ncbi-entrez-direct (12.0.20190816+ds-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Aaron M. Ucko ]
  * New upstream release.  (Not fully caught up, but uploading anyway to
    address an FTBFS bug that turned up.)
  * debian/control:
    - Build-depend on github-gedex-inflector-dev.
    - Declare a nominal XS-Go-Import-Path to placate dh-golang.
  * debian/examples: Install BioThings support as examples for now: bt-*
    (including one data file currently expected to live alongside scripts)
    and xplore.
  * debian/man/{download-ncbi-data,esample,exclude-uid-lists,index-bioc,j2x,
    pm-collect,xml2tbl}.1: Document new commands.
  * debian/man/{download-{pubmed,sequence},efetch,efilter,esearch,fetch-pubmed,
    transmute,xtract}.1: Update for new release.
  * debian/man/download-sequence.1: Fix copy-and-paste error (wrong name
    left in DESCRIPTION).
  * debian/rules:
    - Belatedly use FIX_PERL_SHEBANG for bin/edirect.
    - Factor out GH and GL macros for and respectively.
    - Factor out a pattern rule for building Go executables (and a
      supporting rule for the gounidecode compatibility symlink).
    - Add $(GH)/gedex/inflector to GOLIBSRC_ (for xtract).
    - Account for new download script download-ncbi-data; as-is scripts
      esample, exclude-uid-lists, index-bioc, pm-collect, and xml2tbl; and Go
      executable j2x (which does not use common.go).
    - Set GOCACHE to avoid needing a writable (or simply existent!) HOME;
      wipe the cache in override_dh_auto_clean.  (Closes: 947995.)
  * .gitignore: Ignore the new go-cache tree.

  [ Andreas Tille ]
  * d/watch: simplify + version=4
  * Standards-Version: 4.5.0 (routine-update)

ncbi-entrez-direct: NCBI Entrez utilities on the command line

 Entrez Direct (EDirect) is an advanced method for accessing NCBI's set
 of interconnected databases (publication, sequence, structure, gene,
 variation, expression, etc.) from a terminal window or script.
 Functions take search terms from command-line arguments. Individual
 operations are combined to build multi-step queries. Record retrieval
 and formatting normally complete the process.
 EDirect also provides an argument-driven function that simplifies the
 extraction of data from document summaries or other results that are
 returned in structured XML format. This can eliminate the need for
 writing custom software to answer ad hoc questions. Queries can move
 seamlessly between EDirect commands and UNIX utilities or scripts to
 perform actions that cannot be accomplished entirely within Entrez.
