igerman98 (20131206-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Undo workaround from previous version and (build-)depend on
dictionaries-common >= 1.23.4 instead.  This should solve this issue.
(Closes: #750067, #750069, #750540).
* debian/ Use octal representation for casechars
and friends.
* Add debian/*.info-hunspell files for myspell and hunspell dicts.
* debian/*.info-*: Use experimental 'Emacsen-Names' feature at
(dictionaries-common 1.23.3) to provide consistent long names
across spellcheckers (Closes: #748773).
* Thanks to Agustin Martin for providing the above patches.  
2014-05-15 - Roland Rosenfeld <>
igerman98 (20131206-4) unstable; urgency=low

igerman98 (20131206-3) unstable; urgency=low

* No longer ship anything under ancient /usr/share/myspell.
* Thanks to Agustin Martin Domingo for providing the above two patches.
* Add ${perl:Depends} to ingerman, iswiss, wngerman and wswiss, since
they use perl via debconf.

* Adapt all patches to new version.
* Get rid of empty {ngerman|swiss}.{hash|compat} in the packages
ingerman and iswiss and instead create them in preinst to avoid
problems with debsums, since these files were changed in postinst but
needed by postinst.  Thanks to Jameson C. Burt for mentioning this
* 19_Bedenkminuteen: Fix wrong affix of Bedenkminute (Closes: #731828).
* Update to Standards-Version 3.9.5 (no changes).
* Update debian/watch file.
