Fedora Updated package.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : sudo
Version     : 1.6.8p8
Release     : 2.1
Summary     : Allows restricted root access for specified users.
Description :
Sudo (superuser do) allows a system administrator to give certain
users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands
as root while logging all commands and arguments. Sudo operates on a
per-command basis.  It is not a replacement for the shell.  Features
include: the ability to restrict what commands a user may run on a
per-host basis, copious logging of each command (providing a clear
audit trail of who did what), a configurable timeout of the sudo
command, and the ability to use the same configuration file (sudoers)
on many different machines.


* Tue May 24 2005 Karel Zak  1.6.8p8-2.1

- fix #154511 – sudo does not use limits.conf
