using keepassx probably for 10 years or so across linux,win,mac,ios

in late 2015 there was a security issue found and folks @ keepassx.org
patched it fairly  quickly and patch propagated
up to epel quickly as well ...

passwd manager {non-cloud ones} , in my opinion,
is a "static"  concept ...
unless no issues with the underlying frameworks,
what's there to patch ...



What is/are a good cloud-less password manager if I'd need it in a
cross-platform scenario;  Windows, CentOS, Ubuntu and Android?

A cloud enabled manager would be okay I guess if I could move the password
database to say my own private cloud and be able to access it from there
from all platforms.

KeepassX seemed like a good choice until I found out it didn't do Android.

Suggestions greatly appreciated!
