This package includes the core Emacs documentation: the Emacs Info
pages, the Emacs Lisp Reference Manual, and the Emacs Lisp Intro.
GNU Emacs is the extensible self-documenting text editor.  This
package contains the architecture independent infrastructure that is
not compliant with the Debian Free Software Guidelines.  In
particular, this includes some of the GNU Emacs info pages, as they
are covered under the GFDL, and specify invariant sections.  See
http://www.debian.org/vote/2006/vote_001 for more information.

emacs25-non-dfsg (25.1+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/changelog: change the package name to emacs25-non-dfsg.
* Merge upstream version 25.1.
* debian: update control and copyright for 25.1.
* Bump the Debian alternatives priority to 28 for 25.1.
* Accommodate 25.1 DFSG content changes.  Several files have become
compatible with the DFSG.
* Generate doc/emacs/emacsver.texi from rules.

emacs24-non-dfsg (24.5+1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/rules: get version via dpkg-parsechangelog.
* Use debian/autogen.sed to generate debian/ files.  Create
debian/autogen.sed and use it to generate the relevant debian/
files, intead of perl and a make function.  That simplifies the
quoting, and makes it easy to see the replacements.
* debian/rules: if requested, build info in parallel.  Set up dummy
targets to allow building the separate top-level info page sets in
parallel (i.e. doc/emacs, doc/lispintro, etc.), and explicitly
specify a -jN to the sub-make based on the DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
parallel setting.  Otherwise there's no parallelism.
* Let dh_lintian handle the overrides file.
* Handle info pages via update-alternatives.  Install the unmangled
info pages to /usr/share/info/emacs-24/ and register them in
/usr/share/info/ via update-alternatives.  See
debian/emacs-common-non-dfsg.README for more information.  Thanks
to Norbert Preining for helping evaluate the approach.
* debian/.gitignore: add debhelper-build-stamp.
