[Gentoo] dev-python/zstandard[python_targets_python2_7] can't be built on multilingual system

dev-vcs/mercurial depends on dev-python/zstandard[python_targets_python2_7], but it can't be built

Encodes are the matter. Python 2.7 is not good at that.

By the way, Mercurial hg is still used? I don't use it mainly.

Of course I use Git you know. Maybe I am git also 😁

But some projects still use hg. Some use Bazaar...

[Gentoo] dev-python/cryptography can't be built without dev-python/pycparser

x11-misc/mozo: Change mate-base/mate-menus[python] dependency to [python(+)]

[wjn-overlay] Giving up GNOME support

I gived up supporting Cinnamon and Budgie

They depend on GNOME, but GNOME depends on Systemd too much

Systemd is not clean nor simple. It's invading other territory such as logging, resolv.conf, etc.

So I'm using OpenRC Gentoo system, I can't install GNOME anymore. I can't maintain Cinnamon and Budgie anymore

dev-libs/mini-xml to dev-libs/mxml

I forgetted media-sound/yoshimi depends on dev-libs/mini-xml

Now followed the package name change to dev-libs/mxml
