New Debian alpha Packages

These alpha packages were installed into the Debian hierarchy in the
last week:

----- !!! HIGH URGENCY PACKAGES !!! -----

ae         - Anthony's Editor -- a tiny full-screen editor
ae 962-17.1 -> 962-19 into dists/hamm/main/binary-alpha/base
ae 962-17.1 -> 962-19 into dists/slink/main/binary-alpha/base
ae (962-19) frozen unstable; urgency=high
  * rebuilt ae.rc to provide emacs keybindings
  *      provides full functionality on terminals without function keys.
  * new keybindings remove the problem with ^O (file write)
  *      when used under Midnight Commander, which caused ae to abort.

file-rc    - Alternative one-configfile boot mechanism
file-rc 0.4.2 -> 0.4.3 into dists/hamm/main/binary-all/admin
file-rc 0.4.2 -> 0.4.3 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/admin
file-rc (0.4.3) unstable frozen; urgency=high, closes=19507 19310 17882 20963
  * Complete rewrite of the commandline parser for update-rc.d.  It now
    handles different runlevels correctly and works similar to the program
    as provided by sysvinit.
  * Included support for runlevel S (closes: Bug#19507)
  * Wrote and included rcS
  * Moved /etc/init.d/reboot and /etc/init.d/halt from sequence 05 to 99
  * Use dpkg-divert for /etc/init.d/rcS
  * Complete rewrite of debian/rules as it's now clear that I'm not only
    an interim maintainer. (closes: Bug#19310)
  * Applied patch from Wakko Warner <wakko@ani.animx.ml.org> to support
    .sh files. (closes: Bug#17882)
  * Used new source ftp address in copyright
  * Rewrote rclink2file.sh to support different start sequences
  * Hacked support for runlevel S into rcfile2link.sh
  * Removed /tmp files in favour of /etc tempfiles
  * Added support for runlevel S in rclink2file.sh
  * Added support for .sh files not marked executable
  * Modified /etc/init.d/rc to call all kill scripts first and then run
    the start scripts, when they're not called in the previous level -
    just like sysvinit.  (closes: Bug#20963)
  * New description
  * Added module to correct missing runlevel S support and wrong handling
    for reboot and halt to postinst
  * New Standards-Version
  * Heavy tested the code on a plain hamm machine as well as on a manual
    crippled machine.  Yes, it works.  Great.

    T. Steigies <exp114@physik.uni-kiel.de> for noticing my cluelessness.
  * debian/rules (binary-arch): pass "`pwd`/debian/tmp/usr/" not
    "debian/tmp/usr/" as the latter has the Makefile installing quinn diff
    into src/debian/tmp/usr/.
  * debian/control (Standards-Version): updated to

  * Upstream security release for Xaw library and xterm (including patches by
    our very own Richard Braakman) (Fixes: #21791,21794)

  * config/cf/lnxLib.rules: link extension modules with -lc (thanks, James
  * programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/xf86config/xfconfig86.c: fix insecure
    handling of temp files (thanks, Topi Miettinen)
  * programs/xdm/Imakefile: crude hack to force linking with -lcrypt; I think
    something may have changed with libc6 (or maybe the linker tools?) on
    master to break this, as I haven't had to do this before
  * programs/xfs/xfs.man: update man page
  * programs/xfs/os/config.c: let -port command line option override port
    specified in config file (thanks, Topi Miettinen)

  * debian/control: xnest and i386 xservers now replace old versions of xbase,
    since their manpages were moved into them from xbase
  * debian/create-arch-xbase: exclude X server and XF86Setup manpages from
    xbase package
  * debian/create-arch-xbase: exclude Xnest manpage from xbase package
    (Fixes: #21894,21998,22043,22146)
  * debian/create-font: do not ship fonts.dir; mkfontdir runs anyway in the
    font postinst; this also allows us an easy way of checking whether a font
    package has been configured or not
  * debian/create-server: put X server and XF86Setup manpages in appropriate
    server packages
  * debian/create-server-fake: handle manpages whether they exist or not
    (Fixes: #21438)

  * debian/xbase-init.d-xfs: brought messages and start-stop-daemon call into
    line with policy (Fixes: #22110)

    (the port may be set in /etc/X11/xfs/config)
  * debian/xbase-init.d-xfs: removed use of -config option; xfs defaults to
    looking in the right place
  * debian/xbase-init.d-xfs: return to running as root until some non-root
    issues are worked out
  * debian/xbase-preinst: implemented $condecho hack (thanks, Paul Slootman)
  * debian/xbase-postinst: correct reference to README file in existing
    versions of /etc/X11/config
  * debian/xbase-postinst: don't copy old directory contents if the
    directories are empty (Fixes: #22166)
  * debian/xbase-postinst: quoted $input (Fixes: #22025)
  * debian/xbase-postinst: implemented $condecho hack (thanks, Paul Slootman)
  * debian/xbase-postinst: don't run if xdm or xfs running

    this makes the backspace key comply with Debian keyboard policy (^?); set
    *VT100.Translations: #override <Key>Delete: string("\033[3~"); this
    makes the delete key comply with Debian keyboard policy
    (Fixes: #2313,6472,6689,15994,20622)
  * debian/xbase-writeconfig: make Home and End keys generate same sequences
    as they do in the virtual console
  * debian/xbase-writeconfig: make Xaw applications understand the delete key
  * debian/xbase-writeconfig: remove cyrillic font directory from xfs's default     catalog, since Cyrillic is not a standard font
  * debian/xbase-writeconfig: check for existence of xmessage before using it
    to display /etc/nologin
  * debian/xbase-writeconfig: add/change some of the comments written to the
    many configuration files in /etc/X11
  * debian/xbase-writeconfig: backed out change of default xterm colors,
    introduced in 3.3.2-4 (Fixes: #21864,22194)
  * debian/xserver-postinst: tweaked old file backup names and repaired
    server changing procedure (Fixes: #21858,21957,21980,22062,22201)
  * debian/xserver-postinst: implemented $condecho hack (thanks, Paul Slootman)
  * debian/xserver-postinst: if /etc/X11/Xserver does not exist, default to
    X server being installed
  * added comment including string "Debian:" to all modified upstream files

		ICMP_UNREACH_TOSHOST, fixes: Bug#22028
  * traceroute: added new 'l' option (show TTL value of the returned
		package, useful for checking for assymetric routing)
  * telnet: added patch from David A. Holland which fixes an OPOST
	    problem and a lot of signed/unsigned problems. It also
	    changes argv[0] (see ps output)

procmail   - Versatile e-mail processor.
procmail 3.10.7-5 -> 3.10.7-6 into dists/hamm/main/binary-alpha/mail

samba (1.9.18p7-4) frozen unstable; urgency=medium
  * Fixes the serious problem of having the WINS name server
    database getting deleted at boot time. That happened because the
    WINS database was being stored under /var/lock/samba/ and all files
    under /var/lock/ are deleted at boot time. The place where the WINS
    database is stored was moved to /var/samba/.

----- Low Urgency Packages --------------

apt 0.0.11 -> 0.0.13 into project/experimental
apt (0.0.13) experimental; urgency=low

db (2.4.10-1) unstable; urgency=low
  * Removed shlibs file for debug and profile because it couldn't work, as
    dpkg-shlibdep uses only the filename in path.
  * New upstream release.

debhelper  - helper programs for debian/rules
debhelper 0.87 -> 0.88 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/devel
debhelper (0.88) unstable; urgency=low
  * I had many hours on a train to hack on debhelper... enjoy!
  * dh_compress: always pass -f to gzip, to force compression.
  * dh_compress: added -X switch, to make it easy to specify files to
    exclude, without all the bother of a debian/compress script. You can
    use -X multiple times, too.
  * PROGRAMMING, dh_getopt.pl: DH_EXCLUDE is now a variable set by the
    --exclude (-X) switch. -x now sets DH_INCLUDE_CONFFILES.

debview    - Emacs mode for viewing Debian packages
debview 1.5-1 -> 1.5-2 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/editors
debview (1.5-2) unstable; urgency=low
  * License revisions as approved by author (Bug #21951).

dpkg-mountable - Enhanced access method for dselect
dpkg-mountable 0.6 -> 0.7 into dists/hamm/main/binary-alpha/admin
dpkg-mountable 0.7 into dists/slink/main/binary-alpha/admin
dpkg-mountable (0.7) unstable frozen; urgency=low
  * This package should go into frozen, since it contains bugfixes (many
    from private email which never got as far as the bug system), and no
    (readily accessible) new code. I am also quite keen to get the
    predependency support available in case it's needed.
  * Don't give uninitialised value error if the package we failed on isn't
    defined (which appears to be the normal case).
  * Make sure we log explanatory text to the log file as well as the screen.
  * Fix the location of the autoup.sh script.
  * More detail in the root filesystem message (fixes #18597).
  * Include support for predependencies. Doesn't fix any actual submitted
    bugs (I could submit one if you like), but I consider it a bugfix, since
    otherwise dpkg-mountable would be almost unusable for upgrades from Bo
    to Hamm, where it would be very useful.
  * Disable the support for predependencies again, since I can't seem to
    get dpkg --predep-package to behave consistently. If you want to live on
    the edge, try exporting DPKG_MOUNTABLE_PREDEP_SUPPORT before running. I am
    personally happy that this is correctly disabled.
  * Upgraded standards version.
  * Fixed typo in package description (fixes #18889).

e2fsprogs (1.10-17) frozen unstable; urgency=low
  * Commented out obsolete code in fsck.c that assumed fstab entries

  * Added an option to force closing a specified host, and to open/close
    a specified group of hosts, specifying just one of the hosts.
  * Added the option to list the firewall entries.
  * Better and (hopefully) more descriptive error messages.
  * Tell the user if the daemon (or other script etc) have closed the
    firewall for him/her, and exit cleanly.
  * Added support for more than one local network.
  * Make _ABSOLUTELY_ sure that we find the correct user, checking against
    our local domains.
  * New signal handlers, USR[12] which turn on resp turn off debugging.
  * Try to send a SMB message if we have to close the firewall to the
    user in question.
  * Fixed the bug that sometimes killed the daemon after killing a
    non-allowed users processes.
  * Fixed the checking a connect against the local net (make sure it is
    _NOT_ one of our own local networks).
  * Made the libc5 and libc6 work independently, from the same code.
    (We just recently switched to libc6 on our Internet server).
  * Security fixed a open();
  * If we can not find the IP number the user is coming from from the
    UTMP file (which we often can not on a libc5 machine), try to find it
    through a DNS lookup instead.
  * Speeded up the database fetching quite a loot, by specifying the
    exact entry. Added some new params to be able to do this, since they
    where local variables.
  * Officially added support for libc6 UTMP file.
  * OTHER:
  * Started hacking on a 'chkisdnlog', which give some status on the ISDN
  * Improved the manuals a little... I do this when I have time over, but
    I'm administring 30 machines, and teaching fulltime, so... :)
  * Fixed some bugs in the 'openfw' script, concerning the parsing and
    execution of the corresponding code.
