Debian 1.2.3

Debian 1.2.3 is released and contains eight updated packages.

Here is the entire ChangeLog (debian/stable/ChangeLog on ftp sites),
since I never posted a similiar announce for 1.2.1 and 1.2.2.

--- Debian 1.2.3  Thu, 16 Jan 1997 10:12:39 -0600

cron (3.0pl1-37) stable unstable; urgency=medium
   * Corrected postinst,prerm, and postrm scripts -- Installs and
   removes rc.d links, and re-starts cron after install.
   * More fixes from the BSD crew, sent to me by Marek Michalkiewicz: mostly
   checks for null pointers, but also a few Makefile fixes, and at least
   one potential buffer overrun (but I know of no exploits).
   * Left in suidmanager stuff, but corrected default permission to 4755,
   per Debian standards.
   * Added CHANGES file (as /usr/doc/cron/changelog.upstream.gz) to
   distribution. Added upstream README to distribution.
   * Moved files out of ./debian/extra into ./debian because dpkg-source
   cannot deal with createing directories. Hmmph.
   * Removed filereaper reference from standard.daily

diald (0.14-9) stable unstable; urgency=low
   * Correct diald-deb(8) and /etc/init.d/diald (#6379).
   * /var/lib/diald/ip-{up,down} are now configuration files and they are
     kept between upgrades (#5980 #6184).
   * postinst perfected, diald fifo is g+rw for group dialout (#6183).
   * diald fifo moved to /var/run. This is created/removed by the init

dpkg ( stable unstable; urgency=high
   * Patched lib/vercmp.c to hopefully fix dselect epoch processing
     (Bug#6204), (Bug#4590).
   * Patched scripts/dpkg-buildpackage, scripts/dpkg-genchanges,
     scripts/dpkg-gencontrol for epoch processing, courtesy of Loic Prylli
     <lprylli@graville.fdn.fr> (Bug#6138).
   * Patched dpkg-genchanges to actually honor the -u switch to specify
     directory (Bug#5564).
   * Applied patch to main/archive.c to correct problems setting set[gu]id
     binaries, courtesy of Herbert Xu <herbert@greathan.apana.org.au>
   * Applied patch to dpkg-source to correct debian-only package names,
     courtesy of Guy Maor <maor@ece.utexas.edu> (Bug#5355).

libg++27 ( stable unstable; urgency=low
   * The unstripped shared libs in the -dev package caused problems, so I'm
     removing them again.
   * -5 and later fixes the order of the shared libs and links to them.
     This release is the first without known problems, so
     it should go into stable.

mgetty (1.0.0-1) stable unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream non-beta release. Voice Part removed since
     considered unstable

perl (5.003.07-5) stable unstable; urgency=low
   * Moved config.over.MK to the debian directory so that all the files
     that I add are there.
   * Just ignore the mkdir on /usr/local as the easiest solution to the
     NFS-ro /usr/local problem.  Suggestion by Guy Maor <maor@ece.utexas.edu>.

xfig (3.1.4b-6) stable unstable; urgency=low
   * recompiled to remove the libc5_5.4.17-1 dependancy.
     (now only depends on libc5_5.4.13-1).

zlib (1:1.0.4-5) stable unstable; urgency=low
   * Add epoch, to make dselect happier

   * Change invalid distribution field "frozen" to "stable" in changelog
   * Do not install invalid upstream files INDEX.html and mini/INDEX.html
     as they do not work with the gzip'ed documents, and there is no point
     in patching the html as the most popular webbrowser cannot cope with
     compressed documents anyway (fixes bug #6413)
   * HOWTOs that are new or updated since the last release in December:
     AX25 BootPrompt Commercial Consultants DOStoLinux Distribution

wu-ftpd (2.4-27) stable unstable; urgency=medium
   * patch (security and PORT command)
