emacs24 (24.5+1-6ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Merge with Debian; remaining changes:
- debian/rules: Make sure the emacs24-el directory exists.
- emacsVER-lp725988.patch: Set the X EMACS_CLASS to "Emacs24" to
please bamf and gnome-shell.
- debian/emacsVER.desktop: Also set StartupWMClass for bamf and
- debian/control.in: Have emacs24-common Depends on
emacs24-common-non-dfsg, now that it is out of multiverse.
Update debian/copyright to match.
- Add -no-pie on s390x.

emacs24 (24.5+1-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix a ppc64el, bss-related build problem.
Builds on ppc64el were failing like this:
emacs: Program segment above .bss in
Add these upstream patches to fix the problem:
Thanks to Paul Eggert <eggert@cs.ucla.edu> for help locating the set
of patches, and Esa Peuha <esa.peuha@gmail.com> for reporting the
problem. (Closes: 808347)
2015-11-27 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs24 (24.5+1-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Only test timestamp preservation for $(flavor)-el.  Only check
el.gz timestamp preservation when $(flavor)-el is one of the
packages being built (so the canary file will actually be there),
but go ahead and fix up the timestamps across all packages.
Thanks to David Matthew Mattli <dmm@mattli.us> for reporting the
problem. (Closes: 805904)
2015-11-07 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs24 (24.5+1-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Ensure elc timestamps are newer than el files.  Since
strip-nodeterminism changes the *.el.gz file timestamps, restore
the timestamps after it runs.  Otherwise, Emacs will think that
corresponding .elc files are stale.  Thanks to Yuri D'Elia
<wavexx@thregr.org> for reporting the problem.  (Closes: 803060)
2015-10-24 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs24 (24.5+1-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Split desktop file into term and non-term versions.  Thanks to
Norbert Preining <preining@logic.at> for reporting the
problem. (Closes: 799935)
* Add upstream StartupWMClass/Keywords to *.desktop.  Copy them from
the upstream etc/emacs.desktop.
* Suggest ncurses-term, needed by term mode.  Thanks to Jorge Morais
for reporting the problem and era+debian@iki.fi for forwarding it
to Debian. (Closes: 790402)
* Remove redundant libtiff-dev dependency.
* emacs-common: recommend emacs-el.  Without it, important bits of
Emacs don't work (i.e. C-h f, etc.), and it's not likely to be a
significant burden these days.
