Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2018-10-07 09:39:09 UTC
An RCE in Git when checking out submodules has been found:

Upstream fixes in 2.14.5, 2.15.3, 2.16.5, 2.17.2, 2.18.1, and 2.19.1.
This is already bumped.

Our current stable in most archs is 2.18.0, so I believe 2.18.1 or 2.19.1 should be stabilized.
