 refpolicy (0.0.20061018-3) unstable; urgency=high
   * Bug fix: "refpolicy: FTBFS: /bin/sh: debian/stamp/config-strict: No
     such file or directory", thanks to Lucas Nussbaum. This was fixed by
     moving all the stamps into ./debian instead. I'll re-visit the
     ./debian/stamp/ directory in lenny. This is a pretty minor packaging
     change.                                                 (Closes: #405613).
   * Bug fix: "selinux-policy-refpolicy-targeted: Policy for dcc misses
     Debian's FHS paths", thanks to Devin Carraway. From the bug report:
     Many of the files in these packages are overlooked when labelling
     files, because refpolicy's dcc module stipulates paths not consistent
     with the Debian FHS layout.  The files go unlabelled and dcc-client
     (at least) stops working. The two major problems  are the references
     to /usr/libexec/dcc (damons, placed in /usr/sbin by the Debian
     packages) and to /var/dcc (all sorts of things, placed under
     /var/lib/dcc).  A side effect of the latter is that dccifd_t and
     probably others need search on var_lib_t, through which it must pass
     to get to /var/lib/dcc.  Fixed the policy; will send upstream.
                                                              (Closes: #404309).
   * Bug fix: "selinux-policy-refpolicy-targeted: clamav policy forbids
     clamd_t search on /var/lib", thanks to Devin Carraway.  This is a
     simple one line change, and obviously an oversight; I think getting
     clamd to work is fairly important.                        (Closes: #404895).
   * Bug fix: "selinux-policy-refpolicy-targeted: Multiple problems with
     courier policy", thanks to Devin Carraway.  There is detailed
     information of the changes made in the bug report, and in the commit
     logs. Again, fixing courier daemons seems pretty important; SELinux
     tends to get used a lot on remote mail servers, and this fixes issues
     with the policy.                                          (Closes: #405103).
 refpolicy (0.0.20061018-2) unstable; urgency=high
   * The This update enables MCS for targeted and strict, uses 1024
     categories (as Fedora uses - necessary for compatability). Please note
     that enabling MCS categories is required for compatibility with
     filesystems created on Fedora Core 5 and above, RHEL 5 and above, and
     CentOS 5 and above.  MCS categories is also a feature that we plan for
     all future releases of SE Linux and does not have a nice upgrade path
     - releasing etch without MCS will make things painful for SE Linux
     users on the upgrade to lenny. This feature has been extensively
     tested by Russel Coker and myself, and does not otherwise impact the
   * Allow semanage to use the initrd file descriptor in targeted policy.
   * Fix a bug with restorecon.
   * Bug fix: "refpolicy: qemu should have execmem permissions", thanks to
     David Haerdeman                                       (Closes: #402293).
