prelink (0.0.20131005-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release, matching Fedora version 0.5.0-3. (Mostly just
s390x fixes.)
* Change to my personal email address, as the previous one no longer
* Acknowledge previous NMU. Thanks, Laurent!
* Convert packaging to dh, and bump Debhelper compatibility level.
- Disable tests for now, as they are broken and were previously
commented out.
- Move execstack from /usr/sbin to /usr/bin, following upstream
packaging (Closes: #627855).
* debian/prelink.postrm: Delete logs and caches on purge
(Closes: #668724), and not on remove.
* debian/NEWS: Remove, it's ten years old.
* debian/patches/hurd.patch: Build on HURD, where MAXSYMLINKS doesn't
exist (Closes: #738644). Thanks to Svante Signell for the patch.
* debian/control: Bump standards version to 3.9.8 (no changes
2015-09-25 - Laurent Bigonville <bigon@debian.org>
prelink (0.0.20130503-1.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Add the Built-Using field (Closes: #769350)
* Build-depends against libelf-dev instead of libelfg0-dev (Closes: #769414)
* Drop debian/patches/ftbfs-no-copy-dt-needed.patch, this is not needed
anymore and it was an issue in libselinux in the first place anyway
2014-02-17 - Geoffrey Thomas <gthomas@mokafive.com>
prelink (0.0.20130503-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Against my better judgement, adopt the package (Closes: #657967).
* New upstream release, version 0.5.0 according to Fedora's numbering
(Closes: #736947).
* Bump standards version to (no changes needed).
* In debian/patches:
- prelink.h.patch: Dropped; not needed except for truly ancient libc
versions (2003ish).
- init.patch, timestamp.patch: Refreshed.
- r187.patch, r188.patch, r189.patch, r190.patch: Dropped; part of
new upstream release.
- open-with-mode.patch: Dropped; fixed in upstream r176
"m4/libelf.m4: Resync with version of code in aclocal.m4."
- ts.patch, prelink.8.patch, cache.patch: Dropped; they were
previously commented out in debian/patches. ts skipped some tests
and the other two were fixed upstream.
- dso.c.patch, layout.c.patch, ts2.patch: Deleted; they were
unreferenced in debian/patches and look like old debugging stuff.
* debian/prelink.spec: Sync with Fedora -- this is used in generating
the upstream changelog.
* debian/copyright: Convert to machine-readable format 1.0 (aka DEP-5).
* Add a debian/watch file.
2013-08-10 - Andreas Moog <amoog@ubuntu.com>
prelink (0.0.20090925-8) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* Add debian/patches/ftbfs-no-copy-dt-needed.patch: (Closes: #713628)
- Fixes a FTBFS with The --no-copy-dt-needed linker flag which requires
that all needed libraries are explicitly added to the linker command
2013-05-08 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
prelink (0.0.20090925-7) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* m4/libelf.m4: Fixed open() call to include mode, as some gcc
configurations disallow using O_CREAT without it.  On Ubuntu, this
caused an FTBFS on all architectures in prelink's check for proper
libelf support (thanks, Ben Collins).
* Convert to dh-autoreconf, dropping manual autotools update patches.
* Convert to 3.0 (quilt) source format.
* Add ${misc:Depends}.
* Add build-arch and build-indep targets to debian/rules.
* Override statically-linked-binary Lintian error; prelink.bin must remain
statically linked so that e.g. it doesn't try to operate on itself.
2012-06-11 - Michael Gilbert <mgilbert@debian.org>
prelink (0.0.20090925-6) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* Use system libtool
* Remove debian/patches/Makefile.in.dpatch, which is now automatically
* Switch back to libelfg0 (since it is up to date on all architectures).

prelink (0.0.20090925-5) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* Use libelf instead of libelfg0.
