The problem is that a coordinated release was planned for today 13:00 GMT
but obvioulsy Derek Robert Price forgot to put them up. Meanwhile I have
heard that within the next 60 minutes the new versions are out.
I will immediatly test and put it into the tree then.
Stable on x86, ~ on all other architectures.
Please test and mark stable asap, I'd like to remove <=1.11.16 from the tree then.
Stable on hppa.
mips, sparc stable
CAN numbers :
CAN-2004-0414 - no-null-termination of "Entry" lines
CAN-2004-0416 - error_prog_name "double-free()"
CAN-2004-0417 - Argument integer overflow
CAN-2004-0418 - serve_notify() out of bounds writes
Stable on Alpha.
stable on amd64.
Note that if you have the doc useflag set, the ebuild will currently fail to download all of the files as the .ps version of the cederqvist doc redirects you to a secure website. Even though wget was built with ssl support, it gives the following error;
>>> Downloading http://ccvs.cvshome.org/files/documents/19/196/cederqvist-1.11.17.ps
https: Unknown host
Granted this isn't a show stopper but I thought people should be aware. I'm not on the CC so if you want to reply to me either add me or do it offline. Cheers
The above works for me.
I also dislike cvs' new site which changed directory paths so each file has its own number and the redirect to https/443 but I'm afraid currently we can't do much about it.
The ebuild in CVS is still ~amd64. I suppose the stable keyword was lost somewhere.
amd64 please confirm...
Once amd64 is confirmed the GLSA is ready to go.
Confirming... i'm just still wondering why and how i forgot to commit ?!?
[I double checked, it's really in now ;-) ]
Still not stable on arm, ia64, ppc64 and s390.
Will hunt down some individuals now ;-)
stable on arm and ia64
cvs-1.11.17 stable on all architectures now
