* Use the uscan magic URL in the watch file for the QA sf.net redirector
* Remove the old high score file on upgrade instead of purge
* Hack SOUNDDEFS to use /usr/lib, drop sndsrv symlink, clean all sndsrvs
- This also fixes the kFreeBSD FTBFS (Closes: #486113)
* Give the CREDITS file correct permissions, add symlink in /usr/share/doc
* Drop conflict on suidmanager as it was removed from Debian in 2003!
* Drop empty and unused /var/games directory from the package
* Honour noopt, nostrip, parallel=n in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS

2008-02-08 - Joey Hess <joeyh@debian.org>
xgalaga (2.1.0-1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release!
- Includes all patches made to the Debian package over the past ten years.
- Fixes sound disabling key. Closes: #149743
- Check return code when writing to /dev/dsp, which fixes problems when
the sound device is not available. Closes: #60266
- Limit -level to playable levels. Closes: #399987
* Added a Homepage field.
* Remove README.Debian, no longer relevant.
* Added a watch file.
* Updated the man page, removed undocumented options.
* Revert upstream's addition of O_NONBLOCK when opening /dev/dsp, breaks
sound in my tests.

xgalaga (2.0.34-44) unstable; urgency=low

xgalaga (2.0.34-43) unstable; urgency=low
* Take config.sub and config.guess from autotools-dev.
* kFreeBSD porting. Closes: #415664
* Create a xgal.sndsrv.oss that will work on linux and, presumably, FreeBSD
(untested). The source file is left at xgal.sndsrv.linux.c since renaming
source files in a Debian diff is too ugly.

xgalaga (2.0.34-42) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix formatting of --help. Closes: #399985
