Changelog emacs25 (25.2+1-6)


emacs25 (25.2+1-6) unstable; urgency=high

   * Block remote code execution via enriched text.  Add
     0012-A-remote-execution-exploit-via-enriched-text-has-bee.patch to
     fix the problem.  Thanks to David Bremner for the alert and
     Salvatore Bonaccorso for reporting the problem to Debian.
     (Closes: 875447)

emacs25 (25.2+1-5) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Build with -O0 on arm64 to avoid FTBS.  Without this the build
     segfaults in marker.c when trying to construct c-by.el.
     Thanks to Gianfranco Costamagna for reporting the bug and Barry
     Warsaw for suggesting the workaround. (Closes: 868165)

emacs25 (25.2+1-4) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Disable eieio-test-method-order-list-6.  Its behavior is
     unpredictable, and it was causing the armhf build to fail:
     Add 0011-Disable-eieio-test-method-order-list-6.patch to fix the
     problem.  Thanks to Glen Morris for pointing out the previous report.

emacs25 (25.2+1-3) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Actually run tests by default (fix DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS nocheck test)
     Fix the inverted logic.  Thanks to John Paul Adrian Glaubitz for
     reporting the problem.  (Closes: 869328)
   * Completely remove gconf support.  Build --without-gconf for the
     emacs25 flavor (as we already do for lucid and nox), since GConf
     has been deprecated for years.  Thanks to intrigeri for reporting
     the issue. (Closes: 869085)
   * Fix README.Debian news entry for
   * Fix memory alignment problem causing FTBS on m68k.  Thanks to John
     Paul Adrian Glaubitz for reporting the problem and providing an
     earlier fix. (Closes: 868868)
   * Don't downcase lookup paths in elisp-mode-tests.  This caused the
     tests to fail under sbuild when the test path contained uppercase
     characters.  Add
     0010-Don-t-downcase-real-xref-in-elisp-mode-tests.patch to fix the

emacs25 (25.2+1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

   * emacsXY-common: directly depend on install-info.  Since Emacs
     qualifies as an info reader (Debian Policy 12.2).  This should
     make sure the info index is correctly created/updated at install
     time.  Thanks to Francesco Potortì and NIIBE Yutaka for reporting
     the problem. (Closes: 850808, 863359)
   * Build all flavors from common build-src via VPATH.  Instead of
     building each flavor from scratch in a completely independent
     debian/build-FLAVOR directory, create debian/build-src and then
     configure each build-FLAVOR via VPATH.  Then the first flavor
     built will handle all of the common bootstrapping, and subsequent
     flavors will build much more quickly.
   * Migrate to debhelper 10.

emacs25 (25.2+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Merge upstream version 25.2.
   * Update debian/ for 25.2.

emacs25 (25.1+1-4) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Don't offer/use openssl s_client by default: "s_client is a debug
     tool, it does not set up a secure connection, it ignores all
     errors and just continues.  It also doesn't do checks it should be
     doing.  This is all documented behaviour." -- Kurt Roeckx
     Add 0009-openssl-s_client-is-no-longer-a-default-for-ssl-conn.patch to
     fix the problem.  Thanks to Kurt Roeckx for reporting the issue.
     (Closes: 766397)


emacs25 (25.1+1-3) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Configure with REL_ALLOC=no to fix crashes.  Thanks to Santiago
     Vila for reporting the problem, and Sean Whitton for helping test
     the fix. (Closes: 842728)
   * Disable xwidget (webkit) support.  Thanks to David Bremner for
     reporting the issue. (Closes: 843462)
   * Depend on liboss4-salsa-dev on hurd and kfreebsd.  Thanks to Aaron
     M. Ucko for reporting the problem and Svante Signell for providing
     the fix. (Closes: 840702)

emacs25 (25.1+1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Respect DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck.  Thanks to David Bremner for
     reporting the issue.
   * Don't dh_auto_clean, and run dh_clean first.  Since we don't build
     in the source tree, we shouldn't clean there either, and let
     dh_clean take care of its bits before we stomp around.
   * Install emacs.appdata.xml as emacs25.appdata.xml.
   * Drop emacs23 icons to avoid future path conflicts.  Thanks to
     Tatsuya Kinoshita for reporting the problem. (Closes: 841687)
   * Fix fix for package-test gpg-agent cleanup race.  Specify
     --no-autostart so that we don't start an agent if one wasn't
     already running when we're requesting shutdown, and delete the
     test dir with "rm -rf" to avoid being affected by vanishing
     sockets (sockets that gpg-agent may be deleting in parallel).
   * Add gnupg-agent build-dep for package-test.
   * Don't segfault if gcc expects -nopie instead of -no-pie.  Thanks
     to Lucas Nussbaum and Aaron M. Ucko for reporting the problem, and
     Sven Joachim for tracking down the upstream patch. (Closes:

emacs25 (25.1+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Stop mangling info files.
   * debian/rules: clean additional files for 25.1.
   * Don't copy missing-file.dfsg to THE-GNU-PROJECT.  THE-GNU-PROJECT
     is now compatible with the DFSG.  Remove missing-file.dfsg
     entirely since it it no longer being used.
   * Bump Debian alternatives priority to 28 for 25.1.
   * Remove ia64 CFLAGS "-O1" workaround.
   * Compute version in strip-nondeterminism fix.  Use $(runtime_ver)
     and $(flavor) instead of 24.5 and emacs24.
   * Fix dh_listpackages in strip-nondeterminism target.
   * Set libmagick build-dep to libmagick++-6.q16-dev.
   * debian/setup-stamp: remove redundant mkdir.
   * Don't default to ALSA support; explicitly request it.
   * Run tests in all three debian/ build trees.
   * Enable xwidget (webkit) support for emacs25.
   * Convert debian/copyright to 1.0; update for 25.1.  Explicitly
     mention the unusual debian/rules copyright, which will be
     addressed via #826347.
   * Add dbus-x11 and procps build-deps for tests.
   * Kill gpg agent in package-test.el to avoid a race.  Add
     0007-Kill-gpg-agent-in-package-test.el-to-avoid-a-race.patch to
     incorporate the fix.

emacs24 (24.5+1-7) unstable; urgency=medium

   * debian/control: make Source-Version source:Version.  Thanks to
     Guillem Jover for reporting the problem. (Closes: 833215)
   * Restore GTK+ toolbar icons.
     Add 0020-Emacs-should-show-GTK-icons-again.patch to include the relevant
     upstream code.  Thanks to Juerg Haefliger for reporting the problem and
     pointing out the relevant upstream commit. (Closes: 828000)
   * Fix malloc handling with newer gcc (>= 5.2).
     Add 0021-Emacs-should-work-with-gcc-5.2-and-newer.patch to incorporate
     the relevant upstream code.  Thanks to Aurelien Jarno for reporting the
     problem and backporting the fix.
   * Support glibc 2.24.
     Add 0022-Emacs-should-work-with-glibc-2.24-on-ppc64.patch to incorporate
     the relevant upstream code. Thanks to Aurelien Jarno for reporting the
     problem and backporting the fix. (Closes: 833727)

emacs24 (24.5+1-6) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Fix a ppc64el, bss-related build problem.
     Builds on ppc64el were failing like this:
       emacs: Program segment above .bss in
     Add these upstream patches to fix the problem:
     Thanks to Paul Eggert <> for help locating the set
     of patches, and Esa Peuha <> for reporting the
     problem. (Closes: 808347)


emacs24 (24.5+1-5) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Only test timestamp preservation for $(flavor)-el.  Only check
     el.gz timestamp preservation when $(flavor)-el is one of the
     packages being built (so the canary file will actually be there),
     but go ahead and fix up the timestamps across all packages.
     Thanks to David Matthew Mattli <> for reporting the
     problem. (Closes: 805904)

emacs24 (24.5+1-4) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Ensure elc timestamps are newer than el files.  Since
     strip-nodeterminism changes the *.el.gz file timestamps, restore
     the timestamps after it runs.  Otherwise, Emacs will think that
     corresponding .elc files are stale.  Thanks to Yuri D'Elia
     <> for reporting the problem.  (Closes: 803060)

emacs24 (24.5+1-3) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Split desktop file into term and non-term versions.  Thanks to
     Norbert Preining <> for reporting the
     problem. (Closes: 799935)
   * Add upstream StartupWMClass/Keywords to *.desktop.  Copy them from
     the upstream etc/emacs.desktop.
   * Suggest ncurses-term, needed by term mode.  Thanks to Jorge Morais
     for reporting the problem and for forwarding it
     to Debian. (Closes: 790402)
   * Remove redundant libtiff-dev dependency.
   * emacs-common: recommend emacs-el.  Without it, important bits of
     Emacs don't work (i.e. C-h f, etc.), and it's not likely to be a
     significant burden these days.

emacs24 (24.5+1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

   [ Martin Račák ]
   * emacsVER.desktop: don't use absolute path to icon. (Closes: 778884)
   [ Rob Browning ]
   * Remove .menu file as per TC resolution of #741573.
   * Update .desktop file and add terminal flavor.
   [ David Bremner ]
   * Explicity specify QUILT_PATCHES_PREFIX in rules.  The current use
     relies on the names of patches being prefixed with debian/patches,
     which doesn't seem to be completely reliable (e.g. it doesn't
     happen in a wheezy build environment).  The environment variable
     QUILT_PATCHES_PREFIX is documented to do this. (Closes: 775068)
   [ Rob Browning ]
   * Don't assume grep supports GREP_OPTIONS.
     Add 0008-Emacs-won-t-assume-grep-supports-GREP_OPTIONS.patch to
     incorporate the relevant upstream patch.  Thanks to Bob Proulx
     <> for reporting the problem, and Ben Finney
     <> for tracking down the fix. (Closes: 793741)
   * Don't hang during large yanks.
     Add 0009-Emacs-should-no-longer-hang-during-large-yanks.patch to
     incorporate the relevant upstream patch.  Thanks to Mike Crowe
     <> for reporting the problem and tracking down the
     fix. (Closes: 795909)

emacs24 (24.5+1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Merge upstream version 24.5 (shift from the bzr->git mirror to the
     new official upstream git repository for the source).
     Remove redundant patches:
   * Update debian/copyright* for 24.5.

emacs24 (24.4+1-5) unstable; urgency=medium

   * emacs24-common: conflict with obsolete gnus-bonus-el package.
     Thanks to Hilko Bengen for reporting the problem. (Closes: 767949)
   * Add "Breaks: apel (<< 10.8+0.20120427-4)" to emacs24-common to fix
     a byte-compilation problem with older versions of the package.
     Thanks to Łukasz Stelmach for the report and Sébastien Villemot
     for tracking down the correct version. (Closes: 775564)


emacs24 (24.4+1-4.1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Non-maintainer upload.
   * Cherry-pick 0009-lisp-startup.el-command-line.patch to fix handling
     nil elements in load-path (Closes: #768751)

   * Update emacsen-common dependency as per policy.

emacs24 (24.4+1-3) experimental; urgency=medium

   * Eliminate a race to create info/ during the build.  Add
     0008-A-race-to-create-info-has-been-eliminated.patch with the
     relevant changes.  Thanks to Paul Eggert <> for
     tracking down the problem and providing the fix.

emacs24 (24.4+1-2) experimental; urgency=medium

   * Adjust update_autogen and make-info-dir for DFSG removals.
     Change 0003-Remove-files-that-appear-to-be-incompatible-with-the.patch

emacs24 (24.4+1-1) experimental; urgency=medium

   * Merge upstream version 24.4.
     Remove (unneeded) src/macuvs.h and admin/unidata/IVD_Sequences.txt
     until we're sure about the license:
     Remove new GFDL files (moved to emacs24-common-non-dfsg):
     Remove redundant patches:
   * Update debian/copyright* for 24.4.  Update entry for man/faq.texi
     (now doc/mis/efaq.texi); add entries for doc/misc/efaq-w32.texi,
     lisp/obsolete/meese.el, msdos/sedadmin.inp, nt/inc/dirent.h, and
     all of the files in m4/ except gnulib-comp.m4.
   * Ignore src/macuvs.h and IVD_Sequences.txt for now.  Add
     0007-Don-t-try-to-build-src-macuvs.h-via-IVD_Sequences.tx.patch to
     avoid trying to build src/macuvs.h (via IVD_Sequences.txt) since
     we removed it for the time being, due to uncertainty over the
   * Build depend on libacl1-dev for new ACL support
   * Build depend on zlib1g-dev for new zlib support
   * Remove obsolete configure argument --with-crt-dir
   * Look for DOC, not DOC-$(runtime_ver) in debian/rules.  The DOC
     file is now just DOC.
   * Don't try to remove /usr/local in debian/rules.  It's not created
     during the build anymore.

emacs24 (24.3+1-5) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Fix patch-to-news: notice error; correct path
   * Fix a problem with UIM and the compose key.
     Incorporate the relevant upstream patches:

     tracking down the relevant patches. (Closes: 753534)
   * Make fill-region-as-paragraph respect the fill-column.
     Add 0019-fill-region-as-paragraph-should-better-respect-the-f.patch.

   * Describe emacs24/emacs24-lucid/emacs24-nox more clearly in
     debian/control.  Explain the differences more clearly, and mention
     the emacsclient related crash that emacs24-lucid may help avoid.
     Thanks to Jonathan Nieder <> for the report, and
     to him and Justin B Rye <> for suggesting
     improvements.  (Closes: 682288)

     Thanks to Jay Berkenbilt <> for the report.
     (Closes: 735999)


emacs24 (24.3+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Set CFLAGS, CPPFLAGS, and LDFLAGS solely via configure in debian/rules.
     Don't override the CFLAGS, CPPFLAGS, and LDFLAGS values chosen by the
     upstream configure script; instead, make any adjustments at configure
     time.  Our quashing of "-Wl,-znocombreloc" during the make invocation
     was causing i386 builds of emacs24-lucid to fail under X.
     Thanks to Łukasz Pankowski <> for the report, and Samuel
     Bronson <> for the patch. (Closes: 684788)
   * debian/rules: clean src/
     Thanks to Samuel Bronson <> for the patch.

     Thanks to Lucas Nussbaum <> for the report,
     Matt Kraai <> for the patch, and Dmitrijs Ledkovs
     <> for the 24.3+1-1.1 NMU. (Closes: 707488)
   * Specify --without-gsettings for emacsFLAVOR-nox and emacsFLAVOR-lucid.
     Thanks to Yuri D'Elia <> for the report.
     (Closes: 687299, 687303)
   * Fix hang at startup on kFreeBSD.
     Add debian/patches/0008-Emacs-should-no-longer-hang-at-startup-on-kFreeBSD.patch
     and debian/patches/0009-Emacs-should-no-longer-hang-at-startup-on-kFreeBSD.patch
     to incorporate the two relevant upstream patches.
     Thanks to Christoph Egger <> for the report.
     (Closes: 712974)

emacs24 (24.3+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Upgrade to upstream version 24.3 and update debian/copyright,
     debian/patches, debian/rules, etc.
   * Remove patches that appear to have been incorporated upstream:
   * 0001-Prefer-usr-share-info-emacs-24-over-usr-share-info.patch:
     remove lisp/site-init.el in favor of a modification to
     lisp/info.el to directly prepend /usr/share/info/emacs-%d to
     Info-default-directory-list (setting it directly in site-lisp.el
     no longer worked, and was more complicated).
   * Automatically compute upstream version in debian/rules.
   * Mention the etc/publicsuffix.txt license in debian/copyright.

emacs24 (24.2+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Switch emacs24 from GTK+ 2 to GTK+ 3. (Closes: #679931)

emacs24 (24.2+1-1) unstable; urgency=high

   * Upgrade to upstream version 24.2 and update debian/patches.
   * Remove patches that have been incorporated upstream:
   * Stop producing the emacs binary metapackage.
     Move the emacs binary metapackage to its own source package
     (emacs-defaults, cf. gcc-defaults).  This will prevent emacs23 and
     emacs24 from producing the same binary package.
   * Don't eval code when enable-local-variables is :safe.  Previously,
     Emacs might eval forms in file-local variable sections even when
     the Emacs user option `enable-local-variables' was set to :safe
     (CVE-2012-3479).  Emacs 24.2 fixes the problem.  Thanks to Henri
     Salo <> for the report.  (Closes: #684695)

emacs24 (24.1+1-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add 0011-Don-t-use-IN_FLOAT-when-calling-fabs-since-it-may-cl.patch.
     Fix FTBS on i386 by adding an upstream patch to skip fabs() errno
     checking.  Since fabs() has no error conditions, it doesn't guarantee
     that it won't clobber errno.

emacs24 (24.1+1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Restrict libselinux1-dev build dependency to [linux-any].
     Thanks to James McCoy <> for the report.
     (Closes: #679679)

emacs24 (24.1+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Upgrade to upstream version 24.1.
   * Fix Prefer-usr-share-info-emacs-23-over-usr-share-info.patch for emacs24.
   * Update Debian-specific documentation in patches/ for emacs24.
     Adjust 0002-Run-debian-startup-and-set-debian-emacs-flavor.patch
     header to refer to 'emacs24.  Refer to emacs24-common in /etc/NEWS
     in 0004-Adjust-documentation-references-for-Debian.patch.
   * Update debian/control* and debian/copyright for emacs24.
   * Update debian/.gitignore for emacs24.

   * Clean up debian/rules, and update it for emacs24.
   * Allow DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS parallel builds again.
   * Change emacs package to stick with emacs23 for now.
   * Fix emacsVER.lintian-overrides to refer to the correct icon paths.
   * Fix package descriptions to satisfy lintian.
   * Don't compile with -DDEBIAN anymore (no longer needed).
   * Don't switch to -O1 for m68k and ia64; hopefully unnecessary now.
   * Verify that movemail was compiled against liblockfile.
   * Don't copy .git to build trees.
   * Uncompress manpages before trying to give them versioned names.

emacs23 (23.4+1-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add 0017-Initialize-xgselect-in-function-xg_select-when-gfds_.patch.
     Patch xgselect.c to prevent hang when using newer versions of
     GLib.  Thanks to Vincent Lefevre <> and Sven
     Arvidsson <> for the initial reports, and Karel Klíč
     <> for the patch. (Closes: #666691)

     Incorporate upstream fix to prevent Emacs from crashing while
     decoding input with DOS EOLs.
   * Add 0016-quail-indian.el-indian-tlg-base-table-Fix-typo-dev-t.patch.
     Rename indian-dev-base-table to indian-tlg-base-table to correct a
     typo in quail/indian.el.

emacs23 (23.4+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Upgrade to upstream version 23.4.  Emacs 23.4 includes grammars

     Add debian/rules info_subdir variable.
     Modify desktop and menu files version.  This approach should work for
     normal versions, "Emacs 21.4a (X11)", and for snapshots, "Emacs

     Overhaul debian/rules to build all of the install trees at once and
     then call the dh_* programs generically rather than calling them once
     per package. [rlb]

     must be generated manually via "debian/rules autofiles-sync".
     The earlier approach was broken because dpatch files that
     autofiles.diff depended on could end up later in the Debian diff (and
     hence have newer timestamps).  This would cause an unexpected run of
     aclocal, etc.  and break the buildds.  If we ever want to re-automate

   * Use -O1 rather than -O2 on m68k.  Fixes a build failure (looks like a
     broken byte compiler) with newer versions of gcc.  (closes: #207580)

emacs21 (21.3+1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * repackage without .elc files since we regenerate all of them anyway.
     This will save space, and will also allow us to use dpatch in a
     straightforward way.
   * modify debian/rules computation of version numbers to handle
     (i.e. ignore) the +1 in 21.3+1.
   * rework to use dpatch and to patch/unpatch the debian source in-place
     rather than using a debian/build-src copy of the whole source tree.
   * incorporated patch (500-detect-coding-iso2022.dpatch) to fix raw-text
     coding problem.  Thanks to Kenichi Handa <>.

     suggestion from Matt Kraai <>. (closes: #166139)
   * finish breaking up most of the debian/patch/* files.
   * set up automatic generation for autofiles.diff which contains all the
     diffs to automatically generated files and is applied after all of the
     debian/patch/*.diff files.
   * add an apply-patches-upto command so it's easier to create partially
     patched trees for editing.


emacs21 (21.2-5) unstable; urgency=low

   * fix bug in rules and binary-pkg generation. (closes: #164770)

     changes as patches against the upstream source.  Don't edit the main
     tree anymore.

   * fixed typo in NEWS. (closes: #116814)

emacs21 (21.1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New emacs21 packages.  Many changes -- reviewed all Debian files.

emacs20 (20.7-10) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Add arch header for mipsel and fix and
     configure. (closes: #103959)

emacs20 (20.7-9) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added more Build-Depends. (closes: #101832)
   * Disable ralloc on Hurd.  Thanks to Robert Bihlmeyer
     <>. (closes: #101926)

emacs20 (20.7-8) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added ia64 patches from Bdale Garbee <> for ia64.h.
     (closes: #90518)
   * Added Build-Depends on mailx for now (though this is wrong for the
     long run -- I need to fix my fakemail handling).
     (closes: #95903, #96761)
   * Fix fakeroot sgid problem (move movemail chmod +s in debian/rules).

     emacs21, we're going to move back to using whatever they choose.
     (closes: #81682)

emacs20 (20.7-7) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fixed reftex-info problem. (closes: #44837).
   * Fix install-strip target in  Thanks to
     Kalle Olavi Niemitalo <>.  (closes: #51348)

emacs20 (20.7-6) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fix bad .so in ctags manpage (closes: #88231, #45317, #65017, #74570)

emacs20 (20.7-5) unstable; urgency=low

   * add detection of CONF_MAIL_PROGRAM_NAME.
   * lib-src/fakemail.c: use CONF_MAIL_PROGRAM_NAME when appropriate
     (closes: #72103) -- need to forward upstream.
   * Add "modified by Debian" clause to (emacs-version) at RMS's request.
   * Start Debian modifications section in copyright file as per policy.
   * Add build fixes for hurd (closes: #78461).  Changes suggested by  Thanks.
   * Switch from Debian sendmail.el hack to Francesco's suggestion of
     setting mail-from-style to 'system-default by default at startup
     (closes: #35128).  This allows the user to override when desired in
     the normal way.  This should be discussed with the upstream
     maintainers.  They may be amenable to making this the default on
     Debian systems.
   * add dependency on dpkg (>= 1.9.0) for new install-info.
   * info pages should finally work right (or at least closer to right).
     They're now installed in /usr/share/info/emacs-20/ under their normal
     names, and install-info can add the appropriate (emacs-20/emacs),
     etc. entries to /usr/share/info/dir.  This hopefully closes a bunch of
     old bugs.
     (closes: #64994, #64512, #64025, #62155, #59332, #51163, #40443)

     (closes: #73007)
   * /usr/share/info/dir.gz should be gone.
     (closes: #75594, #68551, #65012)


emacs20 (20.7-4) unstable frozen; urgency=low

   * Upload to unstable and frozen since this fixes outstanding grave

emacs20 (20.7-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Change code to rebuild all the install tree .elc files at build
     time.  This should fix the grave problems with gnus trashing mail at
     the expense of more CPU at build time.

emacs20 (20.7-2) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Revert to setting debian-emacs-flavor in startup.el as per recent
     flip-flop in debian-emacs-policy :<  This was a tiny source change,
     and definitely has to go into frozen - too much breaks otherwise.

emacs20 (20.7-1) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream bug-fix version.  Fixes security bugs, among others.
   * Removed some now redundant Debian patches.

emacs20 (20.6-3) unstable frozen; urgency=medium

   * Temp fix for alpha corruption problem in cm/src.h
     src/termcap.c, src/terminfo.c, and src/sysdep.c (forwarded bug 63993).

emacs20 (20.6-2) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Make sure info files get registered after /usr/share migration.

emacs20 (20.6-1) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Let emacsen-common handle setting debian-emacs-flavor and modify
     "Depends:" accordingly.
   * Maintainer release of 20.6 - fixes same issues as 20.6-0.1, so it
     should go into frozen.
   * Move info files to /usr/share/info.
   * Make sure .elc files for .el files we've modified are always rebuilt.
   * Add new unexelf.c from Gerd Moellmann <>.  Without this,
     emacs20 will not build on either frozen or unstable x86 machines.

emacs20 (20.6-0.1) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Non-maintainer release.
   * New upstream bug fix release (closes:#60931).
   * ARM support merged upstream.
   * Add security patches from RUS-CERT posting on BugTraq.
   * postinst: Use 2775 as directory permissions in /usr/local (closes:#59919)


emacs20 (20.5a-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Check in a bogus modification to all the .el files that we modified
     before 20.5a so that new .elc files with our changes will be generated
     when we build.  This must be done every time an upstream change is
     merged in.

emacs20 (20.5a-1) unstable; urgency=high

   * Upstream version number is just fine (20.5a is newer than 20.5).
     Switch to use it.

emacs20 (20.4.pre20.5a-1) unstable; urgency=high

   * New upstream version, including some Y2K fixes.
   * Use weird version to avoid epochs.  This is upstream 20.5a.

emacs20 (20.4-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fix mistake in this file.  Fix bug number in architecture
     dependency "closes" in last revision.
   * Powerpc patch from Susumu OSAWA <>.
     (Should close bug 48997, but marked forwarded instead until patch is
     resolved upstream.)
   * Jargon problems apparently fixed. (closes: #31103 #37030)
   * Gnus printing problems apparently fixed (closes: #20760)
   * Fix manpage to refer to more accurate Debian file locations.
     (closes: #35267)
   * cperl-mode problem apparently fixed. (closes: #46739)
   * Fix build stripping problem (use INSTALL_STRIP=-s rather than
     INSTALL_PROGRAM="install -s").

emacs20 (20.4-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Modify mail-spool-directory/movemail patch in preparation for upstream
   * Fix architecture dependency. (closes: #48997)

emacs20 (20.4-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version.
   * I decided to go ahead and get this out without the major overhaul
     that's coming, but I'm going to be working more tightly the core
     upstream developers from now on, so there will be some more
     substantial changes soon, including getting rid of more Debianisms and
     double checking all our current patches.
   * Fix movemail liblockfile detection to be non-Debian specific
     (currently working out the appropriate upstream patch (see etc/NEWS)).
   * Fix emacs to support a --with-mail-spool-directory configure option and to
     automagically detect the right answer most of the time without it
     (currently working out the appropriate upstream patch (see etc/NEWS)).
   * Add the lisp-level variable mail-spool-directory which always contains
     the location of the mail spool, and hack movemail, nnmail, rmail, and
     friends to use it (currently working out the appropriate upstream
     patch (see etc/NEWS)) .
   * hexl-mode bug fixed upstream. (closes: #21762)

emacs20 (20.3-11) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fix liblockfile version skew. (closes: #43803 #45123)

emacs20 (20.3-10) unstable; urgency=low

   * Restructure debian/rules to build -el in binary-indep
     (closes: #26761)
   * Add emacsclient.1 manpage submitted ages ago. (closes: #22463)
   * Handle duplicate DOC files (closes: #27668)
   * Switch to gnu icon from old B&W drippy sink (closes: #33260)

emacs20 (20.3-9) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added HURD patch from Marcus Brinkmann <>.
     (closes: #38571).
   * Backed out (global-set-key [delete] 'delete-char) modification
     (Ref: #26366).  This is too controversial (think cross-platform)
     and needs to be resolved by the Debian Keyboard Czar in concert with
     others.  For now we revert to the upstream behavior...
   * Add /usr/share/info to info search path (closes: #38285).

emacs20 (20.3-8) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added patch to emacs.c from Wolfram Gloger
     <> to fix exit segfaults.
     (closes: #37745)
   * Fixed suidregister inconsistency between postinst and postrm
     (closes #36845)

emacs20 (20.3-7) unstable frozen; urgency=low

   * Needed to go to frozen too: --print-architecture was an important
     bug.  Should be OK since other fixes since -5 are minor and
   * Add conflict with w3-el (as per Ben Pfaff's <>
     request). (closes: #30413).
   * Undo broken (and unneeded) "fix" for suidregister call in postrm.

emacs20 (20.3-6) unstable; urgency=low

   * Use --print-installation-architecture rather than --print-architecture
     (closes: #28177).
   * Remove "#undef SIGIO" from m/arm.h as indicated by David Welton
     <> (closes: #31279).
   * Fix call to suidunregister (I didn't realize that it can't take
     multiple file arguments) (closes: #21243 #26886).


emacs20 (20.3-5) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Added NetWinder patches (closes: #28277).  (Thanks to David Welton)
   * Rebuilt emacs20-el so the versions coincide.  In the future, people
     need to be sure to build both binary packages when doing a
     non-maintainer binary release.  (This fix justifies inclusion into

emacs20 (20.3-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fix gnus to default to /var/spool/mail rather than /usr/spool/mail for
     mailbox locations (closes: #21364).

emacs20 (20.3-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fixed leim.  All the input methods should work now (closes: #27398).
   * Made (global-set-key [delete] 'delete-char) the default (closes: #26366).
   * Fix ownership on emacs20-el files (closes: #27398).

emacs20 (20.3-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added 20.2 patches for powerpc.  I omitted the patches to the
     following files because it looks like equivalent fixes have already
     made it into 20.3.  If anyone who understands that code better knows
     differently, please let me know.  The rest of the patches applied
     I also modified src/m/powerpc.h to fix problems calling the ldscript.

emacs20 (20.3-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version.
   * Modify all the debian/* stuff to automatically track version changes.
   * Major changes to info page handling.  Emacs20 info is now integrated into
     the main info page.  This was the best way I could think of to handle
     cross references, etc. without major source changes.
   * Locked emacs20-el and emacs20 package versions together with dependencies.
   * Add info direntries for widget, info, and customize.
   * Fix handling of /usr/local/share (which was badly broken).
   * Turn stripping back on.  It appears to work.

emacs20 (20.2-9) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fixes for leim problems (closes: #25536).  Thanks to
     Junio Hamano <>
   * update-elc now made executable (closes: #25899).  Thanks to
     Junio Hamano <>
   * Fix problem with package including dirs in /usr/local/share
     (closes: #23431).

emacs20 (20.2-8) unstable; urgency=low

   * Regenerate .elc files for .el files we've modified.  I didn't realize
     that some of the .elc files were in the upstream tar file.  Hope this
     doesn't break anything.  We haven't been using our sendmail and
     message modifications until now.  (closes: #21079).
   * Fix i386ism in debian scripts use "dpkg --print-architecture"
     instead. (closes: #20548).
   * Fixed reference in README.add-on-package-maintainers
     (closes: #23445)
   * Fix some alpha problems (closes: #21834).

     copyright files being in the wrong package (closes: #21531).

emacs20 (20.2-7) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Changed emacs20-el from standard to optional.
   * Fixed broken postrm (release critical) (closes: #24236)
   * Don't strip emacs binary (strip is broken see binutils #23153).
   * Since we can't strip, don't compile or link with "-g".

emacs20 (20.2-6) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Gack.  Fix reject due to changed .tar.gz file (./leim added to tar).

emacs20 (20.2-5) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Make sure to preserve timestamps on .el files in emacs20-el
     (closes: #20274)
   * Add leim support for alternate input methods.  May close several

emacs20 (20.2-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Explicit dependency on liblockfile0 until bug is fixed
     (closes #18186)
   * added lisp/site-lisp.el to fix info path problem (closes #18190)


emacs20 (20.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * movemail no longer suid -- not needed.
   * start from scratch with emacs-20.2 source and old emacs-19.34 and
     xemacs patches.
