2009-08-04 - Simon McVittie <>
pydb (1.25-1.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Assume the directory layout seen in python-support 1.0 rather than
0.8.x, with modules in /usr/share/pyshared (Closes: #516324)
* Do the initial installation into the directories used by the default
version of Python, not 2.4
* Don't sed away a wrong path in the man page that actually no longer exists
* Lintian fixes:
- Move python-support to Build-Depends-Indep and do the build in
build-indep, not build-arch, as this package is architecture-independent
- Move menu entry from obsolete Apps to Applications
- Install upstream ChangeLog as conventional changelog.gz, not ChangeLog.gz
- Copy the actual copyright statements to debian/copyright, not just the
upstream author's name
- debian/patches/01_man_hyphens.dpatch: replace all "-" with either "\-"
(minus) or "\(hy" (hyphen) depending on apparent intention, according to
the best practice explained by lintian
- debian/patches/02_man_Sp.dpatch: Remove undefined Sp macro (the man
page seems to look fine without it)
- debian/README.Debian: fix a spelling mistake
