The udisks daemon serves as an interface to system block devices,
implemented via D-Bus. It handles operations such as querying, mounting,
unmounting, formatting, or detaching storage devices such as hard disks
or USB thumb drives.
This package also provides the udisksctl utility, which can be used to
trigger these operations from the command line (if permitted by
Creating or modifying file systems such as XFS, RAID, or LUKS encryption
requires that the corresponding mkfs.* and admin tools are installed, such as
dosfstools for VFAT, xfsprogs for XFS, or cryptsetup for LUKS.

udisks2 (2.7.6-3) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Jeremy Bicha ]
* Update Vcs fields for migration to https://salsa.debian.org/
[ Iain Lane ]
* debian/rules, debian/substvars: Recommend libblockdev-crypto2 in Ubuntu
too - the package is going to main now. (LP: #1757321)
* d/p/0001-integration-test-Wait-longer-after-the-scsi-debug-CD.patch,
Cherry-pick patches from upstream or in one case an upstream PR to fix
testsuite failures. All via Ubuntu.
* d/p/0003-main.c-Properly-remove-sigint-source.patch: Remove GSource
properly - the old way was causing crashes.
* debian/tests/control: Add test-deps on libblockdev-crypto2 and
targetcli-fb, both of which are required by the testsuite.

udisks2 (2.7.3-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix dependency of udisks2-btrfs on libblockdev-btrfs2 (Closes: #876143)
2017-09-12 - Michael Biebl <biebl@debian.org>
udisks2 (2.7.3-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Enable support for LVM2.
Split the lvm2 module into a separate package named udisks2-lvm2.

udisks2 (2.7.3-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Revert accidental deletion of libudisks2.a
2017-09-12 - Michael Biebl <biebl@debian.org>
udisks2 (2.7.3-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream version 2.7.3
* Update symbols file for libudisks2-0
* Demote udftools to Suggests
* Drop obsolete alternative Suggests btrfs-tools
btrfs-progs is available since stretch.
* Drop obsolete cryptsetup-bin Suggests.
This is now handled by libblockdev-crypto2.
* Drop unnecessary libblockdev-lvm2 Suggests.
We don't enable lvm2 support (yet) so there is no reason to have
libblockdev-lvm2 installed.
* Demote libblockdev-mdraid2 to Suggests
libblockdev-mdraid2 will pull in mdadm which is a rather heavy dependency
so we don't want install this dependency by default. If you need RAID
support in udisks make sure to install this libblockdev plugin manually.
(Closes: #873706)
* Demote libblockdev-crypto2 to Recommends.
We want to have working LUKS/cryptsetup support by default but provide
the option for users to not install this dependency if they don't need
this functionality.
* Use new dh_missing helper instead of dh_install --fail-missing
2017-08-30 - Andreas Henriksson <andreas@fatal.se>
udisks2 (2.7.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Depend on blockdev plugins required by udisks2 core (Closes: #873627)
* Add libblockdev plugins used by udisks modules to suggests
