Description Graham 2023-03-06 12:57:48 UTC
Both ibus-libpinyin and fctix-libpinyin rely on this library. 
The latest code for both of these projects is incompatible with the current (old) version of libpinyin, so this package really needs a version bump. 
2.8.3 is the current latest.

Reproducible: Always
