New Debian arm Packages

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

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

autoconf   - automatic configure script builder
autoconf 2.13-1 -> 2.13-2 into dists/potato/main/binary-all/devel
autoconf (2.13-2) unstable; urgency=high
  * Somehow I fscked up the upstream source in the last update, so
    although it was marked as being 2.13 on the packaging, it was actually
    an older version.

boot-floppies - Scripts to create the Debian installation floppy set.
boot-floppies 2.1.4 -> 2.1.5 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/admin
boot-floppies 2.1.4 -> 2.1.5 into dists/potato/main/binary-all/admin
boot-floppies (2.1.5) unstable frozen; urgency=high
  * Added Esperanto localization done by Edmund Grimley Evans.
  * busybox/chown.c: Use my own kludge for getpwnam, getpwuid, getgrnam
    and getgrgid. That removes the dependency on libc6 NSS (and 'foo: no
    such user' errors when the rootdisk doesn't contain libnss files &
    compat libraries).
  * dinstall/boxes.c: Print 24 blank lines right before erasing the
    screen. That way, the user may see the boot messages using
    Shift-PgUp. (Closes #22474).
  * Fixed "stat" bug on busybox's cp and mv. (Patch by Akira Yoshiyama).
  * Added Slovak localization done by Miroslav Vasko.
  * removed dependency on sysutils. It was there for "todos", but we now
    use "recode".
  * main Makefile: Added check for minix and exit properly on check for
    loop. (Closes #31688).
  * Added patch by Matej Vela for using Latin-2 charset on the
    rescue disk where needed.
  * Default to other host being DNS server. (Closes #27062, #31432)
  * Building "tecra" disks again, as it seems 2.0.36 still doesn't work
    on many of them...
  * Added ISDN devices to the base system. (Closes #28220)
  * unconfigured.sh uses echo, instead of a heredoc. (Closes #26510)
  * Accept a black value as transceiver type, for cards that don't
    support transceiver selection. (Closes #25377)
  * While installing kernel and modules, move /target/sbin/cardmgr to
    /sbin/cardmgr to avoid overwriting it while extracting base.
    (Closes #31099, #31348)
  * start renaming "dinstall" to "dbootstrap".
  * dinstall/partition_config.c: offer to run "cfdisk -z" if "cfdisk"
    failed (Closes #29153).
  * debian/control: now depends on make and gettext (undeclared before),
    suggests for documentation building promoted to depends
  * documentation: major updates
    - moved from linuxdoc to debiandoc, split HTML files up by chapter
    - dynamically use gettext messages where feasible, translating CPP
    defines to SGML entities
    - dynamic use of other build variables, such as architecture, kernel
    version, etc.
    - conditionally build different 'flavors' of documents based on the
    current build architecture -- see documentation/Makefile for more
    information on building architecture-specific documentation
    - Section "Welcome to Debian" added, "About Copyrights..." moved into
    this section
    - Section "System Requirements" significant updates -- all information
    regarding supported hardware moved here; do not pretend to list all
    suppported hardware, but rather specifically Linux-supported hardware
    *not* supported by the boot disks
    - Section "Before You Start" significant changes -- all information
    regarding hardware configuration or planning put here
    - Section "Methods for Installing Debian" sigificant changes -- update
    and isolate/document platform-specific installation methods and files
    - Section "Booting the Installation System" broken out from other
  * documentation: suggest 'hard boot' rather than soft (closes
    Bug#13268), update all disk names to reflect current status (closes
    Bug#31139), copyright updated
  * documentation/dselect-beginner.sgml: debiandoc'd version of the
    what was formerly deselect.beginner.8.html.in, updated for slink

dpkg-multicd - Installation methods for multiple binary CDs
dpkg-multicd 0.11 -> 0.12 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/base
dpkg-multicd 0.11 -> 0.12 into dists/potato/main/binary-all/base
dpkg-multicd (0.12) frozen unstable; urgency=high, closes=32068
  * Reset version to 0.0 if the package needs to be reinstalled (if it was
    removed or purged).
  * Preserve available file in $methdir so information won't get lost
    after a package was installed. (closes: Bug#32068)
  * Added support for loopback, thanks to Kenneth MacDonald
  * Removed two questions which are obviously answered 'yes' if a multi CD
    is detected.
  * Removed unused code from update routine
  * Removed restriction to three words as CD identifier

kernel-package 6.02 -> 6.03 into dists/potato/main/binary-all/misc
kernel-package (6.03) frozen unstable; urgency=high
  * This update fixes a release critical bug, and only includes bug fixes
    since the previous version in frozen, apart from making the package
    2.2.X ready (mostly EXTRAVERSION support). I strongly feel that this
    should be allowed in frozen, even in deep freeze.
  * Added an option arch_in_name to ask kernel package to embedd the sub
    architecture in the kernel image name (this reverses the default of
    always embedding the arch in the name). Note that only the image
    package _name_ is affected. fixes: BUG#31972
  * The new Power macs report themselves as Power Macintoshes rather than
    PwerMac's. Changed reg expression to allow either. fixes: BUG#32262

  * Increased column width to deal with big module names (nls_iso*...).
    (Closes #25172)

motifnls   - Files needed to run some Motif applications.
motifnls 2.1-3 -> 2.1-4 into dists/slink/main/binary-all/x11
motifnls 2.1-3 -> 2.1-4 into dists/potato/main/binary-all/x11

auctex (9.9o-1) unstable; urgency=low
  * New upstream version. (closes: #32122)
  * update-auctex-elisp: Removed emacs' option `-no-site-file', since we
    already byte compile stuff without it.  This should allow AUC TeX to
    make good use of the `custom' add-on package with `emacs19'; however,
    it may well have some nasty side effects on non-standard sites, since
    this way we're going to compile things in an (potentially) unknow
    environment, due to the fact we let `site-start.el' to be loaded on
    startup as well.  Well, we'll see; thanks to Martin Stjernholm for
    this fix. (closes: #30419)
