- refresh the patches
2019-01-08 - Peter Pentchev <roam@debian.org>
mbuffer (20181119+ds1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Bring up to compliance with Debian Policy 4.3.0: install the upstream
release notes (ChangeLog) as NEWS and not changelog.
* Drop the Lintian overrides related to B-D: debhelper-compat -
Lintian 2.5.98 no longer emits these warnings and errors.
* Fix another typographical error.
* Bump the debhelper compatibility level to 12 with no changes.
* Add the year 2019 to my debian/* copyright notice.
* Move away from git-dpm.
* Add the network-no-getaddrinfo patch to fix two problems in
the case when getaddrinfo(3) is not available:
- fix the parsing of the "-I host:port" command-line option
- use %s, not %d, for string arguments to printf()
* Do not modify an autogenerated file in the typos patch.
* New upstream version, refresh the typos patch.

mbuffer (20180625+ds1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 4.1.5 with no changes.
* Add a trivial autopkgtest running adequate on the installed package.
* New upstream version:
- change the build dependency from libmhash-dev to libmhash2, since
the library is loaded at runtime now, no header files needed
- add the libmhash-so-version patch to look for libmhash.so.2,
not libmhash.so, at runtime
- switch from libmhash to libgcrypt20; the latter seems to be
present on almost all recent Debian installations, pulled in by
gpgv or systemd
- add an explicit runtime dependency on libgcrypt20 since it will
no longer be pulled in by shlibs:Depends

mbuffer (20180505+ds1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Use my Debian e-mail address.
* New upstream version:
- fixes the hang on very short input.  Closes: #776445
- add two more fixups to the usr-tree test.
* Use the B-D: debhelper-compat (= 11) mechanism.
2018-04-13 - Peter Pentchev <roam@ringlet.net>
mbuffer (20180410+ds1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Declare compliance with Debian Policy 4.1.4 with no changes.
* New upstream version:
- drop the af-specific, cleanup-test-files, close-errno,
config-mbuffer, cppcheck, etcdir, and lfs-preload patches,
all accepted by the upstream author
- add some new fixes to the typos patch
- split the tapetest format string fix into its own patch
- add the internal-symbol patch to avoid defining a symbol with
a reserved name when _GNU_SOURCE is enough
- add another two "don't rebuild" fixups to the usr-tree test
* Repack the upstream tarball to exclude the Mercurial tag files.
2018-03-23 - Peter Pentchev <roam@ringlet.net>
mbuffer (20180318-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add the af-specific patch to fix the FTBFS on hosts which do not
have both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.  Also, stash the new have-af
helper tool and use it in the binary package test.
* Now that we're running the tests at build time, fix a "FTBFS twice
in a row" problem by also invoking the testcleanup target.
* Rename the test-cleanup patch to test-conditional.
* Add the cleanup-test-files patch to remove mbuffer.md5 and idev.so.
