dpkg-repack 1.44 source package in Ubuntu


dpkg-repack (1.44) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Spelling fixes. Thanks to Josh Soref <email address hidden>.
  * Line-wrap dependency fields.
  * Bump Standard-Version to 4.1.5 (no changed needed).
  * Bump debhelper compatibility to level 10.
  * Use the provided pkgname when calling dpkg commands, instead of partially
    reconstructing it from metadata, as we might end up not matching the same
    arch-qualifying the user specified. Closes: #870724
  * Use Dpkg::IPC instead of qx() or open() subcommand pipe support. This will
    give more accurate error messages and will check all function return codes
  * Namespace debhelper files with package names.
  * Update Vcs URLs to point to the new hosting site.
  * Move author information in man page from a dedicated section into a proper
    copyright and license header.
  * Rewrite man page from groff to POD.
  * Set Rules-Requires-Root to no.

dpkg-repack: Debian package archiving tool

 dpkg-repack creates a .deb file out of a package that has already been
 installed. If any changes have been made to the package while it was
 unpacked (i.e. files in /etc were modified), the new package will inherit
 the changes.
 This utility can make it easy to copy packages from one computer to another,
 or to recreate packages that are installed on your system, but no longer
 available elsewhere, or to store the current state of a package before you
 upgrade it.
