Name        : xrootd
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 4.2.3
Release     : 1.fc23
URL         : http://xrootd.org/
Summary     : Extended ROOT file server
Description :
The Extended root file server consists of a file server called xrootd
and a cluster management server called cmsd.

The xrootd server was developed for the root analysis framework to
serve root files. However, the server is agnostic to file types and
provides POSIX-like access to any type of file.

The cmsd server is the next generation version of the olbd server,
originally developed to cluster and load balance Objectivity/DB AMS
database servers. It provides enhanced capability along with lower
latency and increased throughput.

Update Information:

**Major bug fixes**    * **[Server]** Avoid SEGV if cmsd login fails very early.
* **[Server]** Avoid SEGV when an excessively long readv vector is presented.
* **[Server]** Rationalize non-specfic locate requests.   * **[XrdCl]** Process
waitresp synchronously via Ignore return to avoid SEGV.   * **[XrdCl]** Avoid
memory leak when a handler returns Ignore for a taken message.    * **[XrdCl]**
Fix "tried" logic by forwarding the errNo
