libmpeg3 (1.8.dfsg-2.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Promote Petter Reinholdtsen as Maintainer, remove David Martínez
Moreno (Closes: #845290)
[ Helmut Grohne ]
* Fix FTCBFS: (Closes: #876253)
+ Let dh_auto_build pass cross compilers to make.
+ Fix the debian-build-rules.patch.

libmpeg3 (1.8.dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Add patch header-comment-fix.patch to fix a typo in the
mpeg3protos.h header.
* Move header files to /usr/include/mpeg3/ to group them together and
become compatible with Fedora which already place them there.  Adjust
pkg-config file to reflect the change.

libmpeg3 (1.8.dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Update to debhelper 9 support.
* Move source patches to debian/patches/ and package format to 3.0
* Update upstream source to version 1.8 (Closes: #430770).
- Split relevant parts of the patch used in 1.5.4-5.1 info new
patches alpha-largefile.patch and debian-build-rules.patch
- Drop patches to fix bugs #287422 and #729275, as these problems
are fixed differently upstream.
- Change shared library major number from 1 to 2, as the new library have
a new API and ABI.
- No longer have typo in Makefile (Closes: #374504).
- Repack upstream tarball without mpeg3css.c and the a52dec library.
Instructions for how to do this is in debian/rules.
* Add patch prototype-free.patch to make sure stdlib.h is included
before free() is used.
* Change encoding of debian/copyright to UTF-8.
* Update standards-version from to 3.9.5.
* Add missing dependency on ${misc:Depends}.  Thank you lintian.
* Adjust copyright file to document upstream copyright 2003-2008.
* Change debian/rules to use dh_prep instead of the obsolete
dh_clean -k.  Thank you, lintian.
* Enable hardening flags during build and linking.
* New patch fix-format-security-error.patch to make code buildable
with hardening enabled.
* Add homepage URL to control file (Closes: #749469).
* Reorder shared library linking rule to work with the --as-needed
linker flag (Closes: #633333).  Patch from Sebastian Carneiro and
* Use ${binary:Version} when depending on library from dev package,
instead of the obsolete ${Source-Version}. Thank you, lintian.
* New patch fix-video-alpha.patch lifted from the Cinelerra project
fixing pixel conversion macros, making sure the default alpha level
is max, not zero.
* New patch handle-hdv-m2t.patch lifted from the Cinelerra project
adding code to recognize *.m2t as MPEG files.
* Add Vcs-* headers to control file pointing to the collab-maint git
* New patch fix-format-strings.patch to correct format string problems
reported by the compiler because hardening was enabled.
* Add new patch compiler-warnings.patch to enable more compiler
* Add new patch missing-include.patch to include system header files
where they were missing.
* Add patch fix-fake-css.patch to fix inconsistent function signature.
* Add patch missing-prototypes.patch to include prototypes before
function calls.
* Add pkgconfig file for libmpeg3 to ease detection and linking.
* Add missing rules targets build-arch and build-indep.  Thanks
lintian for the reminder.
* Add myself as uploader.
