nss-mdns (0.9-0.1) unstable; urgency=high
* Non-maintainer upload to fix broken dependencies in the 0.8-6.1 NMU.
* Fix Depends on perl and avahi-daemon.
* Bump up dependency on avahi-daemon to >= 0.6.16-1 for the auto-disabling
functionality on sites with a .local SOA.
* New upstream release.
- Does not export unnecessary symbols and fixes segfault in nmbclient
which had symbols with the same name; closes: #404266.
- Does not use the "search" keyword of resolv.conf anymore;
closes: #404534, #405327.
* Re-add a postrm to cleanup the mdns_* entries from nsswitch.conf but act on
package removal instead of purge to avoid breaking the DNS when the lib is
removed and to ensure perl is still present; closes: #406198.
* Document the changes made to postinst in NOTES.Debian and document the
history of the postrm as well.
* Updates to README.Debian; add upstream URL for troubleshooting.

nss-mdns (0.8-6.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload to fix a long-standing RC bug and to beat the
package into shape before etch with suggestions from upstream; thanks
* Configure with --disable-legacy, as recommended by upstream for security
reasons; the legacy mode might be offered in a separate binary package for
the corner cases where it can be useful; see full discussion in #393711;
depend on avahi-daemon as nss-mdns will not work without avahi when
compiled like this; closes: #399297.
* Only suggest zeroconf instead of Recommending it: even if it can act as a
nice complement to nss-mdns, it is intrusive and orthogonal to nss-mdns
and conflicts with avahi-autoipd; closes: #353131, #392590.
* Suggest avahi-autoipd as an alternative to zeroconf.
* Remove offensive comments in postinst and README.Debian.
* Document the history of postinst snippets in debian/NOTES.Debian to permit
handling all upgrade paths.
* Depend on Perl for the postinst snippets using the perl interpreter.
* Rewrite postinst to handle all upgrade paths.
- Does not wipe NSS configuration which matches the upstream recommended
configuration during upgrades from versions 0.8-4.2 or 0.8-5;
- Install the upstream recommended configuration for first installs and
upgrades from versions which did not automatically insert mdns in the
NSS setup (unless mdns is already setup); closes: #393711.
- Keep configuration intact when upgrading from versions which installed
the upstream recommended configuration.
- Remove whitespaces added in upgrades from version 0.8-4.2 or 0.8-5 to
- For upgrades from 0.8-6, attempt to revert the problematic "mdns_minimal
dns mdns" configuration and to install the upstream recommended
* Update README.Debian to match the above changes and a planned changes in
avahi-daemon which should disable itself if a .local SOA is found after a
change in the DNS settings.

concern to me -- I just doesn't want it to interfere with my otherwise.
Walter Hofmann on Joey Hess and Sjoerd Simons' period of maintainence
* Revert switch to CDBS.
* Switch to using a sane /etc/nsswitch.conf
so we don't break existing setups, or those over which the user has
* Revert "clarifications" as well.
* Recommend, once again, zeroconf.

installs and on upgrades from the previous version. Closes: #388864,
* Add postrm to remove mdns entries from /etc/nsswitch.conf when the package
* Local modifications to the file will be preserved accross upgrades.
