emacsen-common (2.0.8) unstable; urgency=medium
* Require add-on packages to depend on emacsen-common >= 2.0.8.  This
should be simpler and safer, and emacsen-common is only ~140k, which
shouldn't be too big a burden.
One specific problem this solves is the handling of
/var/lib/emacsen-common when emacsen-common is purged -- in particular
/var/lib/emacsen-common/state/package/installed/*.  Without the
dependency, emacsen-common can't remove the tree without clobbering
the state for every add-on, but if emacsen-common can't remove it, who
This release changes the following requirements for add-on packages
(see debian-emacs-policy for the details):
- They must now depend on emacsen-common >= 2.0.8.
- They don't need to conflict with emacsen-common anymore.
- They don't need to guard their calls to emacs-install-package.
- They don't need to guard their calls to emacs-remove-package.
- They should no longer manage their package/installed/ file directly.
In addition emacsen flavor packages should now depend on
emacsen-common >= 2.0.8.
* emacs-package-install: don't try to validate the package during the preinst.
The package files that we're looking for won't be available.
Thanks to Tatsuya Kinoshita <tats@vega.ocn.ne.jp> for the report.

* emacs-package-remove: remove unused context variable.
