    Changelog

    2014-12-31 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> man-db (2.7.0.2-5) unstable; urgency=medium * Drop real IDs before effective IDs, for non-Linux compatibility (closes: #772597).

    2014-12-05 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> man-db (2.7.0.2-4) unstable; urgency=medium * Backport Danish and French translation updates from upstream (closes: #771367).

    2014-11-03 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> man-db (2.7.0.2-3) unstable; urgency=medium * Policy version 3.9.6: no changes required. * Assume that dpkg-statoverride exists and drop the test for an obsolete compatibility path.

    2014-10-10 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> man-db (2.7.0.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium * Remove /var/lib/man-db/auto-update on purge.

    2014-09-28 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> man-db (2.7.0.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release: - Be more careful to avoid using or double-closing closed database handles. Fixes test suite failures on some systems. - Patch the fdutimens function imported from Gnulib to work around a libc bug in GNU/Hurd. * Stop removing /usr/bin/man and /usr/bin/mandb on prerm remove, as those symlinks are shipped in the package nowadays (thanks, Sven Joachim; closes: #762704).

    2014-09-24 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> man-db (2.7.0.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release: - Fix test suite in the case where the system supports high-precision timestamps but the file system containing the build directory does not. * Ensure that /var/cache/man exists when triggered (LP: #1351795).

    2014-09-22 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> man-db (2.7.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release: - Add systemd tmpfiles snippet to clean up old cat files after a week. - Run "col -b -p -x" over cat pages if possible before parsing them (closes: #751934). - Move database mtime out of the database into file metadata, making the database reproducible between installations (closes: #760895). - Use high-precision timestamps. - Order files by first physical extent before reading (closes: #574410). - Prioritise COLUMNS above TIOCGWINSZ (LP: #1315282). - Formatting improvements to man(1) (closes: #726266). - Don't use pointed-to name as title for database-located pages (closes: #709405). - Move zsoelim to /usr/lib/man-db/. * Remove unnecessary entries from debian/dirs. * Cache the value of man-db/auto-update in the file system, so that we don't have to talk to debconf when processing triggers (closes: #579075). * Add MIME handlers (thanks, Kevin Ryde; closes: #725157). * Override the long-standing Lintian warning for non-standard-dir-perm on /var/cache/man. * Adjust cron.daily to skip cat file cleanup if running under systemd, since the upstream-provided tmpfiles snippet now handles that. * Rebuild the database on upgrade to this version, since the format has changed.

    2014-04-10 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> man-db (2.6.7.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium * Add OpenPGP signature checking configuration to watch file. * New upstream release.

    2014-01-23 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> man-db (2.6.6-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release: - Reimplement 'apropos --and' in a way that works with the optimisations introduced in 2.6.2 (closes: #678670). - Clarify that whatis displays one-line descriptions, rather than e.g. the contents of DESCRIPTION sections (closes: #713992). - Downgrade EAGAIN/EWOULDBLOCK errors from attempts to open a database read-write to debug messages (closes: #684235). * Switch to git (thanks to reposurgeon for helping with the tricky stitching involved); adjust Vcs-* fields. * Policy version 3.9.5: no changes required. * Set VERBOSE=1 when running tests so that Automake will print test logs on failure.
