       file-descriptor always failed with "bad file descriptor".
   * lib/Lintian/Lab.pm:
     + [NT] Null fields extra metadata fields in the lab storage
       that are no longer used.  These were previously used by
       the reporting framework.
     + [NT] Automatically correct lab metadata, when the lab
       discovers an entry does not exist.  Any remains of the
       entry will be removed as well.  Previously, the lab would
       just throw an error and require a manuel correction of
       the lab.
   * lib/Lintian/Reporting/ResourceManager.pm:
     + [NT] Only preserve the last extension of the installed
       resource.  Previously it would keep all "extensions",
       including long parts of the original name if it happened
       to contain a period.
   * lib/Lintian/Util.pm:

       is recent enough.
     + [NT] Stricten the permitted whitespace at the end of GPG
       marker lines.  This is the same issue as CVE-2015-0840,
       except lintian never attempted to validate the signature.
     + [NT] Explicitly use YAML::XS for reading and writing
       YAML files.  YAML::Any does not specify an interface for
       reliably read YAML files in UTF-8 encoding leading to
       "mojibake" in some cases.  Thanks to Andreas Rönnquist

   * reporting/{harness,html_reports}:
     + [NT] Rewrite harness and remove the hard dependency on
       a functional permanent laboratory in the reporting
       - The framework now relies on the "harness state cache"
         (a YAML file), which can be updated atomically.
       - The harness framework now avoids stat(2)ing all
         artefacts on the mirror just to check if they are
       - The harness frontends use less memory and now
         releases most of it before calling html_reports.
         This should reduce the peak memory requirements
         considerably for the html_reports part of the run.
   * reporting/{html_reports,templates/*}:
     + [NT] Reorder the datastructures shared with templates
       for better data sharing.  This reduces the memory
       consumption of html_reports by ~25% on lintian.d.o.
   * reporting/html_reports:
     + [NT] Templates are now always read and (their output)
       written in the UTF-8 encoding.
     + [NT] Stop reading $statistics_file from the config file.
   * t:
     + [NT] Apply patch from Matt Kraai to fix test case on
       i386.  (Closes: #771113)
   * t/scripts/pod-spelling.t:
     + [AB] Hardcode aspell as spelling command since Test::Spelling
       prefers spell over aspell if installed, too. This avoids having to
       add a "Build-Conflicts: spell".
   * t/tests/files-embedded/:
     + [AB] Add test case for #783327.

       to Axel Beckert for reporting the bug.
       (Closes: #765995)
   * collection/{bin-pkg-control,unpacked}:
     + [NT] Pass "-m" to tar to make it avoid "correcting" the
       timestamp of the extracted files.  Lintian does not need
       it for correctness, so it can make tar save a few syscalls
     + [NT] Explicitly pass tar options to make it extract files
       as the current user and applying the users umask.  This is
       mostly to be explicit about how things are extracted.
   * collection/file-info:
     + [NT] Stop collecting file-info for "non-files".  The output
       is not used and often trivial / predictable from other data
       input already available.

       "LINTIAN_" (and a select few well known variables) are
     + [NT] Runtime for collections and checks now only requires
       a single --debug option.  Lintian will now also show
       runtime for other things (e.g. total runtimes).
     + [NT] Add --perf-debug and --perf-output options to enable
       logging for performance data.  This is mostly intended
       to allow collecting performance data from archive-wide
     + [NT] Hide some options in the default output for --help.
       These can now be shown with "--help=extended".
     + [NT] Add a new "Developer/special usage options" section
       in the --help output for some options (e.g. --debug).
       This section is hidden by default.
   * lib/Lintian/Relation.pm:
     + [NT] Unparsable entries are now included in relation
       objects rather than being silently discarded.

       most of the features of spawn().
   * lib/Lintian/Path.pm:
     + [NT] Add support for fetching and (where it makes sense)

       python-script-but-no-python-dep when dh_python2 generates
       a dependency of "python:any".  Thanks to Francois Gouget
       for the report.  (Closes: #711988)
   * data/scripts/versioned-interpreters:
     + [NT] Add python 2.7 and remove 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6.  Also

     + [NT] Automatically determine the LINTIAN_ROOT when run from
       the extracted source dir.
     + [NT] Deprecate --root and LINTIAN_ROOT.  These are largely
       obsolete as Lintian can now automatically determine the
       proper LINTIAN_ROOT.  To avoid surprises, lintian will
       now exit with an error if requested to use a different
       LINTIAN_ROOT than the one lintian expected to use.

       the function to be called with only one argument like

       libc as long as they link against libstdc++.  This

   * checks/cruft.pm:
     + [NT] Skip d/README.Debian and d/README.source when
