This package provides the generic resource jobs. It is used together
alongside with PlainBox.
Jobs are smallest units of testing that can be performed by PlainBox.
All jobs have an unique name. There are many types of jobs, some are fully
automated others are fully manual.
Resources are collections of key-value data sets that are generated by
special resource jobs. They are extensively used to indicate hardware or
software dependencies. For example a bluetooth test may indicate it
requires bluetooth hardware and appropriate software packages installed.

plainbox-provider-resource-generic (0.3-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release. List of bugfixes:
* debian/watch: look for new releases on launchpad
* debian/control: make plainbox-provider-resource-generic arch=any as it
builds C source for one provider-specific executable now, also depend on
autotools, intltool and two netlink libraries
* debian/rules: stop using pybuild and use
{i18n,build,install,validate} instead. The build rule also regenerates.
autotools scripts that are present in the tarball.
* debian/control: drop X-Python3-Version 
* debian/patches: drop (no longer needed)
* debian/upstream/signing-key.asc: Use armoured gpg keys to avoid having to
keep binary files in Debian packaging. Also, replace that with my key
since I made the 0.3 release upstream.
* debian/source/include-binaries: no longer needed 
* Stop being a python3 module, move to from DPMT to PAPT
