PGP::Sign creates and checks detached PGP signatures for textual data
using GnuPG.  Other PGP implementations are also supported with run-time
configuration.  Secret key passphrases are passed via a pipe, and no
temporary files are required for signature generation (but are for
signature verification).

libpgp-sign-perl (0.20-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Upstream doesn't (yet) work with GnuPG v2, so pin the dependencies at
GnuPG v1 for now and force use of gpg1 as the signing and verification
program.  (Closes: #835773)
* Sync packaging with the orig tarball currently in Debian.  This is a
bit of a mess at the moment (the orig tarball in Debian contains a lot
of stuff it shouldn't and is missing some files), but none of the
problems should matter for the Debian build.  This will be cleaned up
properly with the next upstream release.
* Update to debhelper compatibility level V9.
- Use debhelper rule minimization.
- Add ${misc:Depends} dependency.
* Update standards version to 3.9.8.
- Remove ancient, formerly-required versioned dependency on Perl.
- Convert debian/copyright to copyright-format 1.0.
- Reference GPL v1 (due to Perl license) instead of the symlink.
- Add Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser control fields.
* Switch to Debian source package format 3.0 (quilt).
* Add module name to the package long description.
* Merge Build-Depends-Indep into Build-Depends, since this distinction
is not useful when only building Architecture: all packages.
* Add debian/gbp.conf reflecting the branch layout of the default
packaging repository.
* Run wrap-and-sort -ast on the packaging files.
* Use https for the Homepage URL.
* Add signature verification to debian/watch and update the URL.

libpgp-sign-perl (0.20-1) unstable; urgency=low

* Providing binary-arch in debian/rules is required by Policy even if
there are no arch-dependent packages.  Whoops.
2005-11-16 - Russ Allbery <>
libpgp-sign-perl (0.19-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Run make test when building the package.
* Simplify debian/rules.
* Update copyright to my current format and add an explicit packaging
copyright and license statement.
* Update standards version to 3.6.2 (no changes required).
* Update maintainer address.

* Use the recommend format for the Homepage link in the description.
2004-08-08 - Russ Allbery <>
libpgp-sign-perl (0.19-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
