 samba (3.0.26a-1ubuntu1) gutsy; urgency=low
   * debian/patches/chgpasswd.patch:
     - Set locale to 'C' while calling the passwd change program
   * Merge from debian unstable, remaining changes:
     * debian/patches/VERSION.patch:
       - set SAMBA_VERSION_VENDOR_SUFFIX to Ubuntu
     * debian/control:
       - Remove typehandling (not used in Ubuntu)
     * debian/samba-common.templates:
       - Set default workgroup to MSHOME
     * debian/rules:
       - Remove type-handling.
     * debian/samba.init:
       - Make sure $PIDDIR exists (/var/run is a tmpfs)
       - Ubuntu's log_progress_msg is a no-op, so to avoid confusion, don't
         say specifically which daemons we're handling. (LP #25803)
     * debian/smb.conf:
       - Add "(Samba, Ubuntu)" to server string.
       - Change the (commented-out) "printer admin" example to use "@lpadmin"
         instead of "@ntadmin", since the lpadmin group is used for spool admin.
       - Comment out the default [homes] shares and add more verbose comments to
         explain what they do and how they work (LP #27608). Also, add a
         comment about "valid users = %S" to show users how to restrict access
         to \\server\username to only username.
     * debian/panic-action:
       - Bail out if there's no "mail" command.
       - Alter the panic-action script to link to the samba bug reporting page
         on Launchpad.
     * debian/samba-common.config:
       - do not change priority to HIGH if dhclient3 is installed
 samba (3.0.26a-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release.
   * Remove the samba-common/unsupported-passdb debconf template and
     the associated code in samba-common.postinst, that deals with pre-etch
     versions transition
   * Remove the samba/tdbsam template and the remaining line referencing
     it (for no need) in samba.postinst. That code was removed in 3.0.23c-2
     and was dealing with pre-3.0 transitions.
 samba (3.0.26-1) unstable; urgency=high
   * New upstream release: security update for CVE-2007-4138:
     incorrect primary group assignment for domain users using the rfc2307 or
     sfu winbind nss info plugin.

   * new upstream released from 2007-08-20
     - added smbfs deprecation information to help and manpage
       Closes: #360384
     - fixed winbind leaking file descriptors
       Closes: #410663
     - fixed smbpasswd fails with errorcode SUCCESS as normal user
       Closes: #155345

   * Drop the (upstream unmaintained) python bindings (python-samba package)
   * swat: turn the dependency on samba-doc to a Recommends:
     Thanks to Peter Eisentraut for dealing with that issue and bringing it
     back. Closes: #391742
 samba (3.0.25b-2) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Steve Langasek ]
   * Don't start nmbd if 'disable netbios' is set in the config.
     Closes: #429429.
   * missing_userspace_bugzilla999.patch: always use opt_gid and opt_uid,
     set to those of the invoking user, when called as non-root.
     Closes: #431661.
   * Fix up fhs.patch for some new FHS regressions:
     - make sure all references to winbindd_idmap.tdb look in /var/lib/samba
     - make sure all references to winbindd_cache.tdb look in /var/cache/samba
     - share_info.tdb belongs in /var/lib/samba; this is a regression
       introduced in 3.0.23-1, so fix up this path on samba upgrade
     - move the ADS "gpo" cache directory to /var/cache/samba
     - move idmap_cache.tdb to /var/cache/samba, and fix up the path on
       winbind upgrade
   * linux-cifs-user-perms.patch: also support setting a default uid and gid
     value when mount.cifs is called as non-root
   * cifs-umount-trailing-slashes.patch: canonicalize mount point names when
     umount.cifs is called, to avoid unnecessarily leaving entries behind in
     /etc/mtab if invoked with a trailing slash in the mount point name
   * cifs-umount-same-user.patch: the CIFS_IOC_CHECKMOUNT ioctl check
     in umount.cifs assumed that errors would return a value > 0, when in fact
     the return value on failure is -1.  Correct this assumption, which was
     allowing any user to unmount shares mounted by other users.
   * smbpasswd-syslog.patch: Fix pam_smbpass to no longer call openlog()
     and closelog(), since this will interfere with syslogging behavior
     of the calling application.  Closes: #434372.
   * swat should depend only on inet-superserver, not update-inetd, per
     Marco d'Itri.
   [ Christian Perrier ]
   * debian/panic-action: bail out if there's no "mail" command
     Patch from the Ubuntu samba packagers.
   * debian/smb.conf: use the comment from Ubuntu package for the "valid users"
     setting of [homes] as a basis for ours. Ubuntu's wording is better.
   [ Peter Eisentraut ]
   * Don't ignore errors from make distclean, as per lintian check
   [ Debconf translations ]
   * Gujarati updated. Closes: #436215
