     package.  Note the programs are in perl, and the modules in
     perl-modules although the latter don't actually conflict as the
     directory is different (closes: #86459).
 
   * Choose one libreadline-*-perl package to suggest, as having both
     with an | was tickling an obscure bug in apt-get.
 
   * Patch perldoc to warn rather than die on non-existent dirs in @INC

     diagnostics module works without perl-doc being installed.
     (Closes: #86154).

     correctly with gcc-2.96).

perl (5.6.0-10) unstable; urgency=low

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-6.1) unstable; urgency=low

   * NMU
   * Ensure that a valid /usr/bin/perl exists before each instance of

   * If an alternative existed for perl.1p.gz before installation, the
     file of that name in this package was removed in the postinst
     update-alternatives.  The same goes for cperl-mode.el.  Install
     versioned files and manually link like the rest of the
     alternatives mess.  (Closes:  #78742, #79728).
 
     Note that both of these changes to alternative handling are merely
     stop-gap measures.  The situation still remains that installing
     perl-5.004 or 5.005 after 5.6 has been installed will play merry
     havoc with the symlinks again and stands a good chance of nuking
     /usr/bin/perl if subsequently removed.
 
   * make.versions:  rename rather than copying files so that we don't
     ship two copies of each binary in the .deb (linked to canonical
     name in postinst).
 
   * Move warnings::register to -base.  (Closes: #79075, #79234).
   * Move autosplit.ix for File::Glob to -base.  (Closes: #77384)
   * Move load_imports.al for POSIX to -base.
   * Move IO.pm to -base.
   * Move dangling libperl.so symlink to libperl5.6.

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-6) unstable; urgency=low

   * Don't do the /usr/bin/perl.dist -> /usr/bin/perl bit anymore.  dpkg
     probably doesn't need it...

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-5) unstable; urgency=low

   * Remove all alternatives related to the Perl packages.
     (closes: #76432, #76524, #77247, #77303, #77619)
   * Fixed suidperl manpage paths.  Thanks to Jim Bray <jb@as220.org>.
   * Fixed suidperl postinst (typo).  Thanks to Joey Hess
     <joeyh@debian.org>.
   * Make all uses of local perl also make use of local perl modules
     (oops).  Thanks to Daniel Jacobowitz <dan@debian.org>.
   * Fixup and apply patch to an off by one error in decode \x{}.  Thanks
     to Kai Henningsen <kaih@khms.westfalen.de>.  (09_utf8_hex_char_fix)
   * Fix 5.005 arch compatibility path now uses the correct architecture
     rather than just i386.  (closes: #78174)
   * Verified that patch in #78048 fixes @_ segfault in ops.
     (10_op_at_underscore_segfault) (closes #78048)

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * put parentheses on the end of the call to _PATH_LOG in Sys::Syslog so
     that it works.  (closes: #76966)
     Remove references to syslog.ph - 07_syslog_path_log.
   * The debug target now uses ./Configure -deS to make it not look for a
     tty. (closes: #77009)
   * Fix make.base so it works for the newer version number. (closes: #47204)
   * Add base.pm to perl-5.\d+-base for debconf (closes: #77145)
   * Add XSLoader.pm to perl-5.\d+-base.  Many module authors thought Dynaloader
     took to much memory; XSLoader is a much smaller version.
     (closes: #77280, #77292)
   * Add File::Glob to perl-5.\d+-base so those scripts using globbing work under
     5.6.  (closes: #77384)
   * Add libdb2-dev to the Build-Depends list.  (closes: #77758)
   * Downgrade perl-5.\d+-suid to optional.  (closes: #77841)
   * Only mention the problem with updating to the new Berkeley DB format
     if upgrading.  (closes: #76425)
   * 5.6.0-3 fixed the include paths already.  (closes #76421)
   * Change the documentation of AutoLoader to not suggest testing against
     the text of an error message.
     Change those places in Perl where an AUTOLOAD method does so.
     08_autoload_not_anglocentric (closes: #75256)

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-3) unstable; urgency=high

   * Quick release since 5.6.0-1 had broken paths aand 5.6.0-2 was rejected
     from Incoming  (I had the source on both of them and it was only there
     when -1 was installed.) closes: #76425)
   * Make tests not run on big endian mips (from "Florian Lohoff"
     <flo@rfc822.org>).
   * Net::Ping makes invalid assumptions about UDP always returning a
     hostname if there is any data on the socket - 06_netping_udp_fix.
     (closes: #55427).
   * Mention that perl-[.\d]+-doc overwrites parts of libansicolor-perl and
     libpod-parser-perl.  (closes: #76443)
   * Note that I'll release the no-alternatives version of all three Perl
     packages 2 days after this version is accepted so as to give it time
     to hit the mirrors.

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fix t/op/filetest.t so that it works under fakeroot -
     debian/patches/03_fix_fakeroot_op_filetest
   * Make the patched target append each patch as it goes to the 'patched'
     file.  Make the target .precious to keep make from removing it on
     error.  That would rather defeat the point.
   * rm config.sh.static in clean target
   * Shorten the make targets for building the static Perl:
     - Now, build target builds both the static Perl and the libperl with
       extensions and such.
     - Only Perl and suid Perl get built.  We don't need to build the
       extensions when we're about to blow them away.
     - We also wait performing the tests until we have the shared Perl.
   * Actually get the paths correct for Perl, using a colon separated
     privlib and archlib.
     This uncovered 2 documentation and 1 Configure bug in Perl.
   * Make NDBM_File use libgdbm's ndbm emulation instead of libdb's since
     DB_File can't handle null keys currently. -
     debian/patches/04_NDBM_uses_libgdbm
   * Perl 5.6 has to conflict with the old data-dumper package.  Since the
     package isn't available anymore in potato or woody, this shouldn't be
     a problem.
   * incpush will create duplicate path entries in @INC if either
     vendorlibexp or sitelibexp don't end in the version number of Perl.
     Patch Configure to leave _stem fields empty if they'd be the same as
     the field they are created from - 05_no_define_stem

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * With the massive problems on my system, I've been unable to fix the
     alternatives so I'm releasing this now so that people have a perl 5.6
     to use.

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-0.3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Patched up ExtUtils::MM_Unix to not use LD_RUN_PATH if the envar
     NO_LD_RUN_PATH is true.
   * Patched eg/rename to use the modern rewritten version from Robin
     Barker (Robin.Barker@npl.co.uk).

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-0.2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add the threading version of Perl into the build system.  XS
     components need it even if users can't.
   * Move the documentation to binary-indep
   * Copy Brendan's patched target wholesale for the application of
     patches.
   * Adapt Brendan's libperl changes.
     Be sure and link suidperl static.

perl-5.6 (5.6.0-0.1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version.  New numbering system.
   * Note that there is currently no threading available with this
     version.  The 5.6 threading model (interpreter threads) isn't
     currently usable from user space.  5.005 threads can be built but only
     will be if there is a demand for it since perl-5.005 is available.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-7) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * This needs to be put into frozen so that Alpha has the correct
     syscall.ph constants (important bug #55794) and the copyright on the
     perl-policy is correct (important bug #60233)
   * Changed copyright on perl-policy.sgml from "the Debian Project" to
     "Software in the Public Interest".  This is so the document is
     actually copyrighted by a legal entity.  This closes: bug#60233.
   * Completely regenerated the *.ph files.  There appears to be a clean
     separation these days of system specific stuff into the asm
     directories.  The only question would be the stuff in the bits/
     directory since that seems to be autogenerated by the kernel.
     The only one that I know needs it is bits/syscall.ph.  I've written a
     script to make sure it takes in all the syscalls as necessary.
     Note that this is a somewhat long job since h2ph only does a 90% job,
     so the generated .ph files take a bit of hand-editing.  This closes:
     bug#55794.
   * Install the Perl Social Contract (Porting/Contract) into the doc
     directory of the perl-5\d+-doc package.  This closes #51963.
   * Modified lib/ExtUtils/MM_Unix.pm so that if the environment variable
     NO_LD_RUN_PATH is set true, then MakeMaker won't use LD_RUN_PATH in
     the dynamic_lib method and therefore the .so won't have an rpath built
     into them.  This closes: bug#47116.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-6) unstable frozen; urgency=low

   * Change Recommends perl-doc to Suggests and add
     $(DOCDIR)/Where_is_the_Documentation.gz closes: Bug#59145
   * Make suidperl be suid even if suidmanager isn't installed. closes:
     Bug#55521.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-5.3) unstable frozen; urgency=low

   * NMU

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-5.1) unstable; urgency=low

   * NMU
   * Adds IO::File; closes: #54922

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-5) unstable; urgency=low

   * Accept all of Raphael Hertzog's changes in the NMU.  Thanks a lot
     Raphael for helping me through this hard time.  Your patches were
     without flaw.
   * I'll be fixing this up much more in the coming week.  This release is
     to fix the critical bug below.
   * Change perl-5.005-doc to Suggests and make sure
     /usr/share/doc/perl-5.005/Where_is_the_Documentation is installed.
     Closes: #43078.
   * Add overload.pm to perl-base as a temporary patch until debconf
     doesn't use Data::Dumper anymore.  Closes: #53428

1999

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-4.1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Non maintainer upload.
   * Non-bugs that can be closed. Closes: #51656, #49812, #45908, #47122
   * Removes perl-=version= if no more needed. Closes: #46187, #41436, #46188
     Also calls update-alternatives remove only when removing
     the package. Closes: #46581
   * Correct permissions of perl-=version= in postinst after
     update-alternatives to prevent failures like we had because
     of a 0600 perl binary. Closes: #45898, #45875, #45877, #45898, #46369
   * Removed LD_RUN_PATH="". Closes: #48544
   * Added POSIX/autosplit.ix to perl-5.005-base. Closes: #50242
   * Added Data::Dumper to perl-5.005-base. Closes: #50552
   * Added IPC::Open2, IPC::Open3, Text::Wrap and Text::Tabs to
     perl-5.005-base. Closes: #50937
   * Added the perl5.005 binary too. Closes: #51289
   * I moved many files from one packages to another. I had to add
     a Replaces field in order to not cause problems.
   * Corrected postinst from perl-5.005-doc.
     Closes: #45863, #45870, #45887, #47870
   * Added Errno.pm to perl-5.005-base. Closes: #47204
   * Use relative symlinks for compatibility /usr/doc/* link. Closes: #48286
   * Applied the patch for mipsel support. Closes: #48915
   * perl-5.005-doc replaces: libcgi-perl until a better solution can be found
     for the overlapping manpages.
     Closes: #47245, #47844, #47996, #52632, #49371

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * Many changes to make Perl build on Hurd from Marcus Brinkman, closes:
     Bug#31621.
     - Update debian/README to partially reflect the current situation; no
       need to type root password; the problem with locales was fixed long ago.
     - Update debian/copyright to talk about Debian rather than Debian/GNU;
       There are now many O'Reilly books on Perl.  Don't mention a number.
     - Convince debian/make.base and debian/make.versions to use
       $cpu-$system rather than $arch.
     - Use linux and gnu as acceptable systems in debian/make.base
     - Don't try to mkdir with '/' on the end of the name in debian/make.base
     - Skip packages we don't build in debian/make.versions
     - Change all maintainer scripts to use =cpu=-=system= rather than
       =arch=
     - Many changes to debian/rules to allow for conditional testing (not
       on arm, hurd) and conditional building of threads (not on hurd,
       5.004)
       I think this is the last thing (other than debian/control) that is
       different between the builds.  I'll parameterize debian/control on
       the next build and we'll be happy.
   * Change the paths in debian/rules and debian/perl-policy.MK to be FHS
     compliant.
   * Make the postinsts/prerms install/remove the compatibility symlink for
     the move from FSSTD to FHS.
   * Fix debian/make.versions to be FHS compliant as well.
   * Use -fPIC in the cccdlflags so that Perl compiles with -fPIC everwhere
     instead of -fpic in some places.  This now complies with policy and
     closes: Bug#41587, #43930.
   * Have make test actually use make test-notty so as to not die on
     automated compiles.  Closes: Bug#33225.
   * Use unlink instead of system("rm -f ...") in debian/make.base.  I seem
     to've gotten carried away using cp -a a while back and used system
     instead of unlink. Brain needs to be on...
   * Change the mention of the location of the GPL and Artistic copyright
     files in debian/copyright from /usr/doc/copyright to
     /usr/share/common-licenses.
   * Fix Getopt::Long so that the documentation of the require_order
     configuration option is now correct closes: Bug#39180.
   * Embedding works now.  It's probably as Tom Rothamel
     <tom-pine-1@onegeek.org> said; Perl just needed to be recompiled with
     glibc2.1.  Closes: Bug#38615.
   * In gv.c, Fix for 'use Safe;' with -w segfaults from Sarathy installed.
     Closes: Bug#38533.
   * In handy.h, only #define HAS_BOOL due to _G_HAVE_BOOL if we're using
     g++.  _G_HAVE_BOOL is defined in _G_config.h.  This will probably be
     included in a gcc program since stdio.h includes libio.h which
     includes _G_config.h.  Thanks to Greg Stark <gsstark@mit.edu>.  This
     can be closed once it is tested.
   * Namespace was cleaned up a while ago, closes: bug#33844.
   * Complaining locales was fixed a while ago, closes: bug#30207.
   * Perl has been compiled with glibc for a while, closes: bug#29452.
   * rename has been included, closes: bug#26616.
   * cperl-mode is installed in the right place now, closes: bug#24249.
   * Specify man1dir in Configure so that it goes to the FHS compliant
     place.
   * Fix the paths for $(LIBDIR)/ExtUtils/inst $(LIBDIR)/ExtUtils/xsubpp
     $(LIBDIR)/File/DosGlob.pm to make lintian happy.
   * Make $(LIBDIR)/ExtUtils/inst $(LIBDIR)/ExtUtils/xsubpp executable to
     make lintian happy.
   * Remove $(LIBDIR)/CGI/Fast.pm since we don't include FCGI.pm.  This
     satisfies lintian and closes: bug#44544.
   * Applied patch from Jim Pick <jimpick@jimpick.com> that adds the
     appropriate arch-specific *.ph files in debian/.ph/asm-arm.  This
     would close bug#44605 but it's requiring some *.ph files he doesn't
     supply.  Mail sent off to him about this.  Got
     .ph/arm-arch/proc/shmparam.ph from him.  Closes: bug#44605.
   * Add Porting/patchls to /usr/bin, fix its path.
   * install-doc should show be used in both remove && upgrade for prerm.
     Add stuff to debian/doc.postinst to deal with this problem.
   * Added re.pm and friends to perl-5.\d+-base.  This closes: bug#45552.
   * Removed the large number of extra POSIX autoloader modules.  The
     locale stuff that's part of POSIX don't need these.
   * I've already moved to /usr/share/man in this package and so, this
     closes: bug#45678.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * run with 'make LD_RUN_PATH=""' so that we don't have rpath information
     in the shared libraries.  (Many lintian warnings.)
   * Make the shell read in the perl-base.preinst script not fail when
     stdin is /dev/null.  (Closes Bug#41598)
   * Rename asm-ppc (as it is in the linux tree) to asm-powerpc (as policy
     says it should be).  Closes Bug#42803.
   * Add DirHandle.pm to base.  (I thought I had done this.)  Closes
     Bug#33229.
   * Implemented patch from Julian Gilbey <J.D.Gilbey@qmw.ac.uk> that fixes
     up INSTALLPRIVLIB so as to make it easier for packagers.  Closes
     Bug#42421.
   * Provide perl5-suid. Closes Bug#42884.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added arm architecture to debian/make.base, Closes Bug #40666.
     (Thanks to Jim Pick <jim@jimpick.com>)
   * Made a few more changes to debian/rules to support bugs in fileutils
     (see bug #39680 that I filed) as well as testing for arm under make
     test and letting it fail.  There has to be a better way to do this.
     Fixes from Jim Pick <jim@jimpick.com>
   * perl-5.\d+-doc replaces perl (<< 5.004.05-1) so the manpages won't
     conflict.  Closes Bug #40689.
     (Thanks to Joel Klecker <jk@espy.org>)
   * Conditionalize the inclusion of ndbm.h in ext/NDBM_File/NDBM_File.xs
     so that m68k (still on glibc 2.0) will build.  Closes Bug #40781.
     (thanks to Roman Hodek <Roman.Hodek@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>)
   * New version of perl-policy from Raphael.
   * Fix Config.pm's startperl to be /usr/bin/perl (or
     /usr/bin/perl-thread) when the build is done.
   * Fix the installman[13]dir's in Config.pm so a simple perl Makefile.PL;
     make test; make install will work from the user's point of view.
     Closes bugs #34106, #15797, #28955.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Release to Incoming on master.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-0.10) unstable; urgency=low

   * Oops.  rename needs to be versioned along with all the other
     commands.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-0.9) unstable; urgency=low

   * perl.1p.gz didn't have an update-alternatives --remove in the prerm.
   * Make perl-$(version)-thread provide perl5-thread so packages using
     perl-thread don't have to depend on a versioned perl-thread.
   * No longer conflict with data-dumper so that it can remain installed
     while perl-5.004 and the older packages need it.
   * No longer ask if we should abort during the preinst.  Perl 5.004 isn't
     diabled with the installation of Perl 5.005, so there is no reason.
   * Convince commands with no manpages that they should have an
     unversioned symlink installed by update-alternatives.
   * Installed updated eg/rename as a command.  eg/rename was updated by
     Robin Barker <Robin.Barker@npl.co.uk).
   * Added the Perl Policy to the doc package.  Registered it with
     doc-base.  I'll install the other docs with it later.
   * Change the description of perl-base to mention perl-=version= rather
     than just perl.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-0.8) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fix typo in perl-base.postinst (=version instead of =version=)
   * Add all of POSIX.pm,.so,.al to perl-base in an initial attempt at
     supporting Internationalization in the base disks.
     We'll need to remove *.al files that aren't necessary and put them in
     perl.
   * Automate the update-alternatives lines for the man pages for
     perl-thread.  This way when another Thread::*.3pm comes along, I don't
     have to notice, it will.
   * Add/Remove /usr/local/lib/site_perl/$arch-linux-thread in
     thread.postinst/prerm if /usr/local/lib is writable.
   * Fixed missing parens around $version when moving perl.1p back to perl
     from perl-doc
   * Mentioned installing 5.004_05 in copyright file as well as correcting
     the path to CPAN on www.perl.com.
   * Add Debian changelog to perl-base.
   * Remaining typo fixes from Raphael:
     /usr/man/man1/perl-=version=.1p.gz in postinst
     startperl should be #!/usr/bin/perl-$(version)
     the asm *.ph directories should be =version=/=arch=-version
   * perl-$(version)-base should conflict with perl-base rather than perl.
     This way, if someone has never installed the full Perl package, they
     still conflict until all the non-versioned Perl is gone.
   * rename threadperl-5.005 to perl-5.005-thread.  Raphael is right;
     tab-completion is handy.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-0.7) unstable; urgency=low

   * Integrated Raphael's changes without the debhelper stuff.
   * Made cperl-mode.el be version specific with alternatives.
   * Raphael updated the Standards-Version in control to 2.5.0.
   * Raphael fixed up the base.postinst so that the newly installed
     (not-yet-versioned) perl runs update-alternatives.
   * Made perl-version-doc Recommend perl-version instead of just Suggest
     it.  perl-doc should only not be installed in special cases.
   * Made perl-version-thread Priority: extra instead of optional.
     Considering the experimental nature of threaded Perl right now, I'd
     say it qualifies having specialized requirements.
   * Applied the same changes to the i386-linux-thread tree as I did to the
     i386-linux tree.  Don't want my paths leaking into Config.pm.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-0.6) unstable; urgency=low

   * Removed io reference.
   * Corrected perl-5.005-thread postinst/versionning/building.
   * Added replaces data-dumper to perl-5.005-doc so that
     the Data::Dumper man page may be overwritten without
     forcing.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-0.5) unstable; urgency=low

   * Converted to debhelper.
   * Added POSIX stuff into perl-5.005-base.
   * Corrected many lintian warnings/errors
   * WARNING: NDBM_File and DB_File built with libdb2 - this is
     incompatible with old db files.

perl-5.005 (5.005.03-0.4) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release.
   * Major changes to the debian files as we go to versioned Perls.

perl (5.005.02-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release.  Note that this is a very basic release so that
     module authors can release their stuff under 5.005.  (Fixes Bug
     #26072)
   * Defined d_statblks in Configure (Fixes Bug #22367)
   * Conflict, replace, and provide data-dumper since it's now provided by
     Perl.  (Fixes Bug #27543)
   * Specifically turn off sfio for the standard release of Perl.

perl (5.004.04-6) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Fix symlinks for perl-suid and perl-debug doc directories.  (Fixes Bug

   * Make sure that all files are readable.  (Fixes Bug #20791)
   * Make changes to c2ph.PL (includes pstruct), perldoc, and s2p so that
     they try to use POSIX::tmpnam() in creating temp files.  Note that
     perlbug already checks for the existence of the temp file before
     creating it.  (Fixes Bug #19805)
   * Apply patch from next maintenance release so that -e scripts are kept
     in memory rather than written to a temporary file.
   * Fix typo in perlop(1p).  Thanks to Richard Braakman <dark@xs4all.nl>
     for pointing this out.  (Fixes Bug #22488)
   * Add /usr/doc/perl/perlfaq-is-free to explain Tom Christiansen's intent
     with his perlfaq copyright.  (Closes Bugs #10286, #22705)
   * Fix typos in postrm scripts.  Thanks to Mark Eichin <eichin@arepa.com>
     for this.  (Fixes Bug #23107)

perl (5.004.04-5) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add copyright file to perl-base since it makes it comply with the
     standards and doesn't take up much space.  (Fixes Bug #19384)
   * Added files to base so that dpkg-ftp is fully supported.  (Actually in
     -4, but I forgot to mention it.)  (Fixes Bug #16134)
   * Added even more files to base so that libnet is fully supported.
     (Fixes Bug #18338, #18593)
   * Remove /usr/lib/perl5/DynaLoader.pm - yet another file left over from
     disk install. (Fixes Bug #17970, #18823)
   * Specify -DSTRUCT_TM_HASZONE to keep POSIX from dumping core.  (Fixes
     Bug #17393)
   * debugperl and suidperl now have manpages that are symbolic links to
     perl(1p).  I debated linking debugperl(1p) to perlrun(1p) and
     suidperl(1p) to perlsec(1p) but didn't think that was appropriate.
     (Fixes Bugs #6295, #6330, #9847, #9995, #10102).
   * Changed description of perldebug to say that it shows internals of
     Perl and helps debug Perl.  (Fixes Bug #17547).
   * Changed the permissions on suidperl to give group and world read
     access.  It makes no sense to restrict read access when anyone can get
     a copy of off CPAN.
   * Also registered suidperl with suidmanager.  (Fixes Bug #15702)
   * Remove the execute permission and use strip --strip-unneeded on all
     the .so's.  (Fixes #5100, #5124, #6328, #6903)
   * Sym-Link find2perl.1p.gz and pod2latex.1p.gz to undocumented.7.gz until
     I can write something or it's provided.  Sym-Link pod2text.1p.gz to
     Pod::Text.3pm.gz.  (Fixes #6328)
   * Sym-link /usr/doc/perl/changelog to /usr/doc/perl/Changes so that the
     latest upstream changes file has the proper name.
   * Tell perl_archive in ExtUtils::MM_Unix to return -lc so that the
     shared libraries built with MakeMaker have libc dependency information
     embedded in them.  Note that if the module specifies it's own
     libraries, those will come after the -lc.  If this is a problem, the
     module should specify -lc in its library list.
   * Use mkstemp to avoid security/dos race conditions in /tmp.

perl (5.004.04-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add || true to the fixup lines in the perl.postinst - the previous
     method didn't expose the error return of rmdir -p, the if;then;fi
     method does.  (Fixes Bugs #15854, #16412, #17328, #17425)
   * Adapted patch from Stephen Zander <srz@mckesson.com> so that Perl
     knows to use getspnam if shadowing is enabled.  (Needed extra
     Configure bits added.) (Fixes Bug #15993)
   * Added Conflicts: perl (<<5.004.04-2) to perl-base so you can't install
     it with an older version of the perl package.  (Fixes Bug #16810)
   * Make sure that none of the gzipped examples are executable in
     /usr/doc/perl/examples.  (Fixes Bug #11978)
   * Remove /usr/lib/perl5/IO/Handle.pm.  It was left over from a disk
     install where parts of Perl weren't handled by dpkg.  Its presence is
     causing version mis-matches.  (Fixes Bug #15572)

1997

perl (5.004.04-3) unstable; urgency=medium (High for those upgrading from bo)

   * A start on building a libperl5.so.\d+.  I'm going to put this into
     since 1) Perl is linking with a static libperl.a and 2) people may
     want to install libperl5.so.\d+ without installing perl.
   * Oops.  I hadn't considered the chance that the old perl package would
     be replaced by the new perl package (without Perl) before perl.base
     was configured.  Added a pre-depends of perl-base (>=5.004.04-2) to
     make sure that Perl is always installed on an upgrade.
   * The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time.  The remaining 10%
     of the time takes the other 90%.  Building a libperl ran into some
     interesting snags and will not debut with this version.
   * Adapted patch by Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> that uses
     if's in the postinst so that we don't get false negatives on
     install.  Took the chance to change the find/xargs to use -print0/-0
     jic.

perl (5.004.04-2) unstable; urgency=medium

   * Wonderful idea from Scott Ellis <storm@stormcrow.ml.org>, set archlib
     to be the major version so that maintenance versions don't break all
     the arch-dependent perl-debian packages.
   * Strip a2p, fixing Bug #14891.
   * Files copied by make.base should keep hard-links.

perl (5.004.04-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream (maintenance) version
   * Turn off Perl 5.003 compatibility since this is the libc6
     version. (should've been done last version)
   * All tests finally pass now that locale test #102 was considered not
     important for Perl.
   * First attempt to get perl-base -really- working.  (As opposed to what
     I did in 5.003.07).

perl (5.004.02-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream (maintenance) version
   * Recompiled for libc6.
   * Remove ftp.pl from the distribution since it depends on chat2.pl which
     is obsolete and has been removed from the perl dist at the request of
     its author.
   * Remove the -I/usr/include/db since that was only for libc5.

perl (5.004-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * I had a semi-colon in the wrong place such that the gzip of the
     man-pages (which are now compressed) killed off the removal of the
     build artifacts in Config.pm.  Enough still ran so as to not be overly
     noticeable.  Registering bug against gzip since it should be possible
     to not have an error if you try to compress already compressed files.

perl (5.004-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Perl 5.004 is released.  Another debian version will follow that fixes
     packaging problems.
   * Applied patch from HJ Lu for libc6.
   * Edit copyright file for correct version.
   * Take the /bin/perl link out of the build tar's postinst.

perl (5.003.07-10) unstable frozen; urgency=HIGH

   * SUID perl patch to fix buffer overrun that allows any user to get a
     suid-root shell.

perl (5.003.07-9) unstable frozen; urgency=medium

   * Applied patch from HJ Lu for libc6
   * Removed perl-base from dist for release into bo
   * This will be the last release that has /bin/perl as a link (or at all).

perl (5.003.07-8) unstable; urgency=low

   * How'd that get in there?
     Somehow a static version of postinst crept into the dist such that it
     depended on 5.00320 and i386.  embarrased

perl (5.003.07-7) unstable; urgency=low

   * Compile the perl library with -D_REENTRANT for LinuxThreads.  It's
     still dangerous and there are problems with MULTIPLICITY (which this
     isn't compiled with) as well.
   * Sent the output of the various rmdir -p's in postinst to /dev/null so
     that people don't see old gunk.
   * Included target to add a comment to the changelog so that an automatic
     package from untarring this in a new perl subversion works with the
     correct version.

perl (5.003.07-6) unstable; urgency=low

   * Changed perl, perl-suid, and perl-debug to section interpreters.
     Changed perl-base to section base.
   * Changed rules to determine the perl version dynamically so that it
     doesn't have to be editted for each new version.
   * Rebuld and upload so that perl will just pre-depend on libc5.4 rather
     than libc5.4.17-1.  This and -5 were destined for stable and 5.4.17-1
     isn't available for that.

perl (5.003.07-5) unstable; urgency=low

   * Moved config.over.MK to the debian directory so that all the files
     that I add are there.
   * Just ignore the mkdir on /usr/local as the easiest solution to the
     NFS-ro /usr/local problem.  Suggestion by Guy Maor <maor@ece.utexas.edu>.

1996

perl (5.003.07-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * Fixed problem with suidperl.  It will actually run suid now.

perl (5.003.07-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Add check to postinst to check for old perlconfig created include
     directories and removed them.
   * Made perlbase's Config.pm use the correct install paths
   * Made perl provide/replace/conflict with perlbase to replace it
     properly
   * No longer put libperl.a in suidperl since we not doing shared perl.

perl (5.003.07-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Changed Perl to provide io as well as conflict with it since it's been
     subsumed into the main perl distribution.
   * Applied patch from Nick to make use FileHandle; work transparently
     although is should be use IO::Handle (or other appropriate IO::)
   * Applied patch from Randy so that use sigtrap doesn't complain anymore.
   * Applied patch from Paul that changes use strict tie; into a warning.
   * Changed perl back to a static libperl
   * Developed and packaged a perl-base to go on the base-floppies.

perl (5.003.07-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   * added code to postinst/prerm that only creates the empty
     /usr/local/lib/site_perl directory if /usr/local/lib is writable by
     root (fixes Bug #5003)
   * Updated to dpkg standards version 2.1.1.0  (fixes Bugs #3874, 4709)
   * Pre-generated all the *.ph files that people will probably need.  The
     correct asm directory will have a symbolic link set during postinst.
     (fixes Bugs #4493, 4739, 1856, 3770, 3277, 3803, 3814, 1099, 3784,
      1201, 1170, 3908, 2405, 4717, 2184, 1411, 2440)
     I wonder if this is a record for the most number of bugs fixed by a
     change.
   * Changed debian.rules to generate a shared libperl for the main
     executable with a static suidperl and debugperl.  This should help
     Fast-CGI, nvi, and if folks are using the compiler.
   * Edited the copyright file to reflect current reality rather than
     bygone days (fixes Bug #2589)
   * Added Pre-depends: ldso to control file in case the user upgrades ldso
     at the same time they upgrade Perl. (fixes Bug #2589)
   * Made sure that all files in the examples directory
     (/usr/doc/perl/examples) were readable (fixes Bug #3995, 4615, 4734,
     4870)
   * Added symbolic link /usr/doc/perl/examples to point to the examples
     directory. (fixes Bug #3997)  (this is obsoleted by new standards)

Old changelog format(s), not parsed

Perl 5.003 Debian 2 Mon Jul  1 01:27:23 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Added check for pre-depends support into preinst
	* Added a link to ../usr/bin/perl from /bin/perl
	* Had Configure undef CSH so that we don't need to depend on csh
	  anymore.

Perl 5.003 Debian 1 Tue Jun 25 02:25:00 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Added patches from Charles Bailey to bring Perl up to 5.003
	* Included patch set from Andy Dougherty to fix gconvert problem.

Perl 5.002 Debian 10 Thu Jun  6 01:05:36 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* The permissions of many of the files were set right.  Fix in
	  debian.rules so this can't happen again.

Perl 5.002 Debian 9 Tue Jun  4 02:00:00 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Changed recommends of perl from source | includes to libc5-dev
	  in accord with where the include files actually come from
	* Added the following Priority fields: Perl - Important (from
	  Packages), perl-suid - Standard, perl-debug - Optional
	* use dpkg-name instead of a manual move

Perl 5.002 Debian 9 Wed May  1 00:13:32 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Changed the '_' in the the package names to '-' per Ian Jackson.

	  remove the tcsh once c-shell is provided by it.
	* Changed the suidperl from being a question in the postinst to
	  being it's own package.
	* Added perld (debugging perl) as a package.  Both of these are
	  dependent on the specific version of perl.  We'll see if this
	  causes a problem in upgrading.
	* Changed mail address in postinst to debian-bugs@pixar.com.  I've
	  got to do something about perlconfig

Perl 5.002 Debian 8 Wed Apr 17 02:48:46 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Changed the tcsh dependency to c-shell.
	* Added the dosuid define to Configure so that perl would once
	  again create a suidperl.  It was dropped from the upstream
	  release.  There is a question in the postinst that asks if you
	  want it or not.

Perl 5.002 Debian 8 Mon Mar 11 23:01:27 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Added dependency on tcsh until the globbing works without
	  calling csh.

Perl 5.002 Debian 7 Fri Feb 23 21:41:04 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>
	* Added changes from the m68k project to make perl compile cleanly on m68k

	  string was modified)
	* Patch from dean to shutup warnings from File:Path

Perl 5.002 Debian 5 Tue Feb  6 03:52:37 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Implemented basic (sev 1) changes to Config.pm for initial fix
	  on Bug #1916.  The debian install paths are no longer embedded
	  in it.

Perl 5.002 Debian 5 Mon Feb  5 19:02:01 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* patch to avoid segv's in certain globs (Chip)
	* make autoloader warnings go away (Ilya)

	  path (Roderick Shertler)
	* Dean upgraded h2xs to 1.15

	* Paul upgraded xsubpp to 1.932
	* The documentation for the -M switch had been dropped somewhere.
	  This puts it back in.  (from Tom)
	* $@ would append to itself with each die

Perl 5.002 Debian 4 Fri Jan 26 03:15:26 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* perlxs.pod documentation patch by Dean

	* Paul upgraded xsubpp to 1.931
	* Started using the debian-extract-changes.pl from the libdb package

Perl 5.002 Debian 4 Tue Jan 23 11:43:51 1996  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Ilya fixed parts of the Readline pod docs
	* Andy left out a piece on the pod/Makefile patch
	* patch to DBL_BIG in case someone tries to build this with a.out

	* Upgraded to perl5.002beta2 from Andy
	* Added in the pod fixes from Tom

	* Upgraded to the upstream version of perl5.002beta1h from Andy
	* Removed the a.out generation from debian.rules since I'm not
	  making a.out packages anymore
	* Changed pod/Makefile from PERL = perl to PERL = ../miniperl so
	  that a build will work if you don't have perl installed already
	* Changed installperl to not try to guess about links if you
	  installing to a different directory than you will be running
	  from (debian-tmp/usr/bin)

Perl 5.002 Debian 4 Fri Dec 29 23:57:14 1995  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Added a check to see if /usr/local/include is there before
	  attempting to build .ph files from the .h files there (Bug #1856)

Perl 5.002 Debian 4 Fri Dec 22 01:39:08 1995  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Added the patch 5.002b1g from Tom - a documentation only patch

Perl 5.002 Debian 3 Tue Dec 19 01:47:19 1995  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Perl now uses the new sonames for libgdbm and libdb with
	  dependencies on the new names (libdb1 and libgdbm1)
	
Perl 5.002 Debian 3 Mon Dec 18 03:23:04 1995  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Summary of additions:
	  Added patches a-f from Andy
	  Applied the patch to implement Safe perl that will be coming out
	  soon.
	  Applied some documentation patches - perldata/dsc/mod/ref by
	  TomC, perlembed by JonO, tiehash by RandyR, and perlxs by DeanR
	* Had to cruft up the Configure script so that it does an nm on
	  static libs and an nm -D on shared libs.  I thought just nm
	  should work on both.

Perl 5.002 Debian 2 Mon Nov 27 02:34:59 1995  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Removed find lines in debian.rules binary install since
	  installperl does a good job of it
	* Removed find lines in postinst/perlconfig since the include file
	  permissions and modes should be fine.
	* moved /usr/doc/perl/example_code to /usr/doc/examples/perl
	* Changed reference in example README to 'eg' directory to
	  examples directory
	* Changed some bad paths in example code directory
	* Had install check and not ask about installing in odd places if
	  debian-tmp is in the install-path

Perl 5.002 Debian 1 Sat Nov 25 01:05:15 1995  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Removed manual generation of manpages in debian.rules file.  Now
	  just call ./installman with the appropriate arguments.
	* Changed extensions for man1 pages to 1p and man3 pages to 3pm
	* Changed Configure so that it actually listens when you tell it
	  what extensions to use for for man1 and man3.
	* Changed references to /usr/local and perl5.000 in the man pages
	* Changed references in scripts from /usr/local to /usr
	* Setup config.over file to fix-up config.sh to install into
	  debian-tmp/usr/* instead of trying to do it in sh.  The shared
	  libs weren't going in the right place.
	* Generated absolute path in config.over since the install runs
	  from many different subdirectoris

Perl 5.002 Debian 1 Wed Nov 22 20:42:34 1995  Darren Stalder <torin@daft.com>
	* Applied some doc changes to perlre.pod

Perl 5.002 Debian 1 Tue Nov 21 02:57:54 1995  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* Updated to 5.002beta1.
	* Changed the prerm/postinst scripts to reflect the new version
	  specific *.ph directories
	* Added dependencies on libgdbm and libdb, giving support for
	  those databases.
	* Removed gdbm capability from aout version.  User can add it if
	  necessary without recompiling perl.
	* SDBM problem went away with patchlevel 2.

Perl 5.002 Debian 1 Sat Nov 18 00:16:15 1995  Darren Stalder  <torin@daft.com>

	* I (Darren Stalder) took over as maintainer of Perl.
	* Put quotes around $Config{archlibexp} in h2ph.PL to prevent -w
	  warnings.
	* Changed the various debian files to reflect the new status.
	* Changed the debian.rules to use elf as the primary development
	  platform with a.out being secondary.
	* Having problems with SDBM.

Perl 5.001 Debian 7 (5.001n) - ??-??-95 Ray Dassen <jdassen@wi.LeidenUniv.nl>
* UNRELEASED
* Longer Description field in control file.
* Changed Maintainer field to myself. This package should still be considered
  orphaned though.
* a.out version now does dynamic loading via libdld.

Perl 5.001 Debian 6 (5.001n) - 04-11-95 Ray Dassen <jdassen@wi.LeidenUniv.nl>
* Updated to 5.001n: big patch, small problems remain.
* debian.rules now passes definitions to Configure, instead of running
  Configure with a modified hints/linux.sh.
* Use a variable in debian.rules to test the binary format.
* With ELF, DB_File support is disabled (rather ad hoc).
* Use softlinks for suidperl and perl<version>.
* Added explicit Depends: elf-libc, which was implicit (via elf-libgdbm).

Perl 5.001 Debian 5 (5.001m) - 16-10-95 Ray Dassen <jdassen@wi.LeidenUniv.nl>
* ELF version has GDBM support; depends on elf-libgdbm
* Diff now relative to Andy Dougherty's patches (these are unofficial, but
  de facto standard).
