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 a Python interface to D-Bus.
See the dbus description for more information about D-Bus in general.

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)
