  [ Thomas Hood ]
  * [a83fce3] Depend on a later version of the initscripts package
  * [cfc8349] Use variable instead of hard-coded path for old run dir
    in maintainer scripts, to help shrink the Ubuntu diff.

  * Update my e-mail address in various places
  * Update debconf template translation:
    * cs.po thanks to Miroslav Kure (Closes: #627440)
  * Remove /etc/resolvconf/update.d/bind (Closes: #608933, #268073).
    Instead of this, the bind9 package should include a hook script
    /etc/resolvconf/update.d/bind9 as has been requested in #483098.
  * Due to changes in Debian infrastructure change debian/control
    fields Vcs-Svn and Vcs-Browser.  Ref:

  [ Thomas Hood ]

resolvconf (1.51) experimental; urgency=low

  [ Thomas Hood ]
    cause the nameserver list to be truncated also after an IPv6
    loopback address. (Closes: #568820)
  * Normalize contents of records -- i.e., strip out comments and
    whitespace and shorten IPv6 nameserver addresses.  This makes
    it easier to implement the change above.
  * Add debian/test-normalization script to test the normalization
  * Update resolvconf/downup-interfaces template again.

resolvconf (1.50) experimental; urgency=low

  [ Thomas Hood ]
  * Also migrate non-symlinked directory /etc/resolvconf/run to
  * Be interested in own trigger and enable updates only when triggered.
    This could eliminate some superfluous updates on installation.
    (Evidence that a package is allowed trigger itself:
  * Add section "Usage information for maintainers" to the README file
    discussing the new trigger.
  * Document the "original" file in resolvconf(8). (Closes: #414692)
  * Improve markup of resolvconf(8).

resolvconf (1.49) experimental; urgency=low

  [ Thomas Hood ]
  * Standardly keep run-time data in /run instead of /lib/init/rw;
    migrate from /lib/init/rw to /run in the postinst. (Closes: #621503).
    Thanks to Roger Leigh for his help.
  * Create run-time data directories in the preinst instead of in the
    postinst. (Closes: #551999, #563386).  (Do this in /run if that is
    already already available, otherwise in /lib/init/rw, otherwise in
    /etc/resolvconf.)  Now when other packages call resolvconf before
    resolvconf's postinst runs, the data are not lost and no error
    message is printed.
  * If someone has run resolvconf while updates were disabled, update
    when updates are enabled.
  * Include the contents of the original resolv.conf file in the
    database until the first reboot after installation.  The old behavior
    was to omit these contents unless link-tail-to-original was
    selected with the result that information was missing from
    resolv.conf until ifdown-ifup cycles.  The new behavior is not
    correct either, since nameserver addresses are not removed when
    corresponding interfaces are deconfigured, but should have less
    unpleasant consequences than the old behavior.
  * Update the debconf template that discusses the problem just described.
    Whereas before it was recommended that the administrator down and up
    network interfaces, it is now recommended that the administrator
    reboot the system.
  * Add da.po. (Closes: #623079)  Thanks to Joe Dalton.
  * Run debconf-updatepo.
  * Add Depends on initscripts >= 2.88dsf-13.3 which enables /run
    in its postinst, ensuring that /run is available to our postinst.
  * Activate the "resolvconf-event" trigger in postinst and in postrm
    in order to induce other packages to take notice of resolvconf
    being installed (configured) or removed.  When triggered and
    resolvconf is installed, interested packages possessing name server
    information should send it to resolvconf.  See README for details.
    (Closes: #567059)
  * Remove /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/resolvconf which is obsolete;
    remove it on purge and declare a Breaks: old versions of dhcp3-client
    which used it. (Closes: #591022).
  * Use dh_installifupdown to install ifupdown hook scripts and,
    consequently, Build-Depend on newer debhelper.
  * Update debian/compat to 8.
  * Bump Standards-Version to
  * Tidy up all maintainer scripts.

  [ Marco Nenciarini ]
  * debian/control: updated Thomas Hood's email address.

resolvconf: name server information handler

 Resolvconf is a framework for keeping up to date the system's
 information about name servers. It sets itself up as the intermediary
 between programs that supply this information (such as ifup and
 ifdown, DHCP clients, the PPP daemon and local name servers) and
 programs that use this information (such as DNS caches and resolver
 This package may require some manual configuration. Please
 read the README file for detailed instructions.
