flashplugin-nonfree source package in Ubuntu


flashplugin-nonfree ( precise; urgency=low

  * Depend on update-notifier-common (>= 0.119ubuntu2) and use a
    package-data-download hook instead of doing the download in the postinst;
    this way, network failures don't cause the package to fail to install
    and we can still let the user know about the failure and deal with it
    out of band.  LP: #876298.
  * Change the package to use dh(1) instead of cdbs, with extreme prejudice.
  * Drop the debconf question asking whether to download; it's not a usefully
    worded question and it's never being shown anyway so is useless for
    purposes of asking users to agree to a license.
  * 'db_text' is not a debconf command, so this question was never being
    shown - the script was only succeeding because of the '|| true'
    afterwards.  Change to db_input...
  * Further cleanup of the debconf .config script.
  * Have flashplugin-downloader depend on ${misc:Depends}; will probably
    never amount to anything, but shuts lintian up.
