Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-01 14:00:42 UTC
Upstream site:
This is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED release. You SHOULD upgrade to it ASAP as it contains security fixes.
If you use a version prior to 1.1.18 and you do NOT use m_namesx, you should update to 1.1.18 on the fly, then load m_namesx to avoid using code vulnerable to a crash.

If you use either uhnames or namesx, you should reload both of those modules after upgrading.
Comment 1 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-01 14:04:56 UTC
I wrote an email to Craig Edwards to see whether he has a new proxy maintainer or no interest anymore.
Comment 2 Craig Edwards 2008-04-01 18:19:53 UTC
I don't know who to ask about proxy maintaining of this - to be honest, maintaining packages is not my area of expertise.

I can get a 1.1.18 ebuild done for this and will submit it as a patch to this bug for whoever has access to apply.

1.1.18 ebuild by satmd

should work fine for 1.1.18 release, fixes crashbug in NAMES when certain configurations are enabled.
Comment 4 Craig Edwards 2008-04-06 23:04:48 UTC
anything happening with this?
Comment 5 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-07 00:36:14 UTC
Sorry Craig, the fact that this does not have a dedicated maintainer is keeping things at a slow pace. I'll look into committing this tomorrow, hopefully.
Comment 6 Craig Edwards 2008-04-07 21:10:18 UTC
Thanks Robert :-)
Much appreciated
Comment 7 satmd 2008-04-15 14:05:51 UTC
The ebuilds are from my local repo at - where I have submitted an updated ebuild just yesterday (adding ldap to IUSE).

Comment 9 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-23 18:51:35 UTC
I'll be bumping this to 1.1.19 after discussion in bug 218880 is done.
Comment 10 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-23 19:06:11 UTC
1.1.19 is in the tree. Craig, satmd, it would be great if I could get some feedback from you guys whether the ebuild is working ok. Then I'll add arches for a fast stabling.
Comment 11 Craig Edwards 2008-04-23 20:49:42 UTC
works fine for me :-)
Comment 12 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-23 21:04:17 UTC
Craig, thanks for testing.

Arches, please test and mark stable:

time for GLSA vote here. DoS on an IRC server... *sigh*. I vote yes.
