Summary     : A new general purpose Nagios-plugin for retrieving data
Description :
check-mk is a general purpose Nagios-plugin for retrieving data. It adopts a
new approach for collecting data from operating systems and network components.
It obsoletes NRPE, check_by_ssh, NSClient, and check_snmp and it has many
benefits, the most important are a significant reduction of CPU usage on
the Nagios host and an automatic inventory of items to be checked on hosts.

Update Information:

New upstream release: 1.2.6p1

* Mon Apr 13 2015 Andrea Veri <averi at fedoraproject.org> - 1.2.6p1-1
- New upstream release.
* Tue Apr  7 2015 Andrea Veri <averi at fedoraproject.org> - 1.2.6-1
- New upstream release. Source0 is now generated directly from Git
  as Check-Mk's upstream has decided to not include source code files
  (.cc, .c) for livestatus, mkeventd and waitmax anymore on the tarballs
  they release. We want to have these binaries built during the RPM build,
  thus the need to repack the tarball with the procedure outlined above.
- Include the 02-Downtime-Struct-Update patch to prevent Nagios to core dump
  when a downtime is set. This was caused by a change on the downtime struct
  applied in the course of Nagios 3's development. Thanks Mike Battersby for
  the patch. (BZ: #1083003)
- Filter the /usr/bin/bash require on EL 6 as it's available under /bin/bash,
  additionally fix the /usr/bin/pnp shebang from the plugins/unitrends_backup file
  as that is a non-existent binary file, upstream probably meant php.
- PLUGINSDIR on the check_mk_agent binary file is set to be
  %{_datadir}/check-mk-agent/plugins, make sure all the plugins are installed
  there and not on %{_datadir}/check_mk/plugins instead.
* Tue Sep 30 2014 Andrea Veri <averi at fedoraproject.org> - 1.2.4p5-2
- Do not require any other shell than bash since that's the default
  shell for the Fedora / RHEL distributions.
* Wed Sep 17 2014 Andrea Veri <averi at fedoraproject.org> - 1.2.4p5-1
- New upstream release. Fixes CVEs:
  - CVE-2014-5338 
  - CVE-2014-5339
  - CVE-2014-5340 (BZ: #1132337, #1132339, #1132341)
- Stop shipping the j4p_performance plugin as it's deprecated. (BZ: #1133068)
- Turn Wato_Legacy_Eval as True as we want to prevent breakages
  between machines running different Python and/or check-mk releases.
  This is necessary after the 'ast' move from 'pickle' (that was
  generating a insecure API call), however the 'ast' module is still
  not available for RHEL / CentOS 5 machines. The patch is there to 
  avoid miscommunications between different distribution releases. More
  information is available at:
* Sat Aug 16 2014 Fedora Release Engineering <rel-eng at lists.fedoraproject.org> - 1.2.4p2-4

* Tue May 27 2014 Andrea Veri <averi at fedoraproject.org> - 1.2.4p2-2
- Install the mk-job binary on /usr/bin.
- Make sure the proper permissions are given to /var/lib/check_mk_agent/job
  to prevent any hard or symlink to be created by a normal user and pointing
  to any file on the filesystem exposing it on the check-mk-agent output being
  run as root. Fixes BZ #1101669.

  - CVE-2014-2330
  - CVE-2014-2331
