    2012-02-13 - Colin Watson <> ttf-tiresias (0.1-2ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low * Use maintscript support in dh_installdeb rather than writing out dpkg-maintscript-helper commands by hand. We now simply Pre-Depend on a new enough version of dpkg rather than using 'dpkg-maintscript-helper supports' guards, leading to more predictable behaviour on upgrades.

    2011-07-21 - Paul Wise <> ttf-tiresias (0.1-2) unstable; urgency=low * Team upload. * Drop defoma stuff, since it is obsolete and orphaned * Switch to dh instead of long-style debhelper * Move to "new" fonts section * Font packages don't have ELF binaries, remove ${shlibs:Depends} * Switch to dpkg-source v3.0 format * Add a watch file with comments explaining the upstream situation * Use "Copyright" instead of "(C)" since the later isn't legally valid * Adjust path of the GPL license file * Add a get-orig-source target for creating the tarball

    2008-10-27 - Andrew Starr-Bochicchio <> ttf-tiresias (0.1-1.1) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload * debian/control: - Add Depends on defoma (Closes: #502707)

    2008-05-20 - Gürkan Sengün <> ttf-tiresias (0.1-1) unstable; urgency=low * Initial release. (Closes: #481122)
