apt-build (0.12.45) unstable; urgency=medium
* QA upload
* Use per-repo "deb [trusted=yes] ..." instead of global "-o
Apt::Get::AllowUnauthenticated=true". (Closes: #659015)
+ Bump versioned apt dependency to 0.8.16~exp3 for trusted=yes
+ Automatically add [trusted=yes] to existing generated file
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/apt-build.list in postinst.
+ Use "grep -F" instead of "grep" to search for the whole "deb" line
in postinst to avoid the brackets around trusted=yes being parsed as
character class.
* Update Vcs-* URLs to current canonical forms and use collab-maint
repository instead of the apt-build project one's while being under QA
maintenance to allow write access to all DDs.
