rpki-client 6.7p0 released

rpki-client 6.7 has just been released and will be available in the
rpki-client directory of any OpenBSD mirror soon.

rpki-client is a FREE, easy-to-use implementation of the Resource
Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) for Relying Parties (RP) to
facilitate validation of the Route Origin of a BGP announcement. The
program queries the RPKI repository system and outputs Validated ROA
Payloads in the configuration format of OpenBGPD, BIRD, and also as
CSV or JSON objects for consumption by other routing stacks.

See RFC 6811 for a description of how BGP Prefix Origin Validation
secures the Internet's global routing system.

rpki-client was primarily developed by Kristaps Dzonsons, Claudio
Jeker, Job Snijders, and Sebastian Benoit as part of the OpenBSD
Project and gets released as a base component of OpenBSD every six
months, and follows the OpenBSD release numbering scheme.

This is the first release of the 6.7 version. It includes the follwoing
changes to the previous release:

 * Document the suggested interval for running rpki-client in man page.

 * Always initialize cachedir and outputdir.

 * Print statistics as comments at the top of the output files which
   can take comments, including the date and time when the files were
   produced, and runtime statistics when producing them.

 * Improve log messages to clarify what's happening.

 * Fix a bug where rpki-client would not properly wait for exiting
   rsync processes, causing rpki-client to hang.

The mirrors where rpki-client can be found are on
