[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: network-manager
Version: 0.6.6-2
Severity: normal
Usertags: fdo-18961

network-manager's D-Bus system.d config should be updated to fix
non-deterministic allow/deny for messages with no interface; the D-Bus
upstream recommendation seems to be that every allow or deny rule with
send_interface="..." should have a suitable send_destination attribute too.

In this case, this would make them redundant with the lines matching
send_destination="...", so they can just be removed (see is the D-Bus bug tracking
this; there have also been discussions on the D-Bus mailing list.

Closes: 509655 510729
 network-manager ( unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release.
     - Update 02-dbus_access_network_manager.patch for the latest upstream
       changes which fixes non-deterministic allow/deny for D-Bus messages with
       no interface. (Closes: #510729)
     - Disable 03-F3507g.patch for now, patch no longer applies and should be
       replaced by ModemManager anyway.
     - Remove 04-ltversioning.patch, merged upstream.
     - Remove 05-dhclient_lease_files.patch, merged upstream.
   * Merge experimental branch into unstable. Remaining changes:
     - Remove 07-domain_search.patch, merged upstream.
     - Remove 08-hal_deprecated_keys.patch, fixed upstream.
     - Remove 09-nm_dbus_get_ap_from_object_path-mem_leak_fix.patch, obsolete.
     - Disable 20-manual_means_always_online.patch, needs to be ported to 0.7.
     - Drop libdbus-glib-1-dev Depends from libnm-util-dev.
   * debian/control
     - Add ${misc:Depends} to all binary packages.
     - Let network-manager depend on dhcp3-client directly, as the dependency
       on dhcdbd has been removed. (Closes: #509655)
     - Wrap Build-Depends.
     - Bump Build-Depends on debhelper to (>= 7).
   * debian/compat
     - Bump debhelper compat level to 7.
   * debian/rules
     - Include before any other files as recommended by the cdbs
   * Update symbols file for libnm-util and libnm-glib due to API additions.
