get_os_version is implemented in a very RH/Fedora specific way.
Ensure that it returns a valid string for SUSE by changing the
default. Also remove the RH specific logic when generating HTML
versions of the SELinux documentation
- Align more with Fedora spec file to get rid of python dependencies
in the core system
- create new python-utils sub-package
- move some tools to devel sub-package
- Cleanup dependencies
- Proper default permissions for newrole (4755)
- Update to version 3.1

as where two hardlinks for the same inode have different contexts.
* `setsebool -V` reports errors from commit phase
* matchpathcon related interfaces are deprecated
* New `restorecon -x` option which prevents it from crossing file system
* boundaries.

- removed /etc/X11/xdm/ since it meanwhile has been
replaced by /usr/share/systemd/kbd-model-map (used by YaST)
- Don't create the compat symlinks in /etc on the fly, track them
properly as %config
- /etc/X11/xdm/scripts/11-ssh-agent
* ssh-askpass now moved to /usr/libexec/ssh (boo#1175991)

- fixes in xdm-tarball.patch
* symlink also $XDMDIR/xinitrc.common in /etc/X11/xinit; it
is still often sourced in old ~/.xinitrc user files ...
- fixes in xdm-tarball.patch
* fixed include path for generic Xresources in xdm's Xresources file
* fixed $XDMDIR in Xsession, so sys.xsession can be found
* sys.xsession: fixed syntax error in code, which reads
additional xdm scripts
* display-manager: also symlink Xstartup and Xreset in
/etc/X11/xdm (needed by lighdm)
- specfile:
* for now use again /etc/pam.d for xdm/xdm-np PAM files instead
of /usr/etc/pam.d (using the latter resulted in
"authentificataion failure" with lightdm)
- reenabled move to /usr/etc/X11/xdm; updated xdm-tarball.patch
(includes changes from xinit-UsrEtcMove.patch) [boo#1176212]
- xinit-UsrEtcMove.patch
* changes needed with xinitrc moving to %{_libexecdir}/xinit and
xinitrc.common moving to /usr/etc/X11/xinit/
- reverted move to /usr/etc/X11/xdm for now due to boo#1176212
- updated xdm-tarball.patch
* adjusted for changes in xmodmap and xinit (boo#1173049)
- xdm-tarball.patch
* /usr/etc changes still needed for xdm.tar.bz2; will need
more changes once xmodmap and xinit files are also moved to
/usr/etc (boo#1173049)
- move /etc/X11/xdm --> /usr/etc/X11/xdm and
/etc/pam.d -> /usr/etc/pam.d; still TODO: adjust scripts in
xdm.tar.bz2 (boo#1173049)
- more cleanup
* no longer support sle12; adjusted xdm.tar.bz2 and
applied xdm-with-update-alternative.patch to this tarball
- cleanup
* get rid of xdm-fallbacks.tar.bz2, which wasn't used any longer
since SUSE 12.1

removed therefore also xdm-consolekit.diff

==== xorg-x11-server ====
Subpackages: xorg-x11-server-Xvfb xorg-x11-server-wayland

- n_xorg-wrapper-anybody.patch
* replace default config /etc/X11/Xwrapper, which allows
anybody to use the wrapper, by a patch for the code, i.e.
[#] rootonly, console, anybody
[#] yes, no, auto
is now the default without any Xwrapper config
(needs_root_rights=auto was already the default before)
- u_xorg-wrapper-Xserver-Options-Whitelist-Filter.patch
* replaced by improved version written by Matthias Gerstner of
our security team
+ simplified the option parsing code a bit
+ changed the "ignore forbidden argument" logic into an "abort
on forbidden argument" logic. This is safer and avoids
surprises on the user's end that could occur if the desired
command line arguments aren't effective but the Xorg server is
still started.
+ tried to adjust to the coding style present in the file
(mostly the function name)
+ added some logic to apply the option filtering only to
non-root users when Xorg is actually started as root. This
should allow for full flexibility if root calls the wrapper or
if the Xorg server only runs with user privileges.
- U_Fix-segfault-on-probing-a-non-PCI-platform-device-on.patch,
* fix Xserver startup on Raspberry Pi 3 (boo#1176203)

- reenabled SUID wrapper for TW (boo#1175867)
- u_xorg-wrapper-Xserver-Options-Whitelist-Filter.patch
* Xserver option whitelist filter (boo#1175867)
