allows it to connect to WebDAV servers. This internal library is subject to the
same vulnerabilities that were fixed in libneon recently. These updated packages
contain fixes to libneon to correct the several format string vulnerabilities in
it, as well as a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability.
