38. By Mike Hommey <email address hidden> on 2010-06-29

* debian/rules:
  - Use a variable to express which sub-targets to invoke for
  - Refactor configure-% and build-% rules.
  - Avoid possible renaming of _d.so files to _d_d.so files in the
    install-python%-dbg rules.
* debian/control, debian/control.udeb, debian/libxml2-udeb.install,
  debian/rules: Add an udeb package when building for Ubuntu.

37. By Loïc Minier on 2010-05-30

* Shuffle old Debian changelog entries around to match the Debian layout and
  reduce the diff.
* Drop /usr/share/doc/python-libxml2-dbg -> python-libxml2 symlink which was
  added to optimize disk space, the -dbg package is huge anyway. Add a
  preinst snippet to deal with upgrades.
* Merge with Debian.
  - Keep the new Debian build-deps "libreadline-dev | libreadline5-dev"
    since this should work fine with Ubuntu buildds reinstalling everything
    on each build.
  - Drop duplicate -Wall and -g from -dbg CFLAGS.
  - Drop addition of -Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions to LDFLAGS since LDFLAGS
    aren't overriden in the Debian rules anymore.
  - Don't set PYTHON_VERSION and PYTHON_SITE_PACKAGES during python$*-dbg
    builds since these should be correct already.
  - Drop explicit zlib1g-dev dep, .pc only mentions zlib in Libs.private and
    the .la file isn't shipped anymore, so there should be no mention of -lz
    requiring this anymore.
  - Rework creation of -dbg package (python$*-dbg) for the new dh 7 rules;
    install to debian/tmp-dbg.
  - Remaining changes:
    + Add python-libxml2-dbg package built with python$*-dbg and these
      CFLAGS: -Wall -Wextra -g -O0 -fno-strict-aliasing -pedantic.
    + Add libxml2-udeb package.
    + Fix debian/python-libxml2.install to cope with builds which don't have
      any site-packages based python versions.
    + rm -rf build-python$* in configure-python% to fix FTBFS.
* Fix dependency of python-libxml2-dbg on python-libxml2 to use
  ${binary:Version}, not ${source:Version}.
* Add ${misc:Depends} to python-libxml2-dbg.

36. By Scott Kitterman on 2009-12-15

* Merge from debian testing, remaining changes:
  - Create -udeb and python -dbg packages
  - Link using -Bsymbolic-functions
  - Add missing zlib1g-dev to -dev
  - Fix site-/dist-packages
  - Build-depend on libreadline6-dev instead of libreadline5-dev.
