Name        : proftpd
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.3.4a
Release     : 7.fc16
URL         : http://www.proftpd.org/
Summary     : Flexible, stable and highly-configurable FTP server
Description :
ProFTPD is an enhanced FTP server with a focus toward simplicity, security,
and ease of configuration. It features a very Apache-like configuration
syntax, and a highly customizable server infrastructure, including support for
multiple 'virtual' FTP servers, anonymous FTP, and permission-based directory

This package defaults to the standalone behavior of ProFTPD, but all the
needed scripts to have it run by xinetd instead are included.

Update Information:

This update fixes a couple of issues relating to log rotation:

* The server wasn't signaled properly that the logs had been rotated (Bug #802178)

* Each reload of the server would leak a file descriptor
