emacs (1:25.2+1-11) unstable; urgency=medium
* Add (>= 1:25) restriction to emacs metapackage dependencies.
Without this it was possible to end up with two empty metapackages
installed instead of the expected metapackage and actual package.
Thanks to Shin Yoshida for reporting the problem and Sven Joachim
for noting the solution. (Closes: 906534)
* Don't unexpectedly modify the byte order mark.  Add
0014-Emacs-should-no-longer-unexpectedly-alter-the-byte-o.patch to
fix the problem.  Thanks to Vincent Lefevre for reporting the
problem and Eli Zaretskii for the patch. (Closes: 883434)

emacs (1:25.2+1-10) unstable; urgency=medium
* Handle the emacs-{gtk,lucid,nox} doc dir transition manually.
Before the unversioning, these packages were in a different source
package (emacs-defaults) and were arch all.  Since
dpkg-mainscript-helper can't hande "all to any" transitions
(https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=813455), clean
up manually in the preinsts.  Thanks to Sven Joachim for reporting
the problem and indentifying the underlying cause.

emacs (1:25.2+1-9) unstable; urgency=medium
* Disable the eieio-test-37-obsolete-name-in-constructor test.  Its
behavior is unpredictable, and it was causing some buildd builds
to fail (cf. https://debbugs.gnu.org/24503).  Add
0013-Disable-eieio-test-37-obsolete-name-in-constructor.patch to
fix the problem, and thanks to Aaron M. Ucko for reporting it, and
J. Smith for tracking down the upstream issue. (Closes: 879020)
* Ensure /usr/share/doc/emacs-{gtk,lucid,nox} symlink is
established.  Use dir_to_symlink to make sure the new symlink to
emacs-common is correctly established if we're upgrading from the
emacs-defaults packages that had a real directory.  Thanks to
Andreas Beckmann for reporting the problem. (Closes: 903779)
* Have emacs-{gtk,lucid,nox} replace all the related emacs25
packages.  Add "emacs-gtk (<< 1:25), emacs-lucid (<< 1:25),
emacs-nox (<< 1:25)" to the "Replaces:" for emacs-gtk,
emacs-lucid, and emacs-nox to avoid conflicts over
/usr/share/emacs/25.2/etc/DOC while unpacking.  Thanks to Axel
Beckert for reporting the problem and Adrian Bunk and Sven Joachim
for help with the solution. (Closes: 904957)

emacs (1:25.2+1-8) unstable; urgency=medium
* Move unversioned emacs packages from experimental to unstable.
2018-05-27 - Rob Browning <rlb@defaultvalue.org>
emacs (1:25.2+1-7) experimental; urgency=medium
* Unversion the emacs packages.  Remove the major version from all
of the packages.  The flexibility provided no longer appears worth
the complexity given the more frequent upstream releases, and
backward-compatability across them.
* Update debian/patches for emacs25 to emacs migration.
* Rename emacsXY to emacsXY-gtk.
* Fix dbg package self-dependencies.
* Stop versioning packages; change emacs25 to emacs.
* Move mail-host-address and gnus-nntpserver-file to new
* Move emacs binary metapackage to this package.  Add epoch so that
new versions of the metapackage will be higher than the last
standalone version (47.0).
* Handle local emacs/site-lisp here instead of in emacsen-common.
* Depend on emacsen-common (>= 3.0.0) This will complete the
transfer of the emacs metapackage namespace to the emacs source
package as a new concrete emacs flavor.
* Add emacs23, emacs24, and emacs25 transitional packages.
* debian/control: change priority extra to optional as per policy.
* Have binary flavor packages depend on emacs-common for doc
