Source: dh-ocaml
Binary: dh-ocaml
Architecture: source all
Version: 0.4.1~bpo50+1
Distribution: lenny-backports
Urgency: low
Maintainer: Debian OCaml Maintainers <debian-ocaml-maint@lists.debian.org>
Changed-By: Romain Beauxis <toots@rastageeks.org>
 dh-ocaml   - helper tools for maintaining OCaml-related Debian packages
Closes: 451675 514517 514996
 dh-ocaml (0.4.1~bpo50+1) lenny-backports; urgency=low
   * Rebuild for lenny-backports.
 dh-ocaml (0.4.1) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Samuel Mimram ]
   * Correct typo in dh_ocaml (Closes: #514996)
   [ Stefano Zacchiroli ]
   * switch versioning scheme to major.minor.micro: we will bump minor
     only for significant changes, and micro for bugfixes (as usual)
   * package description: clarify that debian/rules helpers are both for
     CDBS and for generic debian/rules
   * ocamlinit.mk: avoid stripping leading white spaces while filling .in
     files. Rationale: that could break files for which spaces are relevant
     (e.g. debian/patches/*.in)
 dh-ocaml (0.4) unstable; urgency=low
   * ocamlinit.mk: clean up ocamlinit-stamp upon ocamlinit-clean (it used
     to induce very subtle FTBFSs)
 dh-ocaml (0.3) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Stephane Glondu ]
   * CDBS / Makefile snippets:
     - ocaml.mk: use ocamlinit.mk
     - ocamlvars.mk: remove OCAML_IN_FILES, defined in ocamlinit.mk
   [ Samuel Mimram ]
   * Add variable OCAML_OCAMLDOC in ocamlvars.mk to get the best ocamldoc for
     the architecture.
   * Substitute everywhere in ocamlinit.
   * Add myself to uploaders.
   [ Mehdi Dogguy ]
   * Add variable OCAML_BEST in ocamlvars.mk: 'opt' when ocamlopt is
     present and 'byte' otherwise.
   * Add myself to uploaders.
   [ Stefano Zacchiroli ]
   * Move CDBS' ocaml.mk from class/ to rules/; provide a symlink for
     backward compatibility (Closes: #514517)
   * uploading to unstable
 dh-ocaml (0.2) experimental; urgency=low
   [ Sylvain Le Gall ]
   * Add a script to test "-custom" binary
   [ Mehdi Dogguy ]
   * Add HOWTO update/publish the policy section to README.Debian
   [ Stephane Glondu ]
   * Policy:
     - remove XS- prefix in XS-Vcs-*
     - add preliminary documentation for Git packaging
   * CDBS:
     - handle lines starting with "OPT: " in *.in files
     - remove Julien from $(OCAML_TEAM)
     - move parts of CDBS to /usr/share/ocaml
   * Provide ocamlinit snippet in /usr/share/ocaml
   * Set Maintainer to d-o-m, add Stefano and me to Uploaders
   * Add DM-Upload-Allowed (with Stefano's blessing)
 dh-ocaml (0.1) experimental; urgency=low
   * Initial release
   * Split this new package, out of other ocaml-* packages, to contain support
     stuff used to maintain OCaml-related packages in Debian (Closes: #451675)
