libgsecuredelete (0.2.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add Recommends from libgsecuredelete0 on policykit-1: pkexec is needed
for the fill operation to obtain root privileges on non-FAT FS.
* Move upstream signing key to the place uscan now looks for it.
* Ship armored upstream OpenPGP key instead of binary one,
accordingly drop debian/source/include-binaries.
* Disable automake silent rules.
2014-01-24 - intrigeri <>
libgsecuredelete (0.2.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Imported Upstream version 0.2.1
* Invoke dh_install with --fail-missing, and explicitly exclude .la files.
* Use dh-autoreconf to get new libtool macros for ppc64el.
Thanks to Logan Rosen <> for the patch.
* Drop override for buggy Lintian warning that was fixed since then.
* Reformat debian/control with cme.
* Declare compliance with standards 3.9.5.
* Add OpenPGP signature checking support to debian/watch.
* Use canonical URL for Vcs-Git.
* Make libgsecuredelete-dev depend on a real package first,
that is libc6-dev | libc-dev.
2012-06-19 - intrigeri <>
libgsecuredelete (0.2-1) unstable; urgency=high
* New upstream release. Major changes are:
- Workaround sfill limitations regarding secure deletion
of free space larger than the maximum file size supported
by the filesystem. (Closes: #678208)
- Fix delete operation progress.
* Update specification URL in debian/copyright.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3, no change required.
* Setting priority to high to get the fix of secure deletion of
free space (that is particularly problematic on FAT, due to its
4GB file size limit) in sooner.
* Install gsd-sfill-helper in /usr/lib/libgsecuredelete0/libexec/.
* Add copyright information for gsd-sfill-helper.
2012-01-22 - intrigeri <>
libgsecuredelete (0.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Use dpkg-buildflags instead of hardening-wrapper.
* Set my email address to my shiny new one.
2011-10-30 - intrigeri <>
libgsecuredelete (0.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Initial release. (Closes: #636041)
* Update Vcs-* control fields: packaging repo was moved to collab-maint.
* Fix my name.
* Add explicit dependency from the -dev package on libc-dev.
* Add Lintian overrides for false positives.
