This Python package is a high-level wrapper for Kerberos (GSSAPI) operations.
The goal is to avoid having to build a module that wraps the entire
Kerberos.framework, and instead offer a limited set of functions that do what
is needed for client/server Kerberos authentication based on
Much of the C-code here is adapted from Apache's mod_auth_kerb-5.0rc7.
This package contains the Python 2.x module.

pykerberos (1.1.5-0.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* New upstream release (Closes: #751365).
* Added a debian/gbp.conf.
* Added extend-diff-ignore = "^[^/]*[.]egg-info/" in debian/source/options.
* Added python3 support.
* Removed useless debian/pyversions and debian/pycompat.
* Canonical VCS URLs.
* Added a watch file.
* debian/copyright using parseable format 1.0.
* Added a homepage field.
* Drops conflicts + replaces, as this is a very old version that had the
issue and even Wheezy should be unaffected now.
* Also cleans the build folder to allow double builds.
* Disabled some unused dh target to speed-up the build.
* Adds ln -s kerberos.cpython-32mu-*.so to in Python 3 for
Wheezy, as otherwise it's impossible to import the module.
