    2012-04-11 - Magnus Holmgren <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-9) unstable; urgency=low * Switch to rsvg-convert for making PNG icons (Closes: #666634). * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3.

    2012-01-29 - Magnus Holmgren <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-8) unstable; urgency=low * typeerrors.patch: Fix two cases of attempting to pass floats to functions expecting ints: - In the motion-notify-event callback of the chatboxes, which should change the cursor into a hand when over a URL (LP: #923363). - In the button-press-event callback of the buttons making up the board, which should produce an arrow to allow tiles to be placed by typing letters.

    2011-11-11 - Magnus Holmgren <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-7) unstable; urgency=low * max-players.patch: Before denying a player from joining a game because the maximum number of players has been reach, check whether the player is rejoining a game he or she is already part of (Closes: #633838). Thanks to Christian von Kietzell. * Add build-indep and build-arch targets.

    2011-05-04 - Magnus Holmgren <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-6) unstable; urgency=low * Move Python modules and scripts to /usr/share/games/pyscrabble/python and put symlinks in /usr/games and /usr/sbin. * installation.patch: Reduce the size by moving back code that was unnecessarily moved from to

    2011-04-25 - Magnus Holmgren <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-5) unstable; urgency=low * Convert package to source format 3.0 (quilt), meaning renaming the patches and converting their headers as well as dropping README.source. * Convert to using dh_python2 (Closes: #616983). * Run with --install-layout=deb to get filesystem layout right. * Bump Debhelper compat level to 7. * pyscrabble-server.README.Debian: Clarify that pyscrabble-server is not intended to be run from the command line directly (Closes: #611833). * hosts.patch: Improve the code for adding new entries to the Additional Hosts list: * Fix C&P bug that caused the Game port to be validated twice but the Web port not at all. * Pre-fill the default port numbers to help the user (Closes: #566666). * Don't destroy the dialog until the entered values have been extracted. * Increase Standards-Version to 3.9.2 without changes needed.

    2009-09-22 - Magnus Holmgren <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-4) unstable; urgency=low * Merge changes from Ubuntu, except for the Replaces added to deal with the typo in in 1.6.2-3ubuntu3, which should be gone by now. * Move pyscrabble-server from /usr/games to /usr/sbin (Closes: #506811). * debian/rules: Drop the call to dh_desktop. * Upgrade to Standards-Version 3.8.3. + Add debian/README.source. * debian/rules: Rearrange targets.

    2009-04-16 - Brian Murray <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-3ubuntu4) jaunty; urgency=low * debian/pyscrabble-common.install: resolve typographic error (LP: #362080)

    2009-04-14 - Steve Langasek <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-3ubuntu3) jaunty; urgency=low * debian/rules: pass --prefix=/usr to install, without which the package tries to install to /usr/local under python2.6.

    2009-04-13 - Steve Langasek <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-3ubuntu2) jaunty; urgency=low * Revert the previous change; python2.4-zodb no longer exists, and depending on python2.4-zodb never gave correct results anyway because we were depending on python instead of python2.4 for the interpreter. * debian/pyscrabble-{common,server}.install: installation now to python dist-packages directory, instead of site-packages. (This will require a fix for bug 350016 in python2.6 before it can be built.)

    2008-08-29 - Riccardo Coccioli <> pyscrabble (1.6.2-3ubuntu1) intrepid; urgency=low * Modify dependency python-zodb to python2.4-zodb in debian/control for the python-zodb -> python2.4-zodb transition (LP: #262713)
