only made because 2.4.9 was broken with GTK+ 3.20, and Evolution quickly needed a working HTML renderer. For more information about the WebKit situation, take a look at To protect our users we should try to limit the packages using webkitgtk(2), with the goal of eventually getting rid of it completely. This TODO contains a list of packages which depend (directly or indirectly) on webkitgtk or webkitgtk2. If the package can be updated to webkit2gtk, do so. Otherwise, if WebKit is an optional dependency, build without it. Otherwise, consider removing the package, especially if it's a browser. Updated packages can go straight to extra/community. If nothing can be done right now, mark the package as completed anyway. We'll be evaluating the situation again after this TODO is through. 72 0 Complete
