Subject[ANNOUNCE] autofs 5.0.8 release
Hi all,

Once again this is long overdue so there are many changes.

The kernel patches are not being updated any more because of the
introduction of the vfs-automount changes to the VFS. If there
are needs in this area we will need to discuss how to deal with
them on the mailing list.

Known issues (haven't changed since 5.0.7, still)

- Quoted strings in the master map are still not yet handled.
- When the active restart is being used it will happily re-connect a
mount that is unresponsive, perhaps because the server is not
responding. A forced expire (USR1 signal) should be enough to clean


The package can be found at:

It is autofs-5.0.8.tar.[gz|bz2|xz]

No source rpm is there as it can be produced by using:

rpmbuild -ts autofs-5.0.8.tar.gz

and the binary rpm by using:

rpmbuild -tb autofs-5.0.8.tar.gz

See the INSTALL file for information about configure options and
kernel requirements.

Here are the entries from the CHANGELOG which outline the updates:
