python-pymetar (0.14-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Change build order for multiple python versions to build with the default
python-version first. This prevents creating a versioned dependency on
whichever python version was built first (Closes: 503615).
* This upload and the 0.14-1 upload sponsored by Bernd Zeimetz
<>. Thank you!

python-pymetar (0.14-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New Upstream Release:
- Add "NSC" Non Significant Cloud condition (Closes: 440153).
Thanks, Nicolas Évrard <> for submitting the patch.
* Relicence pymetar.1 to GPL-2 or later, same as pymetar itself.
* Update debian/copyright to match upstream copyright changes.
* Small updates to the control file:
- Build-Depends-Indep on python-support as this is not needed for cleaning.
- Change python-all-dev dependency into python-all, we don't need -dev.
- Bump debhelper versioned dependency to a version python-support doesn't
conflict against
- Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.0, nothing to do for that.
- Add Homepage field to the debian/control file.
* Small updates to the rules file:
- Split dh_installexamples arguments in external file.
- Change argument from --prefix to --root, remove usr/ from path.
* Thanks for NMUing while I was hibernating:
