    2016-02-29 - Guillem Jover <guillem@debian.org> dpkg-repack (1.43) unstable; urgency=medium * Fix variable name botched in a last-minute rebase. * Add very basic unit test to check syntax failures.

    2016-02-28 - Guillem Jover <guillem@debian.org> dpkg-repack (1.42) unstable; urgency=medium * Use https for the debian/copyright Format URL. * Remove ancient versioned Build-Depends on dpkg. * Do not add spurious newlines to the binary control file. * Ignore case when comparing all field names, although «dpkg -s» already normalizes them for known ones. * Use a proper non-deterministic temporary directory per package. This fixes a possible security issue, and using --generate with multiple packages. * Include the package name in the temporary directory, so that they are easier to distinguish when operating on multiple packages with --generate. * Check immediately if we cannot get any package control information. * Switch to use Dpkg::Control to handle the control data. Add a dependency on libdpkg-perl. * Add basic autopkgtest test cases. * When using --generate, also print the error summary if the tree might be broken due to processing errors. * Automatically use fakeroot if available and not running as root. * Add fakeroot to a Suggests field. * Rename packagename to package-name in --help output. * Remove duplicated program name prefix in generate Info message. Thanks to Brian Beffa <brbsix@gmail.com>. * Remove duplicated newline in Warn message. Thanks to Brian Beffa <brbsix@gmail.com>. * Fix grammatical errors and typos in man page and --help output. Thanks to Brian Beffa <brbsix@gmail.com>. * Add a --tag option to select what to mark as being repackaged. Based on a patch by Brian Beffa <brbsix@gmail.com>. Closes: #788628 * Add a --tag value to mark the package version as repackaged. Closes: #788627 * Switch git repository URLs from git:// to https:// in README and debian/control Vcs-Git field. * Bump Standard-Version to 3.9.7 (no changed needed).
