   An update that has 8 recommended fixes can now be installed.


   This update to pure-ftpd documents how pam_umask's
   configuration affects  the FTP server umask settings.
   Additionally, it replaces GPL parts of the  code by those
   released later by upstream under BSD license, resolving a
   licensing issue.

   This update also includes improvements and fixes specific
   to Novell Open  Enterprise Server environments that run
   pure-ftpd (bnc#769694):

   * Wait for nwlogin and nwlogout processes to terminate
   before closing the FTP user session (bnc#693805)
   * Fix timeouts in FTP logins due to LDAP subtree search
   for NCP servers from <ROOT> (bnc#725137)
   * Allow backslash characters ("\") in pathnames
   * Remote server access fails with full domain names
   * DefaultHomeDirectory causes segfault/disconnect upon
   anonymous login attempt (bnc#759995)
   * "remote_server yes" causes error and failure for
   pure-ftpd AltLog (bnc#779657).
