Description Daniel Veillard 2004-09-01 07:06:43 EDT
Please add a descriptive phrase to the summary, and more in-depth
description here (be sure to note any arch-specific issues):

fam is deprecated
gamin is a new package replacing fam, it should provide API and ABI
compatibility with applications using FAM, work with SELinux and
avoid some of the issues found in the fam original package
Comment 1 Barry K. Nathan 2004-09-01 07:20:45 EDT
IIRC one of the advantages of gamin over FAM is that gamin, unlike
fam, doesn't require portmap. Assuming I'm not mistaken, that would be
worthy of mention in the release notes IMO.
Comment 2 Ed Bailey 2004-09-02 15:06:47 EDT
Daniel -- added to the deprecated package list.  Thanks for submitting
