xnbd (0.1.0-pre-hg17-c29967ffe2f3-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
* Remove debian/xnbd-register.8 upon clean
* Switch to new versioning scheme based on hg versions. This versioning
scheme can be mapped automatically from a Debian version to a given
upstream snapshot. Hence a get-orig-source target is provided now which
can be used to retrieve orig.tar.bz2 tarballs.
* Remove `wrapper-daemonize.patch': Merged upstream
* Make package ready for dpkg 1.16.1 and inject build flags into the build
process. This means, xnbd is now being built with -fstack-protector and
other security related build flags. To achieve this, the Makefile has
been rewritten and successively been merged upstream.
* Add patch `install-xnbd-wrapper-ctl' which makes sure the upstream control
helper is being installed.
* Fix some smaller syntax error in the DEP-5 copyright file.
* Fix a bug in xnbd-register to make sure the server instance is started
first. This allows one to run both, server and client on the same machine,
being started from the same configuration file.
* Add `module-init-tools' to runtime dependencies to make sure, the command is

xnbd (0.1.0-pre+hg20110702-1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Arno Töll ]
* New upstream release.
* Update `README.Debian' to reflect the most recent status
* Ship `xnbd-register' a Debian helper to restore xNBD devices at boot. This
is a Debian specific improvement which is driven by a configuration file
located in `/etc/xnbd.conf'.
* Add `wrapper-daemonize.patch' which enables to run the `xnbd-wrapper'
command in the background and to shutdown upon request.
* Add `xnbd-common' package which contains startup wrapper for both,
`xnbd-client' and `xnbd-server'.
* Add patch `fix-xnbd-path' to reflect better the Debian installation layout.
* Build depend on Python helpers.

* Add DM-Upload-Allowed: yes.
