I read here https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=331479 that adesklets has been removed from portage.

I can understand that it had bugs, needed to be removed from tree, its old, its not maintained, but unfortunately for me, I was still using it in evilwm.

I went to update world, now its complaining there are no ebuilds.

What are my options here, adesklets worked ok for me with yab.

can I just remove it from the world file and just go on and leave it out there, is there a good minimal alternative task bar I can use with evilwm? I have never messed with overlays, but thats an option I suppose, and a lot of work on my part.

copy the ebuild (which will still exist in the /var/db/pkg... structure) to a local overlay and maintain yourself
