This package contains the libraries and header files needed to develop
programs which make use of extended attributes.  For Linux programs,
the documented system call API is the recommended interface, but an
SGI IRIX compatibility interface is also provided.
Currently most filesystems support extended attributes.
The SGI IRIX compatibility API built above the Linux system calls is
used by programs such as xfsdump(8), xfsrestore(8) and xfs_fsr(8).

attr (1:2.4.48-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Replace gettext with autopoint in autopkgtest Depends fields.

attr (1:2.4.48-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Run «autoreconf -f -i» in autopkgtests to handle modified build system
sources due to patching, triggering regeneration of the build system,
and failing because the exact tool versions are not available.

attr (1:2.4.48-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Run upstream test suite separately from the build, so that we can ignore
just the test suite errors. This was in practice not a problem as we then
call the install target, so we'd catch errors later on, but still wrong.
* Remove now unnecessary debian/clean file.
* Fix silent and verbose builds:
- Only pass VERBOSE=1 to the check target where it is relevant.
- Pass --disable-silent-rules to configure only when terse is not present.
* Remove spurious escaped newline in «make install».
* Uniformize assignment of --build and --host options for configure.
* Reorder .PHONY entries.
* Add minimally required build dependencies to autopkgtest Depends fields.
* Rename attr-autoconf-version-check.patch to
build-require-autoconf-version.patch and improve its description fields.

* New upstream release.
- Add upstream signing key, and modify debian/watch file to fetch and
check orig tarball signatures.
- Refresh patches:

+ 12-643587-attr-autoconf-version-check.patch: Update, rename to
- Make the syscall wrappers be Linux-specific again.
+ syscalls-linux.patch: New patch.
- Upstream removed the <attr/xattr.h> header, put a compat header back
that uses <sys/xattr.h> for the heavy lifting. Closes: #782428
+ compat-xattr-header.patch: New patch.
- Pull patches from upstream git master:
+ 0001-test-escape-left-brace-in-a-regex-in-test-run.patch

- Update attr_copy_action in symbols file for newly assigned version node.
- Update minimum version for shlibs file.
- Update debian/rules to handle the modernized upstream build system.
- Update autopkgtests to handle the modernized upstream build system.
- Update debian/copyright file.
- The package should build now on musl. Closes: #782830
* Include new pkg-config file.
* Include /etc/xattr.conf in shared library package, required by
attr_copy_action() function.
* Add Build-Depends-Package field to the symbols file.
* Enable all hardening build flags.
* Remove Multi-Arch fields from udeb packages.
* Mark autopkgtest tests as flaky instead of superficial, they do not cope
well with the Debian buildd environment.
* Add build-essential to autopkgtest Depends fields.
* Remove trailing whitespace and blank lines from debian/copyright.
* Fix several typos in the man pages.
