That repo seems inactive. So does the git repo at but I would rely
on that one.

Let's try fresh now. Given there's been not much development in the upstream
repo, I've just taken your patch, as is, for submission.

Doing now.

Dear Squashfs Team,

Can you please review/include the attached patch into squashfs-tools ?
The mentioned changes are needed by AppImageKit.

What is AppImage

The AppImage format is a format for packaging applications in a way that allows
them to run on a variety of different target systems (base operating systems,
distributions) without further modification.

AppImageKit is a concrete implementation of the AppImage format and provides
tools such as appimagetool and appimaged for conveniently handling AppImages.
