xz-utils (5.2.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.  Closes: #851615.
* Standards-Version: 4.3.0 (checked).
* Use an XZ compressed tarball for upstream source.
* Add upstream signing key and verify tarball at "uscan" time.
* Drop patches; all were applied or otherwise fixed upstream.
* Update copyright file.
* debian/control:
- Use a stable repo.or.cz URL for packaging repo.
Closes: #826382.  Thanks to Rolf Leggewie.
- Use https for upstream homepage URL.
- No longer Build-Depends: freebsd-glue on kfreebsd.
* get-orig-source: Use https for upstream Git repository.
* liblzma:
- Remove compatibility tricks that permit sharing a process with
liblzma.so.2.  This means liblzma.a no longer depends on libdl
at run time.
Closes: #919950.  Thanks to Josh Triplett.
- Breaks: liblzma2 versions without symbol versioning.
- Priority: optional.
* xz-utils:
- Lower priority of xz-utils to standard.  Closes: #685203.
- README.Debian: Remove notes about differences from upstream.
- Remove old NEWS.Debian.

xz-utils (5.2.2-1.3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Force a constant /bin/sh for installed scripts. This helps the build
be reproducible; /bin/sh on Debian is always POSIX. (Closes: #806331)
2016-10-08 - Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <sebastian@breakpoint.cc>
xz-utils (5.2.2-1.2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* link against libfreebsd-glue on kfreebsd-* (Closes: #840063)
2016-09-26 - Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <sebastian@breakpoint.cc>
xz-utils (5.2.2-1.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* switch to git-dpm for packaging (closes: #540405)
* New Upstream (closes: #731634)
- no more "xzless error in line 49" (closes: #693537)
- xzgrep -h works (closes: #780268)
* update symbol file
* enable threads for the "normal build"
2015-06-18 - Helmut Grohne <helmut@subdivi.de>
xz-utils (5.1.1alpha+20120614-2.1) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Helmut Grohne ]
* Non-maintainer upload.
[ Colin Watson ]
* Remove build-dependency on perl; we use no non-trivial Perl modules so
the Essential perl-base is perfectly adequate, and an unadorned
build-dependency on perl is problematic for cross-building.
Closes: #697328.
2012-09-10 - Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@gmail.com>
xz-utils (5.1.1alpha+20120614-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Apply fixes from 5.1.2alpha.  Closes: #685220.
- liblzma: report a LZMA_DATA_ERROR when range encoded data starts
with a nonzero byte.  This is a sanity check to catch malformed
files that no known encoders produce.
- xz -v -v --list: Support for decompressing blocks with
zero-length uncompressed data was added in xz 5.0.2, not 5.0.3.
- xz.1: "xz --robot -v -v --list" gained a "minimum xz version to
decompress" field.
* xz-utils/README.Debian: Document differences from upstream.
Closes: #685217.
