    sections of shared libraries.
  * Added DH_OPTIONS environment variable - anything in it will be treated
    as additional command line arguments by all debhelper commands. This in
    useful in some situations, for example, if you need to pass -p to all
    debhelper commands that will be run. If you use DH_OPTIONS, be sure to
    use dh_testversion 1.1.17 - older debhelpers will ignore it and do
    things you don't want them to.
  * Made -N properly exclude packages when no -i, -a, or -p flags are

kernel-package - Debian Linux kernel package build scripts.
kernel-package 5.04 -> 5.05 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/misc
kernel-package (5.05) unstable; urgency=low
  * Fix documentation about using the rootcmd option. closes: BUG#25566
  * fixed source postinst so it no longer expects an untarred
    /usr/src/kernel-source-VERSION directory. closes: BUG#25650, 26511

  * Fix case in the name of the Flavours file. closes: BUG#26434

    whatever they wish. Also changed the postinst to not freak out when
    the image apparently goes missing.
  * Added the support for different config files depending on architecture
    and sub arch. A set of config files for different archs are shipped in
    /usr/lib/kernel-package/Config/. This is useful for people who compile
    for several architectures.
  * Major cleanup and rewrite for mutiarchitecture support. All arch
    related stuff is catured in a section on top. There is no need to edit
    it into the kernel makeile, we can now determine subarchs ourselves.
  * Also pass along the maintainers email address while compiling the
    modules, not just the name.
  * Make sure that sparcs use the vmlinux file, and gzip it. This
    closes: BUG#26199
  * Cleaned up the modules installation part. Now it conforms more closely
    to the kernel makefile, and indeed, it uses the kernel Makefile for
    the newer kernles where the module install path is modifiable using
    the new INSTALL_MOD_PATH variable.

lintian (0.8.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * (checks/scripts, checks/scripts.desc)  Added /usr/bin/js as a known
    interpreter (in ngs-js), as suggested by Brian Bassett.
  * (checks/shared-libs)  Brian Bassett reported inaccuracies in detection
    of "ldconfig" calls in maintainer scripts.  Fixed.
  * (checks/menu-format)  Skip checks on "section" if the "needs" tag had an
    unknown value.  This deals with bug#26375, reported by Marcelo E. Magallon.
  * (checks/manpages)  Fixed: check for links to "undocumented" manpage
    should not react to link destinations like "ilu-undocumented".
  * changelog-file-missing-in-native-debian-package shortened to
  * wrong-name-for-changelog-file-of-native-debian-package shortened to

  * Fixed three bugs wrt user .supertab files
    1) super seg. faults, if the full path + name of the user .supertab is
       longer than the default name, which easily happens in debian, as
       the default is the (short) /etc/super.tab
    2) super tries to execute "acct:cmd" instead of "cmd" in user mode for
    3) super tries to clear/set extra groups, but in user mode the euid
       already changed to !root, so setgroups() fails and super complains
