Some of you might have noticed there is a new nagios-plugins version in the row. To support upstream in evaluating bugs and bringing the code to a wider audience, I uploaded the latest development version into Debian unstable.
Since this package version
contrib/ is dropped by upstream. But we stopped shipping the latest plugins of
contrib/ with Debian wheezy. We also removed
perlmods/ from the upstream tarball, as this was never used by our package.
The packaging changes are:
* New upstream git snapshot (b15adb7762) - Adjust debian/copyright * Droped the following upstream integrated patches - 05_fix_gets_undefined_in_iso_c11.dpatch - 10_check_apt_perfdata.dpatch - 11_check_nt_npe.dpatch - 12_check_smtp_double_threshold.dpatch * Fix removing empty /usr/include * Add new check_dbi into nagios-plugins-standard * Remove whois from Recommands, as check_bgpstate is removed * Cleanup debian/rules from unused stuff * Provide information about repackaging - Extend debian/README.source - Add debian/bin/repack.sh * Updating standards version to 3.9.4 (no changes needed) * Add libfreeradius-client-dev to build-deps and remove libradiusclient-ng-dev (Closes: #721621) * Remove traces of contrib/ from debian/copyright * Remove command.cfg from examples in nagios-plugins-common, it was removed upstream
The Debian Nagios Maintainer and Upstream Developer are asking you to try out this new package on non production systems. Not that we think there might be a high risk for damage, but you know .. :) The latest version of the plugins are running on several systems already, but it is nearly impossible to test all scenarios even automated.
If you want to give it a try on Debian wheezy, you could install the packages from our wheezy-backports repository:
# wget "http://ftp.cyconet.org/debian/sources.list.d/wheezy-backports-cyconet.list" \ -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wheezy-backports-cyconet.list # aptitude update # aptitude -t wheezy-backports install nagios-plugins
For adding our archive key, you can just install the package "debian-cyconet-archive-keyring"
