Recent revisions

16. By Michael Vogt

* debian/postinst:
  - when upgrading, ensure the index is fully rebuild (in the
    background) to ensure that we get updated information in
    /var/lib/apt-xapian-index/{index.values} and that the index
    fully utilizes the new plugins (LP: #646018)

15. By Colin Watson

[ Enrico Zini ]
* Fixed tests on Ubuntu (Thanks Michael Vogt for the patch)
* Added cataloged-times plugin by Michael Vogt
* Handle multiple invocations of indexer via dbus
* Described axi-cache in the package description

[ Colin Watson ]
* Fix more crashes when the Dir::Cache::pkgcache file doesn't exist, along
  the same lines as Martin Pitt's change in 0.38 (LP: #267330).
* Use the new MSetItem attribute API, introduced in Xapian 1.0.0, rather
  than the sequence API which was removed in 1.1.0 (closes: #595916).
* Create the XDG cache directory with appropriate permissions if it
  doesn't exist.
* Set better NAME sections in manual pages.

14. By Michael Vogt

* debian/patches/0001-add-cataloged-times-plugin.patch,
  - add cataloged_time plugin that allows us to show "whats new"
* debian/patches/fix-tests:
  - fix test to use "libept-dev" instead of "debtags" because
    debtags is in universe
* debian/rules:
  - add quilt as a build-dependency

13. By Enrico Zini <email address hidden>

[ Martin Pitt ]
* plugins/apttags.py, AptTags.info(): If the Dir::Cache::pkgcache file does
  not exist (such as in our test suite, or simply if the system disables
  it), do not crash but return timestamp == 0, as per documentation.
  (LP: #267330)
* plugins/descriptions.py, indexDeb822(): Fix KeyError on "Description" when
  running in a non-English locale. Instead, look for a translated key and
  index that one.
* axi/indexer.py, setupIndexing(): Round timestamps when comparing them.
  This fixes the test suite failing on almost-but-not-quite-identical
* debian/rules: Run the test suite during build. Add the necessary python
  libs (-debian, -xapian, -apt, and -nose) as build dependencies.

12. By Enrico Zini <email address hidden>

Move #DEBHELPER# at the beginning of postinst, otherwise
update-python-modules -p doesn't seem to always work. Closes: #581811

11. By Michael Vogt

do not require a password for a simple update-apt-xapian-index

10. By Michael Vogt

export update-apt-xapian-index as dbus service for integration with
tools like software-center or packagekit (part of the
software-center-non-applications spec)

9. By Enrico Zini <email address hidden>

Upgrade to the new python-apt API. Thanks Julian Andres Klode for the
patch. Closes: #572052
