    2014-08-29 - intrigeri <> 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.
