libnews-article-perl (1.27-9) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix spelling errors in the documentation, caught by Lintian.
* Improve the package long description and mention the specific Perl
modules included in this package.
* Switch to the DEP-14 branch layout and update debian/gbp.conf and
Vcs-Git accordingly.
* Switch to individual diffs in the 3.0 (quilt) source package format
instead of a unified Debian diff.
* Run wrap-and-sort -ast.
* Switch to from following the Perl
packaging team conventions.
* Use https instead of http for package URLs.
* Remove now-unnecessary source/options (forcing xz compression).

libnews-article-perl (1.27-8) unstable; urgency=low
* Avoid calling defined on an array in News::FormArticle.  This now
produces a warning with Perl 5.18.
* Move single-debian-patch and patch-header to local-options.  Continue
to generate a single Debian patch for maintainer changes, but do this
via local options not included in the source package so that NMUs and
other changes get versioned patches.
* Suggest default-mta instead of a specific exim4 package default-mta is
now the preferred virtual package to use as the first dependency to
indicate whatever the current default MTA in Debian is.
* Merge Build-Depends and Build-Depends-Indep.  This distinction is not
meaningful when only architecture-independent binary packages are
* Use xz compression for the debian.tar file.
* Update debhelper compatibility level to V9.
* Update to standards version 3.9.4.
- Rewrite debian/changelog in copyright-format 1.0.
2010-04-02 - Russ Allbery <>
libnews-article-perl (1.27-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Add missing =back commands in POD documentation.
* Drop dependency on libnet-perl.  This has been part of Perl core for
forever and doesn't exist even in oldstable.
* Drop version from versioned build-dependency on perl since the
version was older than oldstable.
* Update debhelper compatibility level to V7.
- Use debhelper rule minimization.
* Add Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser control fields.
* Switch to 3.0 (quilt) source format.
* Update standards version to 3.8.4.
2007-12-29 - Russ Allbery <>
libnews-article-perl (1.27-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Tell Makefile.PL not to create /usr/lib/perl5 and remove the rmdir,
which fails with Perl 5.10.
* Suggest an MTA for article mailing support.
* Use the recommended watch format and in copyright.
* Change Homepage to and move it to a real header.
* Update standards version to 3.7.3 (no changes required).
2007-04-28 - Russ Allbery <>
libnews-article-perl (1.27-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Move debhelper to Build-Depends since it's required for the clean
* Update copyright and watch file to point to CPAN since the original
upstream source page appears to be gone.
* Use a better method of optionally running make distclean.
* Add build-arch and build-indep targets, just in case.
* Update standards version to 3.7.2 (no changes required).
* Update debhelper compatibility level to V5.
2005-12-03 - Russ Allbery <>
libnews-article-perl (1.27-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Providing binary-arch in debian/rules is required by Policy even if
there are no arch-dependent packages.  Whoops.
