D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
terms of complexity.
This package provides development files required to compile main-loop
integration modules for python-dbus, such as dbus.mainloop.pyqt5 provided
by PyQt. It is Python-version-independent: packages that build-depend
on python-dbus-dev should also build-depend on python-dbus,
python3-dbus, python-dbus-dbg and/or python3-dbus-dbg.

dbus-python (1.2.6-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
- d/copyright: Update
- d/control: Update dependencies
- dbus-glib is no longer required
* debian/gbp.conf: use DEP-14 branch names
* Standards-Version: 4.1.3
- Promote -dbg packages from extra to optional priority
* Advance to debhelper compat level 11
- do not explicitly use dh-autoreconf, it is now the default
* debian/copyright: Fully switch to machine-readable format
* debian/watch: Use https
* debian/watch, debian/upstream/signing-key.asc: Look for a signature
* debian/python-dbus.postinst: Remove cleanup code for very old
(pre-2006) versions. Upgrades that skip a stable release are not
supported, so upgrades that skip 5 stable releases are right out.
* Set Rules-Requires-Root to no
* d/control: Set Vcs-* to point to
* d/rules: Prefer "set -e; ..." over "set -e && ..." due to the
side-effects of && under set -e
* python3-dbus-dbg: Depend on ${python3:Depends}, not ${python:Depends}
* Install .pc file into /usr/share to be nice to cross-compilers.
It does not actually contain anything architecture-specific.
* Enable bindnow hardening
* Install most documentation in /u/s/d/python-dbus-doc with symlinks
in /u/s/d/python{,3}-dbus

dbus-python (1.2.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
- dbus.version is a tuple again (Closes: #816729)
- includes headers in a consistent order (Closes: #749133)
* Update debian/copyright
* Update build tests: they no longer need to edit the dbus-glib
main loop module to be compilable out-of-tree
* Standards-Version: 3.9.7 (no changes needed)
* Normalize packaging via wrap-and-sort -abst
2016-02-22 - Simon McVittie <>
dbus-python (1.2.2-2) experimental; urgency=medium
* Enable the new python[3]-dbus-tests packages that were disabled in
the previous upload
2016-02-22 - Simon McVittie <>
dbus-python (1.2.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
- build-depend on autoconf-archive, now required for autoreconf
- explicitly set build system to autoconf since there is now a stub
- d/copyright: update
* Switch Vcs-Git to https (see #810378)
* Remove dbus.mainloop.qt recommendation as requested by Qt maintainers
(Closes: #802659)
* Run dh_install with --list-missing to guard against mistakes
* Override lintian warnings about confusing dbus with D-Bus: we are
careful to use both terms correctly
* python-dbus-dev: add missing dependency on libdbus-1-dev
* Enable build-time testing
- build-depend on dbus
* Add infrastructure for installed-tests for architecture-specific
builds, and add corresponding autopkgtests
- disable installed-tests for the architecture-indep build, which is
only there for the documentation
- temporarily disable the new packages for this upload,
to avoid the NEW queue
2016-01-20 - Simon McVittie <>
dbus-python (1.2.0-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Update Vcs-Browser to use https and cgit
* python-dbus: stop depending on python-dbus-dev (Closes: #673779)
* Standards-Version: 3.9.6 (no changes required)
* Install arch-independent documentation and development files
with "make install-data", fixing FTBFS in arch-all-only builds
* Build-depend on dh-python
- transcode debian/rules to UTF-8 to support this
* d/control: mention dbus.mainloop.pyqt5 instead of dbus.mainloop.qt.
Thanks to Dmitry Shachnev. (Part of #802659)
* d/control: stop mentioning python-gobject-2 as an alternative.
to python-gi. Thanks to Dmitry Shachnev. (Part of #802659)
