Dear freshmeat.net subscriber,
courtesan just announced version 1.7.2 of sudo on freshmeat.net.
The changes are as follows:
This release introduces a new #includedir directive to sudoers, which can be
used to implement an /etc/sudo.d directory. User and group names in sudoers may
now be enclosed in double quotes to avoid having to escape special characters.
Bugfixes include a fix for the -g option when only setting the group, a hang in
visudo checking aliases, support for shell-style /etc/environment files on
Linux, BSM audit fixes when changing to a non-root UID, setenv() compatibility
fixes for Linux systems, and a work-around for certificate and key file problems
on Netscape-derived LDAP SDKs.
Sudo (su "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.
