minetest (0.4.16+repack-4) unstable; urgency=medium

version 2.1. (Closes: #873324)
2017-08-23 - Markus Koschany <apo@debian.org>
minetest (0.4.16+repack-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 4.1.0.
* minetest-data: Switch from python-imaging to python-pil. (Closes: #866441)
* Build with ENABLE_SYSTEM_GMP=1 and use Debian's system library of GMP.
- Build-depend on libgmp-dev.
* Make sure that we really use system libraries of jsoncpp and gmp.
Remove embedded libs in dh_clean override.
* Update minetest.conf and add all available configuration options for
dedicated servers.
* Install minetest-mapper.6 with minetest-data.manpages.

2017-06-25 - Markus Koschany <apo@debian.org>
minetest (0.4.16+repack-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Upload to unstable.
* Drop dependency on fonts-liberation. It is no longer needed.
* minetest-server: Enable the postgresql backend.
* Remove overrides for dh_clean and dh_auto_clean and unneeded variables.
The override for dh_auto_clean prevented that the automatic cleanup of CMAKE
generated files took place.
* Remove minetest-data.lintian-overrides and depend on fonts-croscore instead.
Replace embedded croscore fonts with system fonts.
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 4.0.0.
2017-06-05 - Markus Koschany <apo@debian.org>
minetest (0.4.16+repack-1) experimental; urgency=medium
* New upstream version 0.4.16+repack. (Closes: #864060)
* Drop i18n.patch. Fixed upstream.
* Refresh rawlua.patch.
* service files: Use the default KillSignal SIGTERM again which
is supported by upstream now.
* service files: Pipe all log messages to /dev/null to reduce the noise.
Log messages are already logged to /var/log/minetest by default.
* Drop deprecated minetest.menu file.
* Install missing files and simplify the install files.
* Drop the manpages files in favor of install files.
Otherwise the dh_install --list-missing option will cause a build failure
despite the fact that the manpages are installed via manpages files.
* repack.sh: Also remove all jar files.
* Don't convert the lowres minetest icon to xpm anymore and remove imagemagick
from Build-Depends.
* Add an lintian-override for duplicate font files because fonts-croscore was
removed from Debian.
* Update debian/copyright for new release.
* Remove binary files in clean target which are not automatically cleaned
when building minetest twice in a row.

minetest (0.4.15+repack-1) unstable; urgency=medium

packages. Debian has its own copyright file.
