* Change the postinst script so that dpkg-maintscript-helper is only called
when configuring the package, when the file scripts and when the
'mv_conffile' call is supported (Closes: 661264)

[ After a long time of neglecting this package bring it back to life. Enjoy! ]
* New upstream release (4.0) (Closes: #280799)
- This new release renames the user and system-wide configuration file
from 'calcol' to 'cal.col'. The package tries to handle this
transparently for admins through its preinst/postinst.
- Since this new release disables color usage for UNIX systems, change it
to enable by default (this is 'ccal' after all, not 'cal')
* Convert to new quilt format. Move patches from previous versions to
* Fix use of nl_langinfo to properly define the start day of the week. Thanks
to Jakub Wilk for pointing out where the issue was (Closes: 414428)
* New patch: check_month_year_integer.diff - introduces sanity checks to user
input to ensure that the month and year values are 'sane' (e.g. they fit in
a short int, amongst other checks). This ensures that there is no segment
violation in some parts of the code (Closes: 354449)
* Use the new PREFIX definition available in this release to define the 
system-wide configuration file as available in /etc/ instead of hardcoding
the path in the sources. This prevents issues with users not being able to
use their own calcol files (Closes: 230402)
* debian/control:
- Add Homepage
- Remove remove to release-specific features
- Add Pre-depends on dpkg as we use dpkg-maintscript-helper to move the 
configuration file to its new location
* debian/copyright:
- Point to the current homepage and download areas
- Add the BSD license used by the cal.c sources
* debian/menu: adapt to new menu format
* debian/README.source: added and explain that the sources now use quilt for
* debian/rules: simplify using debhelper's 
* debian/docs: remove readme.unix as it is no longer distributed

cal (3.5-7) unstable; urgency=low
* "Proper" honoring of LC_TIME mixing it with command line options,
also added an "american" command line option to set the weekday starting
on "Sunday". Notice, however, that the code only accepts either
"Monday" or "Sunday" as start weekdays, that limitation could be removed,
but let's test this first. Note: please read the comments in util-linux's
cal.c (Closes: #200874)
* The build target now builds (huh!).
* Added a note in README.Debian about diverting '/usr/bin/cal'
* Added more information in the manpage (including the new option)
* Modified the manpage to say 'ccal' instead of 'cal'
2004-01-23 - Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <>

* Changed Standard-Version
* Removed dh-make bolierplate
* Recompiled so that postinst no longer includes the /usr/doc link
* Removed dh_suidregister
