This package provides the generic resource jobs. It is used together
alongside with PlainBox.
Jobs are smallest units of testing that can be performed by PlainBox.
All jobs have an unique name. There are many types of jobs, some are fully
automated others are fully manual.
Resources are collections of key-value data sets that are generated by
special resource jobs. They are extensively used to indicate hardware or
software dependencies. For example a bluetooth test may indicate it
requires bluetooth hardware and appropriate software packages installed.

plainbox-provider-resource-generic (0.19-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
* List of bug fixes and enhancements:
* Allow debian/rules 'clean' to fail so that plainbox doesn't have to be
installed to build the source package in a clean tree. 
* debian/control: Use the new email address for the team
* debian/control: Depend on more recent version of plainbox to get the
packaging meta-data unit which blocks validation.
* debian/control, debian/rules: Depend on python3-debian for plainbox
packaging system integration. Activate plainbox packaging integration
through "./ packaging", "X-Plainbox-Provider: yes" and
${plainbox:Depends} and similar. This lets plainbox look at packaging
meta-data units contained in the provider being packaged (at, .txt
and .pxu files) and determine appropriate dependencies. This lessens the
maintenance burden on the package maintainer and shifts it onto the
upstream developers to provide accurate packaging meta-data for each
specific distribution. This also means that separate packaging for similar
distributions (Debian, Ubuntu and bleeding-edge Ubuntu PPA is far easier
to work with as bulk of the work is shared).

plainbox-provider-resource-generic (0.17-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release 
* debian/copyright: refresh dates 
* debian/rules: rename provider directories to avoid having colon in any
filesystem path 
* debian/control: bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no change required) 
* debian/upstream/signing-key.asc: Re-export the public key of Sylvain
Pineau (using gpg --armor --export-options export-minimal --export
'7ED72CD1'). The old key there didn't validate and I'm not quite sure
whose key that was. 
* debian/watch: escape one more dot
