    2015-04-10 - Sandro Tosi <> transmission (2.84-1) experimental; urgency=medium * Acknowledge NMUs: thanks to Boris Pek, Thomas Goirand, Markus Koschany; Closes: #737366, #718624, #754982, #757365, #718624, #734467 * [323b2ad] Set me as maintaner, Leo as uploader (with Leo's blessing) * [3eecf54] removed Bugs field, as it was causing bugs to be sent to upstream; Closes: #740944 * [e5bd0af] drop gconf integration, no longer needed; Closes: #741069, #745936, #756823 * [0432bb4] bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes needed) * [fd2b694] transition to libsystemd-dev; Closes: #779760

    2014-12-10 - Markus Koschany <> transmission (2.84-0.2) unstable; urgency=medium * Non-maintainer upload. * transmission-daemon.postinst: - Change home directory of transmission-daemon to /var/lib/transmission-daemon from /home/debian-transmission. Thanks to Alex Peters for the report. (Closes: #734467) - Disable password authentication for debian-transmission user for improved security. Logins with e.g. SSH RSA keys are still possible. - Check existence of debian-transmission user with getent passwd debian-transmission instead of id. * Add transmission-daemon.preinst: - Fix permissions in /var/lib/transmission-daemon and use /var/lib/transmission-daemon as the new home directory. - Move old configuration files to appropriate config directory /var/lib/transmission-daemon/.config/transmission-daemon. All together this ensures that transmission-daemon will not segfault when systemd is the default init system. Thanks to Andrei Popescu and Antoine Legonidec for the report and additional tests. (Closes: #718624) * transmission-daemon.links: - Link settings.json from /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json to /var/lib/transmission-daemon/.config/transmission-daemon. - Link /var/lib/transmission-daemon/.config/transmission-daemon to /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info due to compatibility reasons with the old sysv-rc init script settings. * transmission-daemon.dirs: - Do not create /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info anymore.
