    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 else - 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 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=118773 - 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 installation-time
