Obsolete compatibility package of Autoconf 2.13.  For use only with
packages that cannot easily be updated to use Autoconf 2.50+.
This package provides compatibility wrappers for autoconf,
autoheader, and autoreconf that attempt to automatically choose which
version of Autoconf to use, based on some simple heuristics.  For
information on these heuristics or how to force use of a particular
Autoconf version, see /usr/share/doc/autoconf2.13/README.Debian.gz.

autoconf2.13 (2.13-63) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/control: No longer recommend automake1.4, because it is going
away.  Closes: #752291.  Thanks to Ansgar Burchardt
<> for reporting this bug.
* Use "makeinfo --html" instead of texi2html, because texi2html is
- debian/control: Remove build dependency on texi2html.
- debian/rules: Use makeinfo --html, and remove use of "fixlinks"
script, which is no longer needed.
- debian/fixlinks: Removed.
* debian/lintian-overrides: Rename debian/source.lintian-overrides since
it is for the source package.

autoconf2.13 (2.13-62) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/wrapper: Interpret nonoption arguments to "autoreconf" as
indicating version 2.50 or later, because only later versions of
"autoreconf" accept nonoption arguments.  Reported by Julian Andres
Klode <>.

autoconf2.13 (2.13-61) unstable; urgency=low
* Apply patch from Damyan Ivanov <> to avoid
using deprecated and soon-to-disappear library.  Closes:
* Add build-indep and build-arch targets to debian/rules (suggested by
* Switch to 3.0 (quilt) source format.  I broke out some of the changes
to upstream files into separate patches, but some work remains.
* debian/control: Remove Conflicts and Replaces against ancient autoconf
package versions, which are no longer relevant since the newer
autoconf was introduced in 2001.  Remove version requirements on
texi2html and autoconf, whose versions are matched even by lenny
versions of those programs.
* debian/watch: Add file containing only a comment explaining that this
version of Autoconf is no longer maintained upstream.
* Add lintian override for ancient-autotools-helper-file error.
* Update to standards version 3.9.2.
2010-02-13 - Ben Pfaff <>
autoconf2.13 (2.13-60) unstable; urgency=low
* Add modern-style Info directory entry.
* Remove all uses of install-info from maintainer scripts and require
Debhelper 7.2.17 or later, which handles Info files itself via
triggers.  Also require dpkg (>= 1.15.4) | install-info to ensure
support.  Thanks to Jonathan Nieder <> for reporting
this.  Closes: #569265.
* Add doc-base support.
* debian/control: Update standards version from 3.7.2 to 3.8.4 (no
changes necessary).
* debian/control: Remove duplicate Section and Priority fields from
binary package stanza.
* debian/rules: Don't ignore "make clean" and other errors.
* Upgrade to Debhelper version 7.
* debian/rules: Don't delete install-stamp and build-stamp explicitly,
because dh_clean deletes them itself in version 7.  Use dh_prep
instead of "dh_clean -k" as recommended for version 7.

autoconf2.13 (2.13-59) unstable; urgency=low
* Bundling of short options indicates that autoheader2.50 or
autoreconf2.50 should be invoked.  Closes: #454284.  Thanks to Clinton
Roy <> for reporting this bug.
* Fix detected macrodir and localdir when --macrodir and --localdir
options are used.

autoconf2.13 (2.13-58) unstable; urgency=low
* Recommend automake1.4 instead of automake.  Thanks to Luk Claes
<> for pointing out that automake is no longer in the
archive.  Closes: #394708.
* Update Debian standards version.
* Move debhelper from Build-Depends-Indep to Build-Depends, to comply
with policy.
