xorg-docs (1:1.6-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release (for X11R7.6).
* Update xorg-docs.install for new files.
* Bump xorg-sgml-doctools build-dep. While not strictly necessary, the
new release brings a bunch of small nice improvements and fixes.

[ Julien Cristau ]
* Rename the build directory to not include DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE for no
good reason.  Thanks, Colin Watson!
[ Cyril Brulebois ]
* New upstream release candidate.
* Bump xutils-dev build-dep for new macros.
* Bump xorg-sgml-doctools build-dep.
* Use generated build/general/License.txt to update debian/copyright
since license/copying info is now in XML upstream.
* Update build system:
+ Pass --enable-docs and --enable-specs to configure (the default, but
let's make sure).
+ Pass --with-xmlto and --with-fop, building html+txt+pdf.
+ Add xmlto, fop, and w3m build-dep accordingly.
+ Add 01-disable-ps-generation.diff, no point in shipping pdf and ps.
+ Add 02-disable-automatic-size-detection.diff to pass --noautosize to
+ Add 03-tell-xmlto-to-be-quiet.diff since pdf generation tends to be
waaay too chatty.
+ Accordingly, make build-stamp depend on $(STAMP_DIR)/patch rather
than on $(STAMP_DIR)/prepare
+ Add quilt build-dep again.
+ Kill *.xml, no need to install them.
+ Switch from --list-missing to --fail-missing for additional safety.
+ Rework xorg-docs.install from scratch, installing html+txt+pdf
files, MAINTAINERS, and discarding platforms (the only ones
available aren't of interest for Debian systems).
+ Remove docbook* build-dep, no longer needed.
+ No longer pass --disable-shared, this option is gone.
* Update the symlink: Upstream used to ship in /usr/share/X11/doc,
symlinked from /usr/share/doc/xorg-docs/docs. Upstream now ships in
/usr/share/doc/xorg-doc, so keep /usr/share/X11/doc as a symlink
pointing there.
* Add myself to Uploaders.

xorg-docs (1:1.5-1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Brice Goglin ]
* Add README.source, bump Standards-Version to 3.8.2.
* Use updated xsfbs, closes: #538596.
[ David Nusinow ]
* Update xsfbs to 5693792171d885769e58dcccc053c08b11acd12a
[ Julien Cristau ]
* Make debian/rules parallel safe.  Don't enable parallel builds because
docbook is made of hate.
* Parse space-separated DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.
* New upstream release (X11R7.5).
* Build in a build directory, and autoreconf on package build.
* Drop the xspecs package.  The docs were moved to the individual modules.
* Change package section to doc.
* Remove Branden from Uploaders.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3.
* Drop build-dep on quilt, we don't have any patches.

xorg-docs (1:1.4-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Create a new xorg-docs-core package. This package contains only the
standard documents one would expect in an X installation. Currently
this is just a few manpages. This allows for a slimmer install by
default, while still maintaining the basic documentation every user
should expect.
* Minor cleanup of the xorg-docs package description
2009-01-19 - Julien Cristau <jcristau@debian.org>
xorg-docs (1:1.4-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Add upstream URL to the copyright file (closes: #512132).
* Upload with the upstream tarball.  For some reason this package had gone
2008-09-13 - Brice Goglin <bgoglin@debian.org>
xorg-docs (1:1.4-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Add /usr/share/doc/xorg-docs/docs pointing to /usr/share/X11/doc,
closes: #498721.
