bilibop (0.5.5) unstable; urgency=low

  * debian/control:
    - bump debhelper compatibility to 12 (also update debian/compat)
    - add udev in Depends fields to solve lintian warnings
    - bump Standards-Version to 4.3.0 (update debian/rules accordingly)
  * debian/rules:
    - update dh_gencontrol option and argument according to the new behaviour
      of the command
    - add an override for the new dh_installinitramfs, as it duplicates the
      "update-initramfs -u" existing calls and triggers lintian warnings due
      to absolute path in command
    - enable verbose output (a should since Debian Policy 4.2.0)

bilibop (0.5.0) unstable; urgency=medium

  * bilibop-common: add support for overlayfs (in mainline kernel since 3.18).
    Closes: #778497; new funcions in
    - canonpath(): clean field separators in an arbitrary filepath
    - is_overlay_mountpoint(): grep /proc/mounts for 'overlay' filesystem
    - overlay_mountpoints(): doing the same as aufs_mountpoints()
    - overlay_lowerdir(): output the cleaned value of lowerdir= mount option
    - overlay_upperdir(): output the cleaned value of upperdir= mount option
    - overlay_workdir()
    - underlying_device_from_overlayfs(): find the underlying device from the
      'lowerdir' value; fallback to live-boot (5.0~a1-1) usecases.
    Also modify underlying_device_from_file() to call the previous one.
  * bilibop-common: add support for btrfs. A file on a btrfs mountpoint is not
    directly mapped to the underlying block device: 'stat -c %D FILE' shows
    that the file seems to be on some kind of ramfs (major=0). So add two
    functions in
    - is_btrfs_mountpoint()
    - underlying_device_from_btrfs()
    Also modify underlying_device_from_file() to call the previous one.
  * bilibop-common: modify other functions in
    - underlying_device_from_aufs(): do not fail if the underlying device
      contains btrfs; now use aufs_readonly_branch() instead of aufs_dirs(),
      and call underlying_device_from_file() if the major number of the
      underlying device is 0 (be aware of a possible endless loop)
    - aufs_dirs(), aufs_readonly_branch() and aufs_writable_branch(): replace
      occurencies of glob pattern 'br*' by 'br?' to skip brid[01] files
    - underlying_device_from_file(), do not return 1 too early; let the last
      test say if the funcion failed or not
    - underlying_device_from_loop(): for the case the backing file itself is
      on btrfs, aufs or overlay, i.e. call underlying_device_from_file() from
      there too
    - find_mountpoint() and device_id_of_file(): to work around overlayfs
      specific design (files and dirs are not treated the same way)
    - underlying_device(): remove unneeded local variable assignment
  * bilibop-common: update copyright, README section and physical_hard_disk()
    dependency tree in
  * bilibop-common: update README.Debian, bilibop(7) and bilibop.conf(5).

  * bilibop-lockfs: add support for overlayfs.
    - Modify local-bottom/bilibop-lockfs initramfs script: define $METHOD as
      the aufs or overlay module that is supported by the kernel, and use
      its value to setup specific mount options and mount points. Allow one to
      override the default directory name by setting BILIBOP_LOCKFS_PATH_PREFIX
    - Modify initramfs hook (+ manual_add_module overlay)
      Improve the part of the script related to mount commands (mount -t tmpfs,
      mount -o bind, mount -o move, ...). Make sure the paths of the branches
      used to build the union fs will be consistent at runtime (for both
      overlay, and aufs with brs=0), as the only one places to get those paths
      (e.g. mount options field in /proc/mounts) is out of sync.
    - Rewrite lockfs_mount_helper script, according to the initramfs script;
      prepare directory trees and add/modify comments. Change mount order; now
      the tmpfs mountpoint is set BEFORE the readonly branch, the last one
      being, by design (bilibop), a subdirectory of the first one. Introduce
      a new tunable variable BILIBOP_LOCKFS_PATH_SCHEME to choose the
      directory structure of the lower and upper branches.
    - Also modify lockfs-notify accordingly to support overlay filesystem
  * bilibop-lockfs: modify blacklist_bilibop_devices() in Manually
    add lvm-pv-uuid-* symlink to the list, as the udev rules creating it are
    not included into the initramdisk.
  * bilibop-lockfs: update README.Debian and lockfs_mount_helper(8)

  * bilibop-rules: modify initramfs script. The busybox's readlink
    implementation does not work as expected (with -f flag) and does not
    resolve the target of a broken symlink; so replace the readlink call by a
    'ls -l | sed' command.
  * bilibop-rules: modify lsbilibop. Remove '\n' in echo, as it is not
    supported by all shells, and call echo again to print an empty line
    (closes: #772187).
  * bilibop-rules: update lsbilibop(8)

  * bilibop-udev: update README.Debian

  * debian/control: bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes needed).
    Update extended descriptions.
  * debian: modify bilibop-{lockfs,rules}.post{inst,rm}: use 'which' to test
    availability of update-initramfs command instead of testing its full path,
    to avoid a lintian warning.

bilibop (0.4.23) unstable; urgency=high

  * bilibop-lockfs: modify lockfs_mount_helper script: take mount(8) flags
    into account when parsing script arguments provided by parent process;
    this avoids mount failures at boot time or later, when the command is
    invoked with a such flag (closes: #769150).
  * bilibop-rules: add dutch translation for the debconf templates; thanks to
    Frans Spiesschaert <email address hidden> (closes: #766647).

bilibop (0.4.22) unstable; urgency=medium

  * bilibop-common:
    - Fix a bug in device_node_from_major_minor(): don't rely on /dev/block/*
      symlinks, because some of them may not exist at boot time on systems not
      using initramfs (regression in 0.4.20).
    - Update copyright date and owner of the shell library
    - Update TODO list

  * bilibop-lockfs: Fix boot failures
    - Modify set_readonly_lvm_settings(): do not set 'metadata_read_only' to
      '1' in lvm.conf at early boot time (in the initramfs environment), since
      it prohibits execution of commands such as vgchange or lvchange, and
      then forbids activation of Logical Volumes, making the system unbootable
      (with lvm2 > 2.02.98).
    - Modify the initramfs local-bottom script: undo possible readonly
      settings (due to the blind init-top script) before exiting, when
      BILIBOP_LOCKFS is 'false' or undefined: it uses a backup of lvm.conf and
      the new 'undo_readonly_dm_settings()' function.
    - Fix a delimiter conflict of the sed command in unlock_logical_volume()

  * bilibop-rules:
    - Add russian translation for the debconf templates; thanks to Yuri Kozlov
      <email address hidden> (Closes: #756086).
    - In, modify _pvfilter_list_filter_devices() to skip
      lvm-pv-uuid-* symlinks: they are not available before lvm2 initramfs
      script is executed, and a filter based on them may lead the system to
      be unbootable.
    - In, do not initialize 'global_filter' with an empty array,
      which is not supported: modify _pvfilter_init_lvm_configfile() and
      _pvfilter_init_device_filters(). Also fix return value in the last one.
    - Modify make_unpersistent_rules and the initramfs script to create
      /run/udev/rules.d if it does not exist (since it is no more supported by
      last versions of udev)
    - Improve idempotency of make_unpersistent_rules script: do not create
      files or symlinks in /etc if they do not exist, unless the new '-f' or
      '--force' option is used. Also, modify intramfs script to create the
      'persistent' udev rules files in /run only if there are symlinks
      pointing to them in /etc.
    - Modify all helper scripts: do not set +e before parsing options, and
      then call getopt in a 'if..then' block instead.
    - Fix a typo in grub_device_map_manager

  * debian/copyright: update copyright date
  * debian/control:
    - Remove deprecated 'udisks' package from the dependencies of
      bilibop-rules; closes: #750507. Also move 'udisks2' from Recommends to
    - Move down bilibop-rules priority to extra, and remove Conflicts field in
    - Drop dependencies on aufs-tools, pmount and grub-* packages
    - Update bilibop-rules and bilibop-udev extended descriptions

  * debian/bilibop-rules.config:
    - Test if it exists before running an in-package helper script.
    - Skip questions whose answer cannot be treated by the postinst script: if
      udev is not running (or invoke-rc.d fails), exit before questions about
      bilibop_rules_generator and physical_volumes_filter are asked.

  * debian/*
    - Remove unneeded bilibop-*.dirs files
    - Update maintainer scripts (mainly*)

bilibop (0.4.21) unstable; urgency=low

  * bilibop-common: in find_mountpoint(), replace the two piped sed commands

    + spanish: thanks to Camaleón <email address hidden>. Closes: #733867.
    + german: thanks to Chris Leick <email address hidden>. Closes: #738781.
  * Modify debian/*: in sed commands, replace the
    undocumented -E option by the standard -r option.
  * Remove debian/source.lintian-overrides (newer-standards-version 3.9.5):
    after new lintian release (2.5.20), this file is no more needed. This
    reverts commit e32bff8f93a9175900a5c80516e18788abc8704e (2013-11-24).

bilibop (0.4.20) unstable; urgency=low

  * bilibop-common:
  * Modify replace '/sbin/udevadm' by just 'udevadm', and declare a
    udevadm() function if the command itself is not in the PATH. This should
    work with all versions of udev.
  * Modify device_node_from_major_minor(): rely on the contents of /dev/block
    (as these symlinks are not created by udev).
  * Modify add a missing debug command at the beginning of a
  * Modify lib/bilibop/disk: set -e
  * Fix a typo in and the drivemap command: rename function
    _drivemap_max_mp_lenght() -> _drivemap_max_mp_length(), and also fix the
    same spelling error for the variable lenght -> length.
  * Update bilibop(7) and bilibop.conf(5) manpages (and also the french
  * Update documentation (README.Debian, examples/bilibop.conf, misc/*.txt).

  * bilibop-rules:
  * Add translations for the debconf templates:
    + Italian: thanks to Beatrice Torracca <email address hidden>
      Closes: #727755.
    + Portuguese: thanks to Américo Monteiro <email address hidden>
      Closes: #730000.
  * Modify the config maintscript and the initramfs script: as the --run
    option no more works for 'udevadm info', use the hardcoded /run/udev
  * Modify the udev rules file: rely on the 'removable' attribute to know that
    a device is a disk (as for the 'partition' attribute to know that a device
    is a partition); also do not set unconditionally Udisks ENV variables for
    the disk; reorder some rules, rename LABELs, + other cosmetics.
  * Update bilibop_rules_generator helper script for consistency.
  * Fix management of errors in physical_volumes_filter and
  * Remove a reference to a non-existent manpage in
  * Fix a spelling error in the help page of physical_volumes_filter.
  * Modify _pvfilter_find_dev_links(): use a best 'find' commandline, and
    simplify its output filter (grep).
  * Modify postinst to regenerate the cache file if the filter value has been
    modified in lvm.conf
  * Add support for the LVM 'global_filter' variable (lvm2 >= 2.02.98):
    + Add '_pvfilter_has_global()' function in just tests if the
      'global_filter' variable is supported by the version of lvm2 actually
      installed on the system.
    + Modify _pvfilter_init_lvm_configfile().
    + Modify _pvfilter_init_device_filters().
    + Add --global and --noglobal options to the helper script.
    + Rename debconf template: 'bilibop-rules/physical_volumes_filter/warning'
      -> 'bilibop-rules/physical_volumes_filter/without_global_filter/warning'
    + Add 'bilibop-rules/physical_volumes_filter/with_global_filter/warning'
      debconf template.
    + Update maintscripts.
  * Add support for Udisks 2.x (udisks2 package):
    + Modify the udev rules file to set udisks2 variables as well as udisks
    + Update bilibop_rules_generator helper script for consistency.
    + Modify lsbilibop script: grep also udisks2 variables.
  * Replace all occurences of 'eval ${foo}' by [ "${foo}" = "true" ] (as eval
    ${foo} is true if ${foo} is empty).
  * Replace all occurences of '\s' by the POSIX class '[[:blank:]]' in grep
    commands (see bug #729581/#730146).
  * Update lsbilibop(8) manpage (and also the french translation).
  * Update documentation (README.Debian, examples/bilibop.conf).

  * bilibop-lockfs:
  * Add 'random' as a possible value for BILIBOP_LOCKFS_SWAP_POLICY: this
    allows one to specify to use a swap device only if it is encrypted with a
    random key.
    + Add new function is_randomly_encrypted() in
    + Modify get_swap_policy() and apply_swap_policy() in
  * Add a new boot option 'lockfs=default', used to reset bilibop-lockfs
    variables to their default values, i.e. empty strings (but BILIBOP_LOCKFS
    itself, which is then set to 'true'); modify lockfs_mount_helper and the
    initramfs scripts accordingly.
  * Modify lockfs_mount_helper and local-bottom initramfs script to also
    accept boot options of the form 'lockfs=-/foobar', where /foobar is a
    mountpoint to whitelist.
  * Remove unneeded code about 'crypto_LUKS' filesystem types in the mount
    helper script: the mount.crypt command (libpam-mount) already manages
    permissions of children virtual devices (loop and dm) when the 'ro' option
    is encountered in the fstab entry.
  * Add new function get_device_node() in if LABEL=* is used in
    fstab, translate '/' characters to their hex value to be sure to find the
    symlink in /dev/disk/by-label/; modify unlock_logical_volume() and
    is_encrypted() to call it.
  * Add support for LVM 'global_filter' variable in modify
    initialize_lvm_conf() and blacklist_bilibop_devices(); so 'global_filter'
    is unconditionally set to the same value than 'filter'.
  * Modify local-bottom initramfs script: when calling 'is_removable()', don't
    call 'physical_hard_disk()' again, as BILIBOP_DISK has already been
  * Replace all occurences of '\s' by the POSIX class '[[:blank:]]' in grep
  * Update documentation (README.Debian, TODO, examples/bilibop.conf).

  * bilibop-udev:
  * Modify the udev rules file: rely on the 'removable' attribute to know that
    a device is a disk.
  * Replace all occurences of '\s' by the POSIX class '[[:blank:]]' in grep

  * debian/control:
  * Update bilibop-lockfs and bilibop-rules extended descriptions.
  * Move aufs-tools from Recommends: to Suggests: for bilibop-lockfs.
  * Add udisks2 as an alternative to udisks in Recommends: for bilibop-rules.
  * Bump Standards-Version: to 3.9.5; no changes.

  * Update debian/po/templates.pot and debian/po/*.po
  * Add debian/source.lintian-overrides (newer-standards-version 3.9.5), as
    lintian (2.5.19) is not yet updated (see #729096).
  * Add debian/bilibop-rules.lintian-overrides (unused-debconf-template): the
    postinst script embeds the ${HELPER} variable in template names.

bilibop (0.4.19) unstable; urgency=high

  * bilibop-lockfs:
    - Modify parse_and_modify_fstab() in skip 'rbind' mounts as
      well as 'bind' mounts.
    - Modify lockfs_mount_helper script: set -e.
    - Simplify lockfs_mount_helper; especially, rewrite the mount_fallback()
      function to parse the arguments provided by the parent process (mount)
      'as is', and do not 'exec mount', but just 'mount' instead, to be able
      to exit with a code != 0 when mount_fallback() is called.
    - Modify lockfs_mount_helper and the local-bottom initramfs script to
      parse options (BILIBOP_LOCKFS_SIZE and boot commandline) and set the
      size of the tmpfs in a better and more reliable way (use regex instead
      of glob patterns).
    - Add new function 'is_write_protected()' in (takes into account
      sd, mmcblk and mspblk devices) and call it from the local-bottom
      initramfs script.
    - Modify init-top initramfs script: in the case any drive is physically
      locked, override BILIBOP_LOCKFS and BILIBOP_LOCKFS_POLICY.

  * bilibop-rules:
    Fix a bug in lsbilibop: since udev is now a part of systemd, 'udevadm info
    --root' no more works to query the udev_root value; so query it directly
    from udev.conf instead. (Closes: #727682)

    variable. It had been added to work around bug #659814 (dpkg-dev),
    which has been recently fixed.
