[ Anthony Fok ]
* Merged 0.5.91-0ubuntu12 from Ubuntu.  Many thanks to Zhengpeng Hou
and others for their great works!  Remaining differences:
- Do not build skim-scim-pinyin for Debian (will do so in -2).
- Keep Ming Hua's 10_missing-header.dpatch (#define Use_C_STRING)
as per upstream practice rather than "#include <cstring>".
- Do not install /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/scim-pinyin.  TBD.
* debian/rules:
- Use -O2 instead of -O
- configure: --disable-skim-support for now.
- build: $(MAKE) distclean DIST_SUBDIRS='m4 src data intl po' (no skim)
* debian/copyright:
- Copyright (C) 2002-2005 (was 2004).

* Introduce 10_missing-header dpatch, adding missing <cstring> header in a
few files and fixing FTBFS with GCC 4.3.  (Closes: #441594)
* Use "dpkg-query -W" in scim-chinese's preinst script to check conffiles
instead of parsing /var/lib/dpkg/status directly.
* Put upstream homepage into the Homepage field of the source package
instead of the Description field of the binary package.
