Major changes between sudo 1.8.22b1 and 1.8.21p2:

 * Commands run in the background from a script run via sudo will
   no longer receive SIGHUP when the parent exits and I/O logging
   is enabled.  Bug #502

 * A particularly offensive insult is now disabled by default.
   Bug #804

 * The description of "sudo -i" now correctly documents that
   the "env_keep" and "env_check" sudoers options are applied to
   the environment.  Bug #806

 * Fixed a crash when the system's host name is not set.
   Bug #807

 * The sudoers2ldif script now handles #include and #includedir

 * Fixed a bug where sudo would silently exit when the command was
   not allowed by sudoers and the "passwd_tries" sudoers option
   was set to a value less than one.

 * Fixed a bug with the "listpw" and "verifypw" sudoers options and
   multiple sudoers sources.  If the option is set to "all", a
   password should be required unless none of a user's sudoers
   entries from any source require authentication.

 * Fixed a bug with the "listpw" and "verifypw" sudoers options in
   the LDAP and SSSD back-ends.  If the option is set to "any", and
   the entry contained multiple rules, only the first matching rule
   was checked.  If an entry contained more than one matching rule
   and the first rule required authentication but a subsequent rule
   did not, sudo would prompt for a password when it should not have.

 * When running a command as the invoking user (not root), sudo
   would execute the command with the same group vector it was
   started with.  Sudo now executes the command with a new group
   vector based on the group database which is consistent with
   how su(1) operates.

 * Fixed a double free in the SSSD back-end that could occur when
   ipa_hostname is present in sssd.conf and is set to an unqualified
   host name.

 * When I/O logging is enabled, sudo will now write to the terminal
   even when it is a background process.  Previously, sudo would
   only write to the tty when it was the foreground process when
   I/O logging was enabled.  If the TOSTOP terminal flag is set,
   sudo will suspend the command (and then itself) with the SIGTTOU
