dgit 0.30 source package in Ubuntu


dgit (0.30) unstable; urgency=high


  * Client uses new infrastructure:
    - Check for new dgit git service on dgit-git.debian.net (ie
      gideon.debian.org), with transition plan based on diversion feature.
    - Old versions of dgit will stop working when the server-side handle is

  * dgit git trees no longer contain .pc for format `3.0 (quilt)' source
    packages.  Closes:#764606.
    - It is deleted whenever we find it.
    - Older versions of dgit will choke on trees without .pc.
    - (When doing quilt fixup, we recreate a suitable .pc in a temporary
      directory so that we can do dpkg-source --comit.)

  * All users are urged to upgrade ASAP.

  Other significant improvements:

  * When generating quilt patches, try to linearise the git history into a
    series of individual new patches for debian/patches.  Closes:#770710.

  * When receiving a push with dgit-repos-server, update the server's
    refs/heads/master if we are pushing to what the distro regards as a
    relevant branch, and the push would ff master.  Closes:#728209.

  * For non-Debian distros, distro version release tags contain distro
    name a la DEP-14 (rather than hardcoding `debian/').

  * Set up a merge driver for debian/changelog.  Closes:#769291.

  * --clean=git and --clean=none cause dgit to pass -nc to
    dpkg-buildpackage, suppressing calls to the package's clean target.
    Also, expand the documentation in this area slightly.  Closes:#768590.

  * Provide --clean=git-ff (aka -wgf), which is useful for dgit itself (!)

  Minor improvements:

  * Reduce some noise output and improve the clarity of some messages.
  * Be more careful about tag updates during fetch: only update tags
    referring to uploads to distro we are trying to fetch from.
  * Change realpath dependency to `coreutils (>= 8.23-1~) | realpath'


  * Fix handling of rmadison-based and gitless distros (e.g., Ubuntu).
  * Add missing `gpgv' to test dependencies in debian/tests/control.
  * Strip `-b <branch>' from contents of Vcs-Git header, when setting up
    the vcs-git remote.  Closes:#759374.
  * Do not offer wget as an alternative dependency to curl.  We always
    unconditionally invoke curl and have no code to use wget.
  * Complain about lack of cuddled values for value-taking single-letter
    options, rather than thinking the user meat an empty value.
  * Reject (rather than ignoring) further options merged witth -wn, -wg,
  * Fix inaccurate error message when archive's git hash is not an
    ancestor of git repo's git hash.
  * Detect and bomb out on vendor-specific `3.0 (quilt)' patch series.
  * Fix the rules clean target to remove test results and output.

  Documentation improvements:

  * Break out dgit(7) from dgit(1).
  * Provide example workflow for dgit rpush.  Closes:#763334.
    (Also part of the fix for #768470.)
  * Document that dgit repos are cloneable with git, in dgit(1)
    section MODEL.  [Andreas Barth.]  Closes:#768470.
  * Better documentation for quilt series handling.
  * Document under `dgit push' that it is best to build with dgit too.
  * Other minor clarifications and improvements.

  Behind-the-scenes work:

  * Use ftpmasterapi archive query method.
    (Closes:#727702.  Also partly obsoletes #768470.)
  * New dgit-infrastructure binary package containing dgit-repos-server et
    al.  Client users probably don't want this stuff.  Also, it provides a
    convenient way to publish the dependencies.
  * Many many bugfixes to the server side (dpkg-repos-server et al.).
  * Add :..; prefix to ssh remote commands, for the benefit of future
    forced command wrappers.  Implicitly, this defines a new ssh-based
    command protocol.  Closes:#720174, #720175.
  * Distro access configuration handling changes (should not be noticeable
    to most users).
  * In places, significant restructuring or tidying up.
  * Turn all perl warnings into errors using $SIG{__WARN__}.
