xbomb (2.1a-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Updated standards version (no actual changes required).
* Fixed an oversight on my part which resulted in the high-score files
being left behind even after a purge (closes: #455057).
* As a consequence of the previous fix, the package no longer owns
/var/games/xbomb, which is now manually created in the postinst.
* Removed the "-s" from the install command in debian/rules, so that the
package can be built with the nostrip option (closes: #438288).
The normal package will still have the binary stripped by dh_strip.
* Pass "-g" to compiler so we have something worth stripping in the
first place. :)
* Updated min debhelper version to 4.
* Don't ignore Makefile errors during clean.
* Patch to man page to make it more whatis friendly.
* Change postinst to use "chown root:games" instead of "root.games".
* Updated FSF address in debian/copyright
* Added proper quoting to debian/menu.
* Made some minor adjustments to the package description in
* Added <string.h> to hi-score.c to pick up some required prototypes.

xbomb (2.1a-5) unstable; urgency=low

2001-02-05 - Chris Waters <xtifr@debian.org>
xbomb (2.1a-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Took dh_suidregister back out, since apparently there isn't going to
be a smooth upgrade path for packages using it. (closes:#84836)
Also made package conflict with older suidmanager, as required.
* Made app-defaults file into a conffile, despite the fact that lintian
(currently) complains, because policy is just about to change here.
