Recent revisions

11. By Colin Watson on 2010-04-06

[ Julian Andres Klode ]
* Port the code to the new python-apt API and require at least
  version of python-apt (closes: #571744).

[ Colin Watson ]
* Convert to source format 3.0 (native).
* Policy version 3.8.4: no changes required.

10. By Colin Watson on 2009-11-26

* Add 'make check' which runs pychecker if available, and make it pass.
* Change default distribution to lucid.
* Update kubuntu-meta example in germinate-update-metapackage(1) (add
  netbook; remove hppa; add armel).

9. By Colin Watson on 2009-10-21

[ Colin Watson ]
* Fix interpretation of architecture-specific regex seed entries where the
  regex contains a character class (which looks a bit like an architecture
  specification in the wrong light).

[ Loïc Minier ]
* Document --source-mirror option in germinate(1).

8. By Colin Watson on 2009-08-10

* Make germinate-update-metapackage write out a metapackage-map file,
  which is useful for later determining the set of seeds and metapackages
  to build.
* Add a debhelper addon, useful for building metapackages.

7. By Colin Watson on 2009-07-26

* Use people.canonical.com everywhere rather than people.ubuntu.com.
* Change default distribution to karmic.
* Convert to debhelper 7. I've taken some care to avoid use of the new
  override targets since Ubuntu hardy-jaunty don't have a debhelper that
  supports those.
* Policy version 3.8.2: no changes required.

6. By Colin Watson on 2009-06-03

Fix handling of archives that only contain uncompressed index files
(thanks to Chris Cheney for the report).

5. By Colin Watson on 2009-03-06

If germinate-update-metapackage fails, just print a message on stderr
and exit 1, rather than raising RuntimeError (LP: #323714).

4. By Colin Watson on 2009-02-02

Change default distribution to jaunty.

3. By Colin Watson on 2008-07-18

Consider whether there are any moves as well as additions or removals
when deciding whether to run dch.

2. By Colin Watson on 2006-10-03

When processing whole-source seed entries, only include real packages.
This avoids slews of warnings for binaries that only exist on other
architectures, and avoids mistakenly picking up virtual packages.
