Description Pekka Savola 2000-09-22 15:16:03 EDT
This patch (straight from FreeBSD 4.x) changes tcp_wrappers behaviour 
slightly by allowing you to obtain names to be matched from separate files, e.g.

sshd : /etc/ssh/ssh_allow_hosts.global /etc/ssh/ssh_allow_hosts.local : allow
sshd : ALL : deny

This can be _very_ handy if you have to synchronize data like that, or don't 
want /etc/hosts.allow too cluttered up.

Please consider this for RH 7.1.
