files and mailboxes from the command line.  These include:
lockfile-create

lockfile-touchlock
mail-lock

mail-touchlock
These programs use liblockfile to perform the file locking and
unlocking, so they are guaranteed compatible with Debian's
file locking policies.

Changelog

2012-12-01 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
lockfile-progs (0.1.17) unstable; urgency=low
* Add "p" to getopt_long()'s short options so the "-p" arg will actually work.
As the manpage states, "-p" was intended to be the short argument for
"--use-pid", but since "p" wasn't added to the getopt_long()
optstring, it didn't actually work.  Fix it.
Thanks to Michael Deegan <bugs@wibble.darktech.org> for the report.
(Closes: #686057)
* Fix cross-builds; use the cross-compiler when cross-building.
Thanks to Colin Watson <cjwatson@ubuntu.com> for the report and the
patch. (Closes: #694842)
2011-08-21 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
lockfile-progs (0.1.16) unstable; urgency=low
* Remove unused rc variable in chk() to silence gcc warning.
Thanks to Matthias Klose <doko@debian.org> for the report, and thanks
to Aurelien Jarno <aurelien@aurel32.net> for the 0.1.15.1 NMU.
(Closes: #625384)
* Use L_PID rather than L_PPID when appropriate.  In cases where
lockfile_create() and lockfile_check() were being called with L_PID,
use L_PPID to capture the parent's PID.  Capturing the PID of the
lockfile-create or lockfile-check process made no sense.  Thanks to
Zrin Žiborski <zrin+launchpad@ziborski.net> for the report, Larry
Diegel for the patch, and Sebastian Siewior <sebastian@breakpoint.cc>
for the suggestion to update the documentation. (Closes: #626752)
2010-06-13 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
lockfile-progs (0.1.15) unstable; urgency=low
* Add missing debhelper Build-Depends.
2010-06-12 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
lockfile-progs (0.1.14) unstable; urgency=low
* Don't erroneously require -l for mail-related commands.
Thanks to Andre Grueneberg <andre-debian@grueneberg.de>. (closes: #563533)
* Change --retry-count to --retry in the manpage.
Thanks to Daniel Frank <debian-bugs-239623@danielfrank.net>.
(closes: #584779)
* Change debian/rules to use "dh $@" approach.
This also adds md5sums, fixing a wishlist bug.  Thanks to Loïc Minier
<lool@dooz.org>. (closes: #564798)
2009-06-21 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
lockfile-progs (0.1.13) unstable; urgency=low
* Make exit_status volatile since it interacts with a signal handler.
* Adjust code for -Wformat-security.  Thanks to Michael Bienia
<michael@vorlon.ping.de>. (closes: #487503)
2009-06-17 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>

(closes: #439745)
* Remove duplicate priority field from the control file.
(closes: #464297)

call.  Users should note the caveats in lockfile_create(3).
* Add a lockfile-check program (see lockfile_check(3)).
* Remove duplicate priority and section fields from debian/control.
Thanks to Lucas Nussbaum <lucas@lucas-nussbaum.net> and Patrick
Winnertz <winnie@debian.org>. (closes: #464297)
