   * Policy 4.1.3 (no changes)
   * Debhelper 11, prompted by lintian…
   * Update VCS-* to new repository caused by Alioth deprecation


cvs (2:1.12.13+real-25) unstable; urgency=low

cvs (2:1.12.13+real-24) unstable; urgency=high

   * Update from MirBSD
     - fix for CVE-2017-12836 (Closes: #871810)
     - more robust $CVSROOT parsing
   * Policy 4.0.1
     - add nodoc build option
       ‣ I’m unclear on how this mixes with build profiles and/or
         Build-Depends exclusion; should I exclude ghostscript,
         groff, texinfo, texlive-* with <!nodocs> now, or are
         DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nodoc and the profile independent of
         each other? Info and patches welcome.

   * Update lintian overrides

   * Remove testsuite logfiles on clean properly
   * With most environment variables, handle them being defined but
     empty as undefined, not enabled (fixes the testsuite creating
