mgp (1.13a+upstream20090219-9) unstable; urgency=medium
* The “I’m *so* going to regret this later…” upload
* Adopt the package (Closes: #509644)
- quick bugfix only, I’ll import into VCS and do general
modernisation as soon as I have time, as I need mgp working n̲o̲w̲
- yes, I’ve seen the bug list, but I have a workshop this weekend
- clean up debian/control a bit while here
* Begin cleaning up the debian/rules mess
- update CPPFLAGS/CFLAGS/LDFLAGS and configure handling from jupp
- rely on dh_strip
- quell some compiler warnings to focus on actual bugs (for now)
- do not “compile a file without optimisation because it’s slow”
* Refresh all patches; introduce compiler warning fix patch
* Fix “debian/rules clean”
* Actually use our CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS, LDFLAGS
* Add a patch to fix a couple of segfaults or weird behaviour
stemming from bad cast or uninitialised memory
* Add a patch to fix guide rendering somewhat
* Integrate lintian’s spelling corrections
* Install manpages with the correct section (1, not 1x)
