Using /sbin/tc (to configure Linux network traffic flow control) is
painful. This package attempts to reduce the pain with two new input
languages (one for humans, and XML ;-). The output is XML, or /sbin/tc
commands to configure the kernel.
The "tcsim" traffic simulator is not included in Debian.

tcng (10b-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Orphan the package.
* Add textlive-latex-recommended to Build-Depends, needed for url.sty
(Closes: #666336).
* Bump standards to 3.9.3 (no changes), debhelper to 8 (dh_prep).
* Fix CFLAGS and LDFLAGS being ignored, get them from dpkg-buildflags.
* Implement missing build-{arch,indep}.

tcng (10b-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Patch to make tcng.y compile with the new, more picky, version of bison
(Closes: #527530).

tcng (10b-2) unstable; urgency=low
* TeX transition: build-depend on texlive-latex-base instead of tetex-*,
this cuts down half a gig of dependencies (Closes: #450739).
* Non-stub manpage for tcng(8).
* Mention in the package description that the "tcsim" half of package is
not provided in Debian (and never was).  It would be nice to have it,
but porting it to modern kernels is non-trivial.
* Reorder #includes to make new glibc on amd64 happy (Closes: #451463).
* Add Vcs-Svn and Vcs-Browser.
* Properly clean ingress on -r (Closes: #451002).
* Configure differently for in-place use and for packaged installs instead
of using wrapper hacks (Closes: #439444).
* Add a watch file.
* doc-base section: net -> System/Administration.

tcng (10b-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer.
* New upstream release (closes: #290559).
- This does rename the main binary from "tcc" to "tcng"!  I'm not providing
a compatibility symlink, as the old name conflicted with Policy 10.1.
- Use "conform-exceed" instead of "action" (closes: #323301).
* Make configure use /bin/bash, it's crawling with bashisms.
* examples/examples -> examples (closes: #290558).
* Install all examples provided by the upstream (closes: #259571).
* Install the upstream changelog as changelog.gz.
* Suppress useless fw filters, thanks Henrique de Moraes Holschuh
(closes: #259949).

tcng (9l-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Move manpage to section 8.
- Closes: #249582 (this time for sure)
* Don't install example SCCS files.  :-/
2004-05-18 - Matthias Urlichs <>
tcng (9l-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Move tcc to /usr/sbin; it's useable mostly by root and tcc in /usr/bin
conflicts with package "tcc".
- Closes: #249582

tcng (9l-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Reworked pah resolution
2004-05-01 - Matthias Urlichs <>

* Depend on cpp.
* Set the base directory correctly.

* Initial Release.
- Closes: #240321
