runc is a CLI tool for spawning and running containers according to the OCI specification. It is designed to be as minimal as possible, and is the workhorse of Docker. It was originally designed to be a replacement for LXC within Docker, and has grown to become a separate project entirely.

    2017-01-13 - - fix CVE-2016-9962 bsc#1012568 and applying the patch CVE-2016-9962.patch, because 1.12.6 partially fixes it (it contains the first patch attached in bsc#1012568)

    2016-12-19 - - update runc to the version used in docker 1.12.5 (bsc#1016307). This fixes bsc#1015661

    2016-12-19 - - For the moment, we have to switch to using Docker's fork of runC. This *will* be solved properly by creating a new package purely for Docker's runC fork, because it's quite silly to tie OCI project releases to Docker's vendoring scheme. Once this is fixed, this package will be switch to being purely-OCI.

    2016-12-16 - - add the /usr/bin/docker-run symlink to partially fix bsc#1015661

    2016-11-24 - - fix version by adding a revision "counter" so that it will always increase fix bsc#1009961

    2016-10-13 - - update to 02f8fa7 because that is the needed version for docker 1.12.1 (bsc#1004490)

    2016-09-21 - - Run fdupes.

    2016-09-19 - - fix go_arches definition: use global instead of define, otherwise it fails to build

    2016-08-26 - - Remove docker-runc symlink because it's been fixed within the Docker package. bsc#978260

    2016-08-25 - - Create a symlink /usr/sbin/docker-runc -> /usr/sbin/docker Docker expects this symlink to exist bsc#978260
