 jailer     - Builds and maintains chrooted environments
Closes: 382318 410548
 jailer (0.4-10) unstable; urgency=high
   * Have updatejail use tempfile instead of the unsafe /tmp/$$.updatejail
     construct which makes it vulnerable to symlink attacks in /tmp/.
     Since this tool is run as root this is a severe bug and thus
     the urgency. (Closes: #410548)
   [ Minor program improvements ]
   * Fix updatejail so that the identifier matches exactly the name of the jail
     and does not match jails containing its name (Closes: #382318)
   * Fix a typo in the updatejail program output
   * Do not dump stderr to /dev/null when running cpio. This will make it
     print out a lot of cruft when creating makejails, but at least errors
     will be easy to spot.
   * Improve error messages in updatejail, check that the jail identifier
     is not empty and that the root directory exists.
   [ Documentation improvements ] 
   * Rewrite some places of the manpages to fix grammar and typos.
   * Note in updatejail's manpage that the Root: location has to match the
     identifier being used.
   [ Debian package changes ]
   * Use debhelper compatibility version 4
   * Use dh_installman instead of dh_installmanpages
   * Add a space to the Homepage line in debian/control
