dhcpy6d (0.4.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Henri Wahl ]
* New upstream release
+ VLAN definitions now really work
+ several code cleaned
+ Removes unnecessary executable bits (see #769006) → reinstantiate
debian/dhcpy6d.logrotate as symlink
[ Axel Beckert ]
* Fix postinst script to not expect preinst parameters (Closes: #768974)
2014-11-13 - Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
dhcpy6d (0.4-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Handle /etc/default/dhcpy6d with ucf. (Closes: #767817)
+ Install file to /usr/share/dhcpy6d/default/dhcpy6d instead, remove
symlink debian/dhcpy6d.default, add debian/dhcpy6d.install.
+ Depend on ucf.
* Install volatile.sqlite into /usr/share/dhcpy6d/ and copy it to
/var/lib/dhcpy6d/volatile.sqlite during postinst only if it doesn't
yet exist. Remove it upon purge. (Closes: #768989)
* Both fixes above together also remove unnecessary executable bits.
(Else the fix for #767817 newly introduces the lintian warning
executable-not-elf-or-script; closes: #769006)
* Additionally replace symlink debian/dhcpy6d.logrotate with a patched
copy of etc/logrotate.d/dhcpy6d to remove the executable bit also
there. (Fixes another facet of #769006)

* Add get-orig-source target to debian/rules for easier snapshot
* Depend on ${python:Depends} instead of a hardcoded python (>= 2.6).
* Add "Pre-Depends: dpkg (>= 1.16.5) for "start-stop-daemon --no-close"
* Drop dependency on iproute/iproute2 as /sbin/ip is no more used.
