Changelog parent: 986585820e54a68b3874aac8bb3cd53642372237

9865858... by Andreas Metzler <email address hidden> on 2005-12-03

Import patches-unapplied version 4.2.26-2 to ubuntu/dapper

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: 5a706a9d2ceba958d3ad3428ac0724943807527f

New changelog entries:
  * [xargs] Use true instead of echo in testsuite, hopefully fixing FTBFS on
    alpha, amd64 and ia64. (Closes: #340664)
  * [xargs] Limit number of arguments to (arg_max / sizeof(void*)) - 2 instead
    of ...-1, hopefully fixing FTBFS on hppa.
  * [updatedb] Add binfmt_misc, tmpfs, usbfs to PRUNEFS (Closes: #229551)
  * mimick override-file and put find in section utils instead of base.
  * debian/README.debian: on_ac_power works for ACPI, too. (Closes: #306963)
  * Add a NEWS.Debian file, explaining the withdrawal of "find -perm +MODE"
    and introduction of "find -perm /MODE". (Closes: #329358)
  * New upstream version 4.2.26.
    - find manpage updated to document -perm /... instead of -perm +...
      (Closes: #330245)
    - Typos in xargs.1 and find.1 fixed. (Thanks, A. Costa)
      (Closes: #327909, #327910)
    - If the input to xargs is a large number of very short options (for
      example, one character each), earlier versions of xargs would fail
      with 'Argument list too long'. This is because Linux's execve
      implementation requires that the sum of the sizes of all argument
      string pointers not exceed 128K (the actual limit is
      ARG_MAX - sizeof (void*)). Hopefully (Closes: #313028).
  * new upstream version 4.2.25. (bugfix and improved testsuite)
  * add findutils-4.2.25-14390.dpatch, fixing a testsuite failure concerning
    find -depth ... -quit
  * Update debian/copyright.
  * standards-version 3.6.2, no changes required.
  * New upstream version 4.2.24:
    - "-printf %Y %y"n works correctly again (Closes: #320378).
    - new option -regextype to finds for selecting more useful regex-variants
      than the default GNU Emacs.
    - find -exec rm -i {} \; works again. (Closes: #317019)
    - xargs exits with correct exit status 123 if invoked command returned
      non-zero returncode. (Closes: #319085)
    - xargs -I option documented in manpage. (Closes: #317086)
    - fixes to find.1 manpage (Closes: #318417)

      (Closes: #313081)
    - better documentation for %k and %d printf directives. (Closes: #208307)
    - find filters out non-printable characters (which could mess up the
      terminal) when printing the output to a console. (Closes: #311384)
    - Typo fixes. (Closes: #301934, #312760, #312761) (Thanks, A Costa.)

    - find supports -exec ... {} +.
    - locate support for FreeBSD options (Sclms, m and s are ignored, but
      undocumented, I've already opened upstream report #11730 on that.)
      (Closes: #102914)
    - find built with --enable-d_type-optimisation, for using
      readdir/getdents. (Closes: #202512)

    maintainer. Thanks. Add him to Uploaders.
  * New upstream version

    - includes 10_updatedb-findopts patch.
    - does not print warning about listing options after non-options unless
      connected to a tty.
    - xargs now uses 128Kb instead of 20Kb of command line by default, as
      ARG_MAX is 131072 on linux this Closes: #261598.
  * New upstream version (pre-4.2.4, CVS 2004-11-06).
    - Closes: #176201: findutils: xargs enviroment size limited to 20k
    - Closes: #254676: xargs: environment is too large for exec
    - Closes: #219855: -printf: accepts C octal escapes, contrary to the
    - Closes: #246040: findutils: find -printf %H segfaults
    - Closes: #185202: findutils: extra ")" not caught

    - includes supplied patch for GNU/FreeBSD. (Closes: #192330)
    - updatedb invokes "cd /" before running commands as unprivileged user.
      (Closes: #262476)
    - 'xargs -n 1 -i' works. (Closes: #31858). Please note that it is no bug
      that -i changes xargs to pass a whole line of input as a single argument
      instead of splitting on any blank characters as without -i. - Other
      implementations behave the same and the -I XSI extension documented in
      SUSv3/POSIX works like this, too.
   * Removed unnecessary patches: 10_missing_includes 20_missing_newlines
     30_locate_nologinsh 35_updatedb-location 36_savannah-8623 40_direntry

  * standards-version 3.6.1 (no changes required).

  * Add watch file provided Stefano Fabri. (Closes: #248758)
  * locate crashed on invalid db-files. Fix pulled from CVS. (Closes: #256811)
