monsterz (0.7.1-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Team upload.
* debian/control:
- Use canonical VCS-URI.
- Add Breaks and Replaces relation to monsterz-data. This prevents that
monsterz fails to upgrade. (Closes: #710733)
- monsterz: Tighten dependency on monsterz-data (>= ${source:Version}).
* Bump compatibility level to 9 and require debhelper >= 9 for automatic
hardening build flags.
* Use hardening-wrapper to harden the monsterz binary completely hence we can
drop 040_makefile_cflags.patch.
* Fix lintian issue copyright-refers-to-symlink-license and point to GPL-2
and LGPL-2.1 licenses.
* Add preinst script because dpkg does not replace symlinks with directories
and vice versa, therefore maintainer scripts need to be used.
