2010-05-05 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
rng-tools (2-unofficial-mt.13-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream source:
+ Enable large file support (closes: #506639)
+ Fix COPYING file to contain the correct license (GPL v2 text)
+ Enable VIA PadLock support on x86_64 (untested)
* debian/copyright,debian/rules,debian/rng-tools.postinst: update
copyright notices and fix license blurb were wrong (it is GPL2+)
* Debian build-system updates:
+ Set debian/source/format to '3.0 (quilt)'
+ debian/control: build-depend on autoconf, automake and drop
autotools-dev since automake will take care of it and we do
not use them directly anymore
+ debian/rules: remove all autogenerated files in clean target,
and call upstream's autogen.sh to regenerate build system
+ debian/rules: use dh_prep instead of dh_clean -k (lintian)
+ debian/rules: use dh_lintian
* debian/rules: honour CFLAGS, really set build arch/target
and really enable viapadlock on i386
* debian/control: rng-tools (binary pkg): add misc:Depends (lintian)
* debian/control: rng-tools (binary pkg): swap udev and makedev in
dependency header (closes: #546880)
* debian/rng-tools.postinst: call MAKEDEV only when available
(closes: #504762)
* debian/control: add version-control related fields
* Remove obsolete /etc/modprobe.d/rng-tools (closes: #518240)
* debian/control: bump standards-version to (no changes)
* debian/rng-tools.lintian-overrides: ignore complains about the path
in /sbin/MAKEDEV calls in postinst
2008-06-19 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
rng-tools (2-unofficial-mt.12-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream source:
+ Some README/NEWS cleanup
+ No code changes
* Upload to unstable (closes: #486688)
* Remove debian/README.Debian, new upstream README has most of the text
that was there
* Sync with Debian sid branch 2-unofficial-mt.10-3
* Packaging cleanup:
+ Remove old debian/rng-tools.modules file, deprecated since forever...
+ Bump standards-version to, no changes needed
+ Fix lintian warning: debian-rules-ignores-make-clean-error using the
suggested -f Makefile test
+ Switch to debhelper V7 mode
+ Use standard debhelper initscripts, lets us get rid of our custom
postrm and prerm.  Ignore failures to start/stop rng-tools in the
maintainer scripts, however, otherwise we become a pest if /dev/hwrng
is missing
+ linda is gone, drop override handling for it in debian/rules
+ install upstream README

rng-tools (2-unofficial-mt.10-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Add LSB initscript header information, thanks to Petter Reinholdtsen
<pere@hungry.com> for the patch (closes: #466917)
* Fix --trng instead of --hrng in manpage and defaults file
(closes: #388748)
* Remove debian/watch file.  Since I am upstream for this heavily
modified version, the file is useless anyway (closes: #450224)
2006-02-24 - Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@debian.org>
rng-tools (2-unofficial-mt.10-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix typo in initscript which caused HRNGDEVICE definitions in
/etc/default/rng-tools to be ignored, thanks to Dariush Pietrzak
<eyck.debian@ghost.anime.pl> for noticing this (closes: #354186)
