  • Replace use of fgrep with grep -F (POSIX grep flags preferred by GNU grep) - patch from David Seifert.
  • Added SPDX identifiers to License file(s). Hopefully this will help the various robots out there correctly identify the longstanding licenses for libcap and friends. (Bug: 216609 reported by Günther Noack)
  • Started down the rabbit hole of trying to address (Bug: 216610 reported by Günther Noack on behalf of Michael Stapelberg)
  • The basic issue is how to link C code with Go psx without using CGo. This is all a low level hackery. If you are interested, browse the source.
  • Correct for bad whatis entries in man pages (this was throwing a Debian build test, detail)
  • Also reviewed man pages and addressed cross linkage issues (Bug: 216585)
  • Cleaned up some files (made a github mirror now just so I can automatically render them).
  • Changed meaning of DYNAMIC=no builds.
  • This now builds everything with static linking except for libc. The reason for this exception is explained in the commit message.
  • Inserted demonstration exploit code in to support article.
