[ALERT] Bug in example setup - passwords not removed from /etc/shadow

Message Hello everybody,

since 1.1.13 the FSVS sources included an "example" directory, with some
scripts in int.

I just found out that I forgot to put the correct script in my subversion
source directories; the example script for removing passwords in
/etc/shadow and /etc/gshadow was wrong, and didn't remove them.

Please see here for a quick download of a fixed version:

Please take all necessary steps:
- Install the fixed script;
and either
- change all passwords on your system or, if that's not possible,
- use svndumpfilter to remove old versions of your shadow
  and gshadow files, or,
- if you can restart versioning /etc, remove the repository, re-create it,
  and use "fsvs sync" to tell FSVS that there's nothing stored.

I've put an message on freshmeat, too.

I apologize for the inconvinience.



Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
