Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2008-04-06 05:28:29 EDT
Robert, as you have noticed, the only change between 4.9 and 5.0 is the patch
that is used in Fedora packages for a while.  See:


I don't think this should block F9Target.
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2008-04-06 05:40:38 EDT
If the patch is already in Fedora, you're right.
Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2008-04-07 09:41:55 EDT
I plan to upgrade to openssh-5.0p1 after F9 is released - we are already past
feature freeze so a few weeks in testing updates seem to me more appropriate.
Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2008-04-08 02:55:35 EDT
After reviewing the changes I decided to update it in rawhide.
