Description Philippe Chaintreuil 2016-04-21 16:06:04 UTC
Minor bug fix version: "delivering important bug fixes and helps protecting Roundcube against more XSS and CSRF attacks. Version 1.1.5 also has two new plugin hooks integrated [...]."


Roundcube version bumps have historically only required a ebuild copy+rename.  Nothing indicates that this version would require anything more.
Comment 1 Kristian Fiskerstrand (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-04-23 15:40:37 UTC
Multiple vulnerabilities for roundcube have been fixed in 1.1.5:
Fix XSS issue in SVG images handling (#4949)
Protect download urls against CSRF using unique request tokens (#4957): also mentions
Fix (again) security issue in DBMail driver of password plugin (CVE-2015-2181) (#4958)

1.1.5 ebuild -- fixes download url

Attached an updated ebuild that just changes the SRC_URI from mirror://sourceforge/ to the new location.  (I tried to use mirror://github/, but that stuck a "/download/" at the base of the URL that messed it up.  If someone knows how to fix that, feel free.

This ebuild worked for me (1.1.4 -> 1.1.5).

1.1.4 -> 1.2.0.patch

Made a 1.1.4 -> 1.2.0.ebuild.patch

Basically rename + changed EAPI to 6
No testing of USE-flags (builds for me with ssl and mysql)
Comment 6 Philippe Chaintreuil 2016-05-25 15:08:22 UTC
Added a github pull request for 1.1.5 in hopes it makes life easier and moves this along:
Comment 7 Philippe Chaintreuil 2016-05-25 15:23:43 UTC
I opened a separate bug #584098 to track 1.2.0 since this 1.1.5 has specific security patches, whereas 1.2.0 has new features.

Thank you for working on this, Kim Sindalsen and Philippe Chaintreuil. I also have to beg your forgiveness as I forgot to thank you in the commit. I stared at it for several minutes thinking I was forgetting something, and not being able to remember, pushed it.
