lirc (0.10.1-5.2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Revert removal of liblircclient{0,-dev} (Closes: #925477)
* Revert "Do not install conffiles in a dummy location" (Closes: #925066)

lirc (0.10.1-5.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload
* debian/rules
+ Remove rdfind-based dedup (Closes: #919843)
Using dh_installdocs --link-docs was investigated, and rejected due to
- limited benefits;
- interactions between lirc-docs shipping files under /usr/share/doc/lirc,
but liblirc0 being the obvious candidate due to dependencies.
+ Do not install conffiles in a dummy location
dpkg will, by default, not overwrite users' conffiles,
so shipping them in a different location is superfluous.
* Removed liblircclient{0,-dev}
They were obsolete transitional packages that predated the stretch release.
* Rename debian/post{inst,rm} to{inst,rm}
* debian/lirc.{postinst,prerm}: Recompile and remove Python bytecode as needed
Closes: #924158
* debian/control: Fix relationships on liblirc{,client}-dev.
This should be Breaks+Replaces, not Conflict+Replaces.
Using the former should ensure that upgrading from stretch works smoothly.
* debian/changelog: Fix spelling in v0.10.1-4
