ConMan is a serial console management program designed to support a large
number of console devices and simultaneous users.  It supports:
- local serial devices
- remote terminal servers (via the telnet protocol)
- IPMI Serial-Over-LAN (via FreeIPMI)
- Unix domain sockets
- external processes (eg, using Expect for telnet/ssh/ipmi-sol connections)
Its features include:
- logging (and optionally timestamping) console device output to file
- connecting to consoles in monitor (R/O) or interactive (R/W) mode
- allowing clients to share or steal console write privileges
- broadcasting client output to multiple consoles

- Update to conman-0.3.0 (2018-09-15):
* Fixed slow connects to Unix socket consoles triggered from
inotify. (#28,#29).
* Obsoletes: Reset-delay-for-unixsock-connect-from-inotify.patch
2018-09-22 -
- Add Requires(post): %fillup_prereq sed.
2018-08-23 -
- Update to version 0.2.9:

2018-08-23 -
- Replace
Upstream chose to fix bsc#1101647 slightly differently.
2018-07-18 -
- If-connect-fails-let-other-side-accept-connection-and-come-back.patch:
Make sure conmand connects to a newly created UNIX socket with
minimal delay. The implementation uses inotify, however this triggers
when the other side bind()s to the socket, however a connection is
not possible until the other side calls listen().
Thus if the connection fails, reset the poll() timeout to return to
connect() as soon as possible (bsc#1101647).
- Support %license in a backward compatible way.
2018-03-08 -
- Do not look for the ttyS* group - it should be dialout
always (boo#1084571).
- Fix shebang - remove /usr/bin/env.
2018-02-16 -
- Add the conman user to the group of the ttyS* devices
- Only update config file for new user once, save backup
2018-01-10 -
- Fix conman for non-root user:
* create rundir
* create logdir
* set user/group only when set to non-root
* fix rundir and logdir in config file on update (boo#1081217).
2017-11-23 -
- Replace references to /var/adm/fillup-templates with new
%_fillupdir macro (boo#1069468)
2017-10-09 -
- Set usr/group for conman to root/root on SLE12 for backward
