Keyczar is an open source cryptographic toolkit designed to make it easier and
safer for developers to use cryptography in their applications. Keyczar
supports authentication and encryption with both symmetric and asymmetric keys.
Some features of Keyczar include:
* A simple API
* Key rotation and versioning
* Safe default algorithms, modes, and key lengths
* Automated generation of initialization vectors and ciphertext signatures
* Java, Python, and C++ implementations
This package provides the Python implementation of Keyczar.

python-keyczar (0.715+ds-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* d/control:
- Switch Maintainer email to my address
- Update Homepage field to new location at GitHub 
* d/copyright:
- Update Source field to new location at GitHub

python-keyczar (0.715+ds-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
- Source is repacked from now on, as the original source tarball contains
the source for the Java and C++ implementations of keyczar as well
* debian/control:
- Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes needed)
- Drop XS-Testsuite, as dpkg now recognizes the Testsuite header, and
dpkg-source automatically adds one when an autopkgtest suite is found
* debian/rules:
- Drop return code checking, pybuild checks the result for us
- Add a get-orig-source target
* debian/watch:
- Upstream moved to GitHub

* debian/control:
- Add Build-Depends for dh-python (for pybuild)
- Lowercase package synopsis
* debian/rules:
- Convert to use pybuild build system
* debian/tests/unittests-default:
- Refresh comments

[ Jakub Wilk ]
* Remove DM-Upload-Allowed; it's no longer used by the archive
* Fix a typo in the package description.
[ Christian Kastner ]
* New upstream release. Closes: #699872
- Expose the CLI tool /usr/bin/keyczart
* debian/copyright:
- Update to machine-readable format v1.0
- Refresh copyright years
* debian/control:
- Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5 (no changes needed)
- Bump debhelper dependency to (>= 9)
- Drop dependency on python-support and bump python-all dependency
to (>= 2.6.6-3~) for dh_python2
- Add X-Python-Version with >= 2.6, thereby implicitly dropping support for
Python 2.5(it used to be supported in the now removed debian/pyversions).
This allows us to simplify some things, such as:
- Drop the Build-Depends for python (>= 2.6.6-14~) | pythons-simplejson.
This was only needed to ensure that either Python 2.5 was not installed
or else that python-simplejson was installed.
- Add Build-Depends for python-setuptools. Upstream switch build mechanism
- Add XS-Testsuite: autopkgtest
* debian/compat:
- Bump debhelper compatibility level to 9
* debian/rules:
- Drop the get-orig-source target (no longer needed)
- Convert build process to dh_python2
- Drop unit test running for Python << 2.6 (no longer supported)
- Remove the egg-info directory during clean
- Upstream moved location of unit tests
* debian/
- Drop (no longer needed)
* debian/pyversions:
- Remove (obsolete)
* debian/tests/*:
- Create an autopkgtest which executes the unit tests using the default
Python interpreter
* debian/watch:
- Update Google Code URLs following recommendations
(apparently, the URLs are stable now, and no longer require a helper)
- The one-letter suffix of the upstream version number really is part of
the version number (ie, the previous "b" was not a "beta" qualifier)
- Explicitly fix one-time broken version number 06b to 0.6b. Upstream
otherwise follows the MAJOR.MINOR(letter) release pattern.
* debian/source/lintian-overrides:
- Add override for debian-watch-may-check-gpg-signature
* debian/manpages
- Create manpage for the keyczart tool
