What's up with libsndfile in Fedora and EPEL?
There are open tickets about CVEs filed in March.
There are additional tickets without any reply.


Yeah, things go a little slow with libsndfile. Because of the old
version we have in<  Fedora 12 we also are not able to update some of
our audio packages.
I requested for comaintainership to fix the bugs filed to Fedora.

We can't reach the maintainer. We tried it in various ways at various
times, e.g. [1].

I even offered help but got nothing... Shall I fix the bugs and update
the package with my "proven" powers? I don't like to do substantial
changes on other people's packages. But this one has a security bug
that is open for 8 months... Also a few users asked me to update
ardour but I can't do it without updating libsndfile.

What shall we do?


I would say just go ahead and fix it, and maybe start an awol maintainer
procedure so that you can eventually take over the package.

Regards,

Hans
