base-files (9.4) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Fix two install_from_default() calls in postinst that were still
    using the old calling convention, making debootstrap to fail.
    Thanks to Steven Shiau for the report. Closes: #795952

9.3
Superseded in sid-release on 2015-08-18
base-files (9.3) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Change /usr/share/base-files/dot.profile (the default /root/.profile)
    to not fail with new mesg behaviour in stretch. Closes: #794727.
  * Add extra code in postinst so that people who never modified
    their /root/.profile from jessie get the fixed version. This is
    done by the update_to_current_default() function, which is now
    more general and allows updating files not in /etc.
  * While we are at it, modify install_from_default() function so that
    it's called in the same simplified way as update_to_current_default().

    as those are the preferred URLs now.

base-files (8) unstable; urgency=low


  * Release for jessie as stable:
  - Use "8" as version in /etc/issue and /etc/issue.net. As usual, this
    is never expected to change once that jessie is released as Debian 8.
  - Use 8.0 as version in /etc/debian_version. As usual, this is expected
    to change at every point release.
  - Changed PRETTY_NAME in /usr/lib/os-release, adding 8 as version number
    and "(jessie)" as codename. Added also VERSION_ID and VERSION.
    This file, /usr/lib/os-release, is not expected to change either.
  - Updated README (jessie -> stretch).
  * Packages are not expected to rely on the contents of any of these
    files, but if they do, they might better break now while we can still
    fix them.

base-files (7.10) unstable; urgency=low


  * Dropped "chown root:root" lines in postinst, as they are
    completely redundant. The postinst script is run by root.
    This might also help as a workaround for Bug#766459.

7.9
Superseded in sid-release on 2014-10-27
base-files (7.9) unstable; urgency=low


  * The change introduced in version 7.7 regarding /mnt seems to break
    the ability of debootstrap currently in wheezy to create a sid chroot.
    The case of initial install of /mnt is already handled by postinst line
    "install_directory mnt 755 root" inside the big "if" block that
    creates a bunch of other things, so we can restrict re-creating the /mnt
    directory on upgrades to the case when we are really upgrading.
    Therefore, the code is moved to the same "if" block where /etc/profile
    and /etc/nsswitch.conf are upgraded to their new defaults when unchanged.
    This might help as a workaround for Bug#766459.

7.8
Superseded in sid-release on 2014-10-27
base-files (7.8) unstable; urgency=low


  * The /etc/profile.d mechanism may be used to override PS1 setting
    in /etc/bash.bashrc, which is particularly nice because there is
    no need to modify /etc/profile or /etc/bash.bashrc for that,
    but this is no longer possible if /etc/profile.d is sourced
    before /etc/bash.bashrc. Therefore, /etc/profile.d is sourced
    after /etc/bash.bashrc again. Closes: #766351.

7.7
Superseded in sid-release on 2014-10-23
base-files (7.7) unstable; urgency=low


  * Updated FAQ to explain that only /etc/debian_version is updated at
    every point release, using Debian 8.x as an example, to be read by
    users of jessie during its lifetime as stable. Closes: #621757.
  * Changed default /etc/profile to source /etc/bash.bashrc after
    processing profile.d stuff, not before. Closes: #698479.
  * Drop comment lines about umask in /etc/profile, as it has been
    there for enough time for everybody to take note.
  * The directory /mnt is not included inside base-files.deb anymore.
    Instead, it is created by postinst the very first time base-files
    is installed (by debootstrap), or when upgrading from an earlier
    base-files version. This should make the usual upgrade at every point
    release to work even if /mnt is a stale mount point. Closes: #763405.

base-files (7.6) unstable; urgency=low


  * By default, when the computer is booting, green and red colors are used
    to signal that a service started successfully, or that it did not.
    In this context, trying to use colors for something else might be
    misleading or even confusing. For this reason, I'm dropping
    ANSI_COLOR from /usr/lib/os-release. Closes: #758246.
  * Clarified in the copyright file that the Artistic License currently
    in common-licenses is actually the one coming from Perl. Closes: #764553.

base-files (7.5) unstable; urgency=medium


  * Made /etc/os-release symlink to be relative, as an absolute symlink
    seems to break boot when using a dracut initrd. Thanks to Daniel Schaal
    for the report. Closes: #755394.

  * Updated FAQ to match current policy wording about common-licenses.
    Thanks to Gioele Barabucci for the report. Closes: #723195.
  * Moved /etc/os-release to /usr/lib/os-release. Put a symlink pointing to
    the new place. Thanks to Marco d'Itri for the report. Closes: #753658.
  * Changed BUG_REPORT_URL in os-release to https, as the BTS has moved.
    Thanks to Martin Zobel-Helas for the report. Closes: #754455.

  * Update /etc/nsswitch.conf if not modified by the user. Closes: #716786.
  * Added nsswitch.conf.md5sums which works exactly like profile.md5sums.
  * Changed debian/check-etc-profile-md5sum to debian/check-md5sum-etc.
    This is now used twice in debian/rules, for profile and nsswitch.conf.
  * Build package with -Zgzip to ease bootstrapping. Closes: #740278.
  * Reformat paragraph in previous changelog to avoid too long lines.
  * Added build-arch and build-indep targets to debian/rules.
  * Standards-Version: 3.9.5 (no special changes for this).

    as wheezy is Debian 7, the point releases are 7.x, and we
    don't want to modify those files at every point release.

base-files (6.10) unstable; urgency=low


  * Record md5sums of unmodified /etc/profile versions so that we can
    upgrade it automatically, as it's done in Ubuntu.
  * In the initial install, create /etc/motd.tail instead of /etc/motd,
    as /etc/motd is converted to a symlink by initscripts and /etc/motd.tail
    is since a long time the master copy to which the output of uname is added.
    Remove postinst code which tries to update /etc/motd, as it does no longer
    work and the file has not changed in a lot of time. Will add code to
    update /etc/motd.tail based on md5sum if it ever changes in a future.
  * Implement proposed transition plan for group staff in /usr/local.
    The file /etc/staff-group-for-usr-local is now created on upgrades
    from releases before 6.10 and (for now) also on initial install.
  * Removed reference to /etc/nsswitch.conf in extended description, as
    the file is being moved to libc-bin.

6.8

base-files (6.8) unstable; urgency=low


  * Added /etc/os-release. Closes: #659853. Note: for stable releases
    this file will look like it's suggested in the bug report above.
    Also, like /etc/debian_version, this file should only be considered
    meaningful for stable releases, which testing and unstable are not.
  * By popular demand, make /etc/profile a conffile. Closes: #668871.
  * Added /sys for all systems but the Hurd. Closes: #670091.
  * Added /proc for the Hurd, as it's already being used.

  * Switch to "files" instead of "compat" in default /etc/nsswitch.conf.
    That was only useful for libc5. The new default will only take
    effect for new installs. Thanks to Roger Leigh. Closes: #651356.
  * Reword the very first question in base-files FAQ. Closes: #622200.
  * When migrating /var/run and /var/lock, create relative symlinks
    instead of absolute ones. Useful for chroots. Closes: #652301.

  * Added /run. Closes: #620157.  * On new installs:    - Create /run/lock (debian-installer will remove it but this will    ensure that it exists even on chroot environments).    - Symlink /var/run to /run.    - Symlink /var/lock to /run/lock.  * On upgraded systems, initscripts will handle the transition to /run.  * Added "Breaks: initscripts << (2.88dsf-13.3)" to ensure that initscripts    is upgraded first, as otherwise udev would break.  * Thanks a lot to Roger Leigh. -- Santiago Vila <email address hidden>  Fri, 27 May 2011 14:25:42 +0200

  * Changed postinst to not reset /var/run/utmp permissions on every upgrade.
    It is definitely not base-files business to change the permissions of
    an already existing /var/run/utmp, as the system admin might have
    changed them on purpose after the file was created. Closes: #601746.
