libffado (2.4.1-0.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* New upstream release. Closes: #887846.
Drop sconstruct.patch, applied upstream.
* Switch watch file to format 4.
* Remove obsolete
The last motivation seems to be @cdbs@, now unused.
* Remove debian/*.dirs, obsolete with recent debhelper.
* Delete trailing whitespaces in this changelog.
* Drop ffado.1 uninstalled Debian manpage.
* Pass Debian build flags to scons and show them in log.
This probably fixes #864717.
Enable all hardening flags.
Link with --as-needed in order to reduce dependencies.
* Build-Dependencies: drop dh-exec (looking for a maintainer).
Sort, drop autotools-dev, dh-buildinfo (see  2.3.0-1 and -3).
* Also drop licensecheck, a long warning about it being unavailable
is better than a short failure report.
* Standards-version: 4.1.4.
* Move ffado-debug manual page to the package providing the executable.
Break/Replace accordingly.
* Replace Debian manpages with upstream manpages when available.
Move manpages to a subdirectory to simplify packaging.
* Check and update the copyright file.
* Clean all *.pyc instead of only one.
* rules: always call scons with same arguments.
* rules: drop makeshlib version argument.
Redundant with "Depend: libffado2 (=${binary:Version}".
* rules: report failures (mkdir -p, rm -f report unexpected problems).
* Drop unneeded shlib:Depends.
-dev does not provide binaries, mixer is arch-independent.
* Switch to python3 and qt4.
* Improve generation of the debug library variant.
Split build and install steps again.
Avoid building twice during -indep builds.
Let the debug library be a Make target, avoiding two scons rebuilds in
case of error in later steps.
* Style. Drop debian/tmp/ prefix from debian/*.install.
* Move the debug library into ffado-tools package.
Almost no user will ever use the debug library without the ffado-debug
wrapper, and most people installing libffado2 loose space for no purpose.
The break/replace dependency already exists, see above.
* .gitignore: keep upstream .gitignore untouched.
* Lintian override explaining why ffado-tools:
cannot be fixed inside ffado.
* Minor fixes in dependencies.
An explicit python interpreter is redundant with ${python3:Depends}.
The 2.4.1~ snapshots should not conflict with themselves.
* Ensure AUTHORS and README will be installed with debhelper >= 11.
For now, debhelper automatically embeds them in every package.
* Remove obsolete parts of debian/rules.
DEB_CLEAN_EXCLUDE is older than the VCS.
Without it, "rm -f $(DEB_DESTDIR)" is not needed anymore.
DEB_PYTHON3_MODULE_PACKAGES is used for binary packages containing
python modules, not for an executable.
cdbs seems to create DEB_DESTDIR by itself.
cdbs knows that reverse-config should be executed before clean.
config.log scache.conf .sconf_temp are not created anymore.
* Install mixer icon for desktop file. Closes: #834140.
* Upstream has accepted to remove locale dependency from static_info.txt
for reproducible contents, and to install it into /usr/lib.
It may be installed into the binary packages again.

* Change maintainer address to
2018-02-25 - Adrian Knoth <>
libffado (2.4.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Update Vcs tags to point at salsa
* Backport debian/control to debian/
* Regenerate debian/control
