This is actually 2 patches. The first updates libcyaml and the 2nd
Zrythm. Note that I (Zrythm author) have added a trademark policy to
Zrythm that says modified versions that include the trademarks require
permission (as discussed on IRC with a few people):

I am not 100% sure if patching the xdg-open path counts as a modified
version, but in any case this email is signed using the same key used
to sign the release, so it can be interpreted as "written permission"
to redistribute this.

The FSDG allows trademarks from what I understand:
Trademarks are associated with some software. For example, the name of
a program may be trademarked, or its interface may display a
trademarked logo. Often, the use of these marks will be controlled in
some way; in particular, developers are commonly asked to remove
references to the trademark from the software when they modify it.

In extreme cases, these restrictions may effectively render the program
nonfree. It is unfair for someone to ask you to remove a trademark from
modified code if that trademark is scattered all throughout the
original source. As long as the practical requirements are reasonable,
however, free system distributions may include these programs, either
with or without the trademarks.

Similarly, the distribution itself may hold particular trademarks. It
is not a problem if modification requires removal of these trademarks,
as long as they can readily be removed without losing functionality.

However, it is unacceptable to use trademarks to restrict verbatim
copying and redistribution of the whole distribution, or any part.

And Zrythm now has a meson option for easily changing the program name,
if you  would prefer to rename it to something else (Z-Daw for
example). Changing the logo is also very trivial, and I plan to add
freely licensed replacements in future releases to make it even easier
to replace.

So it is up to the maintainers to decide if they want to keep Zrythm as
it is or rename it. Either way, I am happy with either decision,
although I would prefer if you were OK with keeping the "Zrythm" name
(as long as there's no patches to remove/add functionality or links to
the Zrythm website or things like that).

Applied with the following tweaks:

  • Renamed Meson variable to ‘meson-0.55’.

  • Replaced libcyaml upgrade with my own version since I got a
    different hash than the one your patch had.  If you still have a
    different version, please check whether there are differences.
