mtools (4.0.18-2.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Prevent an issue where mtools creates corrupted FAT entries for
directories when copied to a filesystem. This issue was reported upstream
at <https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/info-mtools/2014-08/msg00000.html>
and as the underlying issue is based on uninitialised memory also affects
the reproducibility of the output of mtools which s required for
reproducible Debian Installer images. (Closes: #837044, #900409)
* Use the SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment variable if set instead of the
current time of day as the default timestamp (such as when adding files to
an existing file) to make its output reproducible. (Closes: #900410)
* Use "Priority: extra" over "Priority: optional" for Debian Policy ยง 2.0.5.
