As I in my other e-mail, I'm planing to update librsync 2.3.0 (2.3.1
doesn't compile on Slackware 14.2 due to a too old cmake version), which
should be compatible with librsync 0.9.7 but there's a .so version bump.
librsync is a required dependency of:
I maintain rdiff-backup and have tested upgrading librsync an
reinstalling rdiff-backup, everything seems to work fine.
I e-mailed the maintainers of duplicity and burp on 2021-03-17 to let
them know, no answer so far.
I also installed duplicity and successfully ran some basic tests
(syncying two local directories).
For burp I just recompiled it against librsync 2.3.0 and made sure it
started, but I don't know haow to test its funcionallity.
If someone who uses duplicity and/or cloud make (or suggest me) some
more tests to make it's be really appreciated.
Since this change is somewhat invasive, I'd like to ask opinions before
submitting to SBo:
Should I submit them now or should I wait for Slackware 15.0 instead?
If I send my changes now there's really no need for people to update
right away, but I don't want to catch anyone with their guard down :)
In the meantime, if anybody wants to test duplicity or burp against
librsync 2.3.0, the new slackbuilds are in my github repo:
