jhcore (1.8.0-4) unstable; urgency=high
  * Fix permissions of core database files in /var/lib/lambdamoo/ so they
    cannot be read by others. (Before, it was possible to get wizard on the
    moo by loading up a core file in emergency mode.)
  * Use debhelper.

lambdacore 02feb97-8 -> 02feb97-9 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/net
lambdacore (02feb97-9) unstable; urgency=high
  * Fix permissions of core database files in /var/lib/lambdamoo/ so they
    cannot be read by others. (Before, it was possible to get wizard on the
    moo by loading up a core file in emergency mode.)
  * Use debhelper.

bind-doc (8.1.1-3) unstable; urgency=low

chris-cust (0.4) unstable; urgency=low
  * Add maint script to figure out what packages are maintained by a given
    maintainer and the depon script to figure out which packages depend
    on a given package. This becomes more and more a collection of bash
    scripts. Maybe I better rename the package?
  * Remove the Backspace fix-ups. Too many programs have the Linux way
    of backspace resulting in a DEL character hardcoded.

  * Added +LANGUAGE=en to a few pgp calls where it were missing (Bug #13549)
  * Changed the shell referenc to /bin/bash as that it wont work with an standard sh shell

sudo       - Provides limited super user privileges to specific users.
sudo 1.5.2-4 -> 1.5.2-5 into hamm/hamm/binary-alpha/admin
sudo (1.5.2-5) unstable; urgency=LOW
  * libc6

tob        - Small yet powerful program for tape oriented backups.
tob 0.14-2 -> 0.14-3 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/utils
tob (0.14-3) unstable; urgency=low
  * Changed command for deletion of 'Full' backup logs to more explicit
    shell command as is done for 'incremental' backups (fixes bug #12766)
  * Updated /etc/tob/tob.rc with zftape recommendations
  * Now uses pristine upstream sources in tob_0.14.orig.tar.gz

virtual-dev - Limits disk spin-ups by putting /dev/ on a ramdisk
virtual-dev 0.1 -> 0.2 into project/experimental
virtual-dev (0.2) experimental; urgency=low
  * Corrected '>' to '2>' in rc.boot script.
  * Corrected README; there's no /usr/sbin/virtual-dev-config!
  * Added "written by" and "public domain" notices all over the place.
  * Config file is now in /etc/virtual-dev/.  Postinst moves the file
    if necessary.
  * In postinst, check whether ramdisk device files are up-to-date,
    and update them if necessary.  If /dev is mounted, signal rc.boot
    script to do the necessary updates instead.
  * Add CONSOLEDIR= setting to config file.  Move /dev/console out of
    /dev and into $CONSOLEDIR, leaving a symlink.  Fixes nasty message
    from umount on system shutdown.
  * Increase default number of inodes on /dev filesystem from 1000 to
    1500, and size from 100Kb to 150Kb, because a newly installed bo
    system will contain about 1300 inodes in /dev.  When I tried creating
    a 1500-inode Minix filesystem, it worked, but I hear that this may
    not work on all systems...
  * Made it possible for the persistent to choose a nonexistant block
    device for the ramdisk in postinst.
  * When purging, if /dev is mounted, don't remove
    /etc/virtual-dev/console.  Only remove it on next boot by creating
    /etc/rc.boot/virtual-dev-purger script.
  * Adjust boot-time messages to (in my opinion) adhere more closely to
    Debian policy.

zcode-support - Menuing support for Z-code games
zcode-support 0.1 -> 0.2 into hamm/hamm/binary-all/games
zcode-support (0.2) unstable; urgency=low
  * Use generic debian/rules; reorganise old rules into debian/process.
  * If running an X11 interpreter, run it in the background and exit
  * Move menu conffile from /usr/lib/menu to /etc/menu.
