colord (1.4.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream 1.4.4 release
- debian/patches/skip_build_depends.patch:
- debian/patches/trivial-Add-a-quirk-for-the-renamed-LG-Electronics.patch:
+ Dropped, included in new upstream release
* Add new docbook-xsl-ns build-dependency
* Drop patches present in new upstream version
* Add colord-tests package. (Closes: #917619)
* Migrate final use of explicit dpkg-maintscript-helper to
* colord.lintian-overrides:
+ Add override for not linking to libc. It does not in
fact directly use any symbols from libc.
+ Add override for missing init.d script for colord daemon. colord is
a DBus-activated daemon, the systemd unit is only for enabling extra
systemd-specific behaviour when systemd is handling DBus activation.
* debian/patches/fix-cd-sensor-dummy.patch:
+ Cherry pick from upstream fixing a trivial crash in the dummy sensor
* debian/tests:
+ Drop the make-check dep8 test in favour of one based on the installed
+ Mark the installed test as flaky, until upstream bug is resolved
