Openbox security patches

Hello,

I was wondering how openbox deals with new security vulnerabilities?
From what I can tell, there hasn't been any active development for years....

Regards

Re: Openbox security patches

Debian will apply necessary security patches to all the packages in the Stable repository, regardless of upstream activity.

Re: Openbox security patches

super, nice to know thx!

so as long as the Debian team does not end the support for Openbox, we do not need to worry?

Re: Openbox security patches

As far as security goes, yes.
Bugs are different, though Openbox does not seem to have too many.

Re: Openbox security patches

Openbox is a window manager. I don't see what sort of vulnerabilities it might present.
I consider it feature-complete - no development required.

I think you mean the operating system itself.
