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

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
- 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

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.

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.
