pacman4console (1.2-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/desktop/pacman4console: renamed to pacman4console.desktop.
Thanks to Markus Koschany <>. (Closes: #738709)
* debian/docs: removed because the screenshot.png file is useless
and the upstream README is a bit deprecated.
* debian/install: updated because a file was renamed and another
was moved to debian/desktop/.
* debian/man/:
- Removed the useless file pacman4console.6.old.
- Updated and improved the pacman4consoleeditor.1.
* debian/pacman4console.xpm: moved to debian/desktop directory.
* debian/patches/Makefile: updated to avoid the upstream
Levels/README install, because the pacman4consoleeditor.1 now has
this information.
* debian/README.Debian: added to gather essential information from
upstream README.
* debian/rules: removed useless lines 'DPKG_EXPORT_BUILDFLAGS' and
'include /usr/share/dpkg/'. Using DH9 turns these
lines obsoletes.

pacman4console (1.2-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Added a desktop entry. Thanks to Markus Koschany <>
for the suggestion. So, created debian/{desktop/pacman4cosole,menu,
pacman4console.xpm}. (Closes: #737997)
* manpages:
- debian/man/: created to group all manpages and their sources.
- pacman4console.1: moved to debian/man/ and updated.
- pacman4consoleedit.1: moved to debian/man/.
* debian/copyright: updated the packaging copyright years.
* debian/install: added to install desktop and pacman4console.xpm files.
* debian/patches:
- Added a new patch (pacman.c) that allows exit or restart after
"game over" message. This was fundamental to add a desktop entry.
This patch gather the old 'fix_array_index' and 'pacman.c' patches.
This patch also provides new features to pacman4console. To see more
details, read the debian/patches/pacman.c from Debian source code.
Special thanks to Yannic Scheper <> that replied me
quickly and made all necessary changes, creating a patch in some
minutes, once the upstream stopped the development.
- fix_array_index: deleted because the pacman.c provides the same
- Removed the .patch extension from all patches.
* debian/README.source: added to explain about new patch.
* debian/source/lintian-overrides: removed as requested by Paul Wise.
Thanks to Paul for explanations about the idea of the GPG sign check.
* debian/watch: improved.
2013-12-27 - Joao Eriberto Mota Filho <>
