2017-09-29 - Manuel A. Fernandez Montecelo <mafm@debian.org>
xorg-docs (1:1.7.1-1.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
[ Manuel A. Fernandez Montecelo ]
* Remove d/xorg-docs.links (Closes: #858469)
- /usr/share/X11/doc was broken for years (the file was last modified
in 2010) without anybody complaining, so rather than fixing the
destination it's probably better to just remove this legacy bit
[ Julien Cristau ]
* Switch xorg.freedesktop.org URLs in packaging to https.
[ Helmut Grohne ]
* Mark all packages Multi-Arch: foreign. (Closes: #840813)
2015-10-28 - Julien Cristau <jcristau@debian.org>
xorg-docs (1:1.7.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* New upstream release.
* Let uscan verify tarball signatures.
* Remove Cyril from Uploaders.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6, update Vcs-* control fields.
* Switch to dh with the autoreconf and quilt addons.
* Get rid of debian/xsfbs/.
2013-09-17 - Julien Cristau <jcristau@debian.org>
xorg-docs (1:1.7-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release (X11R7.7).
* Bump debhelper compat to 7.
* Remove David from Uploaders.
* Stop setting CFLAGS in debian/rules (we don't build anything), and don't
use dh_testroot in clean.
* Bump xorg-sgml-doctools, xutils-dev and xmlto build-deps per configure.ac.
* Rebase all patches.
* Disable silent build rules.
* Update xsfbs to avoid re-running the build process in the binary target.
* Adjust xorg-docs.install due to moved specs (?)
2011-01-05 - Cyril Brulebois <kibi@debian.org>
xorg-docs (1:1.6-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release (for X11R7.6).
* Update xorg-docs.install for new files.
* Bump xorg-sgml-doctools build-dep. While not strictly necessary, the
new release brings a bunch of small nice improvements and fixes.
2010-11-12 - Cyril Brulebois <kibi@debian.org>
xorg-docs (1: unstable; urgency=low
[ Julien Cristau ]
* Rename the build directory to not include DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE for no
good reason.  Thanks, Colin Watson!
[ Cyril Brulebois ]
* New upstream release candidate.
* Bump xutils-dev build-dep for new macros.
* Bump xorg-sgml-doctools build-dep.
* Use generated build/general/License.txt to update debian/copyright
since license/copying info is now in XML upstream.
* Update build system:
+ Pass --enable-docs and --enable-specs to configure (the default, but
let's make sure).
+ Pass --with-xmlto and --with-fop, building html+txt+pdf.
+ Add xmlto, fop, and w3m build-dep accordingly.
+ Add 01-disable-ps-generation.diff, no point in shipping pdf and ps.
+ Add 02-disable-automatic-size-detection.diff to pass --noautosize to
+ Add 03-tell-xmlto-to-be-quiet.diff since pdf generation tends to be
waaay too chatty.
+ Accordingly, make build-stamp depend on $(STAMP_DIR)/patch rather
than on $(STAMP_DIR)/prepare
+ Add quilt build-dep again.
+ Kill *.xml, no need to install them.
+ Switch from --list-missing to --fail-missing for additional safety.
+ Rework xorg-docs.install from scratch, installing html+txt+pdf
files, MAINTAINERS, and discarding platforms (the only ones
available aren't of interest for Debian systems).
+ Remove docbook* build-dep, no longer needed.
+ No longer pass --disable-shared, this option is gone.
* Update the symlink: Upstream used to ship in /usr/share/X11/doc,
symlinked from /usr/share/doc/xorg-docs/docs. Upstream now ships in
/usr/share/doc/xorg-doc, so keep /usr/share/X11/doc as a symlink
pointing there.
* Add myself to Uploaders.
