libpg-perl (1:2.1.1-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Import packaging into git-buildpackage, add Vcs-* tags.
* Set Maintainer to pkg-postgresql team. (Closes: #572670)
* Drop long-obsolete Conflicts/Replaces.
* Move to debhelper compat 9 and dh. This vastly simplifies debian/rules and
avoids hardcoded Perl paths. (Closes: #752711)
* Add missing ${misc:Depends}.
* Move to 3.0 (quilt) source format.
* Add autopkgtest.
* Add test_table_with_oids.patch: Create table with OIDs in test, as OIDs
are not created by default any more.
* Add test_fix_endcopy.patch: Fix $conn->endcopy test.
* Move to copyright format 1.0.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5.
2008-05-07 - Martin Pitt <>
libpg-perl (1:2.1.1-4) unstable; urgency=high
* Urgency high since this fixes a grave bug.
* debian/rules: Robustify installation, to create /usr/share/perl5/
if it does not exist yet. The new perl apparently changed the behaviour of
pure_vendor_install. (Closes: #479382)
* debian/copyright: Update FSF address and upstream URL.
* Remove debian/watch, libpg-perl cannot currently be downloaded from
pgfoundry. Investigation is in progress. (see #453541)
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.7.2 and debhelper compat to 5.
2006-10-29 - Martin Pitt <>
libpg-perl (1:2.1.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix stray '=' in POD synopsis. Closes: #395392
* Add watch file.
2005-06-22 - Martin Pitt <>
libpg-perl (1:2.1.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/rules: 
- Remove the install variables workaround again, it is not necessary any
more with the fixed Perl.
- Install upstream changelog.
2005-06-08 - Martin Pitt <>
libpg-perl (1:2.1.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream version.
* Transition to new PostgreSQL architecture.
* debian/control:
- Changed build dependency postgresql-dev to libpq-dev.
- Do not build the libpgperl transition package any more.
* debian/rules:
- Use pg_config to determine include and library directories.
- Tweak internal variables of the generated Makefile to fix broken default
values of the new Perl's MakeMaker.
2004-10-18 - Martin Pitt <>
libpg-perl (1:2.0.2-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed typo in generated manpage, thanks to Julian Gilbey for
spotting this (closes: #275783)
2004-02-07 - Martin Pitt <>
libpg-perl (1:2.0.2-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Conflicts to and Replaces old libpgperl (i. e. << 1:2.0.2-1) to make
upgrading work in all cases (closes: #231490)
2004-02-06 - Martin Pitt <>
libpg-perl (1:2.0.2-2) unstable; urgency=low
* renamed source package: an unrelated package pgperl already existed which
was overwritten by the last upload
2004-01-16 - Martin Pitt <>
pgperl (1:2.0.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Separated source tree out of postgresql; thus a new epoch had to be
created, postgresql is already at 7.4.1
* Added examples
* don't ship any more, this library has now moved to the core
postgresql package
* renamed package libpgperl to libpg-perl to comply with the Perl policy
(closes: #47821); offer an empty transition package libpgperl
