[ANNOUNCE] autofs 5.0.5 release

Hi all,

Its been a long time, I know, but finally here is release 5.0.5.
Once again there quite a lot of bug fixes.

Known issues
============

- Quoted strings in the master map are still not yet handled.
- There is a problem with "mount --move" in some releases of SuSE
(perhaps other distributions as well) which can cause mounts to
not be moved correctly resulting in /etc/mtab continually growing
due to invalid entries.
- When the active restart is being used it will happily re-connect a
mount that is unresponsive, perhaps because the server is not
responding. A forced expire (USR1 signal) should be enough to clean
up. However, we have had reports mounts and umounts to down servers
taking quite a while with recent kernels, I'm not sure how this will
end up at this stage so we will need to persevere with this for now.

autofs
======

The package can be found at:

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/daemons/autofs/v5

It is autofs-5.0.5.tar.[gz|bz2]

No source rpm is there as it can be produced by using:

rpmbuild -ts autofs-5.0.5.tar.gz

and the binary rpm by using:

rpmbuild -tb autofs-5.0.5.tar.gz

See the INSTALL file for information about configure options and
kernel requirements.

Here are the entries from the CHANGELOG which outline the updates:
