dwww 1.2-1 released (xyzzy)

[ Please don't Cc: me when replying to my message on a mailing list. ]

I've uploaded dwww 1.2-1. It still doesn't work with Apache.
I think it's because Apache doesn't follow symlinks, but I'm
not interested in Apache, and won't be spending time to fix
it, since the upcoming web standards should solve this issue

The big lacking feature is full text searching. I won't have time
to implement that until next year, I hope[1]. If someone else
wants to do it, or wants to take over dwww completely, mail me.

This release should _not_ go into frozen, even though it fixes
some bugs. It has too many new features to be called a bugfix

 dwww (1.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * Added debian/* into upstream source. This changelog now works for
     upstream source as well.
   * Moved dwwwconfig into debian/dwwwconfig.
   * Added /usr/local/doc and /usr/share/doc into dwww front page.
   * Fixed dwww-cache's --list and --list-all show that they don't show
     out-of-date documents.
   * Changed "Package specific directories" into a normal "dir" request
     to dwww.cgi. This makes new packages immediately visible.
   * Removed "Copyrights" and "Examples" from front page. They're now
     inside package specific directories.
   * Added a C program to convert text to HTML. Much faster than the old
     sed jungle, and works better, too. Does manual pages too. However,
     doesn't remove headers and footers yet (and the old shell script
     code was buggy, so I removed it).
   * Removed package specific directory listing and copyrights from
     front page (and dwww-build). The latter is no longer needed, the
     former is better done with dir2html and caching.
   * Removed support for Info files (use info2www instead, since it
     actually works).
   * Removed support for compressed files in the cache. It slowed things
     too much, and wasn't all that useful, unless you were _really_
     short on disk space.
   * Fixed bug in dwww-quickfind: now searching for "sh" doesn't find
     tkdesksh (for example), but always finds something that ends in
     /sh, i.e., /bin/sh. Still a problem if there is both a /bin/sh
     and a /usr/bin/sh.
   * dwww-quickfind: Reads output of "dpkg --search '*'" instead of
     /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.list. This gives more portability, but makes
     dwww-daily somewhat slower. Only looks at files that contain
     /bin/, /sbin/, /usr/games/, for speed reasons.
   * dwww-cache: strip unnecessary .html end from files in /var/spool/dwww.
   * Added dwww-format-man: batch format manual pages into the cache.
   * Added dependency on man, for obvious reasons.
   * Added lists of documents (dwww-doc-linux).
   * Added GPL as file COPYING.
   * Fixed man-sections.html.
   * dwww-cache: Added prefix compression.
   * dwww-build: fixed suffix removal from name (in.telnetd.8 used to
     result in "in", now in "in.telnetd")
   * dwww-build: doesn't find non-English manual pages (because they
     make lists confusing; a future version will create separate lists
     for each language)
