Source RPM signed digests:
This is the first of two successive revisions of rkhunter released
within 11 days of each other. The choice of whether to dedicate any
resources to v1.2.0 will have to be made AFTER packaging and testing
v1.2.1 (I am starting that work this evening). I suspect that v1.2.1
will make a favorable impression and will then take priority over the
release of v1.2.0 and as such I am deferring work on v1.2.0 until I
have completed packaging and testing rkhunter v1.2.1 (you can, of
course, choose to commit v1.2.0 to CVS without building for the Extras
repository). Sometimes, trying to keep up is hard...
During the span of approximately 1 month, there have been 4 new version
releases of rkhunter. While I was (for the most part) able to keep up
with these new upstream releases (creating new SRPMs within a week of
each release) I have not been able to get these committed into CVS for
package testing. With the New Extras Package Process still in a state
of 'flux' (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/NewPackageProcess) combined
with delays that are beyond my control, I've requested and have found
a sponsor for my being granted CVS commit access (now in the queue).

have been provided, along with gpg key info, ssh2 key, operating IP,
hostname and username. rkhunter has NOT been 'orphaned' (yet).
