   [ Guillem Jover ]
   * Remove an unused variable in dpkg-shlibdeps.
     Thanks to Niels Thykier <niels@thykier.net>.
   * Parse start-stop-daemon usernames and groupnames starting with digits in
     -u and -c correctly. Reported by Bodo Eggert <7eggert@online.de>.
   * Cache the result of «dpkg-query --control-path» calls in dpkg-shlibdeps.
     Based on a patch by Niels Thykier <niels@thykier.net>. Closes: #846405
   * Always use the binary version for the .buildinfo filename in
     dpkg-genbuildinfo. Reported by Raphaël Hertzog <hertzog@debian.org>.
     Closes: #869236
   * Fix integer overflow in deb(5) format version parser.
     Closes: #868356
   * Re-enable upstream tar signatures when building source format 1.0.
   * Make dpkg-deb --build sanity check the config maintainer script file type
     and permissions.
   * Add support to dpkg-deb for rootless builds, by setting the owner and
     group for the control.tar entries to root:root, and making it possible to
     do the same for the data.tar entries via the new --root-owner-group option.
     Based on a patch by Niels Thykier <niels@thykier.net>. Closes: #291320
   * Make dpkg-buildpackage error out if --as-root is passed without
   * Add support for rootless builds in dpkg-buildpackage by honoring the
     Rules-Requires-Root (R³) field.
   * Add new dpkg-buildflags --query command, which is like --status but in
     deb822 format.
   * Remove long obsolete dselect floppy method.
   * Remove traces of non-US support from dselect methods.
   * Add support for a new Build-Kernel-Version field in .buildinfo files,
     that can be emitted with a new dpkg-genbuildinfo --always-include-kernel
     option. Closes: #873937
   * Make dpkg-genchanges honor substvars in .changes Description field.
     Closes: #856547
   * Add support for source package Description and substvars. This new
     field in the debian/control source stanza will be copied into the .dsc
     file, and will also be used to initialize the new source:Synopsis and
     source:Extended-Description substvars that will be available when
     generating the DEBIAN/control and .changes files. Closes: #555743
   * Add new “future” feature area in dpkg-buildflags:
     - Add new «lfs» feature, to be used instead of the getconf(1) interface
       which cannot support cross-building.
   * Add new buildtools.mk make fragment to support build tools variable
     setup, for both TOOL and TOOL_FOR_BUILD variables. Not included by
     default from default.mk.
   * Make --uniform-compression the new default dpkg-deb behavior. Add support
     for negating the option via --no-uniform-compression.
   * Clarify subprocess error message by shuffling words around.
   * Print the package name on maintainter script errors. Closes: #877521
   * Fix capitalization of Debian in dpkg-deb output messages.
   * Add a policikit file for running update-alternatives via pkexec.
     Propose by Boyuan Yang <073plan@gmail.com>.
   * Perl modules:
     - Switch from Dpkg::Util to List::Util, now that the module in the
       new required Perl contains the needed functions.
     - Add a new "unique_tuple_key" option to Dpkg::Index set_options() to
       set better default "get_key_func" options, which will become the default
       behavior in 1.20.x. Prompted by Johannes Schauer <josch@debian.org>.
     - Mark ppc64 and powerpc as having gcc builtin PIE in Dpkg::Vendor::Debian.
     - Make the Dpkg::Substvars warnings output deterministic.
       Thanks to Chris Lamb <lamby@debian.org>. Closes: #870221
     - Remove unused POSIX module imports.
     - Use Errno module instead of the slow to import POSIX.
     - Remove unused Dpkg::Path from Dpkg::Vendor::Ubuntu.
     - Only load POSIX from Dpkg::Compression::FileHandle if we are going to
       use signal definitions, reducing the load time of many other modules.
     - Only load Dpkg::BuildOptions and Dpkg::Arch from Dpkg::Vendor-specific
       modules if we are going to use them, reducing the load time of many
       other modules.
     - Only load Term::ANSIColor from Dpkg::ErrorHandling if we are going to
       use colors, reducing the load time of many other modules.
     - Move color setup into report_pretty in Dpkg::ErrorHandling.
     - Move printforhelp initialization into usageerr() in Dpkg::ErrorHandling.
     - Avoid many function arguments in Dpkg::Shlibs::SymbolFile parse().
     - Avoid many function arguments in Dselect::Ftp do_connect().
     - Add new Dpkg::Interface::Storable option to disable compression support,
       so that we can load Dpkg::Compression::FileHandle only when enabled.
     - Disable decompression support for Dpkg::Vendor origin files.
     - Move file_lock() function into a new Dpkg::Lock module, to reduce the
       module load chain for several Dpkg modules.
     - Add support for new DPKG_NLS environment variable in Dpkg::Gettext,
       that when set to 0 will disable NLS (i18n) support in the Dpkg modules,
       and reduce the load chain.
     - Disable compression when using the default file in
     - Mark all missing CTRL_INDEX_SRC and CTRL_INDEX_PKG fields as allowed
       in Dpkg::Control::FieldsCore.
     - Complete field order for CTRL_PKG_DEB and CTRL_FILE_STATUS types in
     - Switch to use lowercase field names for all internal field name
       handling in Dpkg::Control::FieldsCore, giving a significant speed up.
     - Remove dependency on Dpkg::Checksums from Dpkg::Control::FieldsCore.
     - Do not execute code when importing Dpkg::Control::FieldsCore.
     - Use substr instead of a regex to match the first line characters in
       when parsing control files in Dpkg::Control::HashCore.
     - Merge build flag methods into a single _add_build_flags private method
       in Dpkg::Vendor::Debian.
     - Do not use an intermediate variable in Dpkg::Control::HashCore::Tie
       STORE method.
     - Expect deb822 stanza delimiters more often than OpenPGP Armor Headers
       in Dpkg::Control::HashCore parse method.
     - Optimize trailing space matching on Dpkg::Control::HashCore parse
       method, by trimming it just once at the beginning of the iteration.
     - Optimize trailing space trimming on Dpkg::Control::HashCore parse
       method, by requiring that at least one whitespace is present.
     - Optimize first character matching in Dpkg::Control::HashCore parse
       method, by storing the first character in a variable.
     - Optimize field/value parsing in Dpkg::Control::HashCore parse method,
       by switching from a capturing regex to split() plus a checking regex.
     - Auto-convert binary signatures to OpenPGP ASCII Armor in
       Dpkg::Source::Package when building source packages.
     - Switch Dpkg::Source::Package::V3 modules to use find_command() instead
       of ad-hoc code.
     - Call source format prerequisites Dpkg::Source::Package method if
       present. Addresses: #877688
     - Unify Dpkg::ErrorHandling subprocess errors with the ones from libdpkg.
     - Do not emit a perl warning if gcc or dpkg is not found from Dpkg::Arch,
       the code already handles the commands not being present.
     - Do not unnecessarily require setting the host_arch in Dpkg::Deps.
       Closes: #856396
     - Do not normalize args past a passthrough stop word in Dpkg::Getopt.
       Some commands pass some arguments through to another command, and
       those must not be normalized as that might break their invocation.
       Reported by Helmut Grohne <helmut@subdivi.de>.
