scotch (6.0.4.dfsg1-8) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Don't halt on test errors for powerpcspe
(may segfault on INTSIZE64, but the default INT is still useful)
* Skip tests altogether on hurd, m68k (their timeout and qemu test
failures can't simply be ignored).
* Create a fill-in man page scotch_binaries.1 to cover sundry
binaries scotch_esmumps, scotch_gbase, acpl, amk_grf, mcv for which
a man page is not available. Closes: #883824.
* Install with executable [pt]scotch.install to distinguish scotch
from ptscotch binaries at package build time.
* debian patch fix_manpages.patch fixes errors using quotes '' at
the beginning of lines in gout and dgscat man pages.
* Use automatic symbol packages (-dbgsym) instead of old -dbg packages
* Standards-Version: 4.1.2

scotch (6.0.4.dfsg1-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Don't halt on test errors on hurd, m68k:
- hurd times out on buildd during build-time checks
- m68k segfaults inside the qemu emulator used for builds

scotch (6.0.4.dfsg1-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* debian/rules: provide path to built libs (LD_LIBRARY_PATH) when
running build-time checks.
- should enable tests to run successfully, so reinstate
halt-on-error for checks
* -DSCOTCH_PTHREAD_AFFINITY_LINUX (pthread_setaffinity_np) is not
supported by hurd (kfreebsd does support it)
2017-11-26 - Drew Parsons <>
scotch (6.0.4.dfsg1-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* debian/rules: apply "set -e" at the build step to halt on build
error. Closes: #865671.
- treat tests (make check) as information-only, don't halt on
check failure
* improve thread handling with -DSCOTCH_PTHREAD_NUMBER=2 and

scotch (6.0.4.dfsg1-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Rename correct-ptscotch-header.patch as include_headers.patch:
include scotch.h in [par]metis.h to define SCOTCH_Num.
* Include stdio.h in scotch.h (in C).
2017-11-10 - Drew Parsons <>
scotch (6.0.4.dfsg1-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Reorganise debian's Makefile_*.inc makefile fragments to use a
common CFLAGS and LDFLAGS (defined in debian/rules).
* add HAVE_SYS_TIME_H to hurd flags to ensure timeval is defined.
Closes: #881200.
