Description Peter Robinson 2020-04-29 11:18:11 UTC
lvm2 is currently built against compat-readline5 (5.2) where the latest version of readline is 8, it would be useful to move to the latest readline so it builds against a supported version.

Comment 1 Alasdair Kergon 2020-04-29 12:37:48 UTC
Is readline 8 available under a compatible licence?

Comment 2 Alasdair Kergon 2020-04-29 12:44:20 UTC
See bug 511847 for background
