Sorry for that. Back on topic, as FSLint is out, I've tried dupeguru and I find it nice, although it is a bit counter-intuitive regarding the created groups, or my Breeze Dark theme does not highlights the similar file groups that well. Anyway, it works fine.
I have downloaded the latest stable version of the sources and run 'make' and 'make run' and it simply worked, seemingly it does not miss any dependency. It's a good addition to the distro. I have liked FSLint better at presentation UI, but it also poorer in features by comparison to dupeguru.

How's the migration? Why not moving to pythoin 3.7, as Gentoo did? Is it still questionable concerning the stability, or is it the volume of work?

Hi again, I know you've been working hard on the next release, today I've got a huge bunch of updates.
There is another software very dear to me, I use it at least weekly: GIMP Resynthesizer. Man, ready to be dropped! I am really scared now!
Even more scared than after the first reboot when a piano song started to play in a loop! (but that was solved with another reboot). Wow! But Rigo insists in asking me to drop GIMP Resynthesizer! :P I need that until Photoshop runs natively on Linux! (yeah, probably forever).

I see you already found your way upstream, very good.

https://github.com/bootchk/resynthesizer/issues/67

I decided to secure the ebuild to our overlay and make this available again:

BTW, GIMP 2.10 seems to have its own Python 2, probably Python 3 will be part of GIMP 3. I've got GIMP Resynthesizer update this morning, thank you!
So, GIMP Resynthesizer would be working with GIMP 2.10 for a long time.

What about MyPaint? It's a very drawing interesting application and it has no support for Python 2 in the latest versions, why was this one dropped?

I have a suggestion from the packaging system since this operation started, to drop "Shadow". Why is that?

Sorry to say but we have to let this go for now, you can decide to not upgrade your system for a bit.

It's kind of too late now. I've already did.
I depend on it, since COVID-19 lockdown, I work from home and it's my base of operations.

I know, I have not uninstalled it, I'll keep it as long as I can.

You know, it is a long time since I want to tell you that: there should be a prize for people like you that make the world spinning. They are not so many.
