debian/rules: install changelog, LP: #401229

19. By Dustin Kirkland  on 2009-07-17

debian/rules: ensure that this package isn't *totally* empty,
so install docs, was causing nasty failures on upgrades, LP: #400462

18. By Dustin Kirkland  on 2009-07-16

[ Dustin Kirkland ]
* control, dirs, install, rules: this package is now just a placeholder,
  depending on libpam-modules which provides pam_motd; empty out the
  installed contents of this package; leaving the sources in bzr for
  historical purposes (ah, memories); LP: #399071, #400131

[ Loïc Minier ]
* Call dh_installchangelogs to install debian/changelog in /usr/share/doc.
* Drop references to build-stamp, configure-stamp and the configure target
  ase these aren't used.
* Call dh_* with -i in binary-indep.
* Strip boilerplate from rules.
* Drop useless dirs from debian/dirs.
* Drop unused/bogus po-debconf from build-deps.
* Use debian/manpages instead of args to dh_installman for consistency.

[ update-motd 3.0 major redesign ]
NOTE: this release will be very short lived--this entire package
      should be obsolete when pam_motd assumes this functionality;
      see Launchpad #399071
* update-motd
  - drop the daemon design, as this was heavily objectionable
  - drop the cronjob design (actually, this was dropped in 2.0)
  - instead, make update-motd a script sourced in /etc/profile.d,
    such that it is *only* run on interactive login, and cpu cycles
    are not wasted otherwise
* update-motd.sh: script installed in /etc/profile.d
* update-motd.1: updated accordingly
* debian/control: updated description, drop python dependency
* debian/dirs, debian/install: only installing in /usr/bin and
* debian/init, debian/iwatch.xml: dropped entirely (also fixes LP: #398646)
* debian/postinst: purge unneeded /etc files
* debian/release-build.sh, debian/release.sh: bump major version to '3'
* debian/rules: drop init script installation, link /usr/bin/update-motd
  into /etc/profile.d

[ update-motd 2.0 major redesign ]
* update-motd:
  - rewrite update-motd as a python daemon, rather than a series of
    difficult-to-manage cronjobs
  - improve locking, LP: #340761
* update-motd: manpage updated for daemon re-design
* debian/update-motd.cron.d: dropped, no longer needed
* debian/rules: added a get-orig-source target, install init, don't
  install cron
* debian/control: updated description for the daemon, depend on python,
  drop cron dependency
* debian/postinst: delete the cron.d file in older installations
* ChangeLog: dropped; please use debian/changelog

update-motd: fix &2>1 typo, LP: #339774

12. By Dustin Kirkland  on 2009-03-05

update-motd: don't fail the entire script, if renice/ionice fail,
LP: #331921; ionice to 'idle' rather than 'best-effort'

11. By Dustin Kirkland  on 2009-01-05

debian/update-motd.cron.d: Fix broken crontab entries, LP: #312809
