Change logs for “debhelper” source package in Hardy

  • debhelper (7.0.13ubuntu1~hardy1) hardy-backports; urgency=low
    
      * Automated backport upload; no source changes.
    
    debhelper (7.0.13ubuntu1) intrepid; urgency=low
    
      * Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes:
        - autoscripts/postinst-scrollkeeper: Do not show scrollkeeper-update
          output.
        - dh_installudev: Use priority 50 by default (instead of z60) and '-'
          separator (instead of '_').
        - dh_installxfonts: Use versioned dependency for xfonts-utils. This should
          be kept until dapper goes out of support, to avoid broken dapper
          backports.
    
    debhelper (7.0.13) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_auto_install: Rather than looking at the number of binary packages
        being acted on, look at the total number of binary packages in the
        source package when deciding whether to install to debian/package or
        debian/tmp. This avoids inconsistencies when building mixed arch all+any
        packages using the binary-indep and binary-arch targets.
        Closes: #487938
    
    debhelper (7.0.12) unstable; urgency=medium
    
      * Correct docs about dh_install and debian/tmp in v7 mode. It first looks in
        the current directory, or whatever is configured with --srcdir. Then it
        always falls back to looking in debian/tmp.
      * Medium urgency to get this doc fix into testing.
    
    debhelper (7.0.11ubuntu1) intrepid; urgency=low
    
      * Merge with Debian unstable. Remaining Ubuntu changes:
        - autoscripts/postinst-scrollkeeper: Do not show scrollkeeper-update
          output.
        - dh_installudev: Use priority 50 by default (instead of z60) and '-'
          separator (instead of '_').
        - dh_installxfonts: Use versioned dependency for xfonts-utils. This should
          be kept until dapper goes out of support, to avoid broken dapper
          backports.
    
    debhelper (7.0.11) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh: Man page fix. Closes: #485116
      * Add stamp files to example rules targets. Closes: #486327
      * Add a build dependency on file. The rules file now runs dh_strip and
        dh_shlibdeps, which both use it. (It could be changed not to, but
        it's good to have it run all the commands as a test.) Closes: #486439
      * Typo fix. Closes: #486464
    
    debhelper (7.0.10) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_compress: Do not compress index.sgml files, as generated by gtk-doc.
        Closes: #484772
    
    debhelper (7.0.9) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * rules.tiny: Typo fix. Closes: #479647
      * dh_installinit: Add --restart-after-upgrade, which avoids stopping a
        daemon in the prerm, and instead restarts it in the postinst, keeping
        its downtime minimal. Since some daemons could break if files are upgraded
        while they're running, it's not the default. It might become the default
        in a future (v8) compatibility level. Closes: #471060
      * dh: fix POD error. Closes: #480191
      * dh: Typo fixes. Closes: #480200
      * dh: Add remove_command to the sequence interface.
      * dh_auto_clean: setup.py clean can create pyc files. Remove. Closes: #481899
    
    debhelper (7.0.8) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh: Add an interface that third-party packages providing debhelper commands
        can use to insert them into a command sequence.
        (See dh(1), "SEQUENCE ADDONS".)
      * dh: --with=foo can be used to include such third-party commands.
        So, for example, --with=cli could add the dh_cli* commands from
        cli-common.
      * Moved python-support special case out of dh and into a python-support
        sequence addon. --with=python-support is enabled by default to avoid
        breaking backwards compatability.
    
    debhelper (7.0.7) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_installxfonts: Fix precidence problem that exposes a new warning
        message in perl 5.10.
    
    debhelper (7.0.6) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_auto_test: Correct Module::Build tests.
    
    debhelper (7.0.5) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Convert copyright file to new format.
      * dh_test*: inhibit logging. Closes: #478958
    
    debhelper (7.0.4) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Fix underescaped $ in Makefile. Closes: #478475
      * dh_auto_test: Run tests for Module::Build packages. (Florian Ragwitz)
    
    debhelper (7.0.3) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh: Fix man page typos. Closes: #477933
      * Add missing $! to error message when the log can't be opened.
      * One problem with the log files is that if dh_clean is not the last command
        run, they will be left behind. This is a particular problem on build
        daemons that use real root. Especially if cdbs is used, since it runs
        dh_listpackages after clean, thereby leaving behind log files that
        only root can touch. Avoid this particular special case by inhibiting
        logging by dh_listpackages.
    
    debhelper (7.0.2) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh: Optimise the case where the binary-arch or binary-indep sequence is
        run and there are no packages of that type.
      * dh_auto_configure: Set PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT when configuring MakeMaker
        packages to avoid interactive prompts.
      * dh_auto_*: Also support packages using Module::Build.
      * dh_auto_*: Fix some calls to setup.py. Now tested and working with
        python packages.
      * dh_install: Find all possible cases of "changelog" and "changes", rather
        than just looking for some predefined common cases.
    
    debhelper (7.0.1) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * I lied, one more v7 change slipped in..
      * dh_installchangelogs: In v7 mode, if no upstream changelog is specified,
        and the package is not native, guess at a few common changelog filenames.
    
    debhelper (7.0.0) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh: New program that runs a series of debhelper commands in a sequence.
        This can be used to construct very short rules files (as short as 3
        lines), while still exposing the full power of debhelper when it's
        needed.
      * dh_auto_configure: New program, automates running ./configure,
        Makefile.PL, and python distutils. Calls them with exactly the same
        options as cdbs does by default, and allows adding/overriding options.
      * dh_auto_build: New program, automates building the package by either
        running make or using setup.py. (Support for cmake and other build systems
        planned but not yet implemented.)
      * dh_auto_test: New program, automates running make test or make check
        if the Makefile has such a target.
      * dh_auto_clean: New program, automates running make clean (or distclean,
        or realclean), or using setup.py to clean up.
      * dh_auto_install: New program, automates running make install, or using
        setup.py to install. Supports the PREFIX=/usr special case needed by
        MakeMaker Makefiles. (Support for cmake and other build systems planned
        but not yet implemented.)
      * New v7 mode, which only has three changes from v6, and is the new
        recommended default, especially when using dh.
      * dh_install: In v7 mode, if --sourcedir is not specified, first look for
        files in debian/tmp, and then will look in the current directory. This
        allows dh_install to interoperate with dh_auto_install without needing any
        special parameters.
      * dh_clean: In v7 mode, read debian/clean and delete all files listed
        therein.
      * dh_clean: In v7 mode, automatically delete *-stamp files.
      * Add a Makefile and simplify this package's own rules file using
        all the new toys.
      * dh_clean: Don't delete core dumps. (Too DWIM, and "core" is not
        necessarily a core dump.) Closes: #477391
      * dh_prep: New program, does the same as dh_clean -k (which will be
        deprecated later).
    
    debhelper (6.0.12) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_icons: Support .xpm format icons. Stop looking for .jpg icons, and
        also, for completeness, support .icon files. This matches the set of
        extensions supported by gtk-update-icon-cache. Closes: #448094
    
    debhelper (6.0.11) unstable; urgency=medium
    
      * dh_installman: man --recode transparently uncompresses compressed
        pages. So when saving the output back, save it to a non-compressed
        filename (and delete the original, compressed file). Closes: #470913
    
    debhelper (6.0.10) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_perl: Remove empty directories created by MakeMaker.
    
    debhelper (6.0.9) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_installman: Don't recode symlinks. Closes: #471196
    
    debhelper (6.0.8) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_installman: Convert all man pages in the build directory to utf-8, not
        just those installed by the program.
    
    debhelper (6.0.7) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_lintian: Finally added this since linda is gone and there's only
        lintian to worry about supporting. Closes: #109642, #166320, #206765
        (Thanks to Steve M. Robbins for the initial implementation.)
    
    debhelper (6.0.6) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_compress: Pass -n to gzip to yeild more reproducible file contents.
        The time stamp information need not be contained in the .gz file since the
        time stamp is preserved when compressing and decompressing. Closes: #467100
      * The order of dependencies generated by debhelper has been completly random
        (hash key order), so sort it. Closes: #468959
    
    debhelper (6.0.5) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_installman: Recode all man pages to utf-8 on installation.
        Closes: #462937 (Colin Watson)
      * Depend on a new enough version of man-db.

  • debhelper (6.0.4ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
    
      * Merge with Debian unstable (LP: #184545). Remaining changes:
        - autoscripts/postinst-scrollkeeper: Do not show scrollkeeper-update
          output.
        - dh_installudev: Use priority 50 by default (instead of z60) and '-'
          separator (instead of '_').
        - dh_installxfonts: Use versioned dependency for xfonts-utils. This should
          be kept until dapper goes out of support, to avoid broken dapper
          backports.
        - dh_python: Add 2.5 as supported Python version. dh_python is generally
          deprecated in favor of dh_py{central,support}, but universe might still
          have some unconverted packages. This should be dropped at some point,
          though.
    
    debhelper (6.0.4) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_strip: Improve the idempotency fix put in for #380314.
      * dh_strip: The -k flag didn't work (--keep did). Fix.
      * dh_shlibdeps: Add emul to exclude list.
    
    debhelper (6.0.3) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_link: -X can be used to avoid it modifying symlinks to be compliant
        with policy. Closes: #461392
      * dh_shlibdeps: Rather than skipping everything in /usr/lib/debug,
        which can include debug libraries that dpkg-shlibdeps should look at,
        only skip the subdirectories of it that contain separate debugging
        symbols. (Hardcoding the names of those directories is not the best
        implementation, but it will do for now.) Closes: #461339
    
    debhelper (6.0.2) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Revert slightly broken refactoring of some exclude code.
        Closes: #460340, #460351
    
    debhelper (6.0.1) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_installdocs/examples: Don't unnecessarily use the exclude code path.
      * dh_install{,docs,examples}: Avoid infinite recursion when told to
        install a directory ending with "/." (slashdot effect?) when exclusion is
        enabled. Emulate the behavior of cp in this case. Closes: #253234
      * dh_install: Fix #459426 here too.
    
    debhelper (6.0.0) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_gencontrol: Stop passing -isp, it's the default now. Closes: #458114
      * dh_shlibdeps: Update documentation for -L and -l. dpkg-shlibdeps is now
        much smarter, and these options are almost never needed. Closes: #459226
      * dh_shlibdeps: If a relative path is specified in -l, don't prepend the pwd
        to it, instead just prepend a slash to make it absolute. dpkg-shlibdeps
        has changed how it used LD_LIBRARY_PATH, so making it point into the
        package build directory won't work.
      * dh_shlibdeps: Change "-L pkg" to cause "-Sdebian/pkg" to be passed to
        dpkg-shlibdeps. The old behavior of passing -L to dpkg-shlibdeps didn't
        affect where it looked for symbols files. Closes: #459224
      * Depend on dpkg-dev 1.14.15, the first to support dpkg-shlibdeps -S.
      * dh_installdocs, dh_installexamples: Support files with spaces in exclude
        mode. Closes: #459426
      * debhelper v6 mode is finalised and is the new recommended compatibility
        level.
    
    debhelper (5.0.63) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_installdocs: Tighten doc-base document id parsing to only accept
        the characters that the doc-base manual allows in the id. Closes: #445541
    
     -- Michael Bienia <email address hidden>   Sat, 26 Jan 2008 14:14:22 +0100
  • debhelper (5.0.62ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
    
      * Merge with Debian unstable. See 5.0.58ubuntu1 for remaining diffs
        (unchanged).
    
    debhelper (5.0.62) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Remove execute bit from desktop files in /usr/share/applications.
        Closes: #452337
      * Fix man page names of translated debhelper(7) man pages.
        Patch from Frédéric Bothamy. Closes: 453051
      * dh_makeshlibs: Use new -I flag to specify symbol files, necessary to
        properly support includes. Closes: #452717
      * Increase dpkg-dev dependency to 1.14.12 to ensure that dh_makeshlibs
        isn't used with an old dpkg-gensymbols that doesn't support -I.
    
     -- Matthias Klose <email address hidden>   Wed, 12 Dec 2007 16:32:43 +0000
  • debhelper (5.0.61ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
    
      * Merge with Debian unstable. See 5.0.58ubuntu1 for remaining diffs
        (unchanged).
    
    debhelper (5.0.61) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Man page fix re v4. Closes: #450608
      * dh_makeshlibs: Support symbols files. Closes: #443978
        Packages using this support should build-depend on dpkg-dev (>= 1.14.8).
        Symbols files can be downloaded from mole:
        http://qa.debian.org/cgi-bin/mole/seedsymbols
    
    debhelper (5.0.60) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Debhelper is now developed in a git repository.
      * Reword paragraph about debian/compress files to perhaps be more clear
        about the debian/compress file. Closes: #448759
      * dh_installdirs(1): Remove unnecessary caveat about slashes.
      * dh_icons: Now that GTK 2.12 has entered testing, use the much simpler to
        call update-icon-caches command. Thanks, Josselin Mouette.

  • debhelper (5.0.59ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
    
      * Merge trigger support from Debian unstable.
    
    debhelper (5.0.59) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_installdeb: Add support for dpkg triggers, by installing
        debian/package.triggers files.
    
     -- Martin Pitt <email address hidden>   Tue, 23 Oct 2007 16:56:09 +0200
  • debhelper (5.0.58ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
    
      * Merge with Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
        - autoscripts/postinst-scrollkeeper: Do not show scrollkeeper-update
          output.
        - dh_installudev: Use priority 50 by default (instead of z60) and '-'

    debhelper (5.0.58) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_clean: append "/" to the temp dir name to avoid removing
        a file with the same name. Closes: #445638
    
    debhelper (5.0.57) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * Add --ignore option. This is intended to ease dealing with upstream
        tarballs that contain debian directories, by allowing debhelper config
        files in those directories to be ignored, since there's generally no
        good way to delete them out of the upstream tarball, and they can easily
        get in the way if upstream is using debian/ differently than the Debian
        maintainer.
    
    debhelper (5.0.56) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_installmodules: Since modutils is gone, stop supporting

    debhelper (5.0.55) unstable; urgency=low
    
      * dh_desktop: Only generate calls to update-desktop-database for desktop
        files with MimeType fields. Patch from Emmet Hikory. Closes: #427831
      * dh_strip: Don't run objcopy if the output file already exists.
        Closes: #380314
      * dh_strip: Check that --dbg-package lists the name of a real package.
