Binary package hint: seccure


seccure 0.3-2 contains a critical bug-fix for the package, where it is rendered
completely useless without it. We should not ship Intrepid with the current

I am the Debian maintainer, and I made the upload to fix it.



seccure  (0.3-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Make failure to mlock all memory only a warning, and re-enable gcrypt's
     memory locking. Changes in pam since etch mean that the kernel's defaults
     for memory locking are now respected, and seccure tries to lock more
     memory than that, which means that the program can't be started. The patch
     is from the upstream author, who considers it a stop-gap, but doesn't
     anticipate having a proper fix before lenny. (Closes: #489835)
   * Don't ignore "$(MAKE) clean" errors. The normal reason for this is the use
     of autotools leading to the makefile not necessarily being present when
     the clean target is run, be this package doesn't use autotools, so that
     won't happen.
   * Add a description to debian/patches/10-man-hyphen.dpatch.
   * Update the standards version to 3.8.0 (no changes required).
   * Release team: this isn't the diff that I sent you, I apologise. My sponsor
     suggested that fixing these small things wouldn't be a problem.
