Not exactly sure what you mean, the package already uses that URL for
the homepage. The www.softhsm.org domain is just a CNAME for

That is true, and apparently there are no immediate plans for a new
release¹. On the other hand, most major distros have it packaged, and
looking at the issues/PRs the project still appears somewhat active.

I think the only use of this package in Guix proper is allowing some
tests for sssd to run. I use sssd, but would be OK with dropping softhsm
and skipping some of those tests.

I took the patch off a mailing list. It turns out that the final version
used by the Debian package is slightly different. I updated my patch to
use that version and added a link to the source:
