vCard is an Electronic Business Card format, as specified by the versit Consortium, useful for storing personal data. libvc handles scanning a vCard file, parsing the vCard file into a data storage structure, manipulating the data storage structure, and writing back to file. It was originally written for `rolo', but has been split-off as a generic library for general use.

    2007-09-23 - Rafael Laboissiere <> libvc (003.dfsg.1-7) unstable; urgency=low * debian/patches/04-accept-line-folding.patch: New patch for making the flex scanner accept values of the fields spanning several lines using the folding technique of RFC-822 (i.e. using a space in the beginning of the continuation lines. This does not yet make libvc completely RFC-2425-compliant, because the continuation sequence "\n " is still contained in the output (i.e. not eaten up). At any rate, rolo should now be able to read vCard files containing folded lines (closes: #442944). * debian/control: + Tightened the dependency on autoconf to >= 2.61 and build-conflict with autoconf2.13, otherwise the -vfi option passed to autoreconf does not work + Added Homepage field
