    Changelog

    2016-01-02 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> base-passwd (3.5.39) unstable; urgency=medium * Policy version 3.9.6: no changes required. * Build with large file support.

    2015-07-16 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> base-passwd (3.5.38) unstable; urgency=medium [ Colin Watson ] * Simplify dpkg (>= 1.16.4) | sgml-base (<< 1.26+nmu2) build-dependency (see changelog for 3.5.26) to just dpkg (>= 1.16.4), since that was some time ago and wheezy has a sufficient version now, and the more elaborate form causes a complaint from debcheck. * Allocate uid/gid 64045 for ceph object storage, by request of Gaudenz Steinlin. * Allocate uid/gid 64050 for the Evergreen ILS, by request of Robin H. Johnson. [ Juan Picca ] * Make documentation build reproducible (closes: #792520).

    2014-01-10 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> base-passwd (3.5.31) unstable; urgency=medium * Pick up version number for "update-passwd --version" from autoconf, rather than having a separate manually-updated and out-of-date version.h. * Convert hand-crafted Makefiles to Automake. * users-and-groups: Add a little more commentary on gnats.

    2014-01-07 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org> base-passwd (3.5.30) unstable; urgency=medium [ Colin Watson ] * Remove config.h.in and configure, now autogenerated by dh-autoreconf. * Change the shell of all global static users other than root (which retains /bin/sh) and sync (as /bin/sync is rather harmless) to /usr/sbin/nologin (closes: #274229; LP: #216813, #248844). * Policy version 3.9.5.
