cvs 2:1.12.13+real-24 source package in Ubuntu


cvs (2:1.12.13+real-24) unstable; urgency=high

  * Update from MirBSD
    - fix for CVE-2017-12836 (Closes: #871810)
    - more robust $CVSROOT parsing
  * Policy 4.0.1
    - add nodoc build option
      ‣ I’m unclear on how this mixes with build profiles and/or
        Build-Depends exclusion; should I exclude ghostscript,
        groff, texinfo, texlive-* with <!nodocs> now, or are
        DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nodoc and the profile independent of
        each other? Info and patches welcome.
  * Drop explicit (thus redundant) autotools-dev B-D (lintian)
  * Update lintian overrides

cvs: Concurrent Versions System

 CVS is a version control system, which allows you to keep access
 to old versions of files (usually source code), keep a log of
 who, when, and why changes occurred, etc., like RCS or SCCS.
 It handles multiple developers, multiple directories, triggers to
 enable/log/control various operations, and can work over a wide
 area network. The texinfo manual provides further information on
 more tasks that it can perform.
 There are some tasks that are not covered by CVS. They can be done in
 conjunction with CVS but will tend to require some script-writing and
 software other than CVS. These tasks are bug-tracking, build management
 (that is, make and make-like tools), and automated testing. However,
 CVS makes these tasks easier.
 This package contains a CVS binary which can act as both client and
 server, although there is no CVS dæmon; to access remote repositories,
 please use :extssh: not :pserver: any more.
