for the initial patch! (LP: #1437633)

* Only report that we don't report crashes under upstart if the override
file contains "manual" instead of existence detection.

* Use g_* functions more consistently, including g_file_test which is
a bit clearer than access().

whoopsie-preferences (0.14) vivid; urgency=medium
* Now use service status (upstart and systemd) to notify if crash reporting
is enabled (LP: #1412719)
* Default file for whoopsie settings (only used for report_metrics currently)
is now /etc/whoopsie (LP: #1431432)
* debian/control: add Breaks to ensure we dep on the right whoopsie version
* Update Standards-Version.

whoopsie-preferences (0.13) utopic; urgency=medium
* g_mkdir_with_parents returns 0 on success. Fix a check for its return
code, unbreaking the creation of the automatic reporting state file.
* Check the autoreport status at startup too.

whoopsie-preferences (0.12) trusty; urgency=medium
* Add Breaks:/Replaces: for activity-log-manager-control-center
to cover upgrades from Precise to Trusty, upgrades from later
releases are already covered.  Mirrors Breaks:/Replaces: used in
activity-log-manager for these packages.  (LP: #1306122)

[ Evan Dandrea ]
* Signal to policykit that we'd like a password dialog, if one is
[ Iain Lane ]
* Try to create /var/lib/apport/ to avoid crashing when we attempt to access
a file in there. (LP: #1289097)
