 devscripts (2.10.35~bpo40+1) etch-backports; urgency=low
   * Rebuild for etch-backports.
   * Drop debhelper build-dependency to version 5
   * debuild:
     + Do not automatically preserve the (C, CPP, CXX, LD and F)FLAGS variables
       and the corresponding *FLAGS_APPEND variables, for compatibility with
       etch's dpkg-buildpackage.
     + Remove *FLAGS and *FLAGS_APPEND support from the emulated
   * po4a/po/fr.po: Update debuild(1) translation to remove mention of the
     *FLAGS{,_APPEND} variables.
 devscripts (2.10.35) unstable; urgency=low
   * checkbashisms: Only flag "local x y" and "local foo=bar" when --posix is
     used, as the use of the constructs is likely to become policy compliant
     in the near future (see Policy bug #473019)
   * debcommit: When --diff is used, don't open an editor to confirm commit
   * po4a/po/fr.po: Update French manpage translations; thanks Nicolas FRANCOIS
     (Closes: #491001)
   * who-uploads: Call "gpg --verify" with LC_ALL set to C to ensure that
     the output is in the expected format (Closes: #492474)
 devscripts (2.10.34) unstable; urgency=low
   * checkbashisms:
     + Match the use of "shell echo -n" and "if foo then echo -n"
     + Fix a thinko in the quoted-block detection (thankfully the effects were
       largely benign, unless one was attempting to check libtool...)
     + Fix false positives in the checks for "dirs", "popd", "pushd", "shopt"
       and "ulimit" and the "echo with unsafe backslash", brace expansion and
       invalid function name checks
     + Fix a false-positive in the "source script with arguments check"
     + Fix a false negative in the "function" check (Closes: #490223)
     + Treat """" as "" when removing quotes
     + Catch shell script wrappers which use "foo $0 $@ &\nexec true"
     + Don't treat '. "a b"' as a sourced script being passed arguments
     + Strip leading @s from makefile lines
   * debchange:
     + Also collapse UNRELEASED stanzas when -d is used
     + Fix a typo ("ether") in the manpage; thanks Raphael Geissert
   * debcheckout:
     + Improve git repository handling with --file
     + Fix directory naming when using -f and no explicit destination directory
       was specified
   * uscan:
     + Parse sites which embed newlines inside hrefs (horrible, but works)
     + Always treat patterns referring to FTP sites as case-sensitive rather
       than a confusing (and broken) mixture of case-sensitive and
       case-insensitive matching
     + Correctly match directory names in HTMLised FTP proxy listings; the
       equivalent change for filenames was applied in 2.10.11 (#448636)
 devscripts (2.10.33) unstable; urgency=low
   The "bigger brown paper bag" upload
   * bts, debchange, mass-bug: Revert the changes introduced in #486594.
     "date -R" gives us a locale-independent string, strftime() doesn't.
 devscripts (2.10.32) unstable; urgency=low
   * bts: Fix brown paper bag. When establishing an SMTPS connection, only use
     the hostname, rather than the fully specified "ssmtp://hostname[:port]"
   * chdist: Fix sed expressions in src2bin (Closes: #488422)
 devscripts (2.10.31) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Adam D. Barratt ]
   * bts
     + Replace the use of date -R with strftime(). Thanks Stephen Gran.
     + Allow an SMTP host to be specified as using SMTPS and/or a
       non-standard port number
   * checkbashisms:
     + Add a check for $UID being set to -x
     + Apply a small fix to part of the "quoted block detection"
     + Quote test expressions using qr to allow perl to optionally compile
       or otherwise optimise them. Thanks to Frank Lichtenheld for the idea.
     + Add a --posix option which flags constructs not supported by POSIX but
       permitted by Debian Policy (echo -n, local (with no options or
       assignments) and test / [ using -a or -o )
     + Improve the suggested replacement for $UID and $EUID (Closes: #488190)
   * Debbugs.pm: Move initialisation of the SOAP object in to a common routine
     and set the underlying transport object to honour proxies from the
     environment (Closes: #487592)
   * debchange, nmudiff: Replace calls to date -R with strftime(). Thanks
     Stephen Gran (Closes: #486594)
   * debuild: Update the dpkg-buildpackage emulation to use whitespace as the
     separator in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS as per Debian Policy 3.8.0 and to print a
     warning if an unrecognised option is encountered; based on the
     corresponding patch to Dpkg::BuildOptions
   * debsign: If we don't have permission to create files in the same location
     as the originals, use a temporary location instead (Closes: #487999)
   * licensecheck:
     + Add .cxx and .hxx to the default list of file extensions to check
       (Closes: #487384)
     + Add _MTN (monotone) to the default exclusion expression
   * rc-alert: Allow bugs matching specific sets of tags or applying to
     specific distributions to be included or excluded from the list of
     reported bugs (Closes: #487513)
   * uscan:
     + Add an example of a newer form of watch file syntax for SourceForge
       based projects to the manpage
     + If the site being checked redirects to another with a directory
       structure that does not match the original site, check for download URLs
       that refer to any of the redirected sites, in addition to the original
       site. Based on a patch by Raphael Geissert (Closes: #487436)
   * debian/control
     + Suggest libnet-smtp-ssl-perl (>= 1.01-2) in order to allow bts to
       support SMTPS. The versioned dependency is required in order to ensure
       that a fixed libio-socket-ssl-perl is used.
     + Add libnet-smtp-ssl-perl to the description of bts
   * README: Add libnet-smtp-ssl-perl to the description of bts
   [ James Vega ]
   * Debbugs.pm
     + Actually include the documented 'severity' key for the select
     + Fix some whitespace.
   * who-uploads: Accept -M as a short form for --max-uploads
 devscripts (2.10.30) unstable; urgency=low
   * bts: MIME-encode the Subject: header of the generated mail in case it
     contains any non-ASCII characters (Closes: #486395)
   * checkbashisms:
     + Apply a couple of small fixes to the "quoted block detection" and the
       removal of quoted strings
     + Temporarily disable the $"" and $'' checks as they're very prone to
       false positives
     + Fix typoes in the heredoc and popd checks (Closes: #486159)
     + Fix a couple of small bugs in the "function name containing invalid
       characters" and "read with options other than -r" tests
   * debchange:
     + Don't automatically open an editor when creating a new changelog if

       rather than for each line of each file
     + Disable "makefile mode" after checking a makefile if the next file to
       check isn't a makefile
     + Several enhancements to heredoc detection:
       - Heredoc delimiters may contain "non word" characters if the delimiter
         is quoted. As a side-effect, delimiters which match one of the bashism
         expressions may now be flagged due to the order in which checks are
       - SUS specifies that a heredoc ends on a line consisting solely of a
         delimiter, so we enforce that and also don't check such lines.

       Emulation will still be used if any of the clean, dpkg-source, build,
       binary, dpkg-genchanges or final-clean hooks are defined, as dpkg

     + Add non-maintainer uploads (including security and QA uploads),
       backports and the use of local version strings to the list of
       cases where debchange doesn't have to guess the user's intentions
     + Add an --allow-lower-version option which is similar to
       --force-bad-version but allows a regular expression to be specified
       which the new version must match. Based on a patch by Frank Küster
       (Closes: #381159)

       be XSIisms etc rather than strictly bash-specific features

       disown, builtin, set -[BHT], alias -p, unalias -a, local with
       options or an assigned value and $BASH(_*). Thanks to Raphael
       Geissert for the patch (Closes: #469050)

       also match ${variable}
     + Identify and ignore multi-line quoted text (Closes: #464641)

       than -r. Thanks Luca Capello (Closes: #470696)
     + Add an option to allow flagging of lines which do not contain bashisms
       but which may contain other useful information - for example, checking
       whether $BASH is set before using bashisms or $RANDOM being used as a
       local variable rather than the bash built-in variable (Closes: #470999)

     + Set $SVKDIFF before calling "svk diff" (Closes: #469238)
     + If there are uncommitted changes to the changelog when --release is
       used, use them as the commit message. Otherwise use the message passed
       with --message or "releasing version X.Y" as currently
       (Closes: #470366)
     + Format commit messages in a more useful manner for git and hg. The
       first change found is unfolded and used as the summary line. If more
       than one change was found then an editor is spawned so that the message
       can be fine-tuned if required (Closes: #402531)

     + Allow either package names or filenames to be passed on the

       it's empty (Closes: #470025)

     - debrsign: Warn if you passed a changes file but omitted the remote
     - Update debchange and tagpending for new bts2ldap gateway.
     - Remove ${perl:Depends} from control file, dh_perl is not guessing that
       we do actually need 5.8, and so we end up with a perl (>= 5.8), perl
       dependency, which is wrong.

     we're in debian/ first, to avoid false positives. (Closes: #264310)

       debian/changelog is not writable. (Closes: #235485, #178080)

     - Don't prompt to overwrite the dsc file (ie. may be owned by root,

     - cvs-debrelease: to complete the cvs-* scripts bundle, this one
       replicates the debrelease behaviour
   * bts: remove special tag:<tag> processing, as the BTS understands
     tag:<tag> requests (thanks Colin!)
   * cvs-deb{c,i}: call deb{c,i} directly

                    cvs-buildpackage to use debuild (closes: #36344 at last!)
     - cvs-debi, cvs-debc: wrapper for debi, debc to use in conjunction
                    with cvs-debuild or cvs-buildpackage; function like
                    debi and debc, but are run from the CVS working
                    directory instead (also in #36344)

   * bts: dangerous "no-option" behaviour to cleancache changed
   * bts: completely rewrite the caching system using LWP, based on an idea
     gleaned from the original rc-alert together with knowledge of the BTS
     internals ;-); this does give a couple of minor disadvantages, but
     lots of major advantages too (the code is *much* cleaner now, and we
     only need to store each page once!); there is still a slightly messy
     converter to convert the old cache to the new format, but that shall
     go away soonish (probably after 2-3 months or sarge release, whichever
     is sooner), to be replaced with a simple warning

   * debuild: deprecate -E option (dpkg-buildpackage now uses it); so only
     -e and -r short options are left
   * debuild: deprecate -L/--lintian option for indicating lintian options,
     replace with --lintian-opts
   * debuild: support linda (closes: #178456)

     looking for debian/changelog files; only perform potentially harmful
     actions if the directory name matches the package name (i.e., package

     bug in strace (or perhaps it's in dpkg)

 devscripts (2.5.9) unstable; urgency=low

   * Correct 'eq' -> '-eq' in test command (and it's the third time I've
     made that mistake in as many days...) (closes: #50549)
   * Added a simple debian-test script to check that I get the version
     numbering right....
   * Added build dependecies (which wasn't really that hard...)
   * Correct debdiff problem: forgot to chdir back after looking at first
     changes file

     the responsibility of the test programs themselves to handle choosing
     their userid

     non-US/main/libs or suchlike (really closes: #50281)

   * Small correction to mustsetvar logic in uscan
 devscripts (2.5.0) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add -m option to deb(r)sign to parallel the behaviour of

     given to dpkg-buildpackage when calling debsign (should close #50281),
   * make debsign sign the right .changes file!  (closes: #50134)

     I should have done when correcting bug #43082)

   * Add long options to all programs except for deb(r)sign, as the options
     there match those in dpkg-buildpackage (closes: #41850)

     extensions should be sufficient

     (and why did it change?)
   * Make sure debian/rules clean really does that (error in Makefile.am)

     seeming problems
   * Added a new program: signchanges for signing a .changes/.dsc pair
     without needing any of the rest of the source or binary files to be

   * Corrected missing newline characted in debchange
 devscripts (2.0.0) unstable; urgency=low
   * New maintainer
   * Standards:
   * New version numbering scheme: major.minor.patchlevel
   * Changed the name of build to debuild.  build now just prints an error
     message and will disappear completely in the near future.
   * Correct handling of epochs in debc, debi and release (closes: #29855)
   * Use environment variables EDITOR, then VISUAL, and failing that,
     /usr/bin/editor in accordance with policy 5.3 (except that VISUAL is
     not mentioned there)  (closes: #28605)
   * Many modifications to uscan: it now compares version numbers
     correctly, using a Perl script which works in a similar way to
     dpkg --compare-versions, and it no longer has the extra 0 bug
     (closes: #19235, #19467); it no longer uses ncftp but only ftp
     (closes: #20968)
   * uscan now expects the watch file to explicitly indicate how to deduce
     the version number from the filename, by writing the filename as a
     Perl regular expression and enclosing the version number part in (...)
   * uupdate now allows a version number as an argument after the archive
     filename, allowing it to work in harmony with uscan (closes: #20278)
   * uupdate no longer tries to remove *.orig files, as the only ones which
     are created by GNU patch are those where the patch failed, and we
     probably _want_ to keep those (closes: #25774)
   * build rewritten in Perl (now called debuild); has a nicer handling of
     command line options (can accept a -r option with one of binary etc.,
     and doesn't need an explicit -r option if there are other
     dpkg-buildpackage options)  (closes: #27752)
   * debpkg rewritten in Perl as well
   * This package is now an Architecture: all package as there are no
     binaries left
   * debchange now uses the last distributions mentioned in the changelog
     as the default for the new version (closes: #30204)
   * debchange now uses the environment variables DEBFULLNAME and EMAIL as
     the uploader's details if these are set
   * release has been deprecated in favour of dupload, and now just prints
     a message suggesting the use of dupload instead (Closes: #29826,
   * The debchange command line options have been changed.  debchange no
     longer pays attention to the presence of a RELEASED file.  The -i
     option is for Increasing the Debian release number; the -a option is
     for Appending to the current version, and the -v option specifies a
     specific version number.  One of these is mandatory
   * Debchange now adds new changelog entries to the END of the current
     section, rather than the beginning
   * Improved logic of upgrading the Debian release number in debchange
   * Debchange does not supply a release number if there is an explicit
     version number provided
   * Now debchange works on a version of the changelog in /tmp and only
     overwrites the current changelog if everything is OK; this is much
     safer than the original version.  Also, all system calls have their
     return status checked
   * release and build now print error messages suggesting their
   * debuild now runs lintian by default if it is installed; there is an
     override facility etc., as described in the manpage (Closes: #18254)
   * Added Roderick Schertler's dscverify program to devscripts
   * Rewrote many bits of many man pages
   * debian/rules and Makefile modified to use debhelper
