 bash (2.05-2) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Tighten build dependency (fixes #93509). Only an issue for upgrades
     from bash-2.05-0, therefore urgency=medium.
   * Remove changelog from bash package (also in bash-doc). Reported as
     #93446, #93454, #93455.
   * Fixed in bash-2.04, wrong example in report (#33822).
   * Documented behaviour (ulimit, #72898).
   * Use of redirection for #92324.
   * sed, awk, ... builtins should be provided by the specific package.
     there are other ways to make system scripts faster (ash, perl,
     python, ...) (#61648).
   * Unable to reproduce #34977 submitted for version 2.02.1, bug submitter
     didn't respond to inquiries. Closing ...
   * http://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/other-formats/html_single/Text-Terminal-HOWTO.html
     as explanation for C-s behaviour (#68387, not sure why I missed this
     for so long).
   * Part one of the report is Posix.2 behaviour; part 2 (cd-ing relatively
     from a subdirectory into a specified root-level directory) already
     fixed in bash-2.04. #65316.
   * Closing #13645. "The `-l' option should never have been documented, and it
     was a mistake to include it in the first place -- it screws up the grammar.
     Old Bourne shells and test commands had it because there was no other
     way to find the length of a variable's value.  Since bash has
     ${#variable}, there's no need for it.  POSIX.2 says, in the rationale,
     that implementation is irregular and that the shell supports it directly
   * Unable to reproduce #19211 submitted for version 2.01 in current
     versions (2.04, 2.05).
   * Close #2301, safe creation of temp files is documented in bash(1):
     "If the redirection operator is >, and the noclobber option to the set
     builtin has been enabled, the redirection will fail if the file whose
     name results from the expansion of word exists and is a regular file.
     If the redirection operator is >|, or the redirection operator is > and
     the noclobber option to the set builtin command is not enabled, the
     redirection is attempted even if the file named by word exists."
   * Fixed upstream in 2.05: #84743.
   * #76596: Bourne-style shells have always accepted multiple directory name
     arguments to cd.  If the user doesn't like it, have him define a shell
     function (see README.Debian).
   * bash already has enabled the system wide /etc/bash.bashrc (#82117).
   * #88223: Starting bash with --posix, or -o posix, or as `sh', does make
     the entire bash session posix-compliant (with the caveats noted in the
     info manual).  Posix-compliant does not mean `behaves exactly like
     historical versions of sh', nor does it mean `does only what is in
     the standard and nothing more'.
     Posix says nothing about brace expansion, so whether or not bash does
     brace expansion in posix mode has no bearing on posix compliance.
     If you don't want brace expansion, use `set +o braceexpand' or
     `set +B' or start bash with the `+B' option.
   * Lower temporarily severity of #92455, so that this version can move
     to testing. This bug exists in 2.04 as well, so we don't make things
   * Apply upstream patch 1.
