alien 5.17 -> 5.18 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/admin
alien (5.18) unstable; urgency=low
  * Use debhelper to build alien (still uses debstd to convert package).
  * Use dpkg-deb if available, instead of using ar. This fixes #12318: alien
    can now handle old format deb files.

chris-cust - Christoph's Preferred Customizations
chris-cust 0.2 -> 0.3 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/misc
chris-cust (0.3) unstable; urgency=low
  * New script: i  start up irc session with irc.debian.org to find helpful

    10 fastest mirrors
  * #11764 fix. (supposed sec hole)

debhelper  - helper programs for debian/rules
debhelper 0.2 -> 0.3 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/utils
debhelper (0.3) unstable; urgency=low
  * Added support for automatic generation of debian install scripts to
    dh_installmenu and dh_installdebfiles and dh_clean.
  * Removed some pointless uses of cat.

elk (3.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
  * Rebuilt with libc6
  * Provide manpages for ldflags-elk, makedl and linkscheme (Bug#6280)
  * Renamed changelog.upstream.gz changelog.gz
  * Pristine sources

User contributed fonts for figlet
This package contains independently contributed fonts for
the `figlet' program. These fonts do not have consistent
copyrights and so are distributed separately from figlet.
Also provided Chinese-Japanese-Korean fonts for figlet
figfonts-cjk 2.2-1 into hamm/non-free/binary-all/text
figfonts 2.1.1-2 -> 2.2-1 into hamm/non-free/binary-all/text
* New upstream source
* New maintaier
* New Standards version (Bug#9568)
* Added bdf2flf
* Added some stuff from cjk (chinese-japanese-korean)
* Put cjk stuff into a third package called figfonts-cjk

figfonts   - User contributed fonts for figlet
figfonts-cjk - Chinese-Japanese-Korean fonts for figlet
figfonts-cjk 2.2-1 -> 2.2-2 into hamm/non-free/binary-all/text
figfonts 2.2-1 -> 2.2-2 into hamm/non-free/binary-all/text
figfonts (2.2-2) unstable; urgency=low
  * now the package use compressed fonts
  * new maintainer

kernel-package - Debian Linux kernel package build scripts.
kernel-package 3.40 -> 3.41 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/misc
kernel-package (3.41) unstable; urgency=low
  * Handle obsolete /System.map and /System.old links left around by older
    kernel-package packages. All the programs that look at the information
    in the map files (including top, ps, and klogd) also will look at
    /boot/System.map-<version>, we just need to ensure that that file is
    present, and no longer require the symbolic link.
    Actually, having the sumbolic link in / is technically detrimental
    (apart from cluttering up /); many programs, though looking in /boot,
    stll allow /Sytem.map to override. If you use LILO to choose between
    multiple kernels, then the /System.map symbolic link only applies to
    one such kernel, for all other choices the symbols loaded will be
    wrong. Not having the symbolic links at all prevents this.
    Therefore, the new image.postinst file shall offer to remove the
    symbolic links in /. This should fix BUG#13359

modconf    - Device Driver Configuration
modconf 0.2.12 -> 0.2.13 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/base
modconf (0.2.13) unstable; urgency=low
  * modconf: mangle module name for calling post-install (#11131, #12156)
  * modconf: use tput when available (#11956, partially)
  * modconf: create TempFile using the tempfile command (#11836)
  * debian/rules: build package in binary-indep rule (#12489)

mysql-manual - MySQL Manual in HTML format
mysql-manual 0.80-2 -> 0.80-3 into hamm/non-free/binary-all/devel
mysql-manual (0.80-3) unstable; urgency=low
  * db table does not contain File_priv field (fixes #10976)

pkg-order  - A Package dependency checker and install ordering tool
pkg-order 0.13 -> 0.14 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/misc
pkg-order (0.14) unstable; urgency=low
  * Added a use var to shut up the warning. This is needed because of an
    overzealous MakeMaker adding a line that fails with using strict error
    checking. This should fix BUG#13335.
  * Remove mention of elf-x11r6 from  the Packages file in the test suite.

weblint    - a syntax and minimal style checker for HTML
weblint 1.017-1 -> 1.020-1 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/web
