 debconf (0.9.10) unstable; urgency=low
   * Though I waited long --
     twelve days -- I must upload now.
     (And thus, miss testing.)
   * The long overdue
     backend database is here:
     the missing quarter.			Closes: #50437
     And so the version
     approaches 1.0 -- joy!
     Though more work awaits.
   * Db setup lore
     is in debconf.conf(5)
     in debconf-doc.
     You'll find it's layered;
     quite a flexible design
     (many thanks, Wichert).
     Users can setup
     their own debconf db's or
     use the global one.
     (If, that is, they choose
     to use the DirTree driver
     for the global store.)			Closes: #81574
   * To make this work, though,
     debconf must conflict with old
     cdebconf versions.
     The ones that themselves
     used /etc/debconf.conf
     as their config file.
   * And I had to write
     some transition code, too (bleagh),
     to reformat stuff.
     This should work better
     than past conversions, I hope.
     Still needs testing, though.
     So, it won't delete
     the old database files yet,
     'till I'm sure that's safe.
     Anyhow, reports
     of trouble in past upgrades
     are now obsolete.				Closes: #80940, #88256
     (Report new bugs though,
     if you must. I don't mind (much).
     Just don't send dups, please.)
   * All of debconf's code
     does sane temp file opens now:
     no more cruft in var.
   * The interface to
     has utterly changed.
   * I updated the
     Dutch translation (or rather,
     some Dutch guy did -- thanks).		Closes: #87493
     Other translations
     are probably outdated
     after these changes.
     Come to think of it,
     the Dutch one may be too; it's
     a week or two old.
   * Debconf must always
     be usable, so I made
     it pre-dep on perl.
   * The new db code
     fixes a db reload
     bug in -reconfigure.			Closes: #85873
   * Some bugs are fixed in
     the preconfigure program
     by this upload too:
     Overfiend, it makes
     two passes now, so scary
     shared templates will work.
   * Besides these changes,
     some mods to support the new
     apt slipped in somehow:
     is used rather than munging
     apt.conf by hand.
   * I gladly removed
     apt-extracttemplates: moved
     to apt-utils.
     requires that package now
     be installed, to work.
     A Reccommends is
     present in debconf, but, <sigh>,
     apt will ignore it.
     So you might have to
     install apt-utils by hand
     to get it working.
     On the plus side, though --
     porters everywhere rejoice --
     debconf is arch all!
     So maybe it'll
     get into testing one day,
     not many weeks hence.
   * And I think that's all
     the changes of note in this
     release of debconf.
     I'll stop sitting here
     in the dark counting fingers,
     and zinc off to bed.
