libnews-article-perl (1.27-8) unstable; urgency=low
* Avoid calling defined on an array in News::FormArticle.  This now
produces a warning with Perl 5.18.
* Move single-debian-patch and patch-header to local-options.  Continue
to generate a single Debian patch for maintainer changes, but do this
via local options not included in the source package so that NMUs and
other changes get versioned patches.
* Suggest default-mta instead of a specific exim4 package default-mta is
now the preferred virtual package to use as the first dependency to
indicate whatever the current default MTA in Debian is.
* Merge Build-Depends and Build-Depends-Indep.  This distinction is not
meaningful when only architecture-independent binary packages are
* Use xz compression for the debian.tar file.
* Update debhelper compatibility level to V9.
* Update to standards version 3.9.4.
- Rewrite debian/changelog in copyright-format 1.0.

version was older than oldstable.
* Update debhelper compatibility level to V7.
- Use debhelper rule minimization.
* Add Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser control fields.

libnews-article-perl (1.27-6) unstable; urgency=low

which fails with Perl 5.10.
* Suggest an MTA for article mailing support.

libnews-article-perl (1.27-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Move debhelper to Build-Depends since it's required for the clean
* Update copyright and watch file to point to CPAN since the original
upstream source page appears to be gone.

libnews-article-perl (1.27-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Providing binary-arch in debian/rules is required by Policy even if
there are no arch-dependent packages.  Whoops.
2005-11-16 - Russ Allbery <>
