Nss_db is a set of C library extensions which allow Berkeley Databases
to be used as a primary source of aliases, ethers, groups, hosts,
networks, protocol, users, RPCs, services, and shadow passwords
(instead of or in addition to using flat files or NIS). Install nss_db
if your flat name service files are too large and lookups are slow.

2014-04-21 - Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com> - 2.2.3-0.5.pre1.1
- bump and rebuild (#1088776)
2014-03-17 - Carlos Santos <csantos@redhat.com>
- Fix BZ#1076574: Memory leak in nss_db in db-open.c internal_setent()
2012-02-06 - Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com> - 2.2.3-0.5.pre1
- when the initgroups function needs to parse a group entry which contains a
large list of users, reinitialize the buffer that we pass to the parsing
function, which destroyed what we passed to it the previous time (#751461)
2011-05-18 - Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com> - 2.2.3-0.4.pre1
- import patch to handle initgroups directly rather than forcing libc to
use the enumeration interfaces, which could result in two threads calling
initgroups() at the same time to both get a subset of the right answers
2010-04-07 - Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com> - 2.2.3-0.3.pre1
- import Kees Cook's patch to fix accidental leakage of part of ./DB_CONFIG
(#580192, CVE-2010-0826)
2010-02-05 - Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com> - 2.2.3-0.2.pre1
- correct some tests in the patch for detecting SELinux support (#562052)
2010-01-25 - Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com> - 2.2.3-0.1.pre1
- update to 2.2.3pre1, which you can still get from upstream
- build with -fno-strict-aliasing to avoid problems triggered by strict aliasing
- package the translations
2010-01-25 - Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com> - 2.2-46
- update to DB 4.6.21, which you can still get from upstream
2009-11-30 - Dennis Gregorovic <dgregor@redhat.com> - 2.2-45.1
- Rebuilt for RHEL 6
2009-07-25 - Fedora Release Engineering <rel-eng@lists.fedoraproject.org> - 2.2-45
