D-Bus is a message bus, used for sending messages between applications.
Conceptually, it fits somewhere in between raw sockets and CORBA in
terms of complexity.
This package provides development files required to compile main-loop
integration modules for python-dbus, such as dbus.mainloop.pyqt5 provided
by PyQt. It is Python-version-independent: packages that build-depend
on python-dbus-dev should also build-depend on python-dbus,
python3-dbus, python-dbus-dbg and/or python3-dbus-dbg.

dbus-python (1.2.8-3) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Ondřej Nový ]
* d/tests: Use AUTOPKGTEST_TMP instead of ADTTMP
* d/changelog: Remove trailing whitespaces
[ Simon McVittie ]
* Rename d/tests/control.autodep8 to d/tests/control.
This name is supported since autodep8 0.16 and autopkgtest 5.7.
* Don't install the detailed ChangeLog (upstream git history),
only the user-facing summary in NEWS.
* Standards-Version: 4.3.0 (no further changes)
2018-05-09 - Simon McVittie <>
dbus-python (1.2.8-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* d/p/cross-test-client-Wait-until-default-method-timeout-for-E.patch,
Fix a long-standing race condition in the automated tests that caused
FTBFS on armhf around 6% of the time (Closes: #898158)
* Remove X-Python{,3}-Version annotations. The required versions are the
oldest supported in oldstable, so the annotations are unnecessary.
* Run tests with LC_ALL=C.UTF-8, to avoid trying to print localized
messages in a LC_CTYPE that might not support them
2018-05-04 - Simon McVittie <>
dbus-python (1.2.8-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
* Standards-Version: 4.1.4 (no changes required)
* d/tests/build*: Silence some irrelevant warnings
* Set Testsuite: autopkgtest-pkg-python to opt-in to standard autodep8
* Use dh_sphinxdoc
* Override lintian warning for use of python-sphinx. The Python 2
version of dbus-python has slightly more API than the Python 3
version, which we should document until Python 2 becomes completely
* Use dh_missing with --fail-missing
* Add build- and test-dependencies on python[3]-tap
2018-01-29 - Simon McVittie <>
dbus-python (1.2.6-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
- d/copyright: Update
- d/control: Update dependencies
- dbus-glib is no longer required
* debian/gbp.conf: use DEP-14 branch names
* Standards-Version: 4.1.3
- Promote -dbg packages from extra to optional priority
* Advance to debhelper compat level 11
- do not explicitly use dh-autoreconf, it is now the default
* debian/copyright: Fully switch to machine-readable format
* debian/watch: Use https
* debian/watch, debian/upstream/signing-key.asc: Look for a signature
* debian/python-dbus.postinst: Remove cleanup code for very old
(pre-2006) versions. Upgrades that skip a stable release are not
supported, so upgrades that skip 5 stable releases are right out.
* Set Rules-Requires-Root to no
* d/control: Set Vcs-* to point to
* d/rules: Prefer "set -e; ..." over "set -e && ..." due to the
side-effects of && under set -e
* python3-dbus-dbg: Depend on ${python3:Depends}, not ${python:Depends}
* Install .pc file into /usr/share to be nice to cross-compilers.
It does not actually contain anything architecture-specific.
* Enable bindnow hardening
* Install most documentation in /u/s/d/python-dbus-doc with symlinks
in /u/s/d/python{,3}-dbus
2016-03-06 - Simon McVittie <>
dbus-python (1.2.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
- dbus.version is a tuple again (Closes: #816729)
- includes headers in a consistent order (Closes: #749133)
* Update debian/copyright
* Update build tests: they no longer need to edit the dbus-glib
main loop module to be compilable out-of-tree
* Standards-Version: 3.9.7 (no changes needed)
* Normalize packaging via wrap-and-sort -abst
2016-02-22 - Simon McVittie <>
dbus-python (1.2.2-2) experimental; urgency=medium
* Enable the new python[3]-dbus-tests packages that were disabled in
the previous upload
