Parse::DebianChangelog is a replacement for the very limited
dpkg-parsechangelog. It can be used either via the parsechangelog
command line script or as Perl module.
Currently supported output formats:
* original dpkg-parsechangelog output format
* similar format with multiple stanzas instead of one
* HTML (customizable via HTML::Template templates).

libparse-debianchangelog-perl (1.2.0-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Add explicit (build) dependency on libcgi-pm-perl.
2015-05-25 - intrigeri <>
libparse-debianchangelog-perl (1.2.0-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Run dh_auto_build with UTC timezone: otherwise, the local timezone
impacts the (fixed) timestamps in .pot/.po/.mo files, and hence
the build is not reproducible accross different timezones.
* debian/control: include module name in the long description,
and rephrase it a bit.
* Move libmodule-build-perl from Build-Depends-Indep to Build-Depends:
it is used in the 'clean' target.
* Add build-dependency on the dpkg-dev version that introduced
dpkg-parsechangelog's --show-field option, that is now used in debian/rules.

libparse-debianchangelog-perl (1.2.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Adopt under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group. Thanks to Frank
Lichtenheld for his work!
- Move Frank Lichtenheld to Uploaders, add myself there.
- debian/control: update Vcs-* control fields.
* Bump dh compatibility level to 9, and accordingly adjust
the build-dependency on debhelper.
* debian/copyright:
- Convert to machine-readable copyright format 1.0.
- Add information about files that have specific copyright provisions.
* Add Homepage control field.
* Declare compliance with Standards-Version 3.9.6.
* Replace "perl (>= 5.10.1) | libtest-simple-perl (>= 0.88)" build-dependency
with one on perl.
* Reformat debian/control with cme.
* Make the package build reproducibly:
- Build.PL-when-a-PO_BUILD_DATE-environment-variable-i.patch: new patch,
that makes the build system fake the time for running
po4a-{translate, updatepo}, xgettext, msgmerge and msgfmt,
when a PO_BUILD_DATE environment variable is passed.
- debian/rules: export a PO_BUILD_DATE environment variable, set to the
time of the last entry in debian/changelog.
- Build-depend on faketime and libstring-shellquote-perl,
that are needed by the PO_BUILD_DATE support in Build.PL.
* debian/patches/*:
- Add DEP-3 headers.
- Rename to drop numbers (that were all 0001 anyway).
* Mark package as autopkgtest-able, and declare additional files
that are needed for the test suite to pass.
