Hi,

PCRE library has been superseded with PCRE2 project by PCRE
upstream in 2015. PCRE upstream considers PCRE obsolete now
and does not devote any resources to PCRE except of critical
bugs. Please consider adding PCRE2 support.

Downstream Fedora bug:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1755491

thanks & regards

Jaroslav
