hostname 3.03ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


hostname (3.03ubuntu1) lucid; urgency=low

  * Merging from Debian Testing, remaining changes:
     - Install Upstart job to set hostname on startup, but do not run it in
     - Build-depend on newer debhelper for Upstart-aware dh_installinit.

hostname (3.03) unstable; urgency=low

  * Do not use buffer on error return. (Closes: #565634) - thanks to
    Marco d'Itri <email address hidden>

hostname (3.02) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Cristian Greco ]
  * bump version to 3.02 for next release.
  * set my new maintainer email address.

  [ Michael Meskes ]
  * Reject invalid hostnames. (LP #52335)
  * Gratiously accept FQ hostnames. While this should not be done
    hostname should still be able to cope with it and print the short
    name as promised in the manpage (LP#389602). (Closes: #563074)
  * Added option to display all ip addresses and all fqdns. (Closes:
    #562830) - thanks to Gábor Gombás <email address hidden>
