plain text using external programs such as elinks, html2text, links, lynx,
The programming interface is compatible with HTML::FormatText and
HTML::FormatText::WithLinks, so you can fairly easily switch how you
want the formatting done.

autopkgtest schema.
[ Salvatore Bonaccorso ]
* debian/control: Use HTTPS transport protocol for Vcs-Git URI
[ gregor herrmann ]

The former was a transitional package which was dropped from the archive
some days ago. Make the same change in Recommends as well.
Thanks to Adrian Bunk (Closes: #880787)
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 4.1.1.

libhtml-formatexternal-perl (26-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Set TERM=dumb for the test suite for robustness. (Closes: #801692)
+ remove build dependency on ncurses-term, no longer needed
* Build depend on libhtml-tree-perl for better test coverage.
* Create a temporary home directory for the test suite.

2015-06-14 - gregor herrmann <>
libhtml-formatexternal-perl (24-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Add debian/gbp.conf to filter out debian/ directory from upstream
tarball. Otherwise gbp-import-orig fails with merge conflicts.
* New upstream release 24.
Fixes "autopkgtest failure: TERM not set"
(Closes: #788639)
* Add (build) dependency on libconstant-defer-perl.
* Drop version from liburi-perl (build) dependency.
* Add build dependency on ncurses-term.
netrik (and HTML::FormatText::Netrik and t/FormatExternal.t) bail out if
there's no terminfo for the current TERM available which can lead to test
and therefore build failures.
* Update years of upstream copyright.
* Mention module name in long description.
* Add debian/tests/pkg-perl/skip-smoke.
Some tests may fail because of a missing writable directory.
