But this is also a nightmare.
I don't know what you mean here.
1. The main issue is the tool is not a real independent tool, it is only
maintained within sqlite and everyone using it outside of that are
"welcome to" by sqlite but the global library that's available is quite
out of scope of the sqlite maintainers.
The situation for lemon isn't that bad.
It's not an dedicated special thing within SQlite, it's included in the
main source. So up-streaming any issues could be more worse I guess.
Security isn't the main problem here. This would be more an out of date
2. Which now leads to the scenario like Arch Linux has. There is no
official repo with lemon. Only a 5-years out of date user repo that is
not exactly helping with that security goal ;)
That's a problem of Arch distro then I'd say. Arch is for sure having
SQlite as package, how about convincing the package maintainer to also
ship the lemon part? Technically this can't be that difficult.
