8. By Martin Pitt

* Merge with Debian unstable to get a better fix for LP #256891. Remaining
  Ubuntu changes:
  - debian/control: Drop mailx to Suggests for Ubuntu; it's only used on
    request, and we don't configure an MTA by default.

Argh, forgot to credit the patch author in previous upload, updated

6. By Martin Pitt

Add debian/patches/glob-failure.patch: Prevent logrotate from failing
completely if one glob in any included file fails. This more or less
behaves like an implied # "missingok" now, which isn't correctly parsed in
the current version. Fixing it properly is a very intrusive change.
(LP: #256891)

Drop mailx to Suggests for Ubuntu; it's only used on request, and we
don't configure an MTA by default.

* Patch debian/control to fix FTBFS on kfreebsd-amd64. Perhaps we need
  a build-depends macro for !kfreebsd. (Closes: #361465)
* Use and depend on debhelper version 5.
* Switch from dpatch to quilt.
* cpp-crossbuild.patch: change from using $(CPP) to $(CC) -E.
  Thanks to NIIBE Yutaka. (Closes: #284040)
* dst.patch: fix mktime initialisation so that daylight savings is
  taken into account. Thanks to Holger Weiss. (Closes: #278591)
* man-333996.patch: fix typos in logrotate.8 where "then" should be
  "than". Thanks to Adrian Knoth. (Closes: #333996)
* manpage.patch: Apply missed fixes from #101272. Thanks to J S Bygott.
  (Closes: #335060)
* script-argument.patch: Allow the use of $1 in scripts again.
  (Closes: #330783)
* README.Debian: Document that sysklogd does its own log rotation.
  (Closes: #308963)
* README.Debian: Document how scripts are called. (Closes: #308920)
* Update the copyright file.
* debian/control: remove versioned dependency on cron. The version of
  cron forbidden pre-dates woody (currently "oldstable") by several
  years. This versioned dependency is preventing logrotate being
  installed with bcron. (Closes: #304038, #349150)
* debian/rules: Fix backports, allowing them to use selinux.
  (Closes: #340363)
* uncompressChild-warning.patch: Fix a "might be used uninitialised"
  warning from gcc.

Brown paper bag upload.

42-execlp-bin-sh: Fix major flaw in the last patch... it tries to
execute the logfile. Thanks very much for the quick report, Philipp.
It was my fault, not yours. (Closes: #279965)

2. By Paul Martin <email address hidden>

* Added check to cron.daily (blatantly stolen from exim's) to only
  attempt to run logrotate if it's binary exists. (Closes: #144265)
* Priority high to ensure this minimal bugfix (a violation of a
  "should" policy directive) gets into woody.
