debhelper (0.79hamm1) frozen; urgency=low
  * Upload to hamm only becuase debhelper has branched for slink.
  * dh_strip: strip .comment and .note, not comment and note, when stripping
    elf binaries. This makes for smaller output files. This has always been
    broken in debhelper before! (#22395)

  * 2 Minor changes to allow fakeroot to compile with egcs.
    However, as egcs is the only c++ compiler with debian, I think
    it is essential (even to comply with the DFSG) that this is put in
    frozen too.
  * Added a "umask 022" to the test/tartest script, as otherwise it will only
    work if whoever compiles fakeroot happens to have a umaks of 022.

jadetex (0.61-1.1) frozen unstable; urgency=low
  * Non-maintainer release
  * debian/control: starting with tetex-extra 0.9-5, hyperref is obsolete,
    so we shouldn't depend on both.  Used the rather complex depends
    provided by Anthony Fok <foka@debian.org> (closes Bug#21110,
    Bug#21885, Bug#22455)
  * debian/postinst:  rather than hardcode the path of tempfile, use

lintian    - Debian package checker
lintian 0.4.3 -> 0.4.4 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/devel
lintian (0.4.4) unstable; urgency=low
  * (checks/scripts) Suppress script-not-executable warnings for files
    in /usr/lib that match *.pm.  These are perl modules, which often
    have a #!/usr/bin/perl line at the top but are not intended to be
    executed directly.
  * (info/override) Removed now-suppressed warnings from the overrides file.
  * (info/override) Added more overrides.  (closes #21028).
  * (checks/scripts) At Oliver Elphick's suggestion, do not emit
    *-script-but-no-*-dep tags or csh-considered-harmful tags for
    scripts that are not executable.  (These already produce a
    script-not-executable warning).
  * (checks/binaries) At Yann Dirson's suggestion, added a tag for
    stripped binaries that still have the .comment and .note sections.
    This tag is info-level, thus not normally displayed.
    dh_strip and install -s have been patched to strip these sections,
    but most of the distribution has not been recompiled with the patched
  * (checks/binaries.desc) Described the new tag.
    (closes #22495).
  * (man/lintian.1) Documented the options that were added in lintian 0.4.3.
  * (checks/fields) Produce informational tags no-section-field and
    no-priority-field.  These were removed in a previous version, because
    nearly all packages do not pass -isp to dpkg-gencontrol when building
    packages, but the new handling of info-level tags makes them useful again.
