    2011-07-16 - gregor herrmann <> liblocale-gettext-perl (1.05-7) unstable; urgency=low [ Steve McIntyre ] * Configure perl C compilation for cross builds + Initial patch from Peter Pearse <> Closes: #633949 [ gregor herrmann ] * Improvements to Steve's patch by Ansgar. * Switch to source format 3.0 (quilt). * Add /me to Uploaders. * Set Standards-Version to 3.9.2 (no changes). * Bump debhelper compatibility level to 8. * debian/copyright: DEP5 format.

    2009-09-29 - Raphaël Hertzog <> liblocale-gettext-perl (1.05-6) unstable; urgency=low * The -d option of dh_perl was lost by mistake while converting to tiny rules files. Re-add it. Closes: #548860

    2009-09-20 - Raphaël Hertzog <> liblocale-gettext-perl (1.05-5) unstable; urgency=low [ gregor herrmann ] * Add debian/README.source to document quilt usage, as required by Debian Policy since 3.8.0. * debian/control: Changed: Switched Vcs-Browser field to ViewSVN (source stanza). * debian/control: Added: ${misc:Depends} to Depends: field. [ Nathan Handler ] * debian/watch: Update to ignore development releases. [ Raphaël Hertzog ] * Update my name in Uploaders to add the accented character. * Switch to debhelper 7 tiny rules file and compat mode. * Update Standards-Version to 3.8.3 (no changes needed). * Update meta-information in patches files to comply with DEP-3. * Update Homepage field. * Update my email in README.debian.

    2008-05-07 - Raphael Hertzog <> liblocale-gettext-perl (1.05-4) unstable; urgency=low * Put ${perl:Depends} back into Pre-Depends. The revert in 1.05-2 was wrong. The pre-dependency is needed to make sure that the right perl version is unpacked before liblocale-gettext-perl so that any script/module using Locale::Gettext (still) work once this module has been unpacked. This is particulary important for transitions like perl-5.8 -> perl-5.10 (see #479220 for example). * New patch debian/patches/compatibility-with-POSIX-module.diff so that Locale::Gettext re-exports the LC_* constants coming from POSIX instead of those coming from its own XS implementation. Closes: #479803

    2008-02-19 - Niko Tyni <> liblocale-gettext-perl (1.05-3) unstable; urgency=low [ Raphael Hertzog ] * Change priority to required to match overrides. [ Damyan Ivanov ] * debian/watch: use dist-based URL. * debian/rules: + put -Wall in CFLAGS + use "$@" when touching stamps + use $(CURDIR) instead of `pwd` + make build-stamp target depend on $(QUILT_STAMPFN) instead of 'patch' + drop unneeded dh_installdirs and debian/dirs + split DESTDIR and PREFIX when calling $(MAKE) install + correct the logic around removing empty usr/share/perl5 so that it does not fail when the directory does not exist + drop commented-out and unneeded debhelper calls [ Niko Tyni ] * Add myself to Uploaders.
