Comment 4 Sam James archtester gentoo-dev Security 2021-05-16 13:51:06 UTC
FWIW, I’m aware of this but undecided as to what to do next given that clearly we need a new release upstream.

Will likely do a snapshot given there could be other incompatibilities.

    dev-libs/libxslt: fix tests with newer libxml2; patch CVE-2021-30560
    Note that we're now depending on >= .11 of libxml2 just to be safe,
    even though some of the patches seem to have compatibility guards,
    not all do - and upstream develop these in tandem anyway.
