    2015-11-26 - Antonio Terceiro <> autodep8 (0.3) unstable; urgency=medium * split tests by language * Ruby: remove commented lines from Build-Depends fields * NodeJS: - also detect NodeJS packages by binary packages - add support for reading upstream name from package.json (Closes: #803176) - added dependency and build dependency on python3 (autopkgtest itself already depends on python3 anyway) - add support for reading upstream name from binary package * debian/tests/control: added DEP-8 tests to fix a huge incoherence, which is autodep8 not being tested itself on CI.

    2015-07-24 - Antonio Terceiro <> autodep8 (0.2) unstable; urgency=medium [ Antonio Terceiro ] * debian/control: add Vcs-* fields * support/ruby: pass --check-dependencies to gem2deb-test-runner [ Martin Pitt ] * Switch maintainer to Autopkgtest team, and add myself as uploader, with Antonio's consent. * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes necessary). [ Jean-Baptiste Lallement ] * support/dkms: Add support for dkms packages (Closes: #766668) This needs a corresponding "dkms-autopkgtest" script in DKMS itself, see #769095.

    2014-09-20 - Antonio Terceiro <> autodep8 (0.1) unstable; urgency=medium * Initial release.
