What's the reason ffmpeg 2.* is hardmasked? When can I expect it to be put in the unstable branch (or even stable)? There's one feature I need from the later 2.* releases.

Hi,

such masks are defined and usually commented in /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask.

In this case:

Code:
# New major release and lots of packages fail to build.
# Tracker bug is: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=476490
>=media-video/ffmpeg-2.0


Best Regards,
Holger
