Debian package management static library
 This package provides the header files and static library necessary to
 develop software using libdpkg, the same library used internally by dpkg.
 Note though, that the API is to be considered volatile, and might change
 at any time, use at your own risk.
(new) libdpkg-perl_1.15.6_all.deb optional perl
Dpkg perl modules
 This package provides the perl modules used by the scripts
 in dpkg-dev. They cover a wide range of functionalities. Among them
 there are the following modules:
  - Dpkg::Arch: manipulate Debian architecture information
  - Dpkg::BuildOptions: parse and manipulate DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
  - Dpkg::Changelog: parse Debian changelogs
  - Dpkg::Checksums: generate and parse checksums
  - Dpkg::Compression::Process: wrapper around compression tools
  - Dpkg::Compression::FileHandle: transparently (de)compress files
  - Dpkg::Control: parse and manipulate Debian control information
    (.dsc, .changes, Packages/Sources entries, etc.)
  - Dpkg::Deps: parse and manipulate dependencies
  - Dpkg::ErrorHandling: common error functions
  - Dpkg::Index: collections of Dpkg::Control (Packages/Sources files for
  - Dpkg::IPC: spawn sub-processes and feed/retrieve data
  - Dpkg::Substvars: substitute variables in strings
  - Dpkg::Vendor: identify current distribution vendor
  - Dpkg::Version: parse and manipulate Debian package versions
 All the packages listed in Suggests or Recommends are used by some of the
Changes: dpkg (1.15.6) experimental; urgency=low
  [ Raphaël Hertzog ]
  * debian/control: Add the accent on my first name.
  * Perl API cleanup:
    - rename Dpkg::Deps dump() methods into output([$fh]), overload string
      representation ("$dep") to provide the result of $dep->output()
    - prefix public functions in Dpkg::Deps with deps_ and export them
      by default
    - rename Dpkg::Source::Compressor in Dpkg::Compression::Process
    - rename Dpkg::Source::CompressedFile in Dpkg::Compression::FileHandle
      and completely redesign its API
    - update Dpkg::Compression's API to use compression_* functions
      instead of granting direct access to variables, integrate
      there management of default compression
    - introduce Dpkg::Interface::Storable and update many modules
      to make use of it
    - update Dpkg::BuildOptions to provide an object-oriented interface
    - update Dpkg::Checksums to provide an object-oriented interface
  * Drop debian-maintainers from Suggests since it's obsolete, the
    corresponding keyring is in debian-keyring.
  * Merge support of symbol patterns in dpkg-gensymbols. Thanks to
    Modestas Vainius for his work (see further for more details).
  * Accept filename with spaces and colon in the output of objdump.
    Required so that dpkg-shlibdeps support such files properly.
    Thanks to Raphaël Geissert for the patch. Closes: #565712
  * When unpacking a "3.0 (quilt)" source package, tell quilt where
    patches are (to be) stored. Requires quilt >= 0.48-5 to work.
    Closes: #557619
  * Fix update-alternatives to not try to reinstall an unknown alternative
    when the link group is broken, instead switch to the best choice in
    automatic mode. Closes: #566406
  * Don't return duplicate bug numbers in Launchpad-Bugs-Fixed:.
    Thanks to Brian Murray <brian@ubuntu.com> for the report
    and the patch. Closes: #569618
  * Add $VERSION numbers to all perl modules. Closes: #465256
    1.00 and higher means that the API should be stable
  * While parsing diff's output, accept any sentence that contains the word
    differ (as specified by POSIX) to identify that binary files could not be
    compared. Closes: #570008
  * dpkg-gencontrol does no longer accept arch-specific dependencies in
    arch: all packages. Closes: #560071
  * dpkg-gencontrol no longer warns if a substitution variable provided by -V
    is not used (the warning is meant to catch unused substitutions coming
    from the file, those are package specific with debhelper). Closes: #557133
  * dpkg-gencontrol now indicates which package is concerned by the substvars
    warning that it displays. Closes: #566837
  * dpkg-buildpackage now supports options --source-option=<opt> and
    --changes-option=<opt> to forward arbitrary options to dpkg-source and
    dpkg-genchanges respectively. Closes: #566230
  * The -T option of dpkg-{source,gencontrol,genchanges} can now be used
    multiple times to read substitution variables from multiple files.
    Closes: #363323
  * dpkg-source now supports an option --create-empty-orig in formats
    "2.0" and "3.0 (quilt)" to auto-create the main original tarball when
    there are supplementary tarballs. This makes it easier to bundle
    multiple software together. Closes: #554488
  * dpkg-source supports long option names --diff-ignore and --tar-ignore for
    -i and -I. A new option --extend-diff-ignore is introduced. Those options
    can thus now be used in debian/source/options.
  * Generate manual pages for perl modules.
  * Introduce the libdpkg-perl package and clarify its status in README.api.
  * Update Standards-Version to 3.8.4 (no changes needed).
  * Drop unused lintian override for arch-dep-package-has-big-usr-share on
  * The rewritten Dpkg::Checksums deals properly with filenames with
    spaces. Closes: #572030
  * dpkg-source does no longer fallback to other source formats if the
    requested one is not usable. Closes: #557459
  * Modify dpkg-source to error out when it would apply patches containing
    insecure paths (with "/../") and also error out when it would apply a
    patch through a symlink. Those checks are required as patch will happily
    modify files outside of the target directory and unpacking a source package
    should not be able to have any side-effect outside of the target
    directory. Fixes CVE-2010-0396.
  * Also error out when the quilt series contains a path with "/../" as this
    can cause patch to create files outside of the source package due
    to the -B .pc/$path option that it gets.
  [ Guillem Jover ]
  * Handle argument parsing in dpkg-checkbuilddeps and dpkg-scanpackages
    in a way consistent with the rest of the tools.
  * Recognize --help in addition to -h in dpkg-checkbuilddeps.
  * Add a --version option to dpkg-checkbuilddeps.
  * Improve and mark more messages in writedb() to make translators lifes
    easier. Closes: #408525
  * Improve update-alternatives --display output to use two leading spaces
    for current link and slave information. Use single quotes for both “best”
    and the alternative it's pointing to. Closes: #549167
  * Refer to “half configured” instead of “failed config” in «dpkg-query -l»
    header and dselect package status printing for consistency.
  * Make “dpkg-statoverride --quiet” actually do something, and quiesce
    most of the inoquous warning messages. Closes: #403211
  * Make “dpkg-statoverride --update --add” fail if it cannot update the
    mode and owner of the file. This would fail later on when dpkg itself
    applies the overrides, so better to signal this earlier.
  * Add sparc64 to cputable. Thanks to Aurelien Jarno <aurel32@debian.org>.
    Closes: #560010
  * Do not allow diverting a file to itself, which makes the file to get
    removed. Closes: #312206
  * Make the check for duplicate fields in a stanza in libdpkg actually work,
    which now makes it fatal, as was intended originally. This should not
    cause problems for anything using dpkg-dev to build packages as those
    are already fatal on that case.
  * Add new deb-split(5) man page.
  * Fix misspellings of “explicitly” all over the place.
  * Normalize ar member names when reading (removing trailing spaces and
    slash), this allows deb-split packages be created with GNU ar.
  * Validate compression level on dpkg-deb argument parsing.
  * Fix error handling, clean up and refactor compression code.
    Thanks to Jonathan Nieder for several of the patches.
  * Do not print unambiguous epoch on dpkg file overwrite error.
  * Rename Dpkg::IPC::fork_and_exec() to Dpkg::IPC::spawn().
  * Change dpkg-dev to Depend on perl instead of perl5 and perl-modules.
  * Fix small memory leaks related to scandir() in dpkg-deb and libdpkg.
  * Fix dpkg-query and dpkg-trigger to actually print a version on --version.
  * Always spawn a new shell on conffile prompt, instead of supporting
    self backgrounding, remove DPKG_NO_TSTP environment variable support.
    Closes: #38334
    variables when spawning a shell for conffile examination. Closes: #60329
    Thanks to Daniel Martin <Daniel.Martin@jhu.edu> for the idea.
  * Add support for disabling update-alternatives at configure time using
  * Add support for disabling install-info at configure time using
  * Update debian/copyright.
  * Use Debian instead of ‘Debian GNU/Linux’ when referring to the
  * On dpkg --no-act with --install, --unpack or --record-avail, and
    dpkg-deb --info or --field use mkdtemp() to create a temporary directory
    instead of insecure tempnam() or tmpnam() functions.
  * Remove --license and --licence options from tools.
  * Securely remove newly installed files when rolling-back a failed unpack.
  * Change default lzma compression level from 9 to 6.
    Thanks to Jonathan Nieder for the initial patch.
  * Add support for xz compressed data.tar member of binary packages. Add
    xz-utils to dpkg's Pre-Depends. Closes: #542160
    Thanks to Jonathan Nieder for the initial patch.
  * Use xz command to handle lzma compressed files in dpkg and dpkg-dev.
    This removes the lzma package from both dpkg and dpkg-dev dependencies.
  * Do not set PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR in dpkg-buildpackage when cross-building.
    The proper solution to this is to let the build system choose the
    appropriate pkg-config binary for the build or host system in the same
    way pkg.m4 is handling it now. Closes: #551118
  * Dynamically link against all external libraries. This includes libbz2
    and zlib for dpkg-deb and and libselinux for dpkg on GNU/Linux.
  * Mark the libdpkg.a API as volatile and require any possible users to set
    LIBDPKG_VOLATILE_API to acknowledge that fact.
  * Add a new libdpkg-dev package with the headers and the static library,
    although its API should be considered volatile.
  * Reorganize the doc contents that goes into each package:
    - README.multicd only in dselect.
    - README.api only in development packages, dpkg-dev and libdpkg-dev.
    - triggers.txt only in dpkg-dev.
  * Move source.lintian-overrides to debian/source/lintian-overrides.
  * Switch SE Linux support to explicitly set path context. This fixes the
    mislabeling of files under <admindir> on conffile extraction or on unpack
    errors, due to improper default context restoration. Closes: #498438
  * Use FIEMAP when available (on Linux based systems) to sort the .list
    files loading order. With a cold cache it improves up to a 70%.
    Thanks to Morten Hustveit <morten@debian.org>.
  * When FIEMAP is not available use posix_fadvise() to start preloading the
    .list files before loading them. With a cold cache it improves up to 40%.
    Thanks to Stefan Fritsch <sf@sfritsch.de>. Closes: #557560
  * Call fsync(2) after writting files on disk, to get the atomicity
    guarantees when doing rename(2). Based on a patch by
    Jean-Baptiste Lallement <jeanbaptiste.lallement@gmail.com>.
    Closes: #430958
  * Call fsync(2) on database directories after creating, renaming or
    unlinking files, to guarantee the new file entry is correctly listed
    in the directory. Base on a patch by
    Jean-Baptiste Lallement <jeanbaptiste.lallement@gmail.com>.
  * Document in the man page the effects of setting TMPDIR for dpkg and
    dpkg-deb, HOME for dselect and dpkg and PAGER for dpkg. Closes: #572836
  * Document the exit codes for dpkg-query. Closes: #571798
  * Document “dpkg-query -l” abbreviated state information in the man page.
    Based on a patch by Marc-Jano Knopp <pub_br_debian.org@marc-jano.de>.
    Closes: #383869
  * Honour LINGUAS environment variable when installing translated man pages.
  * Allow disabling at configure time Unicode ncurses support for dselect.
    Based on a patch by Yuri Vasilevski <yvasilev@gentoo.org>.
  [ Modestas Vainius ]
  * Implement symbol patterns (Closes: #563752). From now on, it is possible to
    match multiple symbols with a single entry in the symbol file template.
    While the concept is not new (wildcards also match multiple symbols),
    patterns cover much more ground and are a lot more flexible. Together with
    the framework, 3 basic pattern types are supported:
    - c++ - matching C++ symbols by their demangled name (as emitted by
    - symver - matching by symbol version. It replaces the wildcards feature
      which is still supported for backwards compatibility but is reimplemented
      on top of the new framework;
    - regex - matching symbol names with perl regular expression.
    Basic patterns may be combined where it makes sense.
  * As a positive side effect of the new symbol patterns implementation,
    patterns are now treated like normal symbols whenever possible, e.g. a
    pattern is MISSING if it does not match anything. As a result,
    dpkg-gensymbols is now able to detect NEW/MISSING symbols when patterns are
    present in the symbol file (Closes: #541464). Please note, however, that
    there is no way to detect symbol changes in the pattern match sets.
  * Add source version to the dpkg-gensymbols diff label, reformat it according
    to the rules of dpkg-name.
  * Add -a<arch> option to dpkg-gensymbols.
  * Add -q option to dpkg-gensymbols. -c0 will never fail but still generate a
    diff. Use -c0 -q to keep dpkg-gensymbols completely quiet as before
    (Closes: #568228).
  [ Jonathan Nieder ]
  * Fix a file handle leak in “dpkg-deb --info”. Thanks to Raphael Geissert
    for the report and patch.
  [ Helge Kreutzmann ]
  * Add dpkg-gensymbols.1 to the translatable man page set.
