    https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/proftpd-1.3.3e-1.el5
    https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/rt3-3.6.10-2.el5
    https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/loggerhead-1.18.1-1.el5
    https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/python-feedparser-5.0.1-1.el5


The following builds have been pushed to Fedora EPEL 5 updates-testing

    certmaster-0.28-1.el5
    func-0.28-1.el5
    pam_shield-0.9.5-4.el5
    proftpd-1.3.3e-1.el5

Details about builds:


================================================================================
 certmaster-0.28-1.el5 (FEDORA-EPEL-2011-3014)
 Remote certificate distribution framework
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

- working properly with python 2.7+ :)
- new cpu module
- new yumcmd module
- func-command, func-find-user, func-down-hosts, func-list-vms-per-host,
func-ps-compare, func-whatsmyname, func-yum
- fix hostname finding
- add 'allow_unknown_minions' option to overlord - let's us have minions we don't have the certs available for locally but we know the host exists. Func will attempt to make the connection based on just resolving the name. If it resolves and the cert the host offers is signed by our Certmaster/CA then it will continue as normal.
- getfile module added (opposite of putfile with sensible directory
ideas)
- lots of fixes to the grouping code with puppetminions
- when we  create dirs for our command dbs on the overlord side, don't
assume everyone is global and root - behave when run as a user.
