----- !!! HIGH URGENCY PACKAGES !!! -----
bind - An Internet domain name server
dnsutils - Utilities for querying the DNS
bind 8.1.2-1 -> 8.1.2-2 into dists/hamm/main/binary-alpha/net
bind 8.1.2-1 -> 8.1.2-2 into dists/slink/main/binary-alpha/net
dnsutils 8.1.2-1 -> 8.1.2-2 into dists/hamm/main/binary-alpha/net
dnsutils 8.1.2-1 -> 8.1.2-2 into dists/slink/main/binary-alpha/net
bind (1:8.1.2-2) frozen unstable; urgency=high
* new maintainer
* update to latest standards revision
* the postinst/bindconfig process need to be completely reworked to
eliminate the BIND 4.x-isms, but it's too much to undertake before
hamm goes stable. Thus, this version attempts to slightly improve
behavior without making changes likely to open new bugs.
* if /etc/named.conf already exists, give the user a chance to bail out of
bindconfig before customizations get trashed. Closes 17671 (important).
* stop providing /etc/ppp/ip-up.d and ip-down.d fragments, at least until
we come up with a better way to handle the security and performance
issues. Closes 21743 (grave), and 23091 (important).
* stop providing /usr/doc/bind/checksums.txt, since calling pgp from within
debian/rules causes fakeroot problems. It's also unclear to me why this
is an important thing to do in the bind package if we're not doing it
anywhere else... Closes 15461.
* take the netgod.net special case out of the postinst, closes 21136.
* reviewed all open bugs, closed several old ones that are no longer
relevant, deferring the remainder to slink.
* Lintian clean, except for warnings about 'mx' and 'ns' representing
possible namespace pollution.

* Applied patch to fix buffer overflows in LYMail.c (fixes bug #22165, 22154)
* Removed doscs/CHANGES2-10 files that had been used for testing
* Added section and priority to control file (fixes bug# 20420).
* Includes FSSTND-compliant compiled-in defaults for mime.types
and mailcap. (fixes bug #21441).
* Lynx now uses the first entry in the mailcap instead of the last one.
(fixes bugs #7595, 10247)

cfingerd (1.3.2-9) frozen unstable; urgency=medium, closes=21230 21566
* Corrected search_fake() which depended on 80 char strings but received
a 100 character one. (closes: Bug#21230)
* Protected defines.h with ifdef
* Added reference to new development team
* Added reference to new mailing list
* Changed error address to the new mailing list
* When the remote identd refuses the request cfingerd will handle this
correctly (closes: Bug#21566)
debmake - Debianizing Tool and automated binary generation
debmake 3.5.10 -> 3.5.11 into dists/hamm/main/binary-all/devel
debmake 3.5.10 -> 3.5.11 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/devel
debmake (3.5.11) frozen unstable; urgency=medium
* postinst calls ldconfig only when called with "configure" (Bug #23228).

jadetex (0.61-1.2) frozen unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer release
* eliminate jadetex-texconfig for texconfig; use tetex's texconfig
instead. The old jadetex-texconfig is still in the source archive
though; hopefully it is no longer required.
(closes grave Bug#22688, Bug#22638, Bug#22639, Bug#22766)
* Note there are known cases, such as generating php-doc, where tetex
seems to run out of memory internally; I think this is a tetex-base
bug (report as a bug)
sysvinit - System-V like init.
sysvinit 2.75-1 -> 2.75-2 into dists/hamm/main/binary-alpha/base
sysvinit 2.75-1 -> 2.75-2 into dists/slink/main/binary-alpha/base
sysvinit (2.75-2) frozen unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix last.c again.
* Add check to see if /dev/initctl is really a FIFO
* In ifdown.c first down all shaper devices then the real devices
* Fixes bugs:
#22840: sysvinit (2.75-1): patch request for sparc
#22965: rcS is not sh independent
#22945: Problems with last ( bug in sysvinit package)?
#23005: sysvinit: [patch] install initreq.h for `genpowerd' patch.

it's needed for the afclientconfig script)
* included snippet of debian/rules in README.server.Debian to show the
configuration of the package if you want to build for a non-Debian
machine; suggested by Ossama Othman firstname.lastname@example.org

cgi-scripts (1.0.8) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* Added conflict with ncsa (<= 1.4.2-6) recommended by Richard
Braakman, to resolve bo->hamm file overlap.
* Converted from debmake to debhelper packaging technology.
* Fixed all lintian errors.
debhelper - helper programs for debian/rules
debhelper 0.88 -> 0.90 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/devel
debhelper (0.90) unstable; urgency=low
* I'd like to thank Len Pikulski and Igor Grobman at nothinbut.net for
providing me with free internet access on a moment's notice, so I could
get this package to you after hacking on it all over New England for the
past week. Thanks, guys!
* Added dh_debstd, which mimics the functionality of the debstd command.
It's not a complete nor an exact copy, and it's not so much intended to
be used in a debian/rules file, as it is to be run by hand when you are
converting a package from debstd to debhelper. "dh_debstd -v" will
output the sequence of debhelper commands that approximate what debstd
would do in the same situation.
* dh_debstd is completly untested, I don't have the source to any packages
that use debstd available. Once this is tested, I plan to release
* Added a from-debstd document that gives a recipe to convert from debstd
* dh_fixperms: can now use -X to exclude files from having their
* dh_testroot: test for uid == 0, instead of username == root, becuase
some people enjoy changing root's name.
* dh_installinit: handle debian/init.d as well as debian/init files,
for backwards compatability with debstd. Unlike with debstd, the two
files are treated identically.
* dh_lib, PROGRAMMING: added "warning" function.
* Minor man page fixes.
* dh_compress: don't bomb out if usr/doc/<package> is empty. (#23054)
* dh_compress, dh_installdirs: always cd into $TMP and back out, even if
--no-act is on. (#23054)
dpkg-repack - puts an unpacked .deb file back together
dpkg-repack 0.17 -> 0.18 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/admin

idutch - The dutch dictionary for ispell, in new (August 1996) spelling.
wdutch - List of Dutch words in new (August 1996) spelling.

wdutch 0.1e-4 -> 0.1e-5 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/text
dutch (1:0.1e-5) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* Use Kenneth McDonald's example postinst and prerm for registering
idutch as an ispell dictionary.
* debian/rules: install new maintainer scripts for ispell.
(It didn't have any before).
* This should go into frozen, because the previous idutch is nonfunctional
unless someone installs another ispell dictionary as well. (Thus, it
fails to fulfill the "Provides: ispell-dictionary" that it promises.)
The maintainer scripts that were added were taken from ispanish, with
s/spanish/dutch/ everywhere, so they have been well tested elsewhere.
* This problem was found by the testing group.
eject - ejects CDs and operates CD-Changers under Linux
eject 1.5-5 -> 1.5-6 into dists/hamm/main/binary-alpha/misc
eject 1.5-6 into dists/slink/main/binary-alpha/misc

* Applied security fix from bugtraq (#22960), fixing buffer overflow.
* Includes new copyright text (#22980, important) negotiated by David
Welton and applied retroactively by Michael Sandrof and other IRC-II
authors -- this makes bitchx free enough to continue including with

kernel-package - Debian Linux kernel package build scripts.
kernel-package 4.11 -> 5.01 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/misc
kernel-package (5.01) unstable; urgency=low
* Added rudimentary support for the alpha. Please note that locations of
the image may change in the future.

packages. This makes sure that dpkg can handle removal gracefully, and
people may unpack the sources where they wish.

man page uptodate. closes: BUG#23280

symlink does! Fixed error on logic that made dangling sym links cause
kernel-image packages to fail. closes: BUG#23273

latex2html - LaTeX to HTML translator.
latex2html 98.1p1-4 -> 98.1p1-5 into dists/hamm/contrib/binary-all/tex
latex2html 98.1p1-4 -> 98.1p1-5 into dists/slink/contrib/binary-all/tex
latex2html (98.1p1-5) frozen unstable; urgency=low
* This fixes a critical problem with LaTeX2HTML going into an infinite
loop, rendering the program useless for people. The change involved is
a single line; we just close an open stream in the child of a
fork. For some reason, having the stream open in both the parent and
the child was the source of the problem. This is critical enough to
break the hard freeze.
latex2html - LaTeX to HTML translator.
latex2html 98.1p1-5 -> 98.1p5-1 into dists/slink/contrib/binary-all/tex
latex2html (98.1p5-1) unstable; urgency=low

lintian (0.4.7) unstable; urgency=low
* Removed Christian's name wherever it appeared as a contact address.
* (depcheck/buglist) Entered newly reported bug numbers for dependency
* (checks/menus) Distinguish between install-docs and install-docs -r.
* (checks/files) Added new tag backup-file-in-package. This warns
about emacs-style backup files that got installed in a package.
* (frontend/lintian) Allow I: tags to be overridden just like any other.
* (frontend/lintian) Add support for "Experimental" tags. These are
handled like other tags, but an "Experimental: yes" flag in the tag
description tells lintian to output them with "X:" rather than "E:"
or "W:" or "I:". This is used for new tags that might still misbehave.
* (doc/lintian.sgml) Add a paragraph to explain the new tag type.
"The displayed message is one of types listed above, but has been
flagged as `experimental' by the Lintian maintainers. This means
that the code that generates this message is not as well tested as
the rest of Lintian, and might still give surprising results. Feel
free to ignore Experimental messages that do not seem to make sense,
though of course bug reports are always welcomed."
lintian - Debian package checker
lintian 0.4.7 -> 0.4.8 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/devel
lintian (0.4.8) unstable; urgency=low
New error tag: "multiline-field" flags control fields that span multiple
lines when they shouldn't. (According to the Packaging manual,
"Except where otherwise stated only a single line of data is allowed").
Check dependency relationship fields as well.

(generated for Provides fields that use a versioned package name)
(generated for use of < and > in versioned relationships)
(generated if the version number in a versioned relation
is not syntactically correct)
(generated if lintian cannot parse an element of a dependency line)
Bugfix to maintainer-not-full-name tag, it works now.
Added maintainer-address-looks-weird warning for obscure cases.
I doubt anyone will ever see it.
Added new-essential-package warning, to highlight such packages.

crash when using "outline" mode for moving and resizing windows.

applets at the same time. (closes: bug#19764)
