inetutils (2:1.9.4-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Remove debian/tmp prefix from man pages paths in debhelper fragment files.
* Update man pages.
- Fix some typos in option names.
- Remove more obsolete options.
- Remove AUTHOR sections.
- Turn COPYRIGHT sections into troff comments.
* Ship dnsdomainname and hostname in inetutils-tools, namespaced with
«inetutils-». Closes: #561792
* Ship logger in inetutils-tools namespaced with «inetutils-».
Closes: #654664
* Switch from GNU Shishi to MIT Kerberos 5. The former has seen no upstream
release since 2013, and no upstream commit since 2015.
* Add libidn11-dev to Build-Depends.
* Workaround reproducible issue by forcing the path for /bin/login at
configure time, to cope with systems broken by the bogus
/usr-merge-via-symlinks deployment hack.
* Disable building upstream components that we are not going to ship.

inetutils (2:1.9.4-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Update man pages. Closes: #609934
* Fix /dev/xconsole symlink creation on kFreeBSD, which does not support
overwriting a symlink with another one, so we need to remove it first.
* Add spaces around make variable assignment in debian/rules.
* Bump Standards-Version to 4.3.0 (no changes needed).
2018-10-02 - Guillem Jover <>
inetutils (2:1.9.4-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix build on the Hurd, due to some partially disabled ioctls, by checking
whether those are defined, not just their related option macros. The Hurd
glibc is being fixed, but we'll use this workaround to get us built.
- debian/patches/hurd-partially-disabled-ioctls.patch: New patch.
* Do not fail to rotate /var/log/syslog if it is missing, and do not rotate
it if it is empty. Fixes a piuparts failure.
* Do not call the init script directly in the logrotate fragment, use
invoke-rc.d instead.
* Do not pass obsolete arguments to dh_installinit.
* Remove Replaces for long obsolete «-hurd» variants.
* Fix init scripts restart output, by using start and stop actions, and
calling log_action_msg.
