Possible to add GUFW 21.04 to Ubuntu 20.04 to fix Github #9?

Asked by Hamish McIntyre-Bhatty on 2021-01-15

A little time ago, I encountered the issue at https://github.com/costales/gufw/issues/9 that was subsequently fixed.

As this firewall ships with Ubuntu, and this is a fairly serious bug, would it potentially be possible to get this updated in the repos? An update to 21.04 would fix the issue I believe. I think this fix is definitely worth having in the repositories as misreporting the state of the firewall and the rules available (as it did for me) is quite serious.

Hi,
No, because of how repos work. Only it could be possible as backport release, but it's complicate to enter into the repo.
If someone MOTU can do it, it would be great!
Best regards.
