This package includes the core Emacs documentation: the Emacs Info
pages, the Emacs Lisp Reference Manual, and the Emacs Lisp Intro.
GNU Emacs is the extensible self-documenting text editor.  This
package contains the architecture independent infrastructure that is
not compliant with the Debian Free Software Guidelines.  In
particular, this includes some of the GNU Emacs info pages, as they
are covered under the GFDL, and specify invariant sections.  See
http://www.debian.org/vote/2006/vote_001 for more information.

emacs-non-dfsg (1:26.1+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Merge upstream version 26.1. (Closes: 917004)
* Update debian/ for 26.1.
2018-07-29 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs-non-dfsg (1:25.2+1-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Move unversioned emacs packages from experimental to unstable.
2018-05-20 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs-non-dfsg (1:25.2+1-2) experimental; urgency=medium
* Given retirement, remove Jerome Marant from uploaders.
Thanks to Tobias Frost for the report. (Closes: 869328)
* Unversion the emacs packages.  Remove the major version from all
of the packages.  The flexibility provided no longer appears worth
the complexity given the more frequent upstream releases, and
backward-compatability across them.
* Stop versioning packages; change emacs25 to emacs.
* Update debian/compat to 10.
* Simplify generation of README.Debian.
* Conflict with older versioned packages.  Given the dissolution of
the emacs metaflavor and the unversioning of the emacs25 package,
conflict with all previous flavors (as emacsen-common does) so
that we can manage the transition without having worry about
interactions, common files, etc.
* Add debian epoch to match corresponding emacs package.
* debian/copyright: change compression extension to xz.
2017-07-01 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs25-non-dfsg (25.2+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Merge upstream version 25.2
* Update debian/ for 25.2
2016-10-10 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs25-non-dfsg (25.1+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/changelog: change the package name to emacs25-non-dfsg.
* Merge upstream version 25.1.
* debian: update control and copyright for 25.1.
* Bump the Debian alternatives priority to 28 for 25.1.
* Accommodate 25.1 DFSG content changes.  Several files have become
compatible with the DFSG.
* Generate doc/emacs/emacsver.texi from rules.
* Convert debian/copyright to 1.0; update for 25.1.  Explicitly
mention the unusual debian/rules copyright, which will be
addressed via #826347.
* Install etc/ files with mode 0644.
2016-06-25 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs24-non-dfsg (24.5+1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/rules: get version via dpkg-parsechangelog.
* Use debian/autogen.sed to generate debian/ files.  Create
debian/autogen.sed and use it to generate the relevant debian/
files, intead of perl and a make function.  That simplifies the
quoting, and makes it easy to see the replacements.
* debian/rules: if requested, build info in parallel.  Set up dummy
targets to allow building the separate top-level info page sets in
parallel (i.e. doc/emacs, doc/lispintro, etc.), and explicitly
specify a -jN to the sub-make based on the DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
parallel setting.  Otherwise there's no parallelism.
* Let dh_lintian handle the overrides file.
* Handle info pages via update-alternatives.  Install the unmangled
info pages to /usr/share/info/emacs-24/ and register them in
/usr/share/info/ via update-alternatives.  See
debian/emacs-common-non-dfsg.README for more information.  Thanks
to Norbert Preining for helping evaluate the approach.
* debian/.gitignore: add debhelper-build-stamp.
2015-06-17 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs24-non-dfsg (24.5+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Upgrade to upstream version 24.5 (shift from the bzr->git mirror
