Description Esteve Varela Colominas 2022-07-01 08:30:03 UTC
Some linux distributions are starting to use as a new upstream, as the previous one seems to be dead.
I think it'd be a good idea to follow along.
Comment 1 Esteve Varela Colominas 2022-07-01 08:35:05 UTC
By "some distributions" apparently I meant only Arch, so nevermind.

Apparently the full package of 7-zip now supports linux as well, but apparently it's incompatible enough to warrant a new package sadly.
Comment 2 tomas charvat 2022-07-11 19:26:40 UTC
There is no need for fork of 7-zip since they release linux version.
It would be best to remove obsolete p7zip and introduce official 7-zip.
Comment 3 tomas charvat 2022-07-11 19:28:26 UTC
Current version of p7zip in the portage is 16.02
It is likely subject of multiple CVE
Comment 4 Esteve Varela Colominas 2023-01-23 14:25:16 UTC
Proper upstream:

It's worth noting that most of the CVEs were fixed in gentoo's version of 16.02, and as such this bug isn't a security bug, but rather a request to unify cross-distro efforts into a single project.
