Package: python-wxgtk-webview3.0
Severity: serious
Tags: sid buster
User: pkg-webkit-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: oldlibs libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 webkit1

python-wxgtk-webview3.0 depends on libwxgtk-webview3.0-0v5 which
depends on libwxgtk-webview3.0-0v5 which depends on
libwebkitgtk-1.0-0. libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 is the old webkitgtk library
that suffers from many reported CVEs that have been fixed in
libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 (src: webkit2gtk ). We do not intend to release
Debian 10 "Buster" with libwebkitgtk-1.0-0.

python-wxgtk-webview3.0 has no reverse dependencies in Debian or
Ubuntu so it seems easy to just stop building this package for now.

See also https://bugs.debian.org/790222 for the RC bug for wxwidgets3.0.

On behalf of the Debian WebKit maintainers,
