    2015-12-30 - Jan Dittberner <> python-pkginfo (1.2.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium [ Zygmunt Krynicki ] * New upstream release * debian/watch: use the new pypi redirector * debian/patches/fix-tests-on-python3.4: drop, applied upstream * debian/patches/fix-configparser-import: ditto * NOTE: Tests fail so postponing further work [ Jan Dittberner ] * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (No changes) * remove unneeded override_dh_auto_clean * Use dh_auto_test * Disable those tests not working in Debian build via patches * Removed tests from binary packages

    2014-04-21 - Zygmunt Krynicki <> python-pkginfo (1.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium * Team upload * Use pybuild * Add a patch that fixes unit tests when running on python3.4 * Add a patch that fixes pkginfo executable when using python3.4 * Add a new 'python3-pkginfo' binary package and move the main executable and the manual page there. This is a compromise between adding a new binary package (seems wasteful) and renaming all executables to have the interpreter version (against the python3 policy) * Adjust the 'python-pkginfo-doc' package to build with python3 and to make sense for both versions of the library

    2014-02-22 - Jan Dittberner <> python-pkginfo (1.1-1) unstable; urgency=low [ Jakub Wilk ] * Use canonical URIs for Vcs-* fields. [ Jan Dittberner ] * New upstream version * debian/rules: create pkginfo/tests/sneaky egg info to make the unit tests work and cleanup after testing * debian/control: bump Standards-Version (no changes) * run wrap-and-sort (changed debian/control and debian/copyright)

    2012-10-22 - Jan Dittberner <> python-pkginfo (0.9.1-1) unstable; urgency=low * Initial release. (Closes: #691172)
