‘daemon’ is a library that assists a Python program to turn itself
into a well-behaved Unix daemon process, as specified in PEP 3143.
This library provides a ‘DaemonContext’ class that manages the
following important tasks for becoming a daemon process:
* Detach the process into its own process group.
* Set process environment appropriate for running inside a chroot.
* Renounce suid and sgid privileges.
* Close all open file descriptors.
* Change the working directory, uid, gid, and umask.
* Set appropriate signal handlers.
* Open new file descriptors for stdin, stdout, and stderr.
* Manage a specified PID lock file.
* Register cleanup functions for at-exit processing.
This package installs the library for Python 3.

python-daemon (2.2.3-1) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Ben Finney ]
* The “Maria Rivoli” release.
* New upstream version.
Highlights since previous release:
* Improve performance of `daemon.close_all_open_files`.
* Promote the warning for `runner` module to a `DeprecationWarning`.
This has been an unofficial example module from the beginning, and
it will be removed in a future version.
* Refresh patches for upstream changes.
* Use HTTPS URL for copyright format reference.
* Update publication years in copyright notices.
* Correct grant of license in Debian packaging copyright.
* Declare “Standards-Version: 4.3.0”.
* Declare Debhelper compatibility level 12.
* debian/compat:
* Remove obsolescent configuration file.
* Change to current VCS URL for Debian packaging source.
* Update description of source package for current VCS workflow.
* Update Git-Buildpackage configuration for current VCS workflow.
* Declare build dependencies specifically for arch-independent build.
* Patch build system to remove build-only dependency ‘docutils’.
Closes: bug#891543. Thanks to Benjamin Drung for the report.
* Use helpful substitutions provided by UScan.
* Narrow the upstream version mangling pattern.
* Use UScan specification of upstream release signature URL.
* Use a null command for ‘clean’ during ‘Git-BuildPackage’.
* Remove ‘get-orig-source’ and ‘get-packaged-orig-source’ targets.
These are no longer mentioned in Debian Policy 4.1.4 and later.
* Override the Pybuild build system detection.
The presence of a Makefile confuses Pybuild.
* Declare upstream metadata in DEP-12 format.
* Change to a minimal export of the public key for upstream.
[ Ondřej Nový ]
* Remove specification of minimum Python versions.
These are now satisfied by all currently supported Debian releases.
* Use HTTPS URL for Debian mirror of PyPI service.

python-daemon (2.1.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* The “Sunnyur Rahaman” release.
* New upstream version. Highlights since previous release:
* Raise a warning that the ‘runner’ module is pending deprecation.
* Ensure custom types are part of the Python type hierarchy.
* Avoid a circular dependency for the version string at install time.
* Update UScan configuration to format version 4.
