Control Groups (cgroups) provide a mechanism for aggregating/partitioning sets
of tasks, and all their future children, into hierarchical groups with
specialized behaviour.
libcgroup allows one to manipulate, control, administrate and monitor cgroups
and the associated controllers.
This package contains the PAM module to move a user session into an existing
cgroup by attempting to match uid and gid against the defined cgroup rules

libcgroup (0.41-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/control:
- Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes needed)
- Drop autotools-dev build dependency, dh-autoreconf is sufficient
- Fix typo in libcgroup-dbg package description
* debian/source/options:
- Drop, as xz compression is now the default
* debian/rules:
- Drop override for dh_builddeb, xz compression is now the default
- Disable autoconf silent rules. The verbose output both generally useful
and also specifically for build log scanning (hardening flags, etc.)
- Simplify the installation stage through refactoring
* debian/copyright:
- Fix license shortname (BSD-3-clause, not BSD)
