Details

Updated febootstrap packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The febootstrap package is used by libguestfs to build a small appliance.

The febootstrap package has been upgraded to upstream version 3.21, which
provides one bug fix over the previous version.

This update also fixes the following bug:

* Previously, when using febootstrap-supermin-helper with the "-g" option, the
command did not set the supplemental groups properly. As a consequence, some
groups from the user running libguestfs leaked into the appliance build process.
After this update, supplemental groups are set correctly. (BZ#902478)

Users of febootstrap are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
