    2017-09-15 - Antonio Terceiro <> gem2deb (0.36) unstable; urgency=medium * dh-make-ruby: - use `FIXME` in Section: when package name is not `ruby-*`, to avoid tools being in section `ruby`. - avoid calling wnpp-check twice * gem2deb-test-runner: drop dependency on dpkg-dev. autopkgtest tests should be for installed packages, and pulling development tools is Wrong™. * Apply patch by James Clarke to fix crash when handling build failures in C extensions (Closes: #851172)

    2017-07-18 - Antonio Terceiro <> gem2deb (0.35) unstable; urgency=medium * dh-make-ruby: bump debian/compat template to 10 (Closes: #867741) * Gem2Deb::Metadata: - use debian/gemspec as gemspec if it exists (Closes: #867739) * gem2deb, dh-make-ruby: add -o/--offline option to prevent any access to the internet (including but not limited to checking wnpp)

    2017-07-01 - Antonio Terceiro <> gem2deb (0.34) unstable; urgency=medium [ Dominic Cleal ] * dh-make-ruby: support concurrent dh-make-ruby processes without one of them botching "gem to package" mapping cache (Closes: #862409) [ Balasankar C ] * Change template copyright to Expat (Closes: #786521) [ Antonio Terceiro ] * Fix most Ruby warning in the code. They were exposed by rake 12.0.0, which runs tests with warnings enabled by default. * dh-make-ruby: - Bump Standards-Version in produced packages to 4.0.0 * debian/control: - Bump Standards-Version to 4.0.0; no changes needed

    2016-12-07 - Antonio Terceiro <> gem2deb (0.33.1) unstable; urgency=medium * Gem2Deb::GemInstaller: - don't install extra_rdoc_files - don't install examples/*

    2016-12-06 - Antonio Terceiro <> gem2deb (0.33) unstable; urgency=medium [ Antonio Terceiro ] * Gem2Deb::Metadata. Parse timestamp as Date insted of Time. Fixes test suite on jessie (Closes: #835588) * gem2deb-test-runner: - fix documentation of $GEM2DEB_TEST_RUNNER in manpage * Gem2Deb::GemInstaller - don't try to remove empty directories from lib/ if there is no lib/ - invert the logic for file inclusion. Everything shipped by upstream gem authors is installed, except most top-level files and a well-known blacklist of directories that should not be installed (test infrastructure, etc). Maintainers can still whitelist files, and they can also blacklist files. * Gem2Deb::Rake::TestTask: allow using a different task name than :default [ Stefano Rivera ] * gem2deb-test-runner: Add Build-Dep on dpkg-dev. Autopkgtests may use this, and don't necessarily have build-essential.

    2016-08-23 - Antonio Terceiro <> gem2deb (0.32) unstable; urgency=medium * --gem-install: append new directories to the whitelist from the $DH_RUBY_GEM_INSTALL_WHITELIST_APPEND environment variable

    2016-07-01 - Antonio Terceiro <> gem2deb (0.31) unstable; urgency=medium * dh-make-ruby: - Bump Standards-Version in debian/control template to 3.9.8 * gem2deb-test-runner: - Add -d/--check-dependencies-only option that only checks dependencies, and does not run any tests.

    2016-06-12 - Antonio Terceiro <> gem2deb (0.30.3) unstable; urgency=medium * test/unit/dh_ruby_test.rb: fix method that gets the list of binary packages from source packages generated in the tests to not be influenced by the dpkg-buildpackage invocation used to build gem2deb (Closes: #826674) * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.8, no changes needed
