rssh (2.3.4-8) unstable; urgency=medium
* Update Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser for the move to
* Use https URL for copyright-format 1.0.
* Update standards version to 4.1.4 (no changes required).
2017-12-23 - Russ Allbery <>
rssh (2.3.4-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Change the specified mode of conf_convert in the Debian patch to be
0644, since dpkg doesn't support modes the way that Git does and will
ignore the mode anyway.  This mismatch was breaking use of dgit for
this package.
2017-12-17 - Russ Allbery <>
rssh (2.3.4-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add Rules-Requires-Root: no.
* Update to debhelper compatibility level V11.
- Remove now-useless build dependency on dh-autoreconf.
* Clean up trailing whitespace in debian/changelog.
* Update standards version to 4.1.2 (no changes required).
2016-09-05 - Russ Allbery <>
rssh (2.3.4-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Enable all hardening flags.
* Fix another spelling error in the rssh man page, caught by Lintian.
* Translation updates:
- Indonesian, thanks Izharul Haq.  (Closes: #835621)
* Switch to the DEP-14 branch layout and update debian/gbp.conf and
Vcs-Git accordingly.
* Run wrap-and-sort -ast on packaging files.
* Switch to https for Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser URLs.
* Fix duplicate license clause in debian/copyright.

2013-12-07 - Russ Allbery <>
rssh (2.3.4-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix typo in the example mkchroot script that causes it to fail to
copy the libnss compat modules.  Patch from Jeremy Jongepier.
(Closes: #729294)
* This package is now maintained using gbp pq from git-buildpackage.
Remove the TopGit glue and the obsolete README.source package and
rename the patches based on the export convention of gbp pq.
* Drop override to use xz compression for the binary package.  This is
now the default in dpkg-buildpackage.
* Update standards version to 3.9.5 (no changes required).
* Translation updates:
- Portuguese (Brazilian), thanks Fernando Ike de Oliveira.
(Closes: #723148)
* Reformat translations with debconf-updatepo.  Add some missing
Language fields and update the Report-Msgid-Bugs-To address.

rssh (2.3.4-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Patch the upstream build system to honor CFLAGS and CPPFLAGS as passed
to configure.  This fixes use of hardening flags during the build.
Thanks to Simon Ruderich for the patch.  (Closes: #709941)
2013-05-11 - Russ Allbery <>
rssh (2.3.4-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Upload to unstable.
* Fix implicit function declaration compiler warning from the svnserve
* Use xz compression for the Debian source and binary package.
* Canonicalize the Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser control fields.
* Update standards version to 3.9.4 (no changes required).
2012-12-07 - Russ Allbery <>
rssh (2.3.4-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
- Merges fixes/command-line-checking.
- Fix a (probably not exploitable) flaw in determining the command
to run from the provided command line.
* Adjust the installation process for the new upstream behavior of
installing rssh.conf as rssh.conf.default.  The Debian package
continues to install it as /etc/rssh.conf.
* Add new logcheck ignore line for a new upstream log message.
* Fix the log level for a notice of global svnserve access to use debug,
matching the (patched) behavior for the other program types.
* Fix the regular expression in the previous change to correctly match a
literal period instead of any character.  (This fix is not critical,
but adds further defense in depth.)  Remove an unused variable to
silence compiler warnings.  Patch from Tomas Hoger.
* Change debian/watch to use the redirector.
