Now, I'm still learning to read these.
gnome-base/gail is blocking x11-libs/gtk,
dev-python/pygtk is blocking dev-python/pygobject
Now, dev-python/pygtk is marked as (automatically resolved conflict) while
gnome-base/gail-1000 is marked as (unresolved conflict).
The text of the conflict all points to x11-libs/gtk+ versions, so can I just
roll these up into one version of x11-libs/gtk+?
This looks like a bit of a tangle, and I'm still trying to figure out how to
read the knot so I can untie it.
It seems like you are reading the message correctly, but you are
focusing on the wrong part. The problem here is gail, not gtk+. What
should happen is gail-1000 is installed as part of this upgrade, and
then the block is resolved. The output of "equery list -p gail" should
tell you if gail-1000 is masked for some reason. Unmasking gail-1000
should resolve the block, but why it is masked in the first place is
rather a mystery.
