fgetty is a small, efficient, console-only getty for Linux.  It is derived
from mingetty but hacked until it would link against diet libc to produce
the smallest memory footprint possible for a simple yet complete getty.
fgetty includes a login program that supports the checkpassword
authentication interface, and also a checkpassword program that uses the
standard C library interface to passwd and shadow.

fgetty (0.7-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add dietlibc-dev into Built-Using, since it is linked statically,
as mandated by Policy ยง7.8. (Closes: #847576)
* Remove outdated version specification on dietlibc-dev build-dependency.
* Bump standards version to 3.9.8. No changes needed.
* Use secure git url
2016-02-12 - Dmitry Bogatov <KAction@gnu.org>
fgetty (0.7-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New maintainer
* New upstream release
* Add watch file with GPG key verification
* Add source/format to follow v3.0 source package format
* Use debhelper instead of custom debian/rules
* Drop checkpassword-pam. Upstream does not support it, and once written,
but is not maintained anymore. Averaged desktop setup should not
need anyway.
* Remove outdated README.Debian
* Reformat debian/copyright to follow DEP-5
* Link checkpassword with gnu libc (Closes: #563335) with hardening
* Add lintian overrides about static build and lack of dependencies
* New standards version -- 3.9.7 (No changes needed)
* Disable automatic generation of debug packages, since most binaries
in package are static linked without any debug information.
* Install `login1' and `login2' binaries into private directory,
since they are never invoked directly. It replaces `fgetty-login.diff'
* Drop `ro-diff.patch', since it is not needed with default Debian
2007-12-11 - Gerrit Pape <pape@smarden.org>
fgetty (0.6-5) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/implicit: add proper dependencies to support 'parallel build'

* debian/rules: target build: pass LDFLAGS= to make to prevent upstream
install target to strip programs (closes: #436834).
2006-11-13 - Gerrit Pape <pape@smarden.org>
fgetty (0.6-4) unstable; urgency=low

2005-03-20 - Gerrit Pape <pape@smarden.org>
fgetty (0.6-3) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/rules: cleanup.

compiled programs work with a kernel with stack protection (thx Csillag
Tamas, closes: 299550).
2004-02-24 - Gerrit Pape <pape@smarden.org>
fgetty (0.6-2) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/rules: use 'diet -v -Os' instead of 'diet' to compile package
(fixes build failure on sparc).
2004-02-16 - Gerrit Pape <pape@smarden.org>
fgetty (0.6-1) unstable; urgency=low
* initial debian package (closes: #232647).
