dlocate 1.08 source package in Ubuntu


dlocate (1.08) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Closes: #601394 For --md5check: if any files have been diverted, list them with 'dpkg-divert --list' and perform an md5sum check on the diverted files.
  * Closes: #829473 Cron.daily only runs /usr/sbin/update-dlocatedb if it exists and is executable
  * Closes: #875773 Better multi-arch support for .list, .conffiles, and .md5sums files
  * Closes: #903773 Can not reproduce
  * Closes: #912850 Removed completions, so bash-completions package can take them over
  * Closes: #867735 dlocate no longer handles its own completions file
  * Closes: #919122 Removed some extra blank lines from error msg output
  * Closes: #965492 updated debhelper compat level to >= 13
  * Closes: #843115, #874062 clarified help message for --filenames-only, --package-only
  * Changed dpkg-hold, dpkg-unhold, dpkg-purge to be wrappers around apt-mark
  * Modified updatedb to use output of 'dpkg-divert --list \*'
  * Got tired of forgetting to update the VERSION_BANNER in dlocate, so made it use $(dpkg-query -W -f '${version}' dlocate)
  * Deleted test.output file and check-version-banner.sh, not needed anymore
  * Fixed off-by-one fmt bug in -l output
  * Added -C, --colour option for -l and -s (requires supercat package)
    default colours can be changed by copying spcrc-dpkg-l and spcrc-package
    from /usr/share/dlocate to ~/.spc/ and editing.
  * dlocate now also looks in ./ for supercat colourisation files
  * update-dlocatedb now uses /usr/share/dlocate/update-dpkg-list
  * update-dpkg-list outputs details for all known packages, not just installed packages
  * Minor packaging fixes to keep lintian happy

dlocate: fast alternative to dpkg -L and dpkg -S

 Uses GNU grep and text dumps of dpkg's data to greatly speed up finding
 out which package a file belongs to (i.e. a very fast dpkg -S). Many
 other uses, including options to view all files in a package, calculate
 disk space used, view and check md5sums, list man pages, etc.
