dpkg 1.17.9ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

dpkg (1.17.9ubuntu1) utopic; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian unstable, fixing the testsuite's failure to fail.

dpkg (1.17.9) unstable; urgency=high

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Do not allow patch files with C-style encoded filenames. Closes: #746306
    Unconditionally fixes CVE-2014-0471.
  * Switch alternative database backups from xz to gzip. Closes: #746354
  * Do not leak long tar names on bogus or truncated archives.
  * Do not leak the filepackages iterator when a directory is used by other
    packages.
  * Fix short lived memory leaks in «dpkg-split --split».
  * Fix memory leak in unused Keybindings screen in dselect.
  * Do not leak color string on «dselect --color».
  * Fix memory leaks when parsing alternatives.
  * Fix off-by-one stack buffer overrun in start-stop-daemon on GNU/Linux and
    GNU/kFreeBSD if the executable pathname is longer than _POSIX_PATH_MAX.
    Although this should not have security implications as the buffer is
    surrounded by two arrays (so those catch accesses even if the stack
    grows up or down), and we are compiling with -fstack-protector anyway.
  * Mark the command_get_pager() tests on a tty as TODO for now, so that
    we do not get failures on build daemons.
  * Make test suite errors abort the build again. Closes: #746331

  [ Updated scripts translations ]
  * French (Steve Petruzzello). Closes: #746350
  * German (Helge Kreutzmann).

  [ Updated manpages translations ]
  * German (Helge Kreutzmann).
