store /etc in git, mercurial, bzr or darcs
The etckeeper program is a tool to let /etc be stored in a git, mercurial,
bzr or darcs repository. It hooks into APT to automatically commit changes
made to /etc during package upgrades. It tracks file metadata that version
control systems do not normally support, but that is important for /etc, such
as the permissions of /etc/shadow. It's quite modular and configurable, while
also being simple to use if you understand the basics of working with version
Changes: etckeeper (0.43~bpo50+1) lenny-backports; urgency=low
* Backported with no changes.
etckeeper (0.43) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix cleanup of /var/cache/etckeeper/packagelist.pre-install after
an upgrade where no conffiles are changed.
* Prevent cron job autocommit from happening if pre-install file
is present, to avoid committing state in the middle of an apt run.
* Add /etc/webmin/webmin/oscache to ignore list. Closes: #567255
* Check owner of tty to determine who has su'd to root when committing,
based on a patch by Jakov Sosic.
* Add apparmor.d/cache/ to default ignores.
* Record real committer username in the darcs log, so that the man page
can say that for every VCS the username is recorded.
etckeeper (0.42) unstable; urgency=low
* Deal with removal of the cache directory. Closes: #559418

* Add runit and daemontools supervise files to ignore list.
etckeeper (0.41) unstable; urgency=low
* Change etckeeper uninit to not remove .gitignore (etc) file
if it lacks the "managed by etckeeper" comment. Closes: #545137
* Fix hgrc setup code to not warn if the hgrc already contains
a call to etckeeper. (Thanks, Jakov Sosic)

* Add Spanish debconf translation. Closes: #539589
* Updated Italian debconf translation. Closes: #540516
* Avoid infinite loop when displaying message about failure

etckeeper (0.39) unstable; urgency=low
* Document ETCKEEPER_CONF_DIR in man page.
* Typo. Closes: #536799
* bzr: Set author to root when committing via sudo. Committer
will be the sudo user, as it is in git.
etckeeper (0.38) unstable; urgency=low
* Use hostname if hostname -f fails. Closes: #533295
* Automatically commit on initial install, so users can
begin relying on etckeeper right away. Closes: #533290
etckeeper (0.37) unstable; urgency=low
* Make postinst check for the configured VCS before trying to run
etckeeper init. Closes: #530497
* Update French debconf translation. Closes: #530795
* Fix typo in cruft file. Closes: #530819

etckeeper (0.35) unstable; urgency=low
* Make etckeeper uninit -f disable the prompt.
* Uninit on purge, guarded by a debconf prompt. Closes: #527218
etckeeper (0.34) unstable; urgency=low

* README: Typo. Closes: #517914
etckeeper (0.33) unstable; urgency=low
* Add support for yum. Thanks, Jimmy Tang.
etckeeper (0.32) unstable; urgency=low
* Add uninit subcommand, which cleans up all etckeeper and VCS droppings
in /etc. This is useful if you want to switch to a different VCS and
don't have any history to preserve. (Preserving history and converting
is of course possible, but significantly harder.)
* Run etckeeper init on initial install. Closes: #505772
(The idea being that if someone doesn't want to use git, they can
immediatly uninit to easily reverse this.)
* Document how to change the VCS used by etckeeper, without preserving
any history. Preserving history left as an exersise for the reader.
* Implement list-installed for rpm.
* Added a spec file contributed by Jimmy Tang.
etckeeper (0.31) unstable; urgency=low
* Avoid relying on USER being set, won't be for cron job.
* Add .sw? to ignores. vim uses that if editing an
unspecified file name. Closes: #515628
etckeeper (0.30) unstable; urgency=low
* Add vim .*.sw? files to default ignores.
* Also add emacs #*# autosave files to default ignores.
* And DEADJOE files, for good measure.
* etckeeper update-ignore will automatically update the VCS ignore
file, only touching the part inside a "# managed by etckeeper"
comment block. (You may want to add such a comment block to your existing
.gitignore, or delete the file and regenerate it.)
* Run etckeeper update-ignore on upgrade.
* Fix handling of -d in recursive calls to etckeeper
etckeeper (0.29) unstable; urgency=low
* Add a daily cron job to autocommit changes to /etc. Closes: #515100
The cron job is enabled by default but can be disabled
(Thanks to Thierry Carrez)
* Fix executable bits on two darcs support scripts.
etckeeper (0.28) unstable; urgency=low
* Support darcs. Thanks to Gian Piero Carrubba. Closes: #510032
etckeeper (0.27) unstable; urgency=low
* Use SUDO_USER as the committer if set. Closes: #498739
* bzr: Avoid use of etckeeper pre-commit on Trees not on the
filesystem. (Jelmer Vernooij)
etckeeper (0.26) unstable; urgency=low
* Add Japanese debconf translation. Closes: #512869
* Prevent git from removing a directory when the last file in it
has been removed, but the directory is left existing and empty,
by touching a flag file before calling git rm. Closes: 513006
etckeeper (0.25) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix filter_unknown calls. Closes: 509888
etckeeper (0.24) unstable; urgency=low
* Make .etckeeper test that files actually exist
before acting on them. Closes: #509888
etckeeper (0.23) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix hook scripts to use new etckeeper path. Closes: #509742
etckeeper (0.22) unstable; urgency=low
* Move etckeeper to sbin, and man page to section 8, since only an admin
can really use etckeeper. Closes: #509152
* Mention README file from man page.
* Build using python-central. For some reason bzr does not pick up on
plugins built using python-support.
