  * Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - Show Ubuntu logo.
    - Allow configs to request the Packages/Sources files are not
      redownloaded (so that we can download once and for all at the start).
    - Add an Ubuntu template.
    - Tolerate templates with buildds or critical_bugs entries that return
      None.
  * Fixes FTBFS (LP: #1515019)

ben (0.7.3) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Port to tyxml 3.5
  * Tell curl to follow HTTP redirects

ben (0.7.2) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Use date from last changelog entry in generated documentation to ensure
    a reproducible build.
  * Use http://httpredir.debian.org/debian as a default Debian mirror.
  * Update instructions in example file (Closes: #797100).
  * Set section to "devel" (Closes: #800390).
  * Drop Benl_arg module and use OCaml's Arg module. This change bumps
    minimal required version for OCaml to 4.01.

ben (0.7.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Paul Wise ]
  * cdn.debian.net has been deprecated, replace it with http.debian.net

  [ Mehdi Dogguy ]
  * Ignore potential errors when deleting lock file
  * Use FileUtil.rm instead of calling /bin/rm
  * Replaces uses of Benl_core.list_iteri with List.iteri, which requires
    OCaml >= 4.0.
  * Call dose-debcheck with --deb-native-arch
  * Make build reproducible (Closes: #792054)
  * Add a note about order of command-line flags in documentation (Closes: #747875)
  * Add Json output format in monitor (Closes: #747883)
  * Drop --text, --xhtml and --color in favor of --output-format|-f

  [ Emilio Pozuelo Monfort ]
  * Fix buildd.debian.org compact links

  [ Simon McVittie ]
  * Add a new Partial category for packages that are both good and bad
    (Closes: #795314).

ben (0.7.0) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Add --no-clean to "ben tracker" to leave unknown generated
    HTML files.
  * "ben tracker" will clean up the HTML directory by default from
    now on.
  * Add ability to read uncompressed files by specifying "plain",
    "no" or "none" as a compression format.
  * Remove --output-type from "ben tracker". Support for other output
    types didn't exist anyway and is not planned.
  * Simplify queries so that processing is, a bit, faster.
  * Make templates directory configurable through BEN_TEMPLATES_DIR
    environment variable.
  * Automatically set correct date and revision when generating refman.
  * Bump magic number to BENA0902 because of change in internal format
    of cache file. This requires regeneration of .cache files.
  * Ben should not define any of the modules exported by its library.
    Update the nodefined-map for Ben accordingly.
  * Add libocamlnet-ocaml-dev to Build-Depends, needed by Ben_monitor
    through usage of Netencoding (Closes: #750327).
  * Using -stdin, ben monitor will read its input file from the
    standard input (Closes: #747887).
  * Document how ben query makes the difference between Packages and
    Sources files (Closes: #747879).
  * Use Arg module to process CLI arguments.
  * Parallelize (using ParMap) ben's processing in all frontends, except
    query.
    - Add libparmap-ocaml-dev to Build-Depends.
  * Use Re.Pcre instead of Pcre in a few places to be able to parallelize
    since this requires serializing a few data structures.
  * Add a collision detector in ben tracker (Closes: #730619).
  * Read and show explanations given by dose-debcheck.
    - Add libextlib-ocaml-dev to Build-Depends.
  * Suppose no ignored architectures when ignored item is missing in
    the configuration file.

Binary packages built by this source

ben: toolbox for Debian maintainers

 This is a collection of useful tools that Debian maintainers can use
 to make their packaging work easier. They all work with regular
 Debian package list files, and should be useful for Debian
 derivatives as well. This package ships a single executable, "ben",
 with the following subcommands:
  * download: download a set of package list files from a mirror
  * monitor: monitor the status of a set of packages across several
    architectures (useful for transitions)
  * query: query packages using their metadata (similar to grep-dctrl,
    but uses a dedicated query language)
  * tracker: frontend to multiple monitors
