Code:
equery depends libxklavier
 * These packages depend on libxklavier:
mate-base/libmatekbd-1.24.0 (>=x11-libs/libxklavier-5.2:0[introspection?])
mate-base/mate-control-center-1.24.0 (>=x11-libs/libxklavier-4)
mate-base/mate-settings-daemon-1.24.0 (>=x11-libs/libxklavier-5.2)
mate-extra/mate-screensaver-1.24.0 (x11-libs/libxklavier)


So libxklavier seems to have been masked some time ago, yet it seems as if those MATE packages still depend on it, and it's still installed on my system (libxklavier), so I don't have any problems right now. But it seems like it might cause trouble if for some reason libxklavier got unmerged.
Does anyone know about this package? Has it been superseded by another and it's safe to remove it? Or would I just keep it around and in case it got lost unmask it in portage?

Thanks.

It doesn't seem masked to me. How'd you figure it's masked? Might be something in your system.

Clad in Sky,

Code:
$ eix libxklavier
[I] x11-libs/libxklavier
     Available versions:  5.4(0/16) {+introspection vala}
     Installed versions:  5.4(0/16)(15:35:37 19/06/18)(introspection -vala)
     Homepage:            https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/LibXklavier
     Description:         A library for the X Keyboard Extension (high-level API)

That's a few days old now but no mask there.

Thanks for the replies. I must have masked it at some point.
I usually never do, so it didn't cross my mind to check /etc/portage/package.mask
