Package Metadata


  • Both packages are unmaintained, EAPI 0, not keyworded on amd64. Both were last bumped in 2010. Tinycobol had one release afterwards, after which it has been declared dead (in 2011). It is the only reverse dependency of vbisam, and it has no reverse dependencies itself. Removal in 30 days. Bug #693752.
