Details about builds:


================================================================================
 TurboGears-1.0.9-3.el5 (FEDORA-EPEL-2010-3397)
 Back-to-front web development in Python
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Thu Sep 16 2010 Mark Chappell <tremble fedoraproject org> - 1.0.9-3
- Add explicit versions to ensure we install cleanly on EL-5 RHBZ#451228
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


================================================================================
 botan-1.8.10-1.el5 (FEDORA-EPEL-2010-3396)
 Crypto library written in C++
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Update to Botan 1.8.10. These are the release notes:    This release changes a
number of aspects of how private keys are encrypted. The default encryption
algorithm has changed from 3DES to AES-256; botan has supported AES for this
purpose for many years but 3DES was chosen as the default for compatibility with
other libraries. However supporting AES should not be a problem any longer in
recent libraries, so moving to a safer default seems reasonable. In addition,
the default iteration count for PBES1 and PBES2 encryption schemes (which are
used primarily to encrypt asymmetric keys like RSA or DSA) has increased from
2048 to 10000, which should make brute force key cracking substantially harder.
The first round of AES now uses a smaller set of lookup tables; this only
reduces performance slightly but some timing and cache analysis attacks against
AES are substantially harder when AES is implemented this way.    The class
known as S2K was renamed PBKDF in 1.9, with a typedef for backwards
compatibility. For providing an equivalent forward compatibility path, 1.8.10
includes a typedef for PBKDF and a new accessor function get_pbkdf. It also
includes a new interface for deriving keys with a passphrase which takes both
the passphrase and desired output length as well as the salt and iteration
count; in many cases this call is actually significantly more convenient than
the older API.

ChangeLog:

* Sat Sep  4 2010 Thomas Moschny <thomas moschny gmx de> - 1.8.10-1
- Update to 1.8.10.

 bti-028-1.el5 (FEDORA-EPEL-2010-3400)
 Bash Twitter/Identi.ca Idiocy
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update to bti enables OAuth authentication for Twitter and identi.ca. This
re-enables Twitter support, since basic authentication is now disabled by
Twitter.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Wed Sep  8 2010 Michel Salim <salimma fedoraproject org> - 028-1
- Update to 028

================================================================================
 etckeeper-0.49-2.el5 (FEDORA-EPEL-2010-3395)
 Store /etc in a SCM system (git, mercurial, bzr or darcs)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

The etckeeper program is a tool to let /etc be stored in a git, mercurial, bzr
or darcs repository. It hooks into yum to automatically commit changes made to
/etc during package upgrades. It tracks file metadata that version control
systems do not normally support, but that is important for /etc, such as the
permissions of /etc/shadow. It's quite modular and configurable, while also
being simple to use if you understand the basics of working with version
control.    The default backend is git, if want to use a another backend please
install the appropriate tool (mercurial, darcs or bzr). To use bzr as backend,
please also install the etckeeper-bzr package.    To start using the package
please read /usr/share/doc/etckeeper-0.49/README.
