This package provides the development tools (including dpkg-source)
required to unpack, build and upload Debian source packages.
Most Debian source packages will require additional tools to build;
for example, most packages need make and the C compiler gcc.

dpkg (1.19.6ubuntu1.1) disco; urgency=medium
* Cherry-pick upstream fix for trigger loops (LP: #1828639):
- dpkg: Split the trigger dependtry into two, the second of which will be
the one checking trigger cycles when deferring trigger processing due to
unsatisfiable dependencies. Closes: #928429

dpkg (1.19.6ubuntu1) disco; urgency=medium
* Merge from current Debian testing; remaining Ubuntu changes:
- Change native source version/format mismatch errors into warnings
until the dust settles on Debian bug 737634 about override options.
- Add DPKG_UNTRANSLATED_MESSAGES environment check so that higher-level
tools can get untranslated dpkg terminal log messages while at the
same time having translated debconf prompts.
- Special-case arm{el,hf} ELF objects in Shlibs/Objdump.pm for multilib.
- Map unqualified package names of multiarch-same packages to the native
arch instead of throwing an error, so that we don't break on upgrade
when there are unqualified names stored in the dpkg trigger database.
- Apply a workaround from mvo to consider ^rc packages as multiarch,
during the dpkg consistency checks. (see LP: 1015567 and 1057367).
- dpkg-gencontrol: Fix Package-Type override handling for ddeb support.
- Add Zstd compression and decompression support for binary packages.

dpkg (1.19.6) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Guillem Jover ]
* libdpkg: Add a new TAR_FORMAT_UNKNOWN enum value.
* libdpkg: Set tar_entry to zero on tar_entry_destroy(), to avoid double
free()s and the subsequent crashes.
* libdpkg: Handle non end-of-tape errors from tar_header_decode().
* libdpkg: Use ERANGE instead of EINVAL for tar_atol8() out-of-range error.
* dpkg-gencontrol: Check presence of package build dir before traversing it.
* Perl modules:
- Dpkg::Source::Package::V1: Change default build option style to -sa.
Using -sA by default means the user might lose data on overwrite if
there is already a directory with the same name laying around.
Closes: #910737
- Dpkg::Source::Package: Handle Format field being undefined. On source
format 1.0, the default is for the debian/source/format file not being
present, which means we'll start with an empty Format field name.
Regression introduced in dpkg 1.19.3.
* Packaging:
- Update usertags.
- Install a lintian profile for dpkg based on the debian profile, so that
we can suppress Debian-specific tags, such as the controversial one on
vendor-specific patch series files.
- Add Breaks on lsb-base due to start-stop-daemon exposing breakage in
the killproc function from /lib/lsb/init-functions. Closes: #923861
* Test suite:
- Stop requiring (pseudo-)root in the functional test suite.
- Export and move TESTDATA definition close to the PATH definition.
- Quote the 'yes' command to make a comment clearer.
[ Updated programs translations ]
* Dutch (Frans Spiesschaert). Closes: #924776
[ Updated scripts translations ]
* German (Helge Kreutzmann).
[ Updated man pages translations ]
* Dutch (Frans Spiesschaert). Closes: #924777
