dpkg 1.15.3ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


dpkg (1.15.3ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian (LP: #393280). Remaining changes:
    Ubuntu-specific adjustments (probably):
    - Use i686 for lpia in cputable and triplettable.
    - Hack Dpkg::Arch to return i686 for lpia.
    - Move various Conflicts to Breaks, since upgrades from stable Ubuntu
      releases support Breaks.

    Miscellaneous bug fixes:
    - Avoid duplicate attempts to [f]close in obscure error situations which
      might conceiveably close wrong fds.
    - Revert change to stop outputting a newline after a postinst is run
      (Debian #392317).
    - Use the two-arg form of open in Dpkg::Control so that "-" can be
      passed to parse stdin as a control file (Debian #465340).

    Launchpad integration:
    - Add Launchpad-Bugs-Fixed handling in a few more places.

    Build options:
    - Point to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DistCompilerFlags from
    - Set default LDFLAGS to -Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions. (We've already taken
      this hit in Ubuntu.)
    - Implement handling of hardening-wrapper options via DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.

dpkg (1.15.3) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Unset TAR_OPTIONS when extracting .deb archives.
  * Use default compressor values in dpkg-source from Dpkg::Source::Compressor.
  * Fix dpkg-scanpackages to properly detect spurious overrides.
  * Rewrite dpkg-name in perl.
  * Do not close already closed files in some error conditions in libdpkg.
  * Use the correct units (KiB) in dpkg-split when referring to partsize.
  * Document in dpkg-statoverride(8) that mode needs to be specified in
    octal. Closes: #534551
  * Mark argument names in dpkg-statoverride.1 in italic.
  * Explicitly pass field argument to Dpkg::ErrorHandling::unknown().
  * Move unknown() from Dpkg::ErrorHandling to Dpkg::Fields.

  [ Raphael Hertzog ]
  * Unset TAR_OPTIONS when creating/extracting tar archives for source
    packages. Closes: #530860
  * Add cleanup of all invalid (master) alternatives in preinst script.
    Closes: #530633, #531611, #532739, #521760
  * Let update-alternatives fix a manual alternative with a dangling symlink
    by switching it to automatic mode. Closes: #529999
  * Add missing paragraph separator in dpkg-buildpackage(1). Thanks to Per
    Andersson <email address hidden>. Closes: #532769
  * Fix english mistake (“as you request” → “as you requested”) in several
    places. Thanks to David Stansby for the patch. Closes: #533171
  * Support tags before symbols in symbols file contained in source packages.
    The first two tags are "optional" (use it to not fail if the symbol might
    disappear from the library without breaking the ABI) and "arch" to
    restrict the set of architectures where the symbol is supposed to exist.
    Thanks to Modestas Vainius <email address hidden> for the patch.
    See dpkg-gensymbols(1) for more information. Closes: #521551
  * Do not include #MISSING lines in symbols files integrated in binary
    packages. Closes: #526251
  * Assume an implicit version of "Base" for all unversioned symbols
    that are merged into a SymbolFile. Closes: #533181
  * Add new tag "ignore-blacklist" to force-include symbols which are
    normally blacklisted. This can be useful for libgcc to include symbols
    that the toolchain allows to be shared but that are often static (and
    hence are blacklisted for this reason). Closes: #533642
  * In dpkg-source, explicitly pass --keyring ~/.gnupg/trustedkeys.gpg to
    gpgv as it does not use it if other --keyring parameters are given.
    Closes: #530769
  * In dpkg-vendor, allow to use dashes instead of spaces in vendor
    filenames. Closes: #532222
  * Skip dpkg-genchanges' warning about lower version numbers for backports
    (recognized by ~bpo or ~vola in their version number). Closes: #525115
  * Support all checksum algorithms in dpkg-scanpackages/dpkg-scansources.
    Closes: #533828
  * Fix dependency parsing code in Dpkg::Deps to not accept "foo\nbar"
    even if foo is valid. Closes: #534464
    Thanks to Andrew Sayers for spotting the problem.

  [ Joachim Breitner ]
  * Warn about unused substvars in dpkg-gencontrol. Closes: #532760

  [ Updated dpkg translations ]
  * Catalan (Jordi Mallach). Closes: #532109
  * Czech (Miroslav Kure).
  * German (Sven Joachim). Closes: #534831
  * Simplified Chinese (Deng Xiyue). Closes: #531387
  * Swedish (Peter Krefting).

  [ Updated dselect translations ]
  * Czech (Miroslav Kure).

  [ Updated man page translations ]
  * German (Helge Kreutzmann).
  * Swedish (Peter Krefting).

  [ Updated scripts translations ]
  * German (Helge Kreutzmann).
  * Swedish (Peter Krefting).
