android-tools (4.2.2+git20130529-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Drop Architecture: linux-any field in the Source control stanza as that
breaks Launchpad and creates an useless delta with Ubuntu; drop it;
inspired from changes by Logan Rosen in 4.2.2+git20130218-3ubuntu1.
* Use uaccess in udev rules instead of deprecated udev-acl; thanks
Martin Pitt.
* Update udev rules to support more devices: 18d1:4e30 (fastboot on
maguro/toro), 18d1:4ee0 (fastboot on mako/manta) and 18d1:d002 (adb
recovery) and split rules in corresponding packages; from
4.2.2+git20130218-3ubuntu3; thanks Sergio Schvezov.
* Add Vcs-Git
* Drop bogus external/zlib include in makefiles.
* Rework the makefiles and build rules to use a builddir per component
we're building.  This paves the way to building adbd and adb out of the
same source, keeps the source tree clean and for some reason also fixes
* Various changes and patches to help with adbd build:
- Add patch to use glibc syscall() for reboot.
- Add patch to use linux/capability.h on linux systems.
- Add patch to fake Android init properties via env vars.
- Update create-snapshot script to pull more sources needed for adbd; pull
libhardware includes from libhardware repo and private filesystem and
capability includes from core repo.
- Add local makefile to build adbd
* On Ubuntu and derivatives, build adbd binary and corresponding package
with upstart job taken from Ubuntu package 4.2.2+git20130218-3ubuntu9;
this is disabled on Debian and derivatives because it's essentially a
security hole in the form of an unauthenticated remote root shell.
* New upstream snapshot 4.2.2+git20130529; this is mainly to pick up new
source files but also picks up a number of minor upstream fixes.
- Add build-dep on libcap-dev for sys/capability.h.
* Add patch adbd-use-user-shell from Ubuntu by Stéphane Graber to use the
running user's shell by default.

android-tools (4.2.2+git20130218-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Only build for linux hosts; adb / fastboot also lack an USB host
implementation for kFreeBSD and Hurd, and need a PATH_MAX on Hurd too.

android-tools (4.2.2+git20130218-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Only build android-tools-fastboot and android-tools-fsutils on linux
ports; the MINGW implementation could be used as a basis for a partial
port, but requires careful review.
* Always use $triplet-gcc as compiler to simplify rules; thanks Adam Conrad.
* core/include/mincrypt/* is under BSD-3; thanks Ansgar Burchardt.
