ROTFL - Inventor is an elderly, former "monster package" SGI had sold for $$$$ during the 1990's and had released LGPL'ed ca. in 2000. They had been responsive to patches/fixes in subsequent years, but since ca. 2003 their responsiveness has stalled.
And given they just re-emerged from bankrupt, I seriously doubt it will ever improve...
In other words, this is "dead-stable" code without an active upstream nor development. De facto, everything is in "keep-alive" maintenance by Linux distros keeping their packages going and them occasionally mutually harvesting/exchanging their patches and modifications. I.e. the de facto upstream are Debian and Fedora (i.e. me).
And I thank you both for that... I was actaully pretty impressed by the 219Kb (bzipped) applied "monster patch" :) -- fedora-extras-list mailing list fedora-extras-list@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-extras-list
