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
