OK. Let me ( https://build.opensuse.org/user/show/DarkSS ) became the
maintainer.

Make sure to take care of issues like
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1422550
as well... upstream had tagged a version 3.7beta2 almost 10 years ago;
so don't expect much upstream activity on reported security issues and
be prepared to fix them (this is just the first one I found googline
for 30 seconds)

Our package has not been touched since 2013 - which is already a bad
sign in itself (it builds is not qualification)

Cheers
Dominique

I can do monkey patching from Debian and/or Fedora. I can't maintain such bugs on my own.
