swift 1.4.8-0ubuntu2.5 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

swift (1.4.8-0ubuntu2.5) precise-security; urgency=medium

  [ Marc Deslauriers ]
  * SECURITY UPDATE: metadata constraint bypass via multiple requests
    - debian/patches/CVE-2014-7960.patch: add metadata checks to
      swift/account/server.py, swift/common/constraints.py,
      swift/common/db.py, swift/container/server.py, added tests to
      test/unit/common/test_db.py,
      test/functionalnosetests/test_account.py,
      test/functionalnosetests/test_container.py.
    - CVE-2014-7960

  [ Jamie Strandboge ]
  * debian/patches/CVE-2014-7960.patch:
    - adjust unittests since we use webob.exc and not the newer swob
    - adjust functional tests to properly skip if test environment is not
      specified and to not interfere with other functional tests
  * debian/control: Build-Depends on python-mock

python-swift: distributed virtual object store - Python libraries

 OpenStack Object Storage (code-named Swift) is open source software for
 creating redundant, scalable object storage using clusters of standardized
 servers to store petabytes of accessible data. It is not a file system or
 real-time data storage system, but rather a long-term storage system for a
 more permanent type of static data that can be retrieved, leveraged, and then
 updated if necessary. Primary examples of data that best fit this type of
 storage model are virtual machine images, photo storage, email storage and
 backup archiving. Having no central "brain" or master point of control
 provides greater scalability, redundancy and permanence.
 .
 Objects are written to multiple hardware devices in the data center, with
 the OpenStack software responsible for ensuring data replication and
 integrity across the cluster. Storage clusters can scale horizontally by
 adding new nodes. Should a node fail, OpenStack works to replicate its
 content from other active nodes. Because OpenStack uses software logic to
 ensure data replication and distribution across different devices,
 inexpensive commodity hard drives and servers can be used in lieu of more
 expensive equipment.
 .
 This package provides the Python libraries that actually implement
 everything.
