Change logs for migration-assistant source package in Intrepid

  • migration-assistant (0.6.2) intrepid; urgency=low
      * Several fixes from Olivier Blin of Mandriva:
        - Close file descriptors when they're no longer needed.
        - Move a closedir() call, it can free data returned by readdir() too
          early.  It leads to path corruption in some cases.
        - Fix a segfault with files with no extension.
        - Remove a spurious directory creation, with uninitialized name.
        - Fix Windows 2000 migration, by not trying to import music if not
        - Fix detection of Windows-NT-like registry path in ma-search-users, by
          splitting and reusing WINNT code from utils.c
        - Reimplement copy using read/write (like cp) to handle large files,
          since we can't mmap() (twice) large files in memory.
        - fix segfault by zeroing buffers for strcat.
        - Improve WINNT patch to factorize user registry location as well.
        - Vista profile directories support.  Get profiles directory from
          registry for ma-search-items and ma-import as well ("Documents and
          Settings" is not correct in Vista), this also allows us to read the
          user registries.
        - Vista users support.  Filter Public and Default users for Vista (from
          registry keys).  Filter "Default User" key in Vista (it is a junction
          to Default).  Do not segfault if keys are missing.
      * More efficient and less error-prone device substring extraction.
      * Set the locale to C when using expr.

  • migration-assistant (0.6.1) hardy; urgency=low
      * Use + instead of : for a replacement character as it is explicitly
        allowed by debconf policy.
      * Look in .purple for Pidgin settings as well.
