Why is Sav PDF Viewer Pro not shown anymore?

Sav PDF Viewer Pro was available under this link apparently:
This returns 404.

Also I cannot manually find it: F-Droid Search: sav pdf

In metadata/com.saverio.pdfviewer.yml · master · F-Droid / Data · GitLab I see:

KnownVuln as it uses a very old version of pdfium with many vulnerabilities,
see New App: Sav PDF Viewer Pro (!9913) · Merge requests · F-Droid / Data · GitLab

Don’t know whether it is because of this, but usually antifeatures are “just” displayed and do not prevent listing hmm?

Also the Gitlab data shows it was just updated to the latest version around a month ago.

So what’s up here?

Backlink to GitHub issue in repo about this issue

Apps using that PDF library were disabled as it wasn’t compiled from source (and is horrifically insecure).
