    2011-08-01 - Vince Mulhollon <> palbart (2.4-7) unstable; urgency=low * Building on testing now; Standards upgrade from to * Redoing debian/rules into the "tiny" version. * debian/compat from 7 to 8

    2011-07-07 - Vince Mulhollon <> palbart (2.4-6) unstable; urgency=low * Standards version upgrade from to fixes lintian ancient-standards-version * Modified the description removing the "An" to fix lintian description-synopsis-starts-with-article * Added misc:Depends to control file to fix lintian debhelper-but-no-misc-depends * Stop ignoring make clean errors by removing "-" fixes lintian debian-rules-ignores-make-clean-error * Set debhelper version in new compat file instead of rules file. Fixes lintian debian-rules-sets-DH_COMPAT * A first attempt at a debian/watch file Fixes lintian debian-watch-file-is-missing * Explicitly set source format 1.0 (for now) in debian/source/format This makes lintian happy, missing-debian-source-format goes away Eventually I'll switch to Quilt-3.0 format, just not today. * debhelper compat version upgraded from 4 to 7 which fixes lintian package-uses-depricated-debhelper-compat-version * Cleaned up the copyright file. Nothing substantial has changed, other than adding the years and email addrs on the (C) line, and also added the upstream location as also seen in the watch file. Format inspired by Joerg Jaspert's email "How (not) to write copyright files - take two" to the DDA list from 26 Mar 2006. This fixes lintian copyright-without-copyright-notice * Cleaned up rules file, removing unused debhelper calls for info files, example files, cron files. * Replaced call in rules for dh_clean -k with modern dh_prep fixes lintian dh-clean-k-is-deprecated * Added versioned Build-Depends in rules for debhelper (>= 7) because I'm now using vers 7 debhelper (see compat file) Fixes lintian package-lacks-versioned-build-depends-on-debhelper
