memcached (1.4.7-0.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * Refresh patches, keep all changed hunks except some changes in
    `01_init_script_additions.patch' untouched.
  * New upstream release. Closes:
    - "FTBFS: memcached.c:1023:16: error: dereferencing type-punned
      pointer will break strict-aliasing rules" (Closes: #618096)
    - "ftbfs with gcc-4.6 -Werror" (Closes: #625397)
    - "FTBFS with libevent 2.0 in experimental" This is actually a duplicate
      of #625397 above (Closes: #632764)
    - Fix "please package new upstream release" (Closes: #641059)
  * Fix "Fix FTBFS on hurd-i386" add proposed patch as
    `03_fix_ftbfs4hurd.patch'. Thanks Svante Signell (Closes: #637695)
  * Fix "initscript on restart ignore $ENABLE_MEMCACHED" Add a sanity check
    to the init script (Closes: #636496)
  * Fix "debian/watch doesn't work" Replace the watch file to match the new
    Google Code layout (taken from the sinntp package) (Closes: #641520)
  * Add `04_fix_double_fork_in_start-memcached.patch'. This patch causes the
    start-memcached script to correctly write its PIDFILE, which, in turn,
    allows the init script correct operations. This also fixes "status
    operation on init.d not working correctly (needs to pass $PIDFILE to
    status_of_proc)", however add the $PIDFILE argument additionally none-
    theless as suggested (Closes: #622281)

memcached: A high-performance memory object caching system

 Danga Interactive developed memcached to enhance the speed of,
 a site which was already doing 20 million+ dynamic page views per day for 1
 million users with a bunch of webservers and a bunch of database servers.
 memcached dropped the database load to almost nothing, yielding faster page
 load times for users, better resource utilization, and faster access to the
 databases on a memcache miss.
 memcached optimizes specific high-load serving applications that are designed
 to take advantage of its versatile no-locking memory access system. Clients
 are available in several different programming languages, to suit the needs
 of the specific application. Traditionally this has been used in mod_perl
 apps to avoid storing large chunks of data in Apache memory, and to share
 this burden across several machines.
