a60d305... by Colin Watson on 2008-03-11

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.20 to ubuntu/hardy

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: fa63567b4f6b4dcbb13c1f80dde4172004d4a805

fa63567... by Joey Hess <email address hidden> on 2008-01-30

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.19 to ubuntu/hardy

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 9dc8790267090d24c2829862ffcfc77c58b05ea1

New changelog entries:
  * Add a hack to the teletype frontend to allow typing "q" at a "[More]"
    prompt and break out of the 'pager'. Useful when ucf's diff turns out
    to be many many pages in length. There's no UI indication that "q" works
    here, but it's the same as in other pagers like less.
  * Add (experimental, nonstandard) implementation of the X_LOADTEMPLATEFILE
    protocol command. Should be compatible with cdebconf's. Closes: #427091

9dc8790... by Colin Watson on 2008-01-08

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.18 to ubuntu/hardy

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 1183d22bc0234b2e0bb0b42d95744322d5d1f781

New changelog entries:
  [ Søren Hansen ]
  * debconf-apt-progress sometimes gets captured by buggy daemons, causing
    tasksel to hang because $debconf_command_eof never becomes true.
    STATUS_READ should be the last fd to close, so checking $status_eof is
    sufficient (LP: #141601).
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * debconf(1): Document that this command is rarely used. Closes: #457598
  * Add missing newlines to some error messages. Closes: #457609

1183d22... by Joey Hess <email address hidden> on 2007-11-12

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.17 to ubuntu/hardy

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 1dff3359bbb437dcbb3efd47d97d26fba1528359

New changelog entries:
  * Partial support for cancelable progress bars. While the dialog frontend
    cannot support them due to limitations in whiptail(1) and dialog(1),
    and I haven't implemented support in frontends like gnome or kde,
    the confmodule does now check to see if the frontend's progress bar
    methods return nonzero, and will pass that nonzero status along
    to the caller.
  * Implemented support for cancelable progress bars in the passthrough
  * debconf-apt-progress: Check for the progress bar being canceled, and if
    this happens, try to kill the apt process. Users of debconf-apt-progress
    that want a cancelable progress bar can thus just set the progresscancel
    capb before calling it and everything should work. Of course, this should
    only be done when the apt operation being run is one that can be cleanly
  * debconf-apt-progress: Notice if the child exited abnormally, and exit
  * Avoid setting a default title of "Configuring " when starting up the
    frontend if no package name could be determined.
  * Fix the passthrough frontend to not clear the capb on startup.
  * debconf-apt-progress: Add --dlwaypoint option.

1dff335... by Joey Hess <email address hidden> on 2007-10-26

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.16 to ubuntu/hardy

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: e133448f41723553b4c8010890c6d1937e799a46

New changelog entries:
  * Drop python 2.3. Closes: #447864
  * debconf-apt-progress: Add --no-progress option intended to be used
    by apt-install in d-i.

e133448... by Joey Hess <email address hidden> on 2007-10-20

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.15 to ubuntu/hardy

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 73674c59a6897ae00bd4bd8457ef1d03919f03ab

New changelog entries:
  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Add manual page description for debconf-set-selections. Closes: #435954
  * Ignore AttributeError in the Python DebconfCommunicator destructor, so
    that you don't get a confusing exception message if you give the wrong
    number of arguments to the constructor.
  * Don't use dh_python's postinst fragment (and copy its prerm fragment by
    hand). debconf is too important to fail because some random python
    module wouldn't compile. Closes: #225384, #293820
  [ Debconf Translations ]
  * Nepali updated. Closes: #435388
  [ Programs Translations ]
  * Nepali added. Closes: #435389
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Applied Davor Ocelic's patch adding a keybykey option to the LDAP
    DbDriver. Closes: #440857
    (Note that it currently has some minor uninitialised value warnings.)
  * TERM isn't set if run from synaptic, avoid uninitialised value in Readline
    frontend. Closes: #307568

73674c5... by Colin Watson on 2007-07-25

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.14 to ubuntu/gutsy

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: f9417c3a712adfc24b45bef25eacc1d5f07b13ed

New changelog entries:
  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Retry flock() on EINTR. Failing that, print the errno if flock() fails
    so that we have a better chance of working out why.
  * Install Python confmodule for python2.5 as well.
  * Add confmodule bindings for the DATA command.
  * Somebody looking at confmodule(3) probably actually wants
    debconf-devel(7). Add a reference in SEE ALSO.
  * Make sure that apt status commands and debconf protocol commands under
    debconf-apt-progress are properly interleaved. Closes: #425397
  [ Debconf Translations ]
  * Marathi added. Closes: #416805
  * Basque updated. Closes: #418897
  [ Programs Translations ]
  * Marathi added. Closes: #416805
  * Punjabi added. Closes: #427327
  * Basque updated. Closes: #418902
  * Esperanto added. Closes: #428275
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Increase selectspacer to 13 for dialog. May be needed due to changes in
    new versions of dialog.
  * Update url to web site in README.
  [ Trent Buck ]
  * Fix bash_completion syntax. Closes: #425676
  [ Man pages translations ]
    - French updated
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Fix kde frontend to "show" noninteractive elements so they can handle
    setting their values appropriately. Closes: #413509 (except possibly for
    the strange and unreproducible bits)
  * Avoid initialising kde until the first question is found that needs to be
    displayed using it. The Qt module could fail in some ugly ways during
    destruction if kde stuff was initialised but never used. (See #413509)
  [ Debconf Translations ]
    - Updated Esperanto. Closes: #404588
    - Updated Slovenian. Closes: #405581
    - Added Malayalam. Closes: #405910
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Bubulle requested I include a copy of debconf.pot in the source, rather
    than cleaning it, so here it is. Note that it's not included in svn, to
    avoid churn.
  [ Christian Perrier ]
  * Fix typos in debconf-devel(7) and debconf(7). Closes: #410168, #410169
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * po/Makefile: Smarter detection of no-op changes to po files.
  [ Programs Translations ]
    - Updated Dutch. Closes: #391311
    - Updated Portuguese. Closes: #392703
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Add need_tty field to frontend objects. dpkg-preconfigure can test
    this if it fails to reopen /dev/tty, and avoid dying if the frontend
    doesn't care about the tty, as happens in g-i when preconfiguring using
    the passthrough frontend. Closes: #401876
