devscripts 2.11.3ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


devscripts (2.11.3ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian testing, remaining changes:
    - Demote Recommends to Suggests:
      + libcrypt-ssleay-perl: only needed for a corner case (uscan on SSL
        download sites), wasn't installed by default in previous releases
        either, and seems quite dead upstream; universe only.
      + debian-keyring: not useful enough in Ubuntu; universe only.
      + equivs: too much of a hack to install by default; universe only.
      + libsoap-lite-perl: only needed for one less common command ("select")
        for bts, which isn't useful for Ubuntu itself, and pulls in a lot of
        other universe Perl libraries; universe only.
    - scripts/debchange.{pl,1}:
      + Adjust --security template for Ubuntu.
      + Add -U/--upstream flag that forces original "just increment
        the end" behaviour; Ubuntu is upstream for some pieces of software.
      + Add --distributor= and DEBCHANGE_DISTRIBUTOR to override lsb_release
      + Default to "precise" as distribution.
      + Add "ubuntu1" to version string for new versions, with tweaks for
        special cases.
      + Add -R/--rebuild flag for Ubuntu's no-change rebuilds.
      + Don't use the last distribution in debian/changelog when doing
        "dch -r" on Ubuntu. "Just because it was last uploaded to jaunty
        doesn't mean that's the right thing to do now."
    - Add test/, test/Makefile: debchange test suite.
    - Rename XS-Vcs-* to XS-Debian-Vcs-*.
