Import patches-unapplied version 1:5.3p1-3ubuntu2 to ubuntu/lucid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: c6951bb211b7917ebf7dc75582bb43dd6386e7e5

New changelog entries:
  * Always set child processes' OOM adjustment to 0, since Upstart will have
    set sshd's OOM adjustment on startup and so simply restoring the startup
    value won't work (LP: #293000). Thanks to Karsten Suehring for
  * Limit automatic respawning to 10 times in 5 seconds (thanks to Fumihito
    YOSHIDA for the suggestion; LP: #533352).

Import patches-unapplied version 1:5.3p1-3ubuntu1 to ubuntu/lucid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 400193166240ece3210e4f4481eba7d18eff2f52

New changelog entries:
  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Add support for registering ConsoleKit sessions on login.
    - Drop openssh-blacklist and openssh-blacklist-extra to Suggests; they
      take up a lot of CD space, and I suspect that rolling them out in
      security updates has covered most affected systems now.
    - Convert to Upstart. The init script is still here for the benefit of
      people running sshd in chroots.
    - Install apport hook.

Import patches-unapplied version 1:5.3p1-3 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 5c73c1133547e0bb1fe15b6972ee7c2521b7d04a

New changelog entries:
  * Convert to source format 3.0 (quilt).
  * Update README.source to match, and add a 'quilt-setup' target to
    debian/rules for the benefit of those checking out the package from
    revision control.
  * All patches are now maintained separately and tagged according to DEP-3.
  * Add GSSAPIStoreCredentialsOnRekey to 'sshd -T' configuration dump.
  * Remove documentation of building for Debian 3.0 in README.Debian.
    Support for this was removed in 1:4.7p1-2.
  * Remove obsolete header from README.Debian dating from when people
    expected non-free SSH.
  * Update copyright years for GSSAPI patch.

5c73c11... by Colin Watson on 2010-02-22

Import patches-unapplied version 1:5.3p1-2 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 6db6441d16d53c19c992cc4481fe3acae1de0029

New changelog entries:
  * Link with -Wl,--as-needed (closes: #560155).
  * Install upstream sshd_config as an example (closes: #415008).
  * Use dh_lintian.
  * Honour DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck.

6db6441... by Colin Watson on 2010-01-26

Import patches-unapplied version 1:5.3p1-1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 138030db1fe13718b49b9816d54fef6a749f4b41

New changelog entries:
  * New upstream release.
  * Update to GSSAPI patch from
  * Backport from upstream:
    - Do not fall back to adding keys without contraints (ssh-add -c / -t
      ...) when the agent refuses the constrained add request. This was a
      useful migration measure back in 2002 when constraints were new, but
      just adds risk now (LP: #209447).
  * Drop change from 1:3.8p1-3 to avoid setresuid() and setresgid() system
    calls. This only applied to Linux 2.2, which it's no longer feasible to
    run anyway (see 1:5.2p1-2 changelog).

138030d... by Colin Watson on 2010-01-16

Import patches-unapplied version 1:5.2p1-2 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 7a620d3eadd6c3f5981827aa1ffb59cf3993eac8

New changelog entries:
  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Backport from upstream:
    - After sshd receives a SIGHUP, ignore subsequent HUPs while sshd
      re-execs itself. Prevents two HUPs in quick succession from resulting
      in sshd dying (LP: #497781).
    - Output a debug if we can't open an existing keyfile (LP: #505301).
  * Use host compiler for ssh-askpass-gnome when cross-compiling.
  * Don't run tests when cross-compiling.
  * Drop change from 1:3.6.1p2-5 to disable cmsg_type check for file
    descriptor passing when running on Linux 2.0. The previous stable
    release of Debian dropped support for Linux 2.4, let alone 2.0, so this
    very likely has no remaining users depending on it.
  [ Kees Cook ]
  * Implement DebianBanner server configuration flag that can be set to "no"
    to allow sshd to run without the Debian-specific extra version in the
    initial protocol handshake (closes: #562048).

7a620d3... by Colin Watson on 2010-01-04

Import patches-unapplied version 1:5.2p1-1 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: a8bccd9af574e9cc27b652f37e56fc00d4772065

New changelog entries:
  * New upstream release (closes: #536182). Yes, I know 5.3p1 has been out
    for a while, but there's no GSSAPI patch available for it yet.
    - Change the default cipher order to prefer the AES CTR modes and the
      revised "arcfour256" mode to CBC mode ciphers that are susceptible to
      CPNI-957037 "Plaintext Recovery Attack Against SSH".
    - Add countermeasures to mitigate CPNI-957037-style attacks against the
      SSH protocol's use of CBC-mode ciphers. Upon detection of an invalid
      packet length or Message Authentication Code, ssh/sshd will continue
      reading up to the maximum supported packet length rather than
      immediately terminating the connection. This eliminates most of the
      known differences in behaviour that leaked information about the
      plaintext of injected data which formed the basis of this attack
      (closes: #506115, LP: #379329).
    - ForceCommand directive now accepts commandline arguments for the
      internal-sftp server (closes: #524423, LP: #362511).
    - Add AllowAgentForwarding to available Match keywords list (closes:
    - Make ssh(1) send the correct channel number for
      avoid triggering 'Non-public channel' error messages on sshd(8) in
    - Avoid printing 'Non-public channel' warnings in sshd(8), since the
      ssh(1) has sent incorrect channel numbers since ~2004 (this reverts a
      behaviour introduced in openssh-5.1; closes: #496017).
    - Disable nonfunctional ssh(1) ~C escape handler in multiplex slave
      connections (closes: #507541).
    - Fix "whitepsace" typo in ssh_config(5) (closes: #514313, LP: #303835).
  * Update to GSSAPI patch from
    including cascading credentials support (LP: #416958).
  * Use x11.pc when compiling/linking gnome-ssh-askpass2 (closes: #555951).
  * Moved to bzr.debian.org; add Vcs-Bzr and Vcs-Browser control fields.
  * Add debian/README.source with instructions on bzr handling.
  * Make ChrootDirectory work with SELinux (thanks, Russell Coker; closes:
  * Initialise sc to NULL in ssh_selinux_getctxbyname (thanks, Václav Ovsík;
    closes: #498684).
  * Don't duplicate backslashes when displaying server banner (thanks,
    Michał Górny; closes: #505378, LP: #425346).
  * Use hardening-includes for hardening logic (thanks, Kees Cook; closes:
  * Update OpenSSH FAQ to revision 1.110.
  * Remove ssh/new_config, only needed for direct upgrades from potato which
    are no longer particularly feasible anyway (closes: #420682).
  * Cope with insserv reordering of init script links.
  * Remove init script stop link in rc1, as killprocs handles it already.
  * Adjust short descriptions to avoid relying on previous experience with
    rsh, based on suggestions from Reuben Thomas (closes: #512198).
  * Remove manual page references to login.conf, which aren't applicable on
    non-BSD systems (closes: #154434).
  * Remove/adjust manual page references to BSD-specific /etc/rc (closes:
  * Refer to sshd_config(5) rather than sshd(8) in postinst-written
    /etc/ssh/sshd_config, and add UsePAM commentary from upstream-shipped
    configuration file (closes: #415008, although unfortunately this will
    only be conveniently visible on new installations).
  * Include URL to OpenBSD's ssl(8) in ssh(1), since I don't see a better
    source for the same information among Debian's manual pages (closes:
    #530692, LP: #456660).
