14base-files (4.0.6) unstable; urgency=low
15
16  * Changed the way wtmp, btmp and lastlog are handled. They are no longer
17    recreated at every base-files upgrade. Instead, they are only created
18    once, when base-files is installed by debootstrap. It is really not
19    base-files business to fiddle with those files, as it is documented
20    that removing them is the standard way to disable logging to them.
21    Closes: #488376.

25base-files (4.0.5) unstable; urgency=low
26
27  * Changed awk from Depends to Pre-Depends. Closes: #314571, #469552.
28    This is required to make the awk virtual package to be truly essential,
29    as only essential packages, their predependencies, and the dependencies
30    of their predependencies are guaranteed to be "working at all times".
31    Previously, the packaging system was allowed to remove an awk flavour
32    and install another one in the middle of an upgrade, which may break
33    packages using awk in their preinsts (and in fact, it happened).
34    Tkanks a lot to Steve Langasek for clarifying this issue.
35  * It's still soon to change /etc/debian_version. Please be patient.

41  * Added Apache-2.0 to common-licenses. Closes: #471736.

43  * Fixed typo in README.base. Closes: #475201.

53
54base-files (4.0.2) unstable; urgency=low
55
56  * Changed default /root/.profile so that it sources /root/.bashrc only
57    if the shell is bash. Closes: #364326.

60
61base-files (4.0.1) unstable; urgency=low
62
63  * Added GPL-3 and LGPL-3 to common-licenses, as they are expected to
64    become common licenses. Closes: #431176. Please note that GPL and LGPL
65    will now point to GPL-3 and LGPL-3, as they are the most recent ones.
66    Packages under GPLv2 without "or any later version" must definitely
67    refer to the versioned file, not to the GPL symlink anymore.

73  * Added GFDL-1.2 from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/Licenses/COPYING.DOC-1.2
74    to common-licenses, following policy (Closes: #420599).

84
85base-files (4) unstable; urgency=low
86
87  * Changed issue, issue.net and debian_version to read "4.0".
88  * Changed PATHs in default /etc/profile to not contain /usr/bin/X11,
89    as this is no longer needed by the X packages in etch (Closes: #388586).

92
93base-files (3.1.16) unstable; urgency=low
94
95  * Changed comment in default /etc/nsswitch.conf so that it refers to
96    glibc-doc-reference, not glibc-doc (Closes: #384722).
97
98 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Mon, 28 Aug 2006 18:32:42 +0200
99
100base-files (3.1.15) unstable; urgency=low
101
102  * Added /usr/local/etc, required by FHS (Closes: #383493).
103    [ As usual, please note that this will only affect new installs ].
104    This directory is also allowed to be a symlink to /etc/local, but that's
105    a decision to be made by the end user after installing the system.
106  * Standards-Version: 3.7.2.

122
123base-files (3.1.12) unstable; urgency=low
124
125  * Changed default /usr/share/info/dir so that it does not refer to
126    documentation not available in etch/main (Closes: #362597).

129
130base-files (3.1.11) unstable; urgency=low
131
132  * The file /etc/nsswitch.conf is now created by postinst in the first
133    install (made by debootstrap), and it's no longer a conffile.
134
135 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Sat,  4 Mar 2006 13:26:14 +0100
136
137base-files (3.1.10) unstable; urgency=medium
138
139  * Removed mdns item from hosts line in default /etc/nsswitch.conf, since
140    it does not make everybody happy (Bugs #348578, #348580 and #351990).
141  * Updated default /etc/adjtime to current year.
142
143 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Thu,  9 Feb 2006 18:41:22 +0100
144
145base-files (3.1.9) unstable; urgency=low
146
147  * The file /etc/inputrc is now handled by readline-common.
148  * Changed to section admin to match override file.
149
150 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Fri, 30 Sep 2005 18:51:54 +0200
151
152base-files (3.1.8) unstable; urgency=low
153
154  * Added mdns to hosts line in default /etc/nsswitch.conf to support
155    mDNS when available (Closes: #324954). Suggested by Joey Hess.
156  * Dropped %h from issue.net, as it's not supported by all telnetd
157    daemons and it's not even supported by ssh (Closes: #329682).
158    Thanks to Dave Love for the report.

161
162base-files (3.1.7) unstable; urgency=medium
163
164  * Removed trailing spaces from default inputrc (Closes: #325007).
165
166 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Thu, 25 Aug 2005 20:16:08 +0200
167
168base-files (3.1.6) unstable; urgency=low
169
170  * Removed /usr/doc and /usr/info.
171  * Modified postinst to create /usr/share/info/dir, not /usr/info/dir.
172
173 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Tue, 12 Jul 2005 17:29:48 +0200
174
175base-files (3.1.5) unstable; urgency=medium
176
177  * Updated GPL-2 and LGPL-2.1 from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/Licenses again.
178    There should be no references to the old address anymore (Bug #312586).
179

181
182base-files (3.1.4) unstable; urgency=medium
183
184  * Updated GPL-2 and LGPL-2.1 from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/Licenses,
185    as FSF has moved again (Closes: #312586).
186
187 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Fri, 10 Jun 2005 20:12:06 +0200
188
189base-files (3.1.3) unstable; urgency=low
190
191  * Changed issue, issue.net and debian_release to "testing/unstable".
192    Not that this is a lot useful, but at least is what people expect.
193  * Made /home to be 755 and root:root by default, since nobody finds
194    the sgid bit in such directory useful for anything.
195
196 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Mon,  6 Jun 2005 19:32:20 +0200
197
198base-files (3.1.2) unstable; urgency=low
199
200  * Changed example line in default /root/.bashrc from eval `dircolors` to
201    eval "`dircolors`" as the old form may be dangerous (Closes: #285836).
202    Thanks a lot to Paul Eggert for the report.

205
206base-files (3.1.1) unstable; urgency=low
207
208  * The file /etc/profile is not a conffile anymore. Instead, it is created
209    by postinst in the very first base-files install, made by debootstrap.
210  * Accordingly, removed bash from Replaces field.
211
212 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Tue, 14 Dec 2004 19:06:00 +0100
213
214base-files (3.1.0) unstable; urgency=low
215
216  * Moved PATH definition for root from the default /root/.profile to the
217    default /etc/profile, by popular demand (Closes: #278865).
218  * The file /etc/inputrc is now created by postinst in the first install.
219    Removed libreadline incarnations from Replaces field accordingly.
220    This file will probably be managed by libreadline-common some day.
221

223
224base-files (3.1) unstable; urgency=high
225
226  * Changed issue, issue.net and debian_version to read "3.1".
227

229
230base-files (3.0.16) unstable; urgency=low
231
232  * Changed -a to && in postinst (Closes #254781).
233  * Updated copyright year.

236
237base-files (3.0.15) unstable; urgency=low
238
239  * FAQ: Documented the fact that some FHS "mandatory" directories are
240    only created in the initial install (Closes: #242192).
241  * Do not create /cdrom and /floppy anymore (Closes: #245188).
242  * Use "ln -sf" to create /usr/local/man symlink (Closes: #245687).
243
244 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Mon, 26 Apr 2004 19:44:44 +0200
245
246base-files (3.0.14) unstable; urgency=low
247
248  * Added /var/log/btmp, following /etc/login.defs (Closes: #239587).
249
250 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Wed, 24 Mar 2004 13:40:46 +0100
251
252base-files (3.0.13) unstable; urgency=low
253
254  * Added /srv, /media and /usr/local/share/man (Closes: #230909).
255  * Added /usr/local/man as a symlink to /usr/local/share/man,
256    since FHS says both directories should be "synonymous".
257  * I'm not populating /media because subdirectories are optional.
258    They only must exist "if the corresponding subsystem is installed".
259    Detecting such things is not really base-files business. I would
260    expect debian-installer to create those subdirectories instead.
261  * /cdrom and /floppy will still be created in the first install until
262    debian-installer and/or apt stop using them for new installs.

265
266base-files (3.0.12) unstable; urgency=low
267
268  * Made issue and issue.net generated files, to prevent a double "GNU/"
269    prefix on GNU/K*BSD systems (Closes: #217383).
270
271 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Sun, 26 Oct 2003 21:38:44 +0100
272
273base-files (3.0.11) unstable; urgency=low
274
275  * Updated /etc/inputrc (from readline maintainer). Closes: #213666.

278
279base-files (3.0.10) unstable; urgency=low
280
281  * Use `:' for chown, not `.' (Closes: #204860).

284
285base-files (3.0.9) unstable; urgency=low
286
287  * Prevent OSNAME from having the GNU/ prefix twice (Closes: #200741).
288  * Updated LGPL-2.1 from ftp.gnu.org. Instead of form feeds, the old
289    version was using `^' followed by `L' (Closes: #201867).
290
291 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Mon, 21 Jul 2003 19:25:12 +0200
292
293base-files (3.0.8) unstable; urgency=low
294
295  * Fixed the way /etc/motd is updated so that it still works when md5sum
296    prints a `-' after the md5sum value (Closes: #180920).
297
298 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Sat, 15 Feb 2003 14:30:04 +0100
299
300base-files (3.0.7) unstable; urgency=low
301
302  * Added "Why isn't license `foo' included in common-licenses?" to the FAQ.
303    Thanks to Colin Watson for the suggestion.
304
305 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Sat, 18 Jan 2003 20:32:16 +0100
306
307base-files (3.0.6) unstable; urgency=low
308
309  * Changed /etc/profile so that PS1 isn't set for non-interactive shells.
310    This should make the usual way of testing for interactive shells
311    (checking for PS1) to always work (Closes: #164846).
312  * Changed /etc/motd to better reflect the truth about Debian: s/Most of//
313    and s/freely redistributable/free software/ (Closes: #169543).
314
315 -- Santiago Vila <sanvila@debian.org>  Tue, 19 Nov 2002 22:06:12 +0100
316
317base-files (3.0.5) unstable; urgency=low
318
319  * Added a small FAQ. The current topics are:
320  - Why Debian does not have a profile.d directory?
321  - I upgraded to testing, why /etc/issue does not read "testing"?
322  * Standards-Version: 3.5.7 (do not create or remove doc symlinks).
323    Note: In theory, packages still creating doc symlinks are allowed
324    to blindly assume /usr/doc exists, so /usr/doc will still be part of
325    base-files for some time.
326  * Removed prerm, since it's not required anymore.
327

329
330base-files (3.0.4) unstable; urgency=low
331
332  * /etc/profile does no longer export PS1. This should prevent
333    strange prompts to be shown when switching from bash to a shell which
334    does not understand bash escapes (Closes: #141193).
335  * Set distribution to "testing/unstable".

338
339base-files (3.0.3) unstable; urgency=low
340
341  * Fixed wrong group ownerships under GNU/Hurd. This may also happen under
342    Linux when using the `bsdgroups' mount option, but even in this case
343    it will not happen if the package is built using fakeroot.
344

346
347base-files (3.0.2) unstable; urgency=medium
348
349  * Made /usr/share/doc/base-files/remove-base more robust (Closes: #132969).

352
353base-files (3.0.1) unstable; urgency=medium
354
355  * Modified postinst to use awk only on upgrades, not in the first install.
356    This should help debootstrap (Closes: #130056, #130087).

362  * Restored /usr/doc since it's still required by the system according
363    to the doc transition plan.

379base-files (2.2.14) unstable; urgency=low
380
381  * Created /opt, /etc/opt and /var/opt in the first install.
382    They are mentioned in FHS 2.1 and required in FHS 2.2 (Closes: #118505).
383  * The copyright file now refers to GNU/Linux or GNU/Hurd as appropriate.
384  * Updated README.base and postinst to refer to /usr/share/doc.
385  * Updated default /etc/adjtime to current millenium.

396
397  * s/info readline/info rluserman/ in /etc/inputrc (Closes: #109110).

401
402base-files (2.2.11) unstable; urgency=low
403
404  * In the first install, populate /usr/local even if it exists.
405    Allows /usr/local to be mounted in a separate partition during the
406    install process (Closes: #107662).

409
410base-files (2.2.10) unstable; urgency=low
411
412  * Removed /var/state and /var/state/misc, added /usr/local/games.

456    a codename in /etc/debian_version will never be "right" for everybody, so
