 devscripts - Scripts to make the life of a Debian Package maintainer easier
 devscripts (2.0.0) unstable; urgency=low
   * New maintainer
   * Standards:
   * New version numbering scheme: major.minor.patchlevel
   * Changed the name of build to debuild.  build now just prints an error
     message and will disappear completely in the near future.
   * Correct handling of epochs in debc, debi and release (closes: #29855)
   * Use environment variables EDITOR, then VISUAL, and failing that,
     /usr/bin/editor in accordance with policy 5.3 (except that VISUAL is
     not mentioned there)  (closes: #28605)
   * Many modifications to uscan: it now compares version numbers
     correctly, using a Perl script which works in a similar way to
     dpkg --compare-versions, and it no longer has the extra 0 bug
     (closes: #19235, #19467); it no longer uses ncftp but only ftp
     (closes: #20968)
   * uscan now expects the watch file to explicitly indicate how to deduce
     the version number from the filename, by writing the filename as a
     Perl regular expression and enclosing the version number part in (...)
   * uupdate now allows a version number as an argument after the archive
     filename, allowing it to work in harmony with uscan (closes: #20278)
   * uupdate no longer tries to remove *.orig files, as the only ones which
     are created by GNU patch are those where the patch failed, and we
     probably _want_ to keep those (closes: #25774)
   * build rewritten in Perl (now called debuild); has a nicer handling of
     command line options (can accept a -r option with one of binary etc.,
     and doesn't need an explicit -r option if there are other
     dpkg-buildpackage options)  (closes: #27752)
   * debpkg rewritten in Perl as well
   * This package is now an Architecture: all package as there are no
     binaries left
   * debchange now uses the last distributions mentioned in the changelog
     as the default for the new version (closes: #30204)
   * debchange now uses the environment variables DEBFULLNAME and EMAIL as
     the uploader's details if these are set
   * release has been deprecated in favour of dupload, and now just prints
     a message suggesting the use of dupload instead (Closes: #29826,
   * The debchange command line options have been changed.  debchange no
     longer pays attention to the presence of a RELEASED file.  The -i
     option is for Increasing the Debian release number; the -a option is
     for Appending to the current version, and the -v option specifies a
     specific version number.  One of these is mandatory
   * Debchange now adds new changelog entries to the END of the current
     section, rather than the beginning
   * Improved logic of upgrading the Debian release number in debchange
   * Debchange does not supply a release number if there is an explicit
     version number provided
   * Now debchange works on a version of the changelog in /tmp and only
     overwrites the current changelog if everything is OK; this is much
     safer than the original version.  Also, all system calls have their
     return status checked
   * release and build now print error messages suggesting their
   * debuild now runs lintian by default if it is installed; there is an
     override facility etc., as described in the manpage (Closes: #18254)
   * Added Roderick Schertler's dscverify program to devscripts
   * Rewrote many bits of many man pages
   * debian/rules and Makefile modified to use debhelper
