(Closes: #599018) [ Lev "dogsleg" Lamberov ] * 2015-12-12: Update Russian translation [ Thomas Vincent ] * 2015-07-07: Updated French translation, proofread by Baptiste Jammet and Étienne Gilli [ Beatrice Torracca ] * 2016-01-17: Updated Italian translation [ Javier Fernández-Sanguino ] * Makefile: modify to take into account PO dependencies and build the text, html and other targets based on that. This makes it possible to build the translated content properly without going through the 'all' target, which is useful for debugging.

    2015-05-01 - Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña <> debian-faq (8.0) unstable; urgency=medium [ Javier Fernández-Sanguino ] * Bump up the version of the FAQ to the latest release, we have forgotten to do so in the last uploads * Update for the Jessie release: - faqstatic.ent: Update the number of packages and the release names - ftparchives.sgml: Add the names of the future releases (stretch), document the reason why the names come from Toy Story movies and add (in the comments) a semi-complete list of Toy Story names for all the movies * nexttime.sgml: More information on Release Goals, updating the documentation based on the goals that have been already accomplished. Also add the Security Hardening goal to the list, as this is actively worked on and has a huge impact on the users and system's security * Makefile: make sure faqdynamic.ent exists before validating the document * debian/source/format: Document this as a native package [ Beatrice Torracca ] * Updated Italian translation
