Request for pure-ftpd package update to 1.0.36

Hi guys,

I'd like to request an updated version of pure-ftpd be added to EPEL at
least for el6. The EPEL version is 1.0.30, there was a CVE fixed in 1.0.32
and numerous improvements up to the latest 1.0.36. The most interesting
update is adding an allowed cipher list which lets us disable weak ciphers
to conform to PCI and other security standards.

As far as I can tell, there has been no incompatible changes and I don't
believe any package depends on this one.

I'm not sure what the proper process for this is. I've attached an updated
SPEC file which builds and tests fine and we have been using it in
production for months with no issues.

Thanks guys! Love you what's being done here and want to contribute.
