gcc-4.7-doc (4.7.2-2) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer.
* Thanks to Samuel Bronson for his work on this package. I kept him in
uploaders as credit.
* Removed DMUA flag, as it's being deprecated. Thanks to Steffen for
adding that.
* Improved README.source, and added a helper script, check_gcc_patches.
* debian/patches:
- Synced patches with gcc-4.7, 4.7.2-4.
- updated debian/patches/from-debian-gcc-rename-info-files.diff
- Added a patch, alpha-ieee-doc-clarification.diff, to state that
changes in from-debian-gcc-alpha-ieee-doc.diff are specific to the alpha
- Added fix-direntry.diff, to correct links for the info directory
file, and gnat-cross-references.diff, to have correct cross references.
* Updated copyright.
* Removed gnat-4.7-doc, as gnat-4.7 is not in Debian.

gcc-4.7-doc (4.7.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
[Guo Yixuan]
* Updated and sync patches with gcc-4.7 4.7.2-2. (Closes: #689211)
+ All *.texi files from upstream are added, so more documents can be
built if needed.
* Add myself to uploaders.
* Bumped policy version to 3.9.4.
* Added texlive-latex-recommended in build-deps to fix build.
* Fixed spaces in debian/rules.
* Updated git repo urls in Vcs-*.
[Steffen Moeller (sponsor)]
* DMUA flag added, Guo Yixuan is known to sponsor.

gcc-4.7-doc (4.7.0-1~naesten1) unstable; urgency=low
* Package documentation for GCC & friends version 4.7.0.
* Sync patches with gcc-4.7 version 4.7.0-1.
+ Had to refresh patches to get them all to apply; some were fuzzy.
2012-04-03 - Samuel Bronson <naesten@gmail.com>
gcc-4.6-doc (4.6.3-1~naesten8) unstable; urgency=low
* Build PDFs, at Robert Wotzlaw's suggestion and using parts of his changes.
(Perhaps "inspired by" might be more accurate.)
+ Instead of hard-coding the filenames into the xrefs, which would
(a) require rewriting rename-info-files.patch from the gcc-X.Y package and
(b) preclude using different filenames for different output formats,
we "simply" add support for @value in xref filenames to texinfo.tex.
Thanks to tex.stackexchange.com for the TeX hints and to Karl Berry for
accepting my patch.
+ Add the PDFs to our .docs and .doc-base* files, so they get installed and
registered as alternate forms of the relevant documents.
+ Instruct dh_compress not to compress them, because that often leads
to trouble with browsers and/or web servers.

gcc-4.6-doc (4.6.3-1~naesten7) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix the links between HTML manuals.
+ Use /usr/share/doc/gcc-X.Y-doc for all packages except gcc-doc-base,
since we can't use @xref between directories.
+ Stop linking to (e.g.) gcc-4.6.html; the file is named gcc.html!
+ Update the *.doc-base* files for the new paths.
* Unfortunately, many cross-references involving the GNAT *info* files
have been broken for a while (probably at least since the docs got
kicked out of gcc-X.Y proper for being non-free).  (This is arguably a
bug in the rename-info-files.patch from the gcc-X.Y packages.)

gcc-4.6-doc (4.6.3-1~naesten6) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* New source package name.
* Sync with gcc-4.6 version 4.6.3-1.
