brian (1.4.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Forgotten upload to unstable
* debian/control
- policy boost to 3.9.5
- updated Vcs- fields given migration to anonscm.d.o and provided -b
2013-04-30 - Yaroslav Halchenko <>
brian (1.4.1-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream release
- absorbed/addressed all non deb_* patches
* debian/rules
- set http_proxy to avoid undesired network accesses
- prefixed with 'set -e' all 'for' loops to guarantee failure if any fails
- set env variable BRIAN_SETUP_FAIL_ON_ERROR
2012-08-30 - Yaroslav Halchenko <>
brian (1.4.0-1) experimental; urgency=low
* Fresh upstream release
* debian/patches:
- added up_examples_shebangs patch to address lintian warnings on
executable non-scripts
- refreshed build_extensions patch to build extensions (assuming now
that numpy is present)
- cherry-picked 0001-C-version-of-SpikeContainer-now-picklable.patch to
resolve pickling of swig'ed objects
* debian/control:
- boosted policy to 3.9.3 (no further changes)
- removed not needed XS-DM-Upload-Allowed
* debian/copyright:
- DEP5 v.1.0 compliant now
- moved references into debian/upstream

brian (1.3.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Fresh upstream release
* Boosted policy compliance to 3.9.2 (no changes)
* Added up_skip_tests_with_paths patch to avoid test failures on custom 
test scripts with hardcoded paths
2011-04-06 - Yaroslav Halchenko <>
brian (1.3.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Restrict numpy versioned dependency only to -lib package. Thanks Jakub
2011-02-19 - Yaroslav Halchenko <>
brian (1.3.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Fresh upstream release
* Suggest cherrypy and build-depend on dvipng
2011-02-08 - Yaroslav Halchenko <>
brian (1.2.2~svn2469-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Upstream pre-release snapshot
* debian/copyright - fixed Maintainer and Source entries
* debian/rules:
- set both HOME and MPLCONFIGDIR to point to build/.
Should resolve issues of building when $HOME is read-only
(Closes: #612548)
- assure Agg matplotlib backend to avoid possible complications
during off-screen operations
- un-disabled hears unittests (model-fitting remains disabled due
to absent dependency -- playdoh)
* debian/control:
- graphviz (for graphs rendering) and texlive-latex-base,
texlive-latex-extra (for equations rendering) into build-depends
