Spellutils is a suite of programs which are used to isolate some
parts from various types of files and hand them over to another
program which may change the texts; it is typically a spell checker.
Afterwards the possibly changed text parts are copied back in place
in the original file.
The newsbody program is intended for use on mail and news messages;
it can e.g. ignore headers, quoted material and signatures.
The pospell program is for use on translated strings in .po files.

spellutils (0.7-7) unstable; urgency=low
* QA upload.
* debian/control:
- Add ${misc:Depends} to depends line.
- Bump Standards Version. Required changes (build-{arch,indep}
targets) are already implemented in this upload.
* debian/copyright: Fix unversioned GPL version.
* debian/rules:
- Use hardened build flags.
- Fix lintian "debian-rules-ignores-make-clean-error".
- Fix lintian "debian-rules-missing-recommended-target".
- Do not remove po/cat-id-tbl.c on clean.
* Revert config.{sub,guess} and aclocal.m4 to ancient upstream files to
minimize diff. This does not affect build, dh-autoreconf is used.
* Add German translation. Thanks Chris Leick (Closes: #565379).
2014-09-12 - Agustin Martin Domingo <agmartin@debian.org>
spellutils (0.7-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* QA upload.
* Change ownership to the Debian QA group. Thanks for all the work, Ray
Dassen (JHM).
* Use dh-autoreconf to update autotools stuff (Closes: #727973, #744514).
* intl/Makefile.in: Comment ancient and unused stuff to work around
missing separator (did you mean TAB instead of 8 spaces?) errors
(Closes: #750342).
* debian/control:
- Add Vcs-* headers for spellutils collab-maint repo.
- Add hunspell as another possible spellchecker.

2002-07-07 - J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) <jdassen@debian.org>
spellutils (0.7-4) unstable; urgency=low

spellutils (0.7-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed auto* invocation order which broke some ports.
* Don't try to compile -Werror as the usage string in pospell.c exceeds the
minimal string length C89 compilers must support, causing gcc 3 to issue
a warning.

spellutils (0.7-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Initial Release. (Closes: #136820)

* [lib.c] Prefer mkstemp to tmpnam.
[pospell.1, newsbody.1] Mention mkstemp as well.
* [pospell.c, newsbody.c] Include config.h if available so _GNU_SOURCE is
defined for strsignal.
