Subject: DCC version 1.3.XX/2.3.XX released

Version 1.3.75 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.75 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

It is important to install this version if you installed 1.3.74/2.3.74
and run a DCC server, particularly if your DCC server gets a lot of
traffic.  I should have known that those database size reductions were
too good to be entirely true.  They were only partly true.

The CHANGES file starts with
    Fix false duplicate detection of flooded checksums introduced in
	version 1.3.74.
    Make the rep-total default threshold be 20, matching the documentation.

/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should automagically fetch, build, and
install the commercial or free version, depending on the .updatedcc_pfile
file, unless you have installed a version of Linux with the broken
default `sort` collating sequence since last upgrading.  If so, an
easy way to get the old updatedcc script working is to delete the
entire /var/dcc/build/dcc directory before running updatedcc.
