Official Mirror:
remctl is a client/server protocol for executing specific commands on a remote system with Kerberos authentication. The allowable commands must be listed in a server configuration file, and the executable run on the server may be mapped to any command name. Each command is also associated with an ACL containing a list of Kerberos principals authorized to run that command. This package contains the Net::Remctl Perl library, which provides native Perl bindings for the libremctl client library. It also contains the Net::Remctl::Backend module, which assists in writing remctl backends in Perl.

    2014-07-02 - Russ Allbery <> remctl (3.9-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release. - New server ACL type, localgroup, which converts the principal to a local username and then checks for membership in a local group. - Fix incorrect handling of interruptions of network writes by signals in the server. - Prefer calloc and reallocarray when allocating memory with multiplication. - Restore the SIGPIPE handler before running a command. - Add version and compatibility information to all manual pages. * Use an executable debian/libnet-remctl-perl.install file to pull the correct Perl arch-specific vendor module path from Perl during the build. Should fix builds with Perl 5.20. Thanks, Niko Tyni and gregor herrmann. (Closes: #752902) * Build-Depend on krb5-config to get enough of a Kerberos configuration for some test cases that are KDC-independent to run. * Fix Upstream-Contact email address in debian/copyright. * Remove most debian/tmp prefixes from debhelper *.install files. These have not been needed since compat level 7. Retain them only for the remctl-server.install file, which pulls files from both the source tree and the installed binary tree and benefits from the disambiguation.

    2014-04-11 - Russ Allbery <> remctl (3.8-3) unstable; urgency=medium * Build-Depend on the version of gem2deb with working multi-binary package support for native extensions. * Fix the exclusion rule for dh_install --fail-missing to ignore the Ruby module under both the 2.0 and 1.9.1 paths. (dh_ruby --install will go back and install the module in the correct locations.) Should fix FTBFS in Ubuntu, which still has Ruby 1.9.1.

    2014-04-08 - Russ Allbery <> remctl (3.8-2) unstable; urgency=medium * Add upstream patch to increase the buffer size on timeout tests. Linux has apparently increased the size of network writes it is willing to buffer internally, so we now have to write more data to force a timeout. (Closes: #743991) * Use gem2deb to build and install the Ruby module. This will automatically use the current supported Ruby versions, avoiding the need for sourceful uploads for new Ruby releases. Thanks to Christian Hofstaedtler for the patch. * Remove now-unneeded Lintian override for the upstream signing key. * Add a Lintian override for the dual-licensed protocol specification.
