 dpkg (1.19.5) unstable; urgency=medium
   [ Guillem Jover ]
   * start-stop-daemon: Make sure that we get a meaningful errno on
     parse_unsigned(), so that the error messages always make sense.
   * start-stop-daemon: Add new fatalv() and fatale() functions and use the
     latter for system errors, so that we are explicit on whether we want to
     use errno for error reporting or not.
   * start-stop-daemon: Always refuse to parse a world-writable pidfile,
     except when that is /dev/null.
   * dpkg: Print the current set of enabled force options on --force-help.
   * dpkg: Parse and set new DPKG_FORCE environment variable for subprocesses.
     Closes: #666147
   * dpkg-statoverride: Add support for --force-* options.
   * dpkg-statoverride: Switch from --force option to new --force-<thing>
     options. Deprecate --force option which will be considered an alias for
     --force-all for now.
   * dpkg, dpkg-statoverride: Add new option --refuse-security-mac to control
     SELinux. See #811037.
   * dpkg: Clarify error on unknown system user/group in statoverride database.
     Closes: #920880
   * dpkg-buildpackage: Clarify the warning/error on short OpenPGP key IDs.
     Closes: #922039
   * dpkg-maintscript-helper: Restrict find for dir-to-symlink move to
     -maxdepth 1. Thanks to Ralf Treinen <treinen@free.fr>. Closes: #922799
   * dpkg-genbuildinfo: Add support for a new Build-Tainted-By field in
     .buildinfo files. Suggested by Alexander E. Patrakov <patrakov@gmail.com>.
   * libdpkg: Clarify field names in error and warning messages.
   * libdpkg: Optimize error handling. Move the error reporting outside the
     involved functions so that we do not need to call gettext if there is no
     error, which has a significant performance cost.
   * libdpkg: Merge nicknames table into fieldinfos, to stop penalizing the
     lookup of non-obsolete fieldnames.
   * libdpkg: Print a more accurate warning for Revision nicknames.
   * libdpkg: Increase the pkg-hash bins size to 65521, to improve hash table
     performance at the cost of a bit more memory usage.
   * libdpkg: Blank packages that are not-installed with unknown selection.
     Closes: #922410
   * libdpkg, dpkg: Print the dpkg database directory on access errors.
     Closes: #883700
   * Perl modules:
     - Dpkg::Vendor::Debian: Add support for merged-usr-via-symlinks tainted
       tag. Suggested by Alexander E. Patrakov <patrakov@gmail.com>.
     - Dpkg::Vendor::Debian: Add support for usr-local-has-* tainted tags.
     - Dpkg::Source::Package: Add a missing use Dpkg::Source::Format.
       Diagnosed by Ian Jackson <ijackson@chiark.greenend.org.uk>.
       Closes: #921031
   * Documentation:
     - start-stop-daemon(1): Document behavior of --pidfile security checks.
       Closes: #921557
     - dpkg(1): Document the unknown selection state. Closes: #922407
   * Code internals:
     - dpkg: Move SELinux fallback label to the SELinux specific code path.
     - dpkg: Simplify maintscript_set_exec_context().
     - dpkg: Move force options support into its own file.
     - dpkg: Do not hardcode the program name in the --force-help output.
     - dpkg: Switch force options from individual variables to bit fields.
     - dpkg: Switch from a char to an enum to track the force options types.
     - dpkg: Switch to set the default force option from the forceinfos array.
     - libdpkg: New benchmark programs and infrastructure.
     - libdpkg: Add new dpkg_error_move() function.
     - libdpkg: Add new dpkg_has_error() function.
     - libdpkg: Move status names from parse errors to arguments.
     - libdpkg: Use va_arg copy instead of the original on a vasprintf() call.
     - libdpkg: Include <string.h> in pager.c.
       Reported by Y <sevener@cock.li>. Closes: #922212
     - libdpkg: Use pkg_set_want() instead of a direct assignment.
   * Build system:
     - Check whether this dist is a release, based only on the version format.
       This will avoid having to do a two staged release to get a proper perl
       distribution tarball.
   * Packaging:
     - autopkgtest: Add file to Depends fields.
     - autopkgtest: Clarify behavior on root/non-root requirement.
     - Bump Standards-Version to 4.3.0 (no changes required).
     - Remove now unused assert usertag description.
     - Remove trailing whitespace from changelog.
     - Remove Origin and Bugs fields from control file.
     - Include a bug-script to report on tainted merged-usr-via-symlinks.
   * Test suite:
     - libdpkg: Fix unit test for file_slurp(). Closes: #920974
