Subject: [ANNOUNCE] sdparm 1.09 available

sdparm is a command line utility designed to get and set
SCSI device parameters (cf hdparm for ATA disks). The
parameters are held in mode pages. Apart from SCSI devices
(e.g. disks, tapes and enclosures) sdparm can be used on
any device that uses a SCSI command set. sdparm also can
decode VPD pages including the device identification page.
Commands to start and stop the media; load and unload
removable media and some other housekeeping functions are
supported. sdparm supports both the Linux kernel 2.6 and 3
series with ports to FreeBSD, Solaris, Tru64 and Windows.

The version tracks changes in draft standards from since June 2013.

ChangeLog for sdparm-1.08 [20130606] [svn: r215]

This package may be built to depend on the shared library
produced by the sg3_utils, version 1.40 package (released
20141113). Alternatively this package can be built to
statically include the code it needs from sg3_utils.
