  - return NSS_STATUS_TRYAGAIN on zero-length (but not-NULL) buffer (thanks
    Jakub Hrozek)

* fix a problem in sed logic for commenting out disabled options
  (closes: #689296)

  (the debconf template has been postponed to avoid having to update all
  translations for a relatively minor change)
* 01-use-poll-instead-of-select.patch: use poll() instead of select()
  for checking file descriptor activity to also correctly work if more
  than FD_SETSIZE files are already open (closes: #690319)

24. By Arthur de Jong on 2012-08-31

* fix typo in comment (thanks Caleb Callaway)

  parameter during debconf configuration (LP: #1029062)

23. By Arthur de Jong on 2012-06-29

* New upstream release:
  - documentation improvements
  - fix a problem that causes the PAM module to prompt for a new password
    even though the old one was wrong
  - log successful password change in nslcd

22. By Arthur de Jong on 2012-05-20

* new upstream release:
  - allow the pam_authz_search option to be specified multiple times
  - implement extra range checking of all numeric values
  - make documentation up-to-date
  - compatibility improvements

21. By Arthur de Jong on 2012-05-17

don't clear the tls_reqcert option when using ssl without the
start_tls option or an ldaps:// URL (closes: #672301)

20. By Arthur de Jong on 2012-05-02

switch PAM config back to additional because if shadow information is
provided pam_unix accepts the user and causes pam_ldap to be skipped

19. By Arthur de Jong on 2012-04-27

* new upstream release:
  - fix a problem in the handling of PAM requests in nslcd (closes: #670419)
  - install the ldapns.schema in nslcd docs (closes: #669680)
* use the configuration file contents to determine the authentication
  type, not the debconf database (closes: #670133)
* switch PAM account type to primary because it now does all the
  authorisation checks that pam_unix also does
* drop functionality to check whether shadow information is exposed
  in /etc/nsswitch.conf, it was no longer needed sine 0.8.4
* ensure that /var/run/nslcd is not removed during upgrades

18. By Arthur de Jong on 2012-04-22

* new upstream release:
  - log the first 10 search results in debug mode to make debugging
    easier (patch by Matthijs Kooijman)
  - provide more detailed logging information for LDAP errors, this
    should especially help for TLS related problems (based on a patch by
    Mel Flynn)
  - fix logging of invalid pam_authz_search value (LP: #951343)
  - when doing DNS queries for SRV records recognise default ldap and
    ldaps ports (closes: #661955)
  - make whether or not to do case-sensitive filtering configurable
    (patch by Matthew L. Dailey)
  - document the fact that each thread opens it's own connection (patch
    by Chris Hiestand)
  - some small portability improvements
  - try to prevent some of the Broken pipe messages in nslcd
  - increase buffer used for pam_authz_search as suggested by Chris J Arges
* update the X-Start-Before header in the init script to ensure that nslcd
  is started before the display managers
* update debhelper dependency and remove lintian override
* mark nslcd as multi-arch foreign to allow it to satisfy dependencies
  on any arch
* drop no-symbols-control-file lintian override which is no longer needed
* upgrade to standards-version 3.9.3 (no changes needed)
