ksh version 2020 vs 93u

Asked by Minx Ab on 2021-05-28

The ksh 2020 branch is abandoned and have some bad bugs.

Find it unfortunate that Ubuntu 20 LTS has this as default package.

https://packages.ubuntu.com/focal/ksh

It breaks systems and manifest both reported and unreported bugs.

Is it possible to change this to the 93u like other versions?

https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=ksh

If of interest:

https://github.com/ksh93/ksh

is an active fork used to develop bugfixes to the last stable release (93u+ 2012-08-01).

There is already a bug report Bug #1918017
I suggest that you mark it as "affects me" and continue there.
