dpkg 1.18.10ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


dpkg (1.18.10ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * Merge from Debian testing; remaining Ubuntu changes:
    - Change native source version/format mismatch errors into warnings
      until the dust settles on Debian bug 737634 about override options.
    - Add DPKG_UNTRANSLATED_MESSAGES environment check so that higher-level
      tools can get untranslated dpkg terminal log messages while at the
      same time having translated debconf prompts.
    - Special-case arm{el,hf} ELF objects in Shlibs/Objdump.pm for multilib.
    - Map unqualified package names of multiarch-same packages to the native
      arch instead of throwing an error, so that we don't break on upgrade
      when there are unqualified names stored in the dpkg trigger database.
    - Apply a workaround from mvo to consider ^rc packages as multiarch,
      during the dpkg consistency checks. (see LP: 1015567 and 1057367).

dpkg (1.18.10) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Fix a short-lived memory leak in dpkg archive argument parsing.
  * When activating file triggers on conffile purge, use the conffile name
    instead of the real pathname it might refer to. This fixes a segfault
    when using --instdir, or when the conffile has been moved around and
    replaced with a symlink to the target.
    Regression introduced in dpkg 1.18.8. Closes: #830267
  * Perl modules:
    - Disable fixdebugpath feature on unsafe characters in the path.
    - Generate reproducible source tarballs by using the new GNU tar
      --clamp-mtime option in Dpkg::Source::Archive, to make sure no file
      in source packages has an mtime later than the changelog entry time.
    - Enable fixdebugpath build flag feature by default.
      Thanks to Mattia Rizzolo <email address hidden>. Closes: #832179
    - Rename various private methods and functions with an underscore prefix
      and unified names.
    - Refactor perl modules directory list into a new function in Test::Dpkg.
  * Test suite:
    - Add new POD coverage author test for public perl modules.
  * Documentation:
    - Document Testsuite-Triggers in dsc(5).
    - Fix deb-changes(5) description to talk about .changes instead of .dsc.
      Reported by HW42 <email address hidden>.
    - Use debian/control as the SYNOPSIS in deb-src-control(5).
    - Add new deb-conffiles(5) man page.
    - Add references to deb-control(5) and deb-triggers(5) in dpkg(1).
    - Fix typos for repeated “the” word.
      Prompted by Valentin Samir <email address hidden> in #830989.
    - Fix misspelled -fdebug-prefix-map flag in dpkg-buildflags(1).
      Reported by Mattia Rizzolo <email address hidden>.
    - Remove mention of source format 1.0 supporting building with upstream
      tarball signatures from dpkg-source(1), as this was disabled in 1.18.8.
    - Document all public methods in Dpkg::Changelog::Entry::Debian.
    - Escape dashes in deb-changes(5) and dsc(5) man pages.
    - Fix typos in dpkg-shlibdeps(1). Closes: #832434
      Thanks to Carsten Leonhardt <email address hidden>.

  [ Updated programs translations ]
  * German (Sven Joachim).
  * Turkish (Mert Dirik). Closes: #832070

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

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