Comment 4 Thomas Andrews 2023-02-09 18:37:14 CET
Tested in a VirtualBox mga8-64 Plasma guest. No installation issues.

No previous updates, but urpmq --whatreqires-recursive indicates that it is used by plasma-workspace, kwrite, konqueror, kate, and others.

I ran kwrite with strace -o output.txt kwrite and loaded a short text file into it. I edited the file, saved the edited version, and printed it to a pdf file. Examining output.txt afterward showed a call to  "/lib64/libeditorconfig.so.0"

Kwrite functioned normally, and there were no observed problems with plasma-workspace, so I'm going to call this one OK.
