dgit 3.0 source package in Ubuntu


dgit (3.0) unstable; urgency=medium

  Protocol change:
  * Dgit: field now records the nominal distro name, and a hint
    for a tag and url where the git objects (including any rewrite
    map) can be fetched.
  * Use this information, where provided.  Closes:#850431.

  * dgit config handling: Honour command-line and context-provided
    suite and distro more reliably and consistently.
  * Parsing of extended Dgit fields by import-dsc was broken;
    and is now fixed even for more-extended ones.
  * dgit clone-dgit-repos-server uses readonly access.
  * fetch and pull ignore the changelog suite when it is UNRELEASED.
  * dgit-badcommit-fixup: Do not investigate symrefs.  Closes:#850547.

  Minor new feature:
  * distro alias facility in config space.  (Primarily for testing.)
  * Undocumented --config-lookup-explode= feature.  (For testing.)
  * Provide `dgit print-dgit-repos-server-source-url'.  Re:#850521.
  * Honour dgit-distro.*.default-suite and dgit.default.default-suite.

  Other improvements:
  * Improve debugging output a bit.
  * Use refs/dgit-fetch/DISTRO rather than refs/dgit-fetch/DISTRO,
    which leads to less duplication and so less clutter.
  * Enforce a reasonable syntax for nominal distro names.
  * When generating orig+debian/patches view, copy debian/ from
    HEAD.  This makes less noise in diffs.  Closes:#850095.

  Docuentation [Sean Whitton and Ian Jackson]:
  * dgit-sponsorship(7): Use --no-dep14tag.  Closes:#849105.
  * dgit-maint-merge(7): Use debian/source/patch-header.  Closes:849120.
  * dgit(7): Updated `trouble' section to suggest having dpkg-source
    delete the autotools output (with a patch if necessary).
  * dgit(1): Several minor updates and fixes.  Closes:#850519.

  Test suite:
  * Internal improvements.
  * badcommit-rewrite: Fix operation using installed version of fixup.
  * Arrange to pass --debug-quick-random to gpg-agent.
  * Strip block count out of find -ls output - it is unstable!
  * gbp-orig: Add a missing -m, without which git would run an
    editor if stdout was a tty (!)
  * Add t-stunt-parsechangelog to a few tests which were missing it.
  * Tests for the new protocol feature.
  * Fail tests if we look up any configuration relating to Debian.
