The first release candidate for sudo 1.8.29 is now available. I
don't expect changes other than translation updates before the final
release. Sudo 1.8.29 is primarily a bug fix release.

Major changes between sudo 1.8.29rc1 and 1.8.28:
* The cvtsudoers command will now reject non-LDIF input when converting
from LDIF format to sudoers or JSON formats.
* The new log_allowed and log_denied sudoers settings make it possible
to disable logging and auditing of allowed and/or denied commands.
* The umask is now handled differently on systems with PAM or login.conf.
If the umask is explicitly set in sudoers, that value is used regardless
of what PAM or login.conf may specify. However, if the umask is not
explicitly set in sudoers, PAM or login.conf may now override the default
sudoers umask. Bug #900.
* For "make install", the sudoers file is no longer checked for syntax
errors when DESTDIR is set. The default sudoers file includes the
contents of /etc/sudoers.d which may not be readable as non-root.
* Sudo now sets most resource limits to their maximum value to avoid
problems caused by insufficient resources, such as an inability to
allocate memory or open files and pipes.
* Fixed a regression introduced in sudo 1.8.28 where sudo would refuse
to run if the parent process was not associated with a session.
This was due to sudo passing a session ID of -1 to the plugin.
