This package provides the man command, the primary way of examining the
on-line help files (manual pages). Other utilities provided include the
whatis and apropos commands for searching the manual page database, the
manpath utility for determining the manual page search path, and the
maintenance utilities mandb, catman and zsoelim. man-db uses the groff
suite of programs to format and display the manual pages.

* Remove redundant condition in cron.daily script (closes: #918967).
* Update Homepage and debian/copyright Source to use HTTPS.
* Add --quiet to systemd mandb invocation (closes: #920628).
2019-01-06 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
man-db (2.8.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
- Fix handling of \- in RHS of NAME section (closes: #913351).

2018-11-05 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
man-db (2.8.4-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Remove dh_builddeb override to use xz compression; this has been the
default since dpkg 1.17.0.
* Stop building with V=1; debhelper configures with --disable-silent-rules
as of 9.20150501.
* AppArmor:
- Allow man to talk to Unix sockets, so that it can spawn X-based
subprocesses.
- Fix syntax to allow sending signals to related profiles.
- Allow sending signals to the same profile.
2018-07-30 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
man-db (2.8.4-2) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Dimitri John Ledkov ]
* Adapt apparmor profile for usrmerge. LP: #1784023
2018-07-27 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
man-db (2.8.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
- Check for mandb_nfmt and mandb_tfmt in the manual page hierarchy as
documented, not in the current directory (closes: #901007).
* Remove long-obsolete Conflicts on suidmanager.
* Adjust git-dpm tagging configuration.
* Explicitly declare "Rules-Requires-Root: binary-targets" (due to
installing /var/cache/man with ownership man:man).
* Remove syntax-error-in-debian-changelog Lintian override;
Parse::DebianChangelog seems to have got smarter about detecting old
changelog formats since I added that.
2018-04-07 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
man-db (2.8.3-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* AppArmor: Allow man_filter to read from anywhere, since there are no
real restrictions on where manual page files may be, and the worst this
can do is feed data to the invoking man process.
* AppArmor: Allow man and its related profiles to exchange signals.
2018-04-05 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
man-db (2.8.3-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
- sandbox: Allow kill and tgkill unconditionally (closes: #892309).
- sandbox: Allow sibling architectures on x86/x86_64/x32 (closes:
#891267).
- man: Only change directory in child processes (closes: #894792).
* Switch debian/watch to HTTPS.
2018-02-28 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
man-db (2.8.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release:
- sandbox: Work around snoopy (closes: #890861).
- sandbox: Handle qemu-user returning EFAULT (closes: #891109).
* Use HTTPS form of copyright-format URL.
2018-02-09 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
man-db (2.8.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* Use stacked profiles for subprocesses so that AppArmor realises that
they constitute a reduction in privileges and allows the transition even
after a seccomp filter has been installed.
* Build with seccomp again, now that it works in conjunction with
AppArmor.
* Breaks/Replaces manpages-tr (<< 1.0.5.1-3) (closes: #889805).
2018-02-05 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
man-db (2.8.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Build without seccomp for now, until I work out how to make it play well
with AppArmor on recent kernels (closes: #889608, #889626).
