This package provides an implementation of VRRPv2 as specified in rfc2338.
It runs in the Linux kernel's userspace (as root).
VRRP can be used to setup high-availability services in Debian since two
machines can use the same (virtual) IP address which is transfered upon
failover. Some kernel features need to be enabled (please read the FAQ)

2010-10-27 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@debian.org>
vrrpd (1.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Prevent infinite loop in systems with only one route defined and no
gateway. (Closes: 601327)
* Use debhelper compatibility version 5
* debian/control: Move Homepage to header
2004-08-26 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>
vrrpd (1.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New "upstream" version. Actually upstream is more or less dead and
inactive since the version at Sourceforge does not provide patches
developed by other maintainers (incoporated in this package). 
In any case the Debian package is now going to be based on this one 
(to facilitate patch development)
* Removed the RFCs from the upstream package, to avoid reproducing
* Debian/copyright and control now point to sourceforge as upstream
(Closes: #267821)
* Ported all patches to the new code.
* Syslog calls are now vrrpd_log calls for consistency with 1.0's code.
* Included Sourceforge's Track Item [ 990755 ] daemon.c and -b option, only
that I've changed it's behaviour and called it -D, by default, vrrpd
will _not_ daemonize. It might actually be useful when an init script
is added to the package (start-stop-daemon could be used too, of course).
* Added more info on VRRP implementations and some other information tidbits
in README.Debian
* Fixed some typos in the manpage and modify BUG info to tell users to
report bugs upstream.
* debian/rules cleanup
2004-05-23 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>
vrrpd (0.7.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed typo in control file (Closes: #227669)
* Send most error messages to the syslog with patch from Pascal Lengard,
since this is potentially dangerous, added a note in the TODO
since this needs further review and potentially a command line switch
to determine wether to log to syslog or not and the debug level to use.
(Closes: #226911)
* Added the output of running RATS ('rats.output') in the source in
order to do a security audit review in the near future.
2003-12-20 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>
vrrpd (0.7.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Minor upstream bump to force inclusion of .orig.tar.gz which was
not properly included previously
* Removed RFCs from package : rfc2338.txt.vrrp, 
draft-ietf-vrrp-spec-v2-05.txt and 
draft-jou-duplicate-ip-address-02.txt (Closes: #199816)
* Applied patch contributed by Johann Klasek, upstream has not 
approved it but the comment is clear enough (Closes: #199911)
* Included alignment patch provided by Nicolas S. Dade which fixes
bus fault on sparc (Closes: #199795)
* Included patch from Chao-Cheng Wu which:
- will not remove the routing table entries added after VRRP
was started in the event of a failover.
- will not fail if the gateway of the early routing entry is
base on the late routing entry  (?)
(Closes: #223859)
2003-04-03 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>
vrrpd (0.7-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Applied patch so that vrrpd logs to syslog with patch provided by
Dariush Pietrzak (Closes: #187240)
* Fixed lintian warning
2002-12-17 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>
