Adding Gavin to the CC list.

Comment 2 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-09-05 21:51:00 UTC
I have just updated the development branch to version 3.2.1.  Unfortunately the
building system appears to be broken at the moment.  I will build asap.

patch from gentoo

On the gentoo wiki there is a patch to add a threshold and proper sigchld
handling at: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Protect_SSHD_with_Swatch.  This is an
updated version for 3.2.1.  I haven't submitted upstream, as somewhat like the
gentoo wiki indicates, I'm not sure this doesn't break other stuff.

Comment 4 Gavin Henry 2006-09-06 07:11:25 UTC
See what tests are t/* and maybe add one to check this change.


Comment 5 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-09-16 20:29:47 UTC
I have built 3.2.1-1 for FC-5 (already available in the repos) and FC-4 (to be
available after the next push).

Comment 6 Orion Poplawski 2007-10-17 19:51:05 UTC
Upstream: http://sourceforge.net/support/tracker.php?aid=1562324

Though upstream seems pretty dead.
