Hi all,

Does anyone know if there's any plan to unmask the ayatana USE flag? Currently it is masked system-wide:
Code:
/usr/portage/profiles» grep -ir ayatana *
arch/arm/use.mask:ayatana
arch/mips/use.mask:ayatana
arch/powerpc/use.mask:ayatana
base/use.stable.mask:ayatana
use.desc:ayatana - Build in support for Ayatana notification using the libindicate or libappindicator plugin
The comments there suggest that it was masked because the dependencies were not stable.
Code:
/usr/portage/profiles» tail -n 3 base/use.stable.mask
# Patrick Lauer <patrick@gentoo.org> (28 Apr 2015)
# dependencies not stable yet
ayatana
This does not seem to be the case right now, and the dependencies are all stable. I didn't find anything in the b.g.o that indicates that there's any plan to unmask ayatana USE flag yet
Code:
/usr/portage/profiles» emerge -pv libappindicator

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N     ] dev-libs/libdbusmenu-16.04.0::gentoo  USE="gtk gtk3 -debug -introspection -test" ABI_X86="(64) -32 (-x32)" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7" 743 KiB
[ebuild  N     ] dev-libs/libindicator-12.10.1-r301:3::gentoo  USE="-test" ABI_X86="(64) -32 (-x32)" 418 KiB
[ebuild  N     ] dev-libs/libappindicator-12.10.0-r301:3::gentoo  USE="-introspection" ABI_X86="(64) -32 (-x32)" 524 KiB

I have unmasked the USE flag by the following:
Code:
~ » cat /etc/portage/profile/use.mask
# Unmask ayatana use flag since it's dependencies are all stable now
-ayatana
