issue, several bugs, and adds various enhancements is now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0.

example, nova) without any authentication. (CVE-2013-6470)

This update also fixes several bugs and adds enhancements. Documentation
for these changes is available in the Technical Notes document linked to
in the References section.
