Version     : 0.2.3
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : https://fedorahosted.org/netcf/
Summary     : Cross-platform network configuration library
Description :
Netcf is a library used to modify the network configuration of a
system. Network configurations are expressed in a platform-independent
XML format, which netcf translates into changes to the system's
'native' network configuration files.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update eliminates a potential crash due to netcf calling a non-threadsafe libnl function.

ChangeLog:

* Fri Dec 21 2012 Laine Stump <laine at redhat.com> - 0.2.3-1
- Rebase to netcf-0.2.3
- eliminate calls to nl_cache_mngt_provide(), to avoid
  non-threadsafe code in libnl (and because it isn't needed
  anyway) (This non-threadsafe code could lead to a segfault)
- portability fixes for FreeBSD
- fix bug when a config file has two config parameters with
  identical names
- add HACKING document
- always bail immediately if get_augeas fails (doing otherwise
  could lead to a segfault)
