Pipeline #170471 passed with stage
in 10 minutes and 58 seconds
dbus 1.12.20 (UNRELEASED)
The temporary nemesis release.
Maybe security fixes:
On Unix, avoid a use-after-free if two usernames have the same
numeric uid. In older versions this could lead to a crash (denial of
service) or other undefined behaviour, possibly including incorrect
authorization decisions if <policy group=...> is used.
Like Unix filesystems, D-Bus' model of identity cannot distinguish
between users of different names with the same numeric uid, so this
configuration is not advisable on systems where D-Bus will be used.
Thanks to Daniel Onaca.

Other fixes:
• On Solaris and its derivatives, if a cmsg header is truncated, ensure
that we do not overrun the buffer used for fd-passing, even if the
kernel tells us to.
