libcrypt-gcrypt-perl (1.26-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Use MetaCPAN URLs.
* Add debian/upstream/metadata
* Add patch to compile with libgcrypt 1.6.
libgcrypt 1.6.x reworked the assymmetric crypto API which was not
implemented in Crypt::Crypt. The patch removes the stubs from the module.
(Closes: #758993, #763254)
* Add debian/upstream/metadata
* debian/copyright: update license stanzas.
And add missing newline before first Files: section.
* Remove debian/gbp.conf.
Not needed anymore after the git repo got converted to the "default"

* debian/control: drop unneeded version constraints from build-dep.
* Update Vcs-Browser field to cgit.
* Mark package as autopkgtest-able.
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 3.9.6.
