PMK is a utility which, like the popular GNU Autoconf, serves the
purpose of configuring the software sources on a variety of platforms.
Configuring consists of checking the environment for presence of libraries,
header files, programs, functions etc. Based on a simple config file, pmk
generates output files (e.g. config.h, Makefile etc.) using a set of
templates provided by the programmer.

pmk (0.10.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* debian/control: Add Homepage and Vcs-* fields.
* Drop 20_build_fixes.dpatch; GEN_FILES was fixed upstream and
I'll just pass PREMAKE=pmk to make for now.
* New maintainer email address.
* debian/copyright: Update copyright, license, authors, homepage,
current Debian maintainer.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.7.3. No changes needed.
* Don't ignore potential "make distclean" errors.

pmk (0.10.2-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Obey $DEBIAN_SCRIPT_DEBUG to facilitate postinst script debugging.
* Fix 25_pmksetup.dpatch so that pmksetup doesn't try to unlink "" on
error when writing to standard out.
* Depend on gcc | c-compiler, because pmksetup demands it (Closes:

pmk (0.10.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer (Closes: #411686).
* New upstream release.
+ Fixes segfault in pmksetup (Closes: #328362).
* Fix manpage errors.
* Use ucf to manage pmk.conf - debconf no longer needed to ask whether
to replace pmk.conf (see README.Debian for details); get rid of
dependencies, templates and everything, but call db_purge in postinst.
* Remove dependency on pkg-config; pmk has built-in support nowadays.
* Remove /usr/bin/X11 from PATH_BIN setting; it's just a symlink to
/usr/bin nowadays.
* Properly escape quotes around values in the call to pmksetup in
* Remove unnecessary and non-working variable assignments in the call
to pmksetup; in particular, setting OS_NAME to Debian/Linux makes
pmk fail to find its Linux OS information.
* Use dpatch to handle Debian patches.
* debian/rules: binary-* targets should depend on install, which should
depend on build-stamp, not build.
* General debian/rules cleanup. Add configure target.
* General postinst and postrm cleanup. Things only need to be done in
configure and purge.
