2012-01-23 - Thomas Goirand <>
automysqlbackup (2.6+debian-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version. With this new Debian release, I'm deciding to
completely fork upstream work, as it's being impossible to work with
upstream (no responsiveness), that upstream branch diverged, and is still
containing the very bad security issue to save DBs dumps as world readable
after my repeated warnings.
* debian/copyright now using DEP5 format.
* Added Vcs fields and a debian/gbp.conf.
* Switching to source format 1.0 (quilt).
* Removed now useless Dm-Upload-Allowed:, and now using my email
as maintainer.
* Now depends on mysql-client-5.1 | mysql-client (and not 5.0 anymore).
* Standards-Version: is now 3.9.2.
* Remove "a" article in short description.
* Added build-arch: and build-indep: targets in debian/rules.

<> (Closes: #654388).
2010-03-23 - Thomas Goirand <>
automysqlbackup (2.5-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixes the --opt issue with the information_schema that needs --skip-opt
instead of --opt (Closes: #550037).
* Added ${misc:Depends}.
* Added patch to purge the rotated weekly backups that are older than 5
weeks, if you selected SEPDIR (Separate backup for each DB), thanks to
Gregor Hoffleit <> (Closes: #572642).
* Removes verbosivity when doing rm when LATEST is in use, as suggested
by Frédéric Brière <> (Closes: #574479).
2009-08-06 - Thomas Goirand <>

* Added Recommends: mutt (Closes: #532402).

/etc/defaults/automysqlbackup, which is a lot more reliable than the
previous folder listing (Closes: #539370).

was reported by a user of the package (Closes: #534852).
* Added more comments in the /etc/defaults/automysqlbackup.
