Name        : libvirt
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 0.6.2
Release     : 13.fc11
URL         : http://libvirt.org/
Summary     : Library providing a simple API virtualization
Description :
Libvirt is a C toolkit to interact with the virtualization capabilities
of recent versions of Linux (and other OSes).

Update Information:

This update contains two fixes.    The first is for a libvirtd segfault if you
do "virsh capabilities" followed by "virsh dominfo". Thanks to Stephen Smalley
for finding this and Dan Berrange for fixing this.    The second is where
libvirt was unnecessarily trying to set the SELinux context on a file when it
didn't need to. Thanks to Tim Waugh for finding and fixing this one.
