Fedora Update Notification

Name        : etckeeper
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 0.58
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://kitenet.net/~joey/code/etckeeper/
Summary     : Store /etc in a SCM system (git, mercurial, bzr or darcs)
Description :
The etckeeper program is a tool to let /etc be stored in a git,
mercurial, bzr or darcs repository. It hooks into yum to automatically
commit changes made to /etc during package upgrades. It tracks file
metadata that version control systems do not normally support, but that
is important for /etc, such as the permissions of /etc/shadow. It's
quite modular and configurable, while also being simple to use if you
understand the basics of working with version control.

The default backend is git, if want to use a another backend please
install the appropriate tool (mercurial, darcs or bzr).
To use bzr as backend, please also install the etckeeper-bzr package.

To start using the package please read /usr/share/doc/etckeeper-0.58/README

Update Information:

Update to 0.58, a bugfix version.

From the upstream changelog:

 * Changed to store all permissions of files and directories, even those with standard permissions of 644 and 755. This is unfortunately necessary in order to support etckeeper init on a checkout that was made with a nonstandard umask, in which case the files that were expected to be 644 and 755, won't be. Closes: http://bugs.debian.org/649701 Thanks to Дмитрий Матросов for reporting the bug and developing a fixup script (attached to the bug) which could be used if you've already encountered this problem.
 * Bugfix for filenames containing single quotes.
 * Use git add -A, which automatically removes deleted files, and avoids a separate call to git add -u. Thanks to Miklos Vajna, whose patch in 2008 was deferred because -A was then too new, and languished in a branch until found today.
 * Optimised metadata storage.
 * cron.daily: Don't stop committing when a stale packagelist.pre-install file exists. Thanks to gulikoza for noticing this bug.
