Comment 85 for bug 1273484

Monitoring Plugins upstream has applied lots of patches. That affects the fedora specific patches:

* monitoring-plugins-0002-Remove-assignment-of-not-parsed-to-jitter.patch becomes obsolete with the removal of check_ntp.pl in https://github.com/monitoring-plugins/monitoring-plugins/commit/43fbde678c608c2d44d9ebd98a710e63d9300f06

* monitoring-plugins-0007-Fix-the-use-lib-statement-and-the-external-ntp-comma.patch is obsolete as the 2 patched variables were used by the now removed check_ntp.pl in https://github.com/monitoring-plugins/monitoring-plugins/commit/43fbde678c608c2d44d9ebd98a710e63d9300f06

* monitoring-plugins-0010-fix-smart-attribute-comparison.patch can be dropped. That's fixed in https://github.com/monitoring-plugins/monitoring-plugins/commit/c4a99b023d03326ad49e03c8731eec19d19a75bf

In terms of packages

* monitoring-plugins-ntp-perl is no more. check_ntp.pl was removed upstream.

I've rebased my rpm build repo towards 1.6 and verified everything working including additional rpm fixes (check the spec %changelog).

Thomas is looking at the check_swap issue later in order to remove another patch. The ugly subst patch could possibly be solved by moving the file generation into autotools.

@Sam
That should help the preparation of your 'monitoring-plugins' package for review. The fedora specific patch count is now down to 3.
