Re: lbglib-json in Jessie

Hi Riccardo,

gretl developer here. We found that libglib-json 1.0.2 (which is the
version still present in Jessie) is affected by a relatively nasty bug
I personally was able to get around the problem quite easily by installing
on the affected machine the Stretch version (1.2.6), which required just
another upgrade (gir1.2-json to 2.0.1).

I'm being slightly misled by your reference to gir1.2-json there as
this is part of glib-json source package - did you typo with the "lib"
prefix to "libjson-json"?

Ah, you're right. I just needed that for the "-dev" package, which I need for building gretl.

To clarify/summarise, are you suggesting that we upgrade src:glib-json
from 1.0.2 → 1.0.4?

Yes (and the dev-package too, of course)

Why don't we just cherry-pick the aforementioned patch and apply it to 1.0.2? :)

You mean, in my local system? I thought LTS for Jessie ended in 2020, and IMO it'd be nice to fix a package in the official repo.
