This package provides Xapian Tcl bindings which should work with any version
of Tcl >= 8.1 (by using Tcl's stubs mechanism.)
The Xapian search engine library is a highly adaptable toolkit which allows
developers to easily add advanced indexing and search facilities to their own
applications.  It implements the probabilistic model of information retrieval,
and provides facilities for performing ranked free-text searches, relevance
feedback, phrase searching, boolean searching, stemming, and simultaneous
update and searching.  It is highly scalable, and is capable of working with
collections containing hundreds of millions of documents.
The Xapian Tcl bindings provide an interface to the Xapian library from the
Tcl programming language, allowing both indexing and retrieval operations.

+ Includes fixes for #625679 and Ruby Dir.mktmpdir() issue, so drop
patches for these.
* debian/rules: Use single quotes for substituting into debian/ to
stop the shell from attempting to expand ${python:Versions}.
* debian/rules: Use build-stamp and configure-stamp in the top level rather
than in the debian subdirectory - this is consistent with where other
packages put these files, and means dh_clean removes them for us
* debian/rules: Add build-arch and build-indep targets.

natty.  (Closes: #617149)
* python/ With Python 2.7, gc.collect() doesn't always
collect all the garbage, so repeat until no further objects are
freed.  (Closes: #625679)
* ruby/smoketest.rb: Older Ruby 1.8.x doesn't have Dir.mktmpdir() -
just skip the compaction tests for these versions.
* debian/rules: Don't force building against tcl 8.5 in experimental - that
was just for the transition to tcl 8.5 being the default.
