debian-goodies (0.34) unstable; urgency=high

  * Fix security bug that enables users to generate files in the
    filesystem with shell metacharacters and have the checkrestart
    script run external code (as root, since the script will only
    run as admin). This is CVE-2007-3912. (Closes: 440411)

  * Remove vi swap file from sources
  * Small changes to debmany binary (typo, versiondate and a comment)

 -- Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@debian.org>  Tue, 28 Aug 2007 23:35:26 +0200

debian-goodies (0.31) unstable; urgency=low

  * Introduce the debmany script written by Michael Arlt  (it was actually in
    the sources of 0.30 but not installed in the binary package)

 -- Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@debian.org>  Mon, 27 Aug 2007 19:05:46 +0200

debian-goodies (0.30) unstable; urgency=low

  * checkrestart changes:
    * Do not warn on processes than use /dev/zero and shows up as
      deleted. This prevents it from warning about apache2 (Closes: #432569)
    * Slightly improve the messages output.
    * Find init.d scripts even if not provided in the package by looking
      for init.d scripts that match the process name (works for apache2 too)
  * Fix some typos in which-pkg-broke(1) (Closes: #409581)

 -- Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@debian.org>  Wed, 22 Aug 2007 22:59:27 +0200

debian-goodies (0.29) unstable; urgency=low

  * Network-test: use -t switch to use user's TMPDIR or /tmp instead of
    trying to create it under $PWD (Closes: #432311)
  * Add a Suggests: netcat (Closes: #400479)
  * popbugs: 
      * Make it parse the new format of the RC buglist properly (Closes: #421355)
      * Add a debug option
      * Fix a typo in the output
  * Change maintainer's email address in debian/control

 -- Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@debian.org>  Mon, 09 Jul 2007 18:23:53 +0200

debian-goodies (0.28) unstable; urgency=low

  * Apply patch by Francesco Potorti that makes checkrestart list 
    processes that should be restarted when a daemon is restarted.
    This helps warn users that some processes will not be restarted
    even though they use the init script (such as active ssh connections). And
    need to be restarted manually (Closes: #290265)
  * Be more verbose when nothing needs to be done (the user might think that
    the script did not do anything!)

debian-goodies (0.27) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Fixes I would like to see in etch, even though we're on freeze now ]
  * Fix checkrestart with patch provided by Justin Pryzby, modify to reduce
    false positives by not complaining about deleted inodes/files under
    /tmp/, /var/log/ or named /SYSV. This fixes the long-standing issue that
    made this script rather useless (related to lsof, see bug #297029, and to
    changes in dpkg)  (Closes: #264985)
    (Note I have included the code from Sam Morris, available at
    http://robots.org.uk/src/psdel and contributed in the BTS. But it still
    needs to be massaged to work as a replacement for lsof)
  * Write a manpage for checkrestart so administrators are aware that this  
    tool should not be completely relied on. (Closes: #305279)
  * Update the version of network-test which fixes some of the bugs already
    fixed in the experimental 'ifupdown-extra' package:
    [ Note: Post-etch network-test will be removed from this package but
      I rather not try to introduce an experimental package such as
      ifupdown-extra into etch right now ]
      * Make network-test use bash (Closed: #401363)
      * Do not analyse resolv.conf lines that have been commented out.
      * Change network-test so it does not complain loudly if ethtool is not
        installed (just recommends its installation)
      * Fix duplicate spaces in the script as well as some typos with patch
        provided by Norbert Kiesel (Closed: #400463)
      * Change behaviour of network-test when testing ethernet link 
        (based on ifupdown-extra's 'check-network-cable' tests) this is better
        (and more reliable) than just using 'ifconfig' but requires users
        install additional software.
   * Lintian error fix: FSF address

debian-goodies (0.26) unstable; urgency=low

  * Remove extra space from which-pkg-broke which introduced a syntax
    error (Closes: #396786)

 -- Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a <jfs@computer.org>  Fri,  3 Nov 2006 00:53:17 +0100

debian-goodies (0.25) unstable; urgency=low

  * Depend on dctrl-tools since grep-dctrl is a transitional package, keep
    grep-dctrl to make it possible to backport this package (Closes: #385478)
  * which-pkg-broke now looks in Pre-Depends thanks to the patch submitted by
    Josh Triplett (Closes: #394950)
  * Network-test changes:
    - now uses bash only (Closes: #396324)
    - correctly detects an interface as UP if it has been forced to a
      given speed (Closes: #396336)
    - do not test nameservers that have been commented out from resolv.conf
    - fix a typo in a message

debian-goodies (0.24) unstable; urgency=low

  * Taking up this package as new maintainer, after talking with Matt
    on private mail.
  * Fix Frank Lichtenheld's mail in all manpages (Closes: #249818)
  * Changes to debget:
    - debget --help (or -h) now works as expected. Introduce usage
      in the tool to warn on errors when calling it (Closes: #251353)
    - Any other options are rejected (as they would be passed on to apt)
    - Additional error checking in debget to prevent it from going ahead
      when something goes wrong, this includes checking first if the
      apt-get dependencies are right and that the package the user asked
      us to retrieve exists (Closes: #283401)
    - Use apt-cache instead of apt-get to get the version as
      'apt-get -q2 -s --reinstall install' requires, for some reason,
      super cower powers. This makes it possible to download packages
      without satisfying dependencies (Closes: #369494)
    - Document the fact that downloading packages from the package cache
      is not supported both in the manpage and in the program's output
      (Closes: #224857)
  * Fix manpage dglob typos as well as the header of the documentation
    generated by pod2man (Closes #228302, #305802)
  * Have debman use bash as a shell (Closes: #369762)
  * Set LC_NUMERIC to 'C' in dpigs as suggested by Bill Allombert (Closes:
    #368227)
  * Move checkrestart to /usr/sbin (Closes: #329723)
  * Have dglob exit with a '1' exit status if no packages match the globbing
    pattern (Closes: #292585)
  * Make popbugs properly extract the file provided by the user instead of
    /var/log/popularity-contest, if requested to (Closes: #263471)
  * Fix typo in popbugs.1 manpage (AUTOR -> AUTHOR)
  * Include which-pkg-broke Python script contributed by Bill Gribble and
    wrote its associated manpage (Closes: #231470)
  * Include network-test shell script contributed by myself and
    wrote its associated manpage (Closes: #307694)
  * Use debhelper compatibility version 4

debian-goodies (0.19) unstable; urgency=low

 -- Matt Zimmerman <mdz@debian.org>  Wed, 17 Dec 2003 17:48:36 -0800

debian-goodies (0.18) unstable; urgency=low

  * Include man pages for debget, dgrep and dpigs from Frank Lichtenheld

  * Enhance debian-goodies to give a hint about needing popularity-contest

  * Depends: python (>= 2.3), as we use NamedTemporaryFile

 -- Matt Zimmerman <mdz@debian.org>  Fri, 15 Aug 2003 21:35:16 -0400

  * Modify checkrestart to use dpkg rather than dpkg-query, so that it can be
    used on stable and does not require a dependency on newer dpkg 

 -- Matt Zimmerman <mdz@debian.org>  Fri,  2 May 2003 10:19:15 -0400

debian-goodies (0.9) unstable; urgency=low

debian-goodies (0.7) unstable; urgency=low

    (Closes: #176295)

 -- Matt Zimmerman <mdz@debian.org>  Sat, 11 Jan 2003 15:12:05 -0500

debian-goodies (0.6) unstable; urgency=low

    which are often used in sources.list. (Closes: #176263)

 -- Matt Zimmerman <mdz@debian.org>  Sat, 11 Jan 2003 12:32:28 -0500

    dependencies

debian-goodies (0.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Switch debget from using python-apt to calling apt-get.  The things
    that it really needs aren't exposed by the python-apt API, and this
    makes it possible to use the same version specifications used with
    apt-get install (/stable, =1.2.0-1, etc.).  However, it may refuse to
    work if you have packages in broken states.

 -- Matt Zimmerman <mdz@debian.org>  Sat,  7 Dec 2002 12:11:44 -0500
