Description David Walser 2023-04-13 17:02:08 CEST
A note about an unfixed old security issue in pcre was sent out on April 11:

As noted there, we should link any remaining packages that are still linked to old pcre to pcre2 instead.  If anything still hasn't been ported, it should probably be dropped.
