Aptdaemon allows normal users to perform package management tasks, e.g.
refreshing the cache, upgrading the system, installing or removing software
Currently it comes with the following main features:
- Programming language independent D-Bus interface, which allows one to
write clients in several languages
- Runs only if required (D-Bus activation)
- Fine grained privilege management using PolicyKit, e.g. allowing all
desktop user to query for updates without entering a password
- Support for media changes during installation from DVD/CDROM
- Support for debconf (Debian's package configuration system)
- Support for attaching a terminal to the underlying dpkg call
This package contains the aptd script and all the data files required to run
the daemon. Moreover it contains the aptdcon script, which is a command
line client for aptdaemon. The API is not stable yet.

aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu14.1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Various locking fixes (LP: #1831981)
- Implement frontend locking (incl. fixup from 0ubuntu24)
- Adjust locking order to match APT
- Use reverse order for unlocking
* Test suite fixes:
- Fix failing tests
- Make failing tests fail the build again
- debian/tests/control: Depend on gir1.2-vte-2.91, not gir1.2-vte-2.90
2015-10-12 - Brian Murray <brian@ubuntu.com>
aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu14) wily; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/lp1439769-aptdaemon-autoinstall.patch: Display the flag
name in the error message, not the package name.

aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu13) wily; urgency=medium
* Drop Vcs-Bzr from debian/control:
- The branch pointed to is "ubuntu-vivid".  This is obviously incorrect
for wily; and you shouldn't have to do a busywork update of Vcs-Bzr
with each release.
- Uploaders do not have commit rights on the listed branch.  A Vcs-Bzr
field should only point to a branch that uploaders have rights to,
otherwise it can never be authoritative.
* debian/patches/lp1439769-aptdaemon-autoinstall.patch: Take a flag to
indicate whether a requested package is auto-installed.  Thanks to
Michael Vogt <mvo@ubuntu.com>.  Closes LP: #1439769.

aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu12) wily; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/fix-observed-linitian-error.diff: drop Ubuntu patch that
was added this cycle, it's not needed with the recent lintian change
2015-09-30 - Sebastien Bacher <seb128@ubuntu.com>
aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu11) wily; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/lintian_deprecated_error.patch:
- don't list the binary-file-compressed-with-upx lintian error, it was
removed from Debian/Ubuntu and is leading software-center to display
warnings about skype or chrome debs (lp: #1490169)
2015-09-29 - Sebastien Bacher <seb128@ubuntu.com>
aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu10) wily; urgency=medium
* debian/control: let python(3)-aptdaemon Depends on 
gir1.2-packagekitglib-1.0 (<< 0.9) (restrict the version because 
0.9 is incompatible, also that version was uploaded to 
wily-proposed and deleted but some users got it installed, that 
way apt knows there is a conflict to resolve) (lp: #1496292)
* debian/patches/key_value_typo.patch:
- remove trailing "," causing a TypeError, thanks Justin McPherson
2015-09-28 - Iain Lane <iain@orangesquash.org.uk>
aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu9) wily; urgency=medium
* Fix package installation by not considering the "data" which is bogus to
pass to apt. (LP: #1352654)
* Fix undefined NATIVE_ARCH by getting it from the worker.
2015-08-20 - Barry Warsaw <barry@ubuntu.com>
aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu8) wily; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/lp1487087.diff: Always avoid the bogus mock
.assert_called() call.
2015-08-20 - Barry Warsaw <barry@ubuntu.com>
aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu7) wily; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/lp1487087.diff: Added to skip a bogus .assert_called()
call on a mock which no longer exists, but only under Python 3.5.
2015-08-19 - Barry Warsaw <barry@ubuntu.com>
aptdaemon (1.1.1+bzr982-0ubuntu6) wily; urgency=medium
* debian/patches/pep8-accommodations.diff: Added to make the PEP 8 test
not fail autopkgtests due to pep8 tool bogosity.
* debian/patches/fix-observed-linitian-error.diff: Adjust the test to
check for the lintian error actually observed.
