- Use %license instead of %doc [bsc#1082318]
2018-06-28 - tchvatal@suse.com
- Version update to
* Fix directory traversal with dpkg-deb --raw-extract, by guaranteeing
that the DEBIAN pathname does not exist. Closes: #879982
Reported by Jakub Wilk <jwilk@jwilk.net>.
* Rename DPKG_GAIN_ROOT_CMD to DEB_GAIN_ROOT_CMD in the R support, as
the variable is expected to be set by any builder, not just dpkg. And
introduce ephemereal backwards compatibility even though there are no
known users.
* Do not set DEB_GAIN_ROOT_CMD in dpkg-buildpackage when the R value is
<implementations-keywords>, following the specification.
* Specify that DEB_GAIN_ROOT_CMD in R should preserve the environment.
Proposed by Josh Triplett <josh@joshtriplett.org>.
* Specify new DEB_RULES_REQUIRES_ROOT variable for R support.
* Declare R specification as "recommendation, stable" with version 1.0.
* Architecture support:
- Add support for riscv64 CPU. Closes: #822914
Thanks to Manuel A. Fernandez Montecelo <mafm@debian.org>
* Perl modules:
- Dpkg::Vendor::Debian: Use proper %use_feature key. This was causing perl
errors on paths not accapted for fixdebugpath.
Reported by Mattia Rizzolo <mattia@debian.org>, on IRC. Closes: #881051
- Check that $state->{seen} exists instead of $state being just defined.
Fixes regression in dpkg-gensymbols symbols output.
Thanks to Dmitry Shachnev <mitya57@debian.org>. Closes: #880166
- Mark hurd-i386 as having gcc builtin PIE in Dpkg::Vendor::Debian.
Requested by Samuel Thibault <sthibault@debian.org>.
