Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : rsync
Version     : 2.6.8
Release     : 1.FC5.1

* Mon Jun 12 2006 Jay Fenlason <fenlason at redhat.com> 2.6.8-1.FC5.1
- Add my xattrs_bug patch to fix a bug where xattrs don't get sent correctly.
- Add BuildRequires to make sure libattr-devel and libacl-devel are avaliable
- replace --with... with --enable... so they actually work
- Add make, autoconf and gcc to BuildRequires

- New upstream release
- Use the upstream xattr patch instead of mine.  This closes
