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.
Comment 5 Rainer Größlinger (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-09 10:56:46 UTC
cvs-1.11.17 committed.
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.
Comment 6 Guy Martin (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-09 11:28:30 UTC
Stable on hppa.
Comment 7 Ciaran McCreesh 2004-06-09 12:19:09 UTC
mips, sparc stable

CAN-2004-0416 - error_prog_name "double-free()"
CAN-2004-0417 - Argument integer overflow
CAN-2004-0418 - serve_notify() out of bounds writes
Comment 9 Jay Maynard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-09 12:34:25 UTC

Comment 10 Danny van Dyk (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-09 12:53:52 UTC
stable on amd64.
Comment 11 Luca Barbato gentoo-dev 2004-06-09 14:12:21 UTC
Marked ppc
Comment 12 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-09 17:22:56 UTC
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
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
Comment 13 Rainer Größlinger (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-09 17:36:28 UTC

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.
Comment 14 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-10 02:28:30 UTC
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.
Comment 15 Danny van Dyk (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-10 03:14:43 UTC
Confirming... i'm just still wondering why and how i forgot to commit ?!?
[I double checked, it's really in now ;-) ]
