  • Added the python PMAPI bindings and an initial python client

in pmcollectl. Separate, new package exists for python libs for those platforms that split out packages (rpm, deb).

  • Added a pcp-testsuite package for those platforms that might

want this (rpm, deb again, mainly)

  • Re-introduced the pcp/qa subdirectory in pcp and deprecated

the external pcpqa git tree.

  • Fix potential buffer overflow in pmlogger host name handling.
  • Reworked the configure --prefix handling to be more like the

rest of the open source world.

  • Ensure the __pmDecodeText ident parameter is always set

Resolves Red Hat bugzilla bug #841306.
