rp-pppoe (3.8-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Adopt package.
* Cleanup: use orig.tar.gz, remove odd Makefiles and obsolete, sync with
upstream, update debian/copyright. Thanks to Florian Weimar.

rp-pppoe (3.8-1.1) unstable; urgency=high
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Hardcode path to pppd so that pppoe works even when there is no
pppd installed in the compilation chroot. Closes: #380584
2006-04-25 - Christian Hudon <chrish@debian.org>
rp-pppoe (3.8-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
* Upstream incorporated different version of security patch for -D and -p
that drops priviledges for these options. Dropping Debian patch.
2004-09-29 - Christian Hudon <chrish@debian.org>
rp-pppoe (3.5-4) unstable; urgency=high
* Added patch by Max Vozeler <max@hinterhof.net> to ignore -D and -p
when pppoe is not running as root to prevent a potential root
compromise by users in group dip when pppoe is running setuid root.
[src/pppoe.c, CAN-2004-0564] Note that group dip is empty by default
on Debian installs.
2003-09-16 - Christian Hudon <chrish@debian.org>
rp-pppoe (3.5-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Oops! pppoe should be installed setuid root, not setgid dip to close
bugs 102050 and 172376! Still installed without the execute bit for other, so
safe from a security standpoint, since group dip is empty by default.
* Remove debian/conffiles since debconf 4 creates it.
