2013-05-23 - Agustin Martin Domingo <agmartin@debian.org>
wdm (1.28-13+deb7u1) stable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* wdm.pam: Ignore pam_selinux.so failures when the module does not
exist (e.g. on architectures without SE Linux support like
non-linux) instead of requiring it. Thanks Laurent Bigonville for
bug report and proposed change (Closes: #707231).

2012-03-06 - Agustin Martin Domingo <agmartin@debian.org>
wdm (1.28-10) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* debian/control:
- Change libpng12-dev Build-Depends to libpng-dev (Closes: #662545).
- Bump Standards Version. No changes required.
* Some changes to mimic xdm equivalent files:
- Xreset,Xstartup,Xsetup_0:
+ Use which function instead of checking hardcoded locations.
+ Copy Xstartup nologin stuff from xdm for consistency.
+ Use grep -qs '^whatever' instead of plain grep -q ^whatever.
- wdm.init:
+ Use lsb/init-functions.
+ Merge some of the xdm lsb/init dependencies.
+ Add status option.
+ Misc changes.
* wdm.init:
- Use a common wdm_may_update_wmlist function for possible
update_wdm_wmlist calls.
* Remove obsolete and unused init file and rename {dir,docs} ->
wdm.{dir,docs} for consistency.
* debian/xdm.Debian.patches: Remove this ancient and unused file.
* 03_autoconf.patch:
- No need to add -lXft, get-wings-flags --libs will (needlessly) do it.
- Do not try to filter out unneeded X libs, --as-needed will do it.
* debian/rules:
- Use dh_prep instead of obsolete dh_clean -k.
- Use --as-needed to avoid linking to unneeded libs.

wdm (1.28-9) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* debian/{rules,control}: Set compile/link flags to those
provided by dpkg-buildflags. Needs a recent enough dpkg-dev.
* debian/rules:
- Drop ancient and now unsupported --with-gfx-{incs,libs}.
Set pixmaps dir with --with-gfxdir.
* 03_autoconf.patch:
- Add test for wutils flags and libs, "wusleep" is now only
in libWUtil. Hopefully (Closes: #655800).
- Do not link against ICE,SM,Xft. xorg does not need it.
2011-07-26 - Agustin Martin Domingo <agmartin@debian.org>
wdm (1.28-8) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* Use individual quilt patches instead of monolithic 3.0 format
single patch. Fix lintian format-3.0-but-debian-changes-patch.
* wdm.preinst: Add debhelper token.
* debian/control:
- Bump Standards-Version. No changes required.
- Use dpkg architecture wildcard linux-any instead of hardcoded
negated list of non-Linux architectures  (Closes: #634732).
* debian/rules:
- Fix lintian debian-rules-missing-recommended-target build-{arch,indep}
2011-07-19 - Ralf Treinen <treinen@debian.org>
wdm (1.28-7) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload
* Changed build-dependency on libjpeg62-dev to libjpeg-dev (closes: #634642)
* Migrate to source format 3.0 (quilt):
- add debian/source/format
- drop build-dependency on dpatch
- drop all patching/unpatching from debian/rules
- drop touching of configure since quilt patching now does it for us
