Upgraded

  • patches/packages/git-2.14.5-i486-1_slack14.1.txz
    This update fixes a security issue:
    Submodules' “URL“s come from the untrusted .gitmodules file, but we
    blindly gave it to “git clone” to clone submodules when “git clone
    –recurse-submodules” was used to clone a project that has such a
    submodule. The code has been hardened to reject such malformed URLs
    (e.g. one that begins with a dash). Credit for finding and fixing this
    vulnerability goes to joernchen and Jeff King, respectively.
    For more information, see:

    (* Security fix *)
