2006-07-27 - Paul Slootman <paul@debian.org>
dirvish (1.2.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Acknowledge NMU fixes.
* Really fix the Perl warning about future reserved word, so that even
though the warning is not given, dirvish-expire actually still does
something :-)
Note that the original reporter for #274943 ("does not delete backups")
was using 1.2-1 which did not suffer from the "fix" done in the NMU, so
tagging "unreproducible, moreinfo" was indeed appropriate.
* Let dirvish-runall look for dirvish in /usr/sbin by default again, lost in
the previous NMU.

* If you use pre-client or post-client and are running the 1.1.2 release be

doc/dirvish/examples/default.conf.root to correct the xdev parameter and
to clarify the exclude patterns.
* Added a note to REAME.Debian that the example cron.d entry is much use if
the system isn't running 24/7; a cron.daily entry with anacron is better
in that situation.
