nut (2.7.2-4ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=low
* Merge with Debian; remaining changes (LP: #1522346) :
- debian/control:
+ remove Build-Depends on libpowerman0-dev
+ remove nut-powerman-pdu
- debian/nut-powerman-pdu.{install,manpages}: dropped for now
- debian/{nut-cgi,nut-server}.postinst: add nut to the group
unconditonally, for compatibility with UPSes connected by serial port.
- debian/, debian/{nut,nut-server,nut-client}.install,
debian/rules: Install apport hooks for all top-level nut packages.
- Patch libtool.m4 and configure to support ppc64le.
- Disable systemd unit; it does not check nut.conf whether nut is
configured, and thus fails to start (and the package install).  The
init.d script works well enough for the time being.
- debian/tests/ in the CVE_2012_2944 test, give nut at most
+ 5 seconds to shut down, instead of expecting it to be shut down
immediately after sending the killall.
+ Additional indication on how to run tests for oneiric, precise to 
vivid and wily+
- debian/patches/0006-ups-conf-reorder.patch: Move maxretry setting
above Examples section.
- debian/tests/control : Fix dep8 test failures:
+ Drop python-unit from dep8 dependencies since the python-test
package has now been removed. The unittest module has shipped with
Python since 2.1.
+ Add dep8 test dependency on python, since Python 2 is required and
is not necessarily installed by default any more.
* Dropped changes:
- Fix linking libupsclient : Superseded upstream
- debian/patches/backport-fix-lp753661.patch: extraneous end-of-line now
fixed differently upstream.
- debian/rules: Use udev version for Ubuntu; delta no longer needed as
both versions are earlier than the earliest supported udev in Ubuntu.
[ Steve Langasek ]
* debian/nut-{cgi,server}.postinst: fix 'adduser' logic to be
unconditional, since adduser is guaranteed to be idempotent.

nut (2.7.2-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/NEWS: Fix NEWS file syntax

nut (2.7.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Laurent Bigonville ]
* debian/gbp.conf: Switch to debian-jessie branch
* debian/rules: Revert the changes made in the previous NMU, I don't think
that dropping the .service file that late in the release cycle is a good
idea and anyway this was causing left-over files on upgrade.
* Add wrappers that check the MODE in /etc/nut/nut.conf to avoid starting
the daemons if nut is not configured (Closes: #747863).
[ Michael Fincham ]
* Add patch that detects and corrects unsafe permissions on ~/.nut-monitor
left over from old installations during NUT-Monitor startup.
(Closes: #777706)

nut (2.7.2-1.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Port Ubuntu change to drop upstream systemd unit files to allow
sysvinit files for Jessie. (Closes: #747863)
