Description Stef Walter 2013-03-21 06:47:53 EDT
The p11-kit trust module should reload its input paths when they change. This allows some running applications to detect changes.

Further testing is needed as to which applications support what and how this interacts with caches.

This might be done by looking for changes when a new PKCS#11 session (ie: C_OpenSession) is created by NSS or other crypto libraries using the trust module.
Comment 1 Stef Walter 2013-03-21 06:50:49 EDT
This is not intended to be a Fedora 19 feature, as indicated by selecting 'rawhide' above. In Fedora 19, we don't yet reload while running. 

This behavior is identical to the current libnssckbi.so behavior, of not reloading its data (ie: itself) if the file had been changed, until the process was restarted. So this is not a regression. NSS per user stored trust policy in libsoftokn continues to be put into use without restarting the process.
Comment 2 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2013-05-13 15:29:12 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 3 Stef Walter 2013-07-17 06:01:59 EDT
Upstream work in 0.19.x done to implement this.
Comment 4 Stef Walter 2013-07-18 10:14:02 EDT
Released as part of development release 0.19.2.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2013-09-16 09:16:14 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.
