See. This is not the point of liking or not liking a given recipe. I don't
like the fact that this recipe is not maintained for years and has the
possibility of damaging the reputation of distros built with OE. I assume
even users of SlugOS do not like if their device gets owned via known and
It would be nice if we could establish a shared responsibility for maintaining
software that listens on network ports and is handling multimedia content (the
two kind of things most likely to be suffering flaws). I don't think it is that
difficult. If there is a remote hole and exploits are floating around, upgrade
anyway, you don't have the time..
