The current package homepage http://webdavcgi.sourceforge.net/ does forward to https://danrohde.github.io/webdavcgi/
On the github page there is a 1.1.2 release
Please bump and update the www-apps/webdavcgi ebuild
I'm sorry, but I'm currently too busy to bump and test a new WebDAV CGI release. You're more than welcome to step in if you like.
According to the upgrade notes  a new IO::Compress::Brotli  ebuild would be required as well.
Current stable does not work with stable perl 5.26 because of unescaped left brace
Issue seems to be fixed in upstream in https://github.com/DanRohde/webdavcgi/commit/04e79b7ecbaf3aae5ab813cd4fc0a009c72b1580
thanks a lot for the report and the proposed regex patch. I've finally found some time to rework on the ebuild and update it to the latest upstream version.
The PR is available on GitHub:
Any chance to get the PR in portage? I use the www-apps/webdavcgi-1.1.2 compiled using this ebuild since ~1 year without issues
