	   reported as such.
	rdiff:
	 . Fix include/exclude paths with spaces (Closes: #398435)
	 . Fix confusing error if rdiff-backup cannot be found on remote server.
	 . Increased element number in include/exclude and vserver ninjahelper interface
	sys:

	   fall-back if mktemp did not exist on the system
    handler changes
	dup:
	 . General cleanup
	 . Better support for new duplicity (>= 0.4.4) command line syntax:
	   run remove-older-than when $keep is not set to yes (Closes: #458816),
	   and run "duplicity cleanup" before any other duplicity command; both
	   only trigger a warning on failure, since they should not stop backups
	   from being done. Also migrated full/incremental backup switch to the
	   new syntax.
	 . Support every duplicity-supported transport with new configuration
	   option desturl (Closes: #483712, #346040, Trac#2).
	 . Actually allow to backup only VServers, by relaxing $include test.

	   a website to a local folder, based on the rsync handler
	maildir:
	 . fixed bug where maildirs that start with a number were skipped
	 . make maildir helper look in every subdirectory of the source directory for
	   maildirs, rather than just looking in the directories [a-zA-Z0-9], thanks
	   for the patch from chris@cenolan.com (Trac#43).
	 . make deleted maildirs record the date they were deleted
	 . add destid_file configuration option to enable you to specify an alternate
	   ssh public key authentication file (defaulting to /root/.ssh/id_rsa)
	pgsql, mysql, svn, sys:
	 . use new vservers_running function from lib/vserver (factorization++)
	sys:

	 . support selection of VServers to run on, in the same way as in the
	   dup handler, with the new vsnames configuration option ; (Closes: Trac#45)
	 . add support for capturing the package debconf selection states using
	   debconf-get-selections
	 . fixed catifexec function to actually work, also now passes the arguments
	   given to catifexec() to the called command (Thanks John Hallam!)
	 . Added more robust software RAID information capture by running mdadm
	   -Q --detail /dev/md?* because some people may have empty mdadm.conf files
	   (Thanks to John Hallam).
	trac:

	   removing the temporary trac backup directories if they fail
	makecd
	 . updated handler for new toolset (genisoimage and wodim)

version 0.9.5 -- December 2, 2007
    backupninja changes
	 . Fixed checks on configuration files permissions, since the patch
	   applied to fix #370396 broke this, especially for configuration files
	   created with permissions 000 by an older ninjahelper version.
	 . Enhanced portability for other platforms
	 . Added quoting because it was needed to prevent shell expansion, broking the
           toint function sometimes (Closes: Trac#11)
	 . Fixed reportspace option (Closes: Trac#10)
	 . Fixed ldap handler not recognizing database suffix (Closes: Trac#28)
    handler changes
	dup:
	 . Support duplicity >= 0.4.3 invocation syntax (--ssh-command option
	   is not supported anymore) (Closes: #447425)
	 . New tmpdir configuration option, very useful in case duplicity tends
	   to fill up /tmp.
        ldap:
	 . Fixed shell command quoting issues, missing 'then' clauses, cleaned up
	   compress=yes to be less redundant and not create empty uncompressed
	   file (Closes: #394935)

	   instead of on/off
	 . Fixed problem that caused combination of slapcat and compress to not work
	   together (Closes: Trac#29)

        mysql:
	 . Fixed case where odd combination of configuration options caused sqldump
	   backups to get overwritten with an empty file (Closes: #402679)
	 . Added 'nodata' option to enable you to specify tables that you want to omit
	   the data from a backup, but still backup the table structure. This is very
	   useful in cases where tables contain large amounts of cache data. See the
	   example.mysql for options, thanks Daniel Bonniot (Closes: #408829)
	 . Enhance code for selecting databases by asking MySQL not to give us the
	   header (-N), to not draw pretty boxes around the output (-B), send the query
	   via -e instead of a pipe and ensure MySQL listens to -B. Thanks to
	   Matthew Palmer (Closes: #452039).
	pgsql:
	 . Support configuring PGSQLUSER for real, and document it a bit; this
	   broken support actually prevented pgsql handler to work for VServers
	   (Closes: #396578)
	rdiff-backup:
	 . Added cstream support to allow for bandwidth limiting
	 . Handle "keep = yes" to disable old backups removal (Closes: #424633)
	 . Add configuration option to allow you to disable the version check
	   as in some instances this may be an ok scenario (Closes: #424632)
	 . Added local destination support to helper (Closes: Trac#4)
	 . Allow exclude-only configurations (Closes: Trac#21)

	sys:
	 . Fixed typo breaking things for VServers.
	 . Fix bug when vrootdir is on its own partition (Closes: #395928)
	 . Better sfdisk error and output handling: should now properly warn
	   when it does not manage to backup a partition table, and shut up when
	   it succeeds (Closes: #396632)
	 . Added option to not use sfdisk at all, useful for vserver/xen instances
	   that produce warnings about no harddisks found (Closes: #404071)
	 . Fixed example in example.sys to detail the __star__ in partitionsfile and
	   note why its necessary (Closes: #409192)
	 . Force C locale for sfdisk to ensure english words are found in grep
	 . Make directory where output is placed configurable, and create the parent dir
	   if it doesn't exist (Closes: Trac#1)

	   one email. Requires logtail, rsync, configuration of reporthost,
	   reportdirectory and reportuser in backupninja.conf. Configure cron to
	   run once a day, and individual backupninjas not to report by email their
	   status, then enjoy one email report from all hosts, rather than multiple
    fixed 'make install' bug that failed if /etc/backup.d already existed
    changed spaces to tabs in Makefile.am
    updated redhat spec file (thanks Adam Monsen)

	   to not work when run from cron.
	 . Recursively ignore subdirs in /etc/backup.d (Closes: #361102)
	 . Add admingroup option to configuration to allow a group that can
	   read/write configurations (instead of only allowing root). Checks
	   and complains about group-readable files only when the group differs
	   from the one in the configuration file (default is root as before).
	   Thanks to Martin Krafft for the patch (Closes: #370396).
	 . When determining which backup actions to make, find now follows
	   symlinks for $configdirectory
	 . Changed order of -s to mail for compatibility
	 . fixed permission stat call so it uses the --format supported by
	   coreutils (Closes: #382747)

	pgsql:
	 . Fixed inversed vsname emptiness check
	 . Fixed su quote usage to be more posixy
	 . Fixed shell expansion, thanks Thomas Kotzian (Closes: #363297)
	 . postgres user UID is now the one from inside the vserver if necessary
	 . Compress now happens in-line to save some disk space (Closes: #370778)
	 . $PGSQLUSER is used instead of hardcoding user 'postgres' (although this is the default)
	svn:
	 . Fixed inversed vsname emptiness check
	rdiff:
	 . Symlink and globbing support in include/exclude/vsinclude
	   clarification: globbing is fully supported again, whereas no attempt
	   is done to dereference symlinks anymore, due to incompatibilities
	   between various readlink versions in this field.
	 . Removed overzealous vsnames check
	 . Now works if testconnect=no and if $test is not defined.
	 . add $sshoptions config parameter in [dest] section of config so
	   connections to ports other than 22 can be made by adding the
	   following to the top of the handler config:
	   options = --remote-schema 'ssh -p REMOTE-PORT -C %s rdiff-backup
	   --server'
	dup:
	 . Symlink and globbing support in include/exclude/vsinclude
	   clarification: globbing is fully supported again, whereas no attempt
	   is done to dereference symlinks anymore, due to incompatibilities
	   between various readlink versions in this field.
	 . Removed over zealous vsnames check
	 . Does not pretend anymore that duplicity can work without
	   any passphrase
	 . Support duplicity 0.4.2 (with Debian patches applied; upstream's

           sshoptions (Closes: #388543)

	sys:
	 . Many more system checks were added, (thanks to Petr Klíma)

           symlinks for $configdirectory
	 . Stop checking helpers perms: both "make install" and distros packages
	   install them with appropriate permissions, it's overzealous to check
	   this at runtime, and is more complicated to do with current
	   admingroup option.
	dup.helper:
	 . Fix: signing was enabled with symmetric encryption.
    changed cron permissions to 644
    changed /etc/backup.d permissions to 0770 (for admingroup)
    minor documentation fixes
    improved RPM build process allowing 'make rpm-package' and 'make
    srpm-package' targets, also fixes permissions on man directories,
    cleans up RPM-related files during distclean, and adds default
    EDITOR for "autogen.sh -f" if none is set. (thanks Robert Napier)

        slapcat), restart, passwordfile and binddn. Default backup method
        is set to ldapsearch as this is safer

    NOTE: to get the previous default behavior with the ldap handler,
    you must set "method = slapcat". The new default is ldapsearch.
    ******************************************************************
    implemented fix so that the main script will echo fatal errors rather
        than being silent about them, this means an error message every hour

    results of handlers are now read line by line.
    changes to rdiff handler: added "options", and "keep" is
