[STICKY][icu] and friends (armv7h)
this is the current list of 'icu' dependents for armv7h systems - each time 'icu' is upgraded in archarm, each of these packages should be rebuilt against the upgraded 'icu', with sodeps for each 'icu*.so', then the 'icu-parabola' package should be upgraded to the same version as archarm
the list is of course subject to change - the attached files can be used to generate the current list

I can cross-compile for arm easily enough but have no means of testing gui arm programs
I'm open to suggestions on how to make packages I build available to people wanting to test
I could attach the packages to their respective subtasks and then push them once people with arm hardware have tested them

/me wonders if this one can be closed
probably yes because 'icu' is up to v65 now - but probably that means its time for another round of rebuilds just like this one
/me also wonders if "in progress" should be a valid state with no "assignee"
but i suppose it needs to be, for "epics" like this one

there are probably dozens of nearly identical tickets opened and closed over the years because of either icu, poppler, and ice* things; because the same situation recurs routinely - sometimes the ticket gets close and other times it doesnt, and goes stale before the next identical event comes around
If those two libraries are regularly causing the ice* browsers to break when they get updated, is it worth considering linking them statically instead? It might make sense, if they are strongly dependent on particular versions, because then the dynamic linking isn't really a benefit anyway, is it?
