Name        : deltarpm
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 3.4
Release     : 18.fc11
URL         : http://www.novell.com/products/linuxpackages/professional/deltarpm.html
Summary     : Create deltas between rpms
Description :
A deltarpm contains the difference between an old
and a new version of a rpm, which makes it possible
to recreate the new rpm from the deltarpm and the old
one. You don't have to have a copy of the old rpm,
deltarpms can also work with installed rpms.

Update Information:

deltarpm prior to the current build ships with a bundled copy of zlib. This
version of zlib has a known vulnerability with CVE identifier: CAN-2005-1849
This build of deltarpm patches the program to use the system zlib (which was
fixed when the vulnerability was first discovered) instead of the bundled copy.

ChangeLog:

* Mon Oct  5 2009 Jonathan Dieter  - 3.4-18
- Re-split off drpmsync from main package
* Wed Sep 30 2009 Toshio Kuratomi  - 3.4-17
- Work around cvs tag problem
* Wed Sep 30 2009 Toshio Kuratomi  - 3.4-16
- Build against the system zlib, not the bundled library.  This remedies the
  fact that the included zlib is affected by CAN-2005-1849.
- Fix cfile_detect_rsync() to detect rsync even if we don't have a zlib capable
  of making rsync-friendly compressed files.
