libmnl is a minimalistic user-space library oriented to Netlink developers.
There are a lot of common tasks in parsing, validating, constructing of
both the Netlink header and TLVs that are repetitive and easy to get wrong.
This library aims to provide simple helpers that allows you to re-use code
and to avoid re-inventing the wheel.
The main features of this library are:
Small: the shared library requires around 30KB for an x86-based computer.
Simple: this library avoids complexity and elaborated abstractions that
tend to hide Netlink details.
Easy to use: the library simplifies the work for Netlink-wise developers.
It provides functions to make socket handling, message building,
validating, parsing and sequence tracking, easier.
Easy to re-use: you can use the library to build your own abstraction
layer on top of this library.
Decoupling: the interdependency of the main bricks that compose the
library is reduced, i.e. the library provides many helpers, but the
programmer is not forced to use them.
This package contains the development libraries and header files you need
to develop your programs using the minimalistic Netlink communication

libmnl (1.0.3-4) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/control: Drop Dm-Upload-Allowed as it is obsoleted
* Make package more backports friendly, bump Standards-Version
* debian/control:
- Build-deps on debhelper (>= 9~), more backports friendly.
- Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5, no changes needed.
* Apply wrap-and-sort -s
* Drop unnecessary include for
* debian/rules:
- Drop DPKG_EXPORT_BUILDFLAGS and inclusion as
debhelper is already takes care of them.
* Move lib to /lib/[arch triplet]
* debian/rules, debian/libmnl{0,-dev}.install:
- Move lib to /lib/[arch triplet]
- Add LIBMNL_SO_VER variable to declare the soname version for
the libmnl-dev symlink creation.
* debian/libmnl-dev.links:
- Create the /usr/lib/[arch triplet]/ symlink to lib.
* debin/control:
- Add dh-exec to build-deps as it is required by arch triplet static
lib installation.
- Add Vcs-{Browser,Git} URL.
* debian/NEWS:
- Add the information for reason why move the lib.
* debian/libmnl{0,-dev}.dirs:
- Drop as unneeded.

* debian/rules: Add stack protector (hardening) compiler flag
* debian/copyright: Update copyright years
* Switch debian package compression to xz
* Get library so version on build-time instead of hardcoded
* debian/rules:
- Get library so version on build-time and pass it to dh_link for
symlinks installation.

* debian/control: Change Architecture to linux-any (Closes: #745225)
* Add patch to fix FTBFS on ppc64el

* debian/rules:
- Also build static library.
* debian/libmnl{0,-dev}.install:
- Update installation path to MultiArch libdir path.
* Add watch file

* debian/control:
- Add dh-autoreconf to build-deps.
* Drop duplicated "Section" filed in control file
* debian/control:
- Drop duplicated "Section" field of libmnl0 package as it could be
