 libnss-mdns - NSS module for Multicast DNS name resolution
Closes: 404266 404534 405327 406198
Launchpad-Bugs-Fixed: 87207
 nss-mdns (0.9-0.2ubuntu1) feisty; urgency=low
   * Merge from debian unstable, remaining changes:
     - debian/postinst: Automatically transition the dapper default hosts: line
       'files dns mdns' to the recommended value, since dns before mdns is
       inefficient, a DNS server DoS, and an information leak.
   * Now ships libraries in /lib, not /usr/lib. (LP: #87207)
   * Reapply debian/patches/00_dns_unaligned_access.patch; debian/rules does
     not do this, and this got dropped in an earlier merge.
   * debian/control: Set Ubuntu maintainer.
 nss-mdns (0.9-0.2) unstable; urgency=high
   * Non-maintainer upload to fix a RC bug.
   * Configure with a prefix of / instead of /usr as libnss-mdns needs to be in
     /lib for the resolver to work correctly during boot; this is also needed
     for chrooted processes such as Postfix's smtpd which uses a copy of the
     NSS libs as well of the NSS configuration and fails when mdns is missing
     in the chroot but referenced in nsswitch.conf.  Update other configured
     dirs (mandir, infodir, sysconfdir) as well, but these are currently not
 nss-mdns (0.9-0.1) unstable; urgency=high
   * Non-maintainer upload to fix broken dependencies in the 0.8-6.1 NMU.
   * Fix Depends on perl and avahi-daemon.
   * Bump up dependency on avahi-daemon to >= 0.6.16-1 for the auto-disabling
     functionality on sites with a .local SOA.
   * New upstream release.
     - Does not export unnecessary symbols and fixes segfault in nmbclient
       which had symbols with the same name; closes: #404266.
     - Does not use the "search" keyword of resolv.conf anymore;
       closes: #404534, #405327.
   * Re-add a postrm to cleanup the mdns_* entries from nsswitch.conf but act on
     package removal instead of purge to avoid breaking the DNS when the lib is
     removed and to ensure perl is still present; closes: #406198.
   * Document the changes made to postinst in NOTES.Debian and document the
     history of the postrm as well.
   * Updates to README.Debian; add upstream URL for troubleshooting.
