This is an automated email from the git hooks/post-receive script. It was
generated because a ref change was pushed to the repository containing
the project "conntrack-tools".

The branch, vyatta/expect has been updated
  discards  694c19f8f77438a478beeb9fa1bc79f488ae0436 (commit)
       via  cb4f58ded0eb5338c242d646dbbe0e2f79599171 (commit)

This update added new revisions after undoing existing revisions.  That is
to say, the old revision is not a strict subset of the new revision.  This
situation occurs when you --force push a change and generate a repository
containing something like this:

 * -- * -- B -- O -- O -- O (694c19f8f77438a478beeb9fa1bc79f488ae0436)
             N -- N -- N (cb4f58ded0eb5338c242d646dbbe0e2f79599171)

When this happens we assume that you've already had alert emails for all
of the O revisions, and so we here report only the revisions in the N
branch from the common base, B.

Those revisions listed above that are new to this repository have
not appeared on any other notification email; so we list those
revisions in full, below.

    conntrackd: initial support for expectations (incomplete!)
    This patch adds initial support to synchronize expectations.
    Note that *it is imcomplete*. Currently, it only adds and
    deletes the expectation in the internal cache:
    (term-1)$ sudo modprobe nf_conntrack_ftp
    (term-1)$ nc 21
    USER anonymous
    (Now switch to term-2)
    (term-2)# conntrackd -i exp
    300 proto=6 src= dst= sport=0 dport=52712 [active since 55s]
    You have to enable the expectation support in the configuration
    file with the following option:
    Sync {
    	Options {
    		ExpectationSync On
    Still needs to be implemented:
    - Initial dump of the expect table.
    - The object to message build/parse functions.
    - The direct injection.
    - Commit operation.
    - Flush operation.
    - User-space filtering.
    Among others.
    You'll have to get a fresh working copy of libnetfilter_conntrack,
    otherwise you'll hit one assertion in nfct_cmp().
