2006-09-15 - Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0.8.91-1
- make 'id ...' succeed everytime in the wrapper
- append a '%nil' in a new line to %FE_USERADD_REQ
2006-04-27 - Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0.8.90-2
- moved most content of the base package and used directories into a
-core subpackage; this avoids dependencies loops.
- renamed -setup into the much longer -default-fedora-setup; because
yum's depsolver is not very smart (and choses packages with smallest
name) it might is more difficult to provide a custom -setup package
- added -devel subpackages with a /etc/rpm/macros.fedora-usermgmt file
2006-02-18 - Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0.8-2
- added the %dist release-tag
2005-12-10 - Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0.8-1
- fixed URL metadata (bz #172758)
- execute 'nscd -i ...' before and after creating users/groups; this
should workaround nscd caching problems
- minor cleanups and logging enhancements in the wrapper script
2005-04-07 - Michael Schwendt <mschwendt[AT]users.sf.net>
- rebuilt
2004-03-20 - Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0:0.7-0.fdr.2
- applied patch from https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=701#c10
I should not defer such things but apply them immediatly...
2004-03-20 - Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0:0.7-0.fdr.1
- added some '(Pre)' modifiers to ensure correct installation when a
package has 'Requires: fedora-usermgmt'
- removed the '%dir %confdir' from the main-package, it causes apt
to fail because of dependency loops; this is not really correct
since -setup (which owns %confdir) is a virtual package and other
instances might missing it
- split the double Requires(...,...): statements; see
- added support for logging: when /etc/fedora/usermgmt/log exists, every
output of the commands will be redirected into this file. Usually it
is not a regular file but a symlink somewhere into /var/log
2003-11-08 - Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0:0.6-0.fdr.1
- removed duplicate '--help' handling in useradd script
- own /etc/fedora by the -setup subpackage, and require this dir in the
main-package. This is a temporary hack to avoid orphaned directories
and related problems; final solution will be that /etc/fedora is
owned by a filesystem-like basepackage.
2003-11-02 - Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0:0.5-0.fdr.1
- added basic sanity checks and '--help' to wrapper-scripts
- tied -shadow-utils to main-package
- use %_sysconfdir instead of /etc
- fixed typos in README (thanks to Michael Schwendt)
2003-09-24 - Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> - 0:0.4-0.fdr.1
- added -setup subpackage to allow customization of baseuid/gid at
