We're going to need some new packages rolled for RHSA-2005:027 to fix this new
issue.  Please respect the embargo when working with CVS.
Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-01-14 07:16:54 EST
The patch URL does not yet work.  We don't have a patch from upstream yet.  I'll
update the bugs as soon as I know.
Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2005-01-19 05:22:27 EST
Now public, see URL for patch, removing embargo
Comment 4 Dan Williams 2005-01-19 11:53:07 EST
Marco, you want to take this one?  If not I'll do it.
Comment 5 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-01-19 11:55:40 EST
Dan, I'm working on it. I built the package and I'm finishing to file the
errata. I'm a bit slow because it's my first errata... hopefully I'm doing
things right ;)
Comment 6 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-01-19 14:49:11 EST
I *think* everything is done here. Please let me know if there are problems,
it's my first errata, I tried to be careful but... it's not the simpler process
in the world ;)
Comment 7 Josh Bressers 2005-01-19 15:04:12 EST

The things look fine, thanks.  I'm moving the bug to modified.
