xymon (4.3.28-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* xymon.postinst: Check for file existence before calling chgrp/chmod on
critical.cfg and critical.cfg.bak. (Closes: #924665, LP: #1819378)

[ Axel Beckert ]
* Update Vcs-* headers for move to Salsa.
* Override package-contains-documentation-outside-usr-share-doc lintian
warning for multiple cases of documentation about a directory.
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 4.3.0.
+ Install RELEASENOTES file as /usr/share/doc/package/NEWS.gz.
* Reintroduce MAKEFLAGS=-j1 again as I ran into issues with parallel
building again, but restrict it to override_dh_auto_build and the
server's install target in override_dh_auto_install.
* Fix URL pointing upstream mailing list posting in
debian/xymon.lintian-overrides. It was pointing to the wrong mail.
* Make lintian overrides for package-contains-hardlink more generic:
+ Catches future CGI script hardlinks.
+ Independent of which file is regarded as file others are linked to.
+ Reduces amount of lines needed in debian/xymon.lintian-overrides.
* Ignore squashfs mounts when checking for disk usage. (LP: #1798557)
* Add patch to fix old spelling errors found by new lintian.
* Add patch to switch example in analysis.cfg(5) from FSSTND to FHS.
Fixes lintian warning FSSTND-dir-in-manual-page.
* Fix existence of debian/docs together with debian/xymon.docs and
debian/xymon-client.docs by adequately merging the former into the two
latter files. Reintroduces some upstream documentation which was
missing for a few years.
+ Install docs/TODO only into the server package "xymon".

xymon (4.3.28-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Switch from prename/perl to file-rename/rename in
debian/xymon.postinst and debian/control.
* Downgrade rename usage to Suggests as the migration from "hobbit" to
"xymon" in path names won't show up in normal setups and is guarded by
an existence check.
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 4.1.3.
+ Switch debian/copyright DEP5 format URL to HTTPS.
+ Change Priority to optional.
* Drop several spelling-error-in-binary lintian-overrides. (No more
* Remove trailing whitespace from debian/rules.
* Set "Rules-Requires-Root: no".
* Change debian/rules to the minimal "dh $@" style.
* Bump debhelper compatibility level to 11.
+ Update versioned debhelper build-dependency accordingly.
+ Drop MAKEFLAGS=-j1 from debian/rules, parallel building seems to
work now.
* Fix lintian warning command-with-path-in-maintainer-script by using
"if which …" instead of "if [ -x /usr/bin/…".
* Fix FTBFS with glibc 2.26 by adding "#include <stdint.h>" to
client/logfetch.c. (Closes: #887633)
* Update lintian overrides of apache2-deprecated-auth-config for
additional parameter. Merge them into one override with wildcard for
the Apache directive.
