This package contains some ribosomal RNA BLAST databases distributed
as part of the NCBI C Toolkit that are too large and specialized to
include in ncbi-data.  Specifically, it contains the databases
Combined16SrRNA, LSURef_93.fasta, LSU_nomito_nochloro_noplastid,
SSURef_93.fasta, and SSU_nomito_nochloro_noplastid, along with alias
files to facilitate searching some of them in conjunction with
databases included in ncbi-data.

ncbi-tools6 (6.1.20170106-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/rules: Find indirectly needed libraries via -rpath-link rather
than LD_LIBRARY_PATH; the -rpath-link approach is generally saner, and
in particular has a decent shot at fully fixing cross-building.

ncbi-tools6 (6.1.20170106-2) unstable; urgency=medium

ncbi-tools6 (6.1.20160908-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Stop building the transitional blast2 package (taken over by ncbi-blast+)
and retire its remaining vestiges (the bibliograpy and autopkgtest setup).
* connect/ncbi_util.c: Fix a FTBFS on hurd-i386 by conditionally using a
more appropriate header for PAGE_SIZE (<mach/vm_param.h>).
* Reinstate taxblast (now part of ncbi-tools-bin, and correctly documented
as a postprocessing tool), accidentally dropped with the rest of blast2.
