Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.32 to debian/squeeze

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 6d505dd71c2c3f5157a017fd395e0bcb14c3dade

New changelog entries:
  * File: Avoid using filetest to test if database can be written to, as that
    is not in perl-base. Instead, try to open database for read+write,
    and if it fails, open readonly without locking. Closes: #577632
  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Squash chomp warning in Debconf::FrontEnd::Teletype on EOF or error.
  * Test database writability more carefully to avoid breaking use of
    debconf under fakeroot. Closes: #577299
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * Fix uninitialized value warning if debconf -f is not followed by
    another parameter. Closes: #575870
  [ Programs translation updates ]
  * Simplified Chinese (soyi).

New changelog entries:
  * Don't open file databases read-write if the database is read-only, or if
    the file isn't writable (e.g. running debconf as non-root). Closes:

cd8936b... by Joey Hess <email address hidden> on 2009-10-20

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.28 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: fb50ea07118d1268453d3a3947135c4a827a6071

New changelog entries:
  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Put debconf-i18n in Section: localization, to match overrides.
  * Remove unused subcommand parameter from
  * Override Lintian warning about debconf's postrm not calling db_purge;
    debconf itself is a special case here.
  * Declare "Media change" string as needing translation. (apt gives us
    translated messages for substitution into the extended description here,
    but not for the short description.)
  * Remove unused 'use I18N::Langinfo' from Debconf::Element::Gnome
    (LP: #387112).
  * Upgrade to debhelper v7. In the process, convert to python-central with
    DH_PYCENTRAL=nomove (since we need our modules to be usable even when
    debconf is unconfigured; at the moment, the effect of this use of
    python-central is only to add a Python-Versions control field).
  [ Christian Perrier ]
  * Add translation of "-a" in "man dpkg-reconfigure".
    Patch by Simon Paillard.
  * Suggest reporting bugs related to French translations in the French
    l10n mailing list. Patch by Simon Paillard.
  * French debconf translation update
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * document --terse in relevant man pages and show --no-reload in
    dpkg-reconfigure usage. Closes: #548994
  * German man page addendum fixed. Closes: #546789
  * Dropped the KDE frontend. libqt-perl is uninstallable, and
    work on the new qt4 perl bindings and a new KDE frontend based on
    them is not ready. If the KDE frontend is specified, debconf will
    now attempt to fall back to the Gnome frontend, or failing that,
    to dialog. Closes: #522580
  * Enable set -e in debconf-utils postinst.
  [ Programs translation updates ]

fb50ea0... by Colin Watson on 2009-07-03

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.27 to debian/squeeze

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 5881d0d99b33f3d26e0c64f7cb59936fda1b4db7

New changelog entries:
  * Fix Plural-Forms header in Tagalog translation.
  * debconf-apt-progress: If we didn't start the debconf frontend ourselves,
    then it's unlikely that the passthrough child will be able to start
    debconf normally, so tell it to use a pipe database in that case and
    rely on passthrough to save answers (LP: #337306).
  * debconf-apt-progress: DEBIAN_HAS_FRONTEND is always set here at some
    point, even if only on the second run after starting debconf, so we need
    to invert our handling of the check for whether we started the debconf
    frontend ourselves (LP: #347648).
  * Minor GET optimisation: fetch the question value only once rather than
  * debconf-apt-progress: If we get cancelled very early on before managing
    to start the process we're controlling, make sure that we don't carry on
    and start it anyway, and that we still return 30.
  * debconf-apt-progress: Handle cancellation right at the end. We don't
    have a process to kill at this point, but we should at least return the
    correct exit code.
  [ Manpages translations ]
  * Completed german man page translation. Closes: #518396
  * Completed French man page translation. Closes: #520787
  [ Debconf translations ]
  * Added Asturian. Closes: #518977
  * Added Bengali
  [ Programs translations ]
  * Added Asturian. Closes: #518977
  * Added Bengali

5881d0d... by Colin Watson on 2009-03-03

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.26 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 1708228bb86f68bc55c2ee64487c9e6aca8d41ee

New changelog entries:
  * Use 'key not in dict' rather than 'not dict.has_key(key)' in debconf.py;
    dict.has_key is deprecated in Python 2.6.
  * debconf-apt-progress: Don't send STOP if we didn't start the debconf
    frontend ourselves; in that case the application calling us should
    arrange to stop itself.
  * debconf.py: Use subprocess rather than popen2 if it's available. popen2
    is deprecated in Python 2.6.

1708228... by Colin Watson on 2009-02-19

Import patches-unapplied version 1.5.25 to debian/sid

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 0e0a1927fd916ff33b9e0c0bb23ef2c1c9a71f44

New changelog entries:
  [ Joey Hess ]
  * debconf-devel(7): Fix state machine example to handle case where user
    backs out of first question.
  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Support overriding frontend's package name determination (used to set
    the owner) using the DEBCONF_PACKAGE environment variable. Useful for
    applications driving debconf other than by way of package installation.
  * Refer to po-debconf(7) rather than its README (thanks, James R. Van
    Zandt). Closes: #505392
  * Refer to debconf-show(1) from dpkg-reconfigure(8) for those who just
    want to see the current configuration. Closes: #506070
  * Only use -C fields when explicitly disabling internationalisation within
    debconf (or when DEBCONF_C_VALUES=true), not merely when in the C
    locale. Based on a patch by Frans Pop, for which thanks! Closes: #476873
  * Force fallback to the default template if we encounter 'en' in the
    locale list and no language-specific template for English was
    found,since English text is usually found in a plain field rather than
    something like Choices-en.UTF-8. This allows you to override other
    locale variables for a different language with LANGUAGE=en. Thanks again
    to Frans Pop. Closes: #496631
  [ Manpages translations ]
  * Completed german man page translation.
  [ Debconf translations ]
  * Corrections in german translation with apologies for
    forgetting this bug report. Closes: #462302
