big-cursor (3.6) unstable; urgency=low

big-cursor (3.4) unstable; urgency=low
* Always run dpkg-divert in the preinst, should be safe and I lost my
diversion somehow in the xorg upgrade so this should deal with whatever
caused that.
* Current policy upgrade.

big-cursor (3.3) unstable; urgency=low
* Move from build-depends-indep to build-depends, to meet current policy.

big-cursor (3.2) unstable; urgency=low
* Added real copyright text.
2002-06-01 - Joey Hess <>

big-cursor (3.0) unstable; urgency=low
* Use dh_installxfonts, so I can test that program.
* Moved font to fonts/misc directory, to comply with policy, and for easier
installation. If you had the fonts/big-cursor directory in your
XF86Config, you can remove it now. I have to divert the regular cursor
font out of the way to make this work.
* Renamed the file to big-cursor.pcf.
