hexchat (2.12.4-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Demote hexchat-otr from Recommends to Suggests.
It reportely causes noise and problems for unexperienced users, and it's
a mostly unmaintained plugin, so don't install it by default.
2017-01-26 - Mattia Rizzolo <mattia@debian.org>
hexchat (2.12.4-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Also apply patch 4c178782a779f013fafab476506f7d4dae372b8a.patch on ubuntu.
* d/p/0001-Debian-server-defaults.patch: Add missing braces around the `if`.
Thanks to Lauri Alanko <la@iki.fi> for the patch.  Closes: #779892

work around a gdk-pixbuf bug which would prevent the hexchat icon from
being displayed in panels/systrays.  Closes: #848615

* Update upstream documentation.

hexchat (2.12.3-4) unstable; urgency=medium

[ Jesse Rhodes ]

Thanks to Petter Reinholdtsen <pere@hungry.com> for the suggestion
+ Bump the Breaks/Replaces of hexchat-plugins against hexchat;
hexchat-plugin.pc has been moved from hexchat to hexchat-plugins
in 2.12.0-1.  LP: #1586239

make the package syncable.
+ Mark hexchat-common as Multi-Arch:foreign (from the m-a hinter).
* debian/rules:

it should be done on the upstream side.

+ Use dh_install --fail-missing.
* Package the Lua plugin.  Closes: #834491
* Update upstream changelog for 2.13.2.

manually compressing in rules and the install with d/*.docs.

it of our own.
* Add patch to properly clean the upstream sources and make possible to build
the package twice in a row.
* Bump debhelper compat level to 10.
+ --with autoreconf is now default.
* debian/copyright:
+ Make it DEP-5 compliant.
+ Update.
* Drop nearly all lintian overrides; they are either fixed or unused.
