audit-2.0.1 released



Hi,

I've just released a new version of the audit daemon. It can be downloaded 
from http://people.redhat.com/sgrubb/audit. It will also be in rawhide  
soon. The ChangeLog is:

- Aulast now reads daemon_start events for the kernel version of reboot
- Clarify the man pages for ausearch/report regarding locale and date formats
- Fix getloginuid for python bindings
- Disable the audispd af_unix plugin by default
- Add a couple new init script actions for LSB 3.2
- In audisp-remote plugin, timeout network reads (#514090)
- Make some error logging in audisp-remote plugin more prominent
- Add audit.rules man page
- Interpret the session field in audit events

This is mostly a bug fix release. It was noticed in aulast that all the 
kernel's being printed were the same. Now we extract that information from 
DAEMON_START events which records the uname info.

The python bindings for getloginuid made an error on the uid_t data type. 
Ausearch now interprets ses=-1 to unset.

The af_unix plugin was enabled by default since setroubleshooter was acting as 
a standalone daemon. It has been starting off of audispd for a while, so now 
there should be no known applications needing af_unix.

The initscripts were not 100% LSB 3.2 compliant. They should be now.

In some situations, the audisp-remote plugin was not timing out fast enough on 
some network errors. This has been fixed.

And in the interest in helping people write audit rules, a new man page 
"audit.rules" has been added with a very long explanation of a lot of issues.

Please let me know if you run across any problems with this release.

-Steve

PS - there will a release in the 1.7 branch soon rolling up a lot of bug fixes 
from the trunk.
