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.

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.
