pidentd (3.0.19.ds1-8) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix uses-deprecated-compression-for-data-tarball.
* Build with OpenSSL 1.0.2 in stretch.
Closes: #828501
* Standards-Version is 3.9.8

pidentd (3.0.19.ds1-7.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Add debian/pidentd.tmpfile and debian/pidentd.links (Closes: #796689)
- create runtimedirectory using tmpfiles.d instead of via init-script.
* Source LSB init-functions in pidentd init script
- this allows systemd LSB hook to redirect direct init script
invocations to use systemctl instead. Caught by lintian.
* Drop explicit bzip2 compression in debian/rules and use default
- these days default (xz for source format > 1.0) is better
and this avoids lintian error about bzip2 being deprecated.
* Include dpkg to export hardening flags
- fixes missing hardening options in built binaries as caught by lintian.
