Name        : myproxy
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 5.5
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://grid.ncsa.illinois.edu/myproxy/
Summary     : Manage X.509 Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security credentials
Description :
MyProxy is open source software for managing X.509 Public Key Infrastructure
(PKI) security credentials (certificates and private keys). MyProxy
combines an online credential repository with an online certificate
authority to allow users to securely obtain credentials when and where needed.
Users run myproxy-logon to authenticate and obtain credentials, including
trusted CA certificates and Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs).

Update Information:

A bugfix in myproxy-server:

Changes in this release:

* undo escaping of POSIX extended regular expression meta-characters in myproxy-server authorization policies (introduced in v5.1) to enable full use of POSIX ERE capabilities. For literal matching of parentheses and brackets, the characters must again be explicitly escaped (i.e., '\(' and '\)'). Non-POSIX handling of wildcard characters ('*' and '?') is maintained for backward compatibility, so these characters must be escaped if POSIX ERE behavior is desired (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7211)
* in MyProxy CA, ensure that any domainComponent or emailAddress components in the certificate subject are type IA5String per RFC 5280 (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7201)
* add myproxy-logon --certreq option, to accept an externally generated certificate request rather than generating private key and request internally (http://bugzilla.ncsa.uiuc.edu/show_bug.cgi?id=347)
* in myproxy-server, fix abort when processing INFO response when the user has stored credentials both with and without a credential name; bug was introduced in myproxy-server v4.9 (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7209)
* use /var/lib/myproxy as first choice default storage directory, for Filesystem Hierarchy Standard compliance; still fallback to /var/myproxy and $GLOBUS_LOCATION/var/myproxy for alternatives
* fix erroneous error message when no VOMS attributes found (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7207)

* Sat Oct  1 2011 Steve Traylen <steve.traylen at cern.ch> - 5.5-1
- Update to version 5.5, drop myproxy-globus-7129.patch, pII, pIII,
  fixed upstream.
- No longer hard code /var/lib/myproxy since the default anyway now.
* Thu Sep  1 2011 Steve Traylen <steve.traylen at cern.ch> - 5.4-4
- Add myproxy-globus-7129-PartII.patch patch and 
  myproxy-globus-7129-PartIII.patch patch.
* Wed Aug 31 2011 Steve Traylen <steve.traylen at cern.ch> - 5.4-3
