Update on xkb-data(-udeb)


as announced early and lately[1,2], I'm uploading xkb-data 2.1 to
unstable now.

 1. http://lists.debian.org/debian-x/2011/01/msg00817.html
 2. http://lists.debian.org/debian-x/2011/04/msg00091.html

xkb-data 2.2 was released recently[3] (and 2.2.1[4] quickly after that
to fix build issues), apparently with many changes on the descriptions
/ translations side.

 4. http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg-announce/2011-April/001638.html

Changes that could be of interest for d-i / console-setup:
| Files in second .changes but not in first
| -----------------------------------------
| -rw-r--r--  root/root   /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/apl
| -rw-r--r--  root/root   /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/tw
| Files in first .changes but not in second
| -----------------------------------------
| -rw-r--r--  root/root   /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/extras/apl
| -rw-r--r--  root/root   /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/extras/ir
| -rw-r--r--  root/root   /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/extras/rs
| -rw-r--r--  root/root   /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/extras/ru
| -rw-r--r--  root/root   /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/extras/us

Also, xkb-data now Breaks: older libx11-6. That's said to be
unsupported on the udeb side (like Conflicts), so I didn't add
anything to the udeb. It's probably unlikely to cause issues (there's
no partial upgrade to handle in d-i). Even more so since the needed
(1.4.3) version of libx11's been uploaded to sid, while this new
xkb-data will go to experimental instead. But I wanted to mention that
possible pitfall on this list anyway.
