liblicense (0.8.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Adding a Replaces / Breaks line to liblicense-dev's control, since
we moved the .a static libs from the liblicense package to -dev.
Thanks, Andreas! (Closes: #673803)
* Adding a development symbolic link.
2012-05-08 - Paul Tagliamonte <>
liblicense (0.8.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Acknowledge NMU. (Closes: #662015)
* Drop NMU diff, rewrite rules to use dh9, and overrides where needed.
- By using the short-style rules, we restore build-arch sanity.
(Closes: #655003)
- Bumped b-d on debhelper up to 9
* Add patch against modules/io/gsf.c, rename the "clone" function to
gsf_clone. (Closes: #669451)
* Move -cli to utils from libs. (Closes: #663074)
* Build for all versions of Python (Closes: #662012)
* Remove brace-expansion.
- Move the .a files into the -dev package
* update to debian/liblicense3.dirs.
* Dropped the lintian overrides, since the issues were resolved upstream.
* Update to policy 3.9.3. No further changes.

liblicense (0.8.1-1.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Add dh_python2 to build-arch sequence (Closes: #655006)
* Duplicate the binary-arch rules to binary-indep, and run them with
-a, -i as appropriate (Closes: #655004)
2011-08-23 - Paul Tagliamonte <>
liblicense (0.8.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* ACKing NMUs
* New upstream release. Might as well have a new upstream tarball slid
in all these new changes!
* Adding myself to Uploaders, I'll see if I can't help out paulproteus.
* Removed python-central from the build system, (Closes: #616867).
- Cleaned d/rules to use dh_python2, removed dh_pythoncentral
- Removed python-central from the build-deps
- Moved XS-Python-Version current to X-Python-Version >= 2.6.
* Policy bump to 3.9.2, no changes.
* Added misc:depends to liblicense-dev and python-liblicense.
* Using source format 3.0 (quilt).
* Adding in `dh_autoreconf', (Closes: #558577).
- As a result, we've added "dh-autoreconf" as a new build-dep.
* Removed the Section: from a few of the packages, since they inherit
from the source. 
* Played with the copyright file a bit, for Lintian's sake:
- Removed all instances of `(C)' replaced them with `Copyright'.
- Changed the refs to licenses from the "current" link to the
versioned link. This is not really an issue, since they were all
licensed as +, but we're not re-licensing each version.
* Added two new VCS- tags in d/control. Our new home is git.d.o.
* Added the Homepage field in d/control.
* Added a debian/watch file.
* Added a build-indep and build-arch target that pass through to 
binary-indep and binary-arch.
* Modified the d/control discription tags to be a bit more unique, and
provide a more complete snapshot of what the package does. Some of
them were shortened a bit, others were just changed.
* Removing DMUA, no need for it.
