Name        : monotone
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 0.48.1
Release     : 1.fc13
URL         : http://monotone.ca/
Summary     : A free, distributed version control system
Description :
monotone is a free, distributed version control system.
It provides fully disconnected operation, manages complete
tree versions, keeps its state in a local transactional
database, supports overlapping branches and extensible
metadata, exchanges work over plain network protocols,
performs history-sensitive merging, and delegates trust
functions to client-side RSA certificates.

Update Information:

Update to monotone-0.48.1, which contains a fix for a DoS:

Running "mtn ''" or "mtn ls ''" doesn't cause an internal error anymore. In monotone 0.48 and earlier this behavior could be used to crash a server remotely (but only if it was configured to allow execution of remote commands). Therefore everyone running such a server should update as soon as possible.

There's also a fix for a non-critical issue:

Using mtn:// style URIs for netsync operations didn't work with 0.48 on systems which only have a 'monotone' entry in /etc/services. Failing to find a corresponding entry for the schema in a given URI isn't considered fatal now, instead mtn falls back to its default port.
