 dpkg (1.18.0) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Guillem Jover ]
   * Only trim trailing “/” and “/.” from «dpkg-query --search» arguments if
     they are a pathname, and not a pattern or a substring match.
   * Switch C/C++ code to use a new set of C locale character type functions
     independent of the current locale.
   * Add support for arch-bits and arch-endian dpkg-gensymbols tags.
     Closes: #630342
   * Switch perl code from legacy File::Path functions to new ones.
   * Fix perl uninitialized value usage in dpkg-scansources when the Binary
     field is missing.
   * Use dpkg-query instead of dpkg for --search in dpkg-shlibdeps so that
     the subprocesses get the correct admindir. Closes: #775258
   * Rework the Installed-Size field default value computation to make it
     reproducible regardless of the build system filesystem, and document
     how the value is computed and that it is just an approximation.
     Closes: #650077
   * Use strftime() instead of «date -R» in dpkg-genchanges, as the latter
     is not specified by POSIX and is not widely portable.
   * Warn on obsolete '<' and '>' operators in dpkg --compare-versions.
   * Trim end of line whitespace from dpkg and dselect config file parsers.
     Reported by Christoph Biedl <debian.axhn@manchmal.in-ulm.de>.
   * Do not silently eat a standalone ‘-’ in the libdpkg command-line parser.
   * Fix short-lived memory leaks in dpkg-deb and libdpkg. Closes: #769515
   * Fix «dpkg-deb -b» filename generation when the package does not contain
     an Architecture field. Regression introduced in dpkg 1.16.2.
   * Fix «dpkg --audit» to report missing and empty architecture fields.
     Regression introduced in dpkg 1.16.2.
   * Add support to dpkg-deb for reading the archive from standard input,
     except for --raw-extract which does not yet support it. Closes: #616614
     Based on a patch by Johannes Schauer <j.schauer@email.de>.
   * Add ‘.mailmap’ to the default dpkg-source ignore lists.
   * Set the SE Linux context on «dpkg-statoverride --update». Closes: #690361
   * Do not fail on dpkg-query -W and -l when multiple arguments match the
     same package. Closes: #588505
   * Change dpkg-maintscript-helper to handle symlinks and pathnames ending in
     slash. For the former error out, for the latter strip it. Closes: #771752
   * Support moving a conffile not being shipped anymore. Closes: #767003
     Thanks to Mathias Behrle <mathiasb@m9s.biz>.
   * Add a new dpkg-buildflags sanitize feature area:
     - Add new “address”, “thread”, “leak” and “undefined” features, all
       disabled by default. Closes: #760741
   * Do not accept unknown user or group names on «dpkg-statoverride --add».
     Regression introduced in dpkg 1.17.11. Closes: #775124
   * Normalize dpkg-parsechangelog command-line parsing, so that «-ovalue»,
     «-o value», «--option=value» and «--option value» will all be accepted.
     Closes: #693951
   * Add dpkg --ctrl-tarfile forwarding command for dpkg-deb.
   * Disable dependency checks on dpkg-buildpackage -S -nc.
   * Make dependency checks fatal for dpkg-buildpackage -S.
   * Update amd64 GNU cpu regex in cputable to match amd64 too, in addition
     to x86_64. This is required for FreeBSD.
   * Use badusage() instead of ohshit() for command-line errors.
   * Use the original template symbols file when diffing in dpkg-gensymbols.
     We should not create a new template symbols file, because the output
     might change (different sorting order for example) relative to the
     original. Closes: #773718
   * Do not leak kvm descriptors in start-stop-daemon on GNU/kFreeBSD systems.
     Based on a patch by Jeff Epler <jepler@unpythonic.net>. Closes: #779467
   * Switch start-stop-daemon to use a monotonic clock if available. This
     makes the timeout checks resilient to abrupt system clock changes.
     Suggested by Jose M Calhariz <jose.calhariz@hds.com>. Closes: #783014
   * Fix perl warning in dpkg-genchanges when parsing BY-HAND file entries.
     Regression introduced in dpkg 1.17.7. Closes: #781074
   * Use the checksums files list order when building the Files field to match
     the other Checksum fields in dpkg-genchanges.
   * Skip files based on the architecture from the filename in dpkg-genchanges.
   * Allow binary packages not found in debian/control in dpkg-genchanges,
     which could allow injecting debug .debs for example.
   * Annotate any non-deb binary descriptions (not just udebs) with their
     package type in dpkg-genchanges.
   * Remove outdated local copy of the Debian README.mirrors.txt file from
     dselect ftp access method, and print a message pointing to the current
     URL instead. Closes: #784966
   * Cleanup default dpkg-shlibdeps shared library directory search list:
     - Do not add cross-root directories (/<triplet>/ and /usr/<triplet>/).
     - Remove ancient multilib /emul/ia32-linux/ paths.
     - Reorder directory precedence to:
       «dpkg-shlibdeps -l» > ENV{LD_LIBRARY_PATHS} > cross-multiarch >
   * When upgrading, copy over the cached arch-qualified package name. This
     fixes wrong output when cross-grading.
   * Consider foreign packages ambiguous in need of an arch-qualifier.
   * Perl modules:
     - Rename and deprecate Dpkg::Gettext _g function with new g_.
     - Assume in Dpkg::Arch that the abitable is always present, and bump
       libdpkg-perl Depends on dpkg to 1.16.3, the version introducing the file.
     - Remove support for GCC_TARGET environment variable from Dpkg::Shlibs.
       This was a temporary workaround for very old gcc toolchains. See #453267.
     - Prefer multiarch paths to multilib ones in Dpkg::Shlibs.
       Thanks to Helmut Grohne <helmut@subdivi.de>. Closes: #772184
     - Enable sub-second timestamps in Dpkg::Source::Patch by using Time::HiRes.
     - Use TMPDIR instead of manually setting DIR on tempfile() call in
     - Switch Dpkg::Checksums from using checksum programs to the more portable
       Digest modules. Obsolete the 'program' property, and add a 'name' one.
     - Add support for $DEFAULT_TEXT_DOMAIN to Dpkg::Gettext, so that the Dpkg
       perl modules can always produce localized messages.
     - Fix OpenPGP Armor Header Line parsing in Dpkg::Control::Hash. We should
       only accept [\r\t ] as trailing whitespace, although RFC4880 does not
       clarify what whitespace really maps to, we should really match the GnuPG
       implementation anyway, as that's what we use to verify the signatures.
       Reported by Jann Horn <jann@thejh.net>. Fixes CVE-2015-0840.
     - Pass PATCH_GET environment varialbe instead of -g0 to the patch command
       in Dpkg::Source::Patch. This allows using non-GNU patch programs, like
       FreeBSD's patch.
     - Accept an %opts argument for the Dpkg::Control::Info constructor, and
       accept either passing a filename option as undef, or a scalar undef.
       Closes: #782019
     - Do not print on undef filehandle in Dpkg::Control::Info output().
       Thanks to Roderich Schupp <roderich.schupp@gmail.com>. Closes: #781887
     - Always sort the Dpkg::Dist::Files files list on output, instead of
       preserving the insertion order, which is not reproducible with parallel
       builds. Reported by Jérémy Bobbio <lunar@debian.org>.
     - Add new filter() method to Dpkg::Substvars.
     - Kill the process when reaching timeout in Dpkg::IPC::wait_child().
   * Test suite:
     - Check perl code compilation, warnings and strictness.
     - Fix dpkg-divert unit test to work on BSD «rm -rf» that cannot traverse
       directories with mode 000.
     - Fix dpkg-divert unit test to work when there is no /dev/full.
     - Skip test cases when there is no c++filt available.
     - Add test cases for Dpkg::Conf and Dpkg::Checksums.
     - Handle libtool executables in progname unit test.
     - Do not use a timeout when testing cat I/O, speeds up test suite by 5s.
     - Reduce timeout test from 5 seconds to 1, to speed up test suite by 4s.
   * Build system:
     - Bump gettext version to 0.19:
       + Use --add-location=file in msgmerge and xgettext commands.
       + Use --porefs=noline for po4a command.
     - Wrap file references in man page PO files with po4a --porefs=wrap.
     - Fix support for cross-building dpkg:
       + Assume a working C99 snprintf on SUS >= v3.
       + Do not try to run the va_copy configure check, just check that the
         symbol is available.
     - Check that HAVE_DECL_SYS_SIGLIST is 0 instead of undefined, to fix a
       build failure on uclibc based systems. Closes: #777044
       Based on a patch by Alex Potapenko <opotapenko@gmail.com>.
     - Use single suffix rules instead of non-portable %-pattern rules.
     - Pass CC to the test suite, so that we can use a non-gcc compiler.
     - Call AM_PROG_AR to detect the correct system archiver to use.
     - Pass -Wall to automake in AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE, not implied by foreign.
   * Packaging:
     - Remove old trigger related Breaks and Conflicts from dpkg.
     - Only use stackprotectorstrong when building dpkg with gcc >= 4.9.
     - Switch to debhelper compatibility level 9.
     - Name each public-domain license with a different name.
     - Add missing public modules to dpkg-dev package description.
     - Get rid of backward compatibility pseudo-tags from bug reports.
     - Install doc/README.feature-removal-schedule only on affected packages
       and debian/usertags everywhere.
   * Documentation:
     - Document arch-qualifiers for dependency fields in deb-control(5) and
       deb-src-control(5). Reported by Johannes Schauer <j.schauer@email.de>.
       Closes: #768842

     - Document the version when dpkg-deb --raw-extract got introduced.
     - Document dpkg --log format, add missing actions and describe the startup
