     package, d'oh!

texinfo (4.6-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version.

   * Includes the fix for the makeinfo segfault on \def\x{}, closes: #168689.

texinfo (4.1-2) unstable; urgency=high

   * Removed broken /usr/share/texmf/pdftex/plain/misc/epsf.tex,
     closes: #133601.
   * Added Conflicts: ja-trans (<= 0.7-3.1), closes: #138233.

texinfo (4.1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version.

texinfo (4.0f-1) unstable; urgency=high

   * New upstream version.
   * Includes a newer, changed texinfo.tex that seems fix the PDF links,

     the info files. Feh! Hopefully automakeisms don't shit themselves all
     over the place in the buildd trees and cause the package not to build.
   * Leave our first epsf.tex in place, it's almost the same as the
     tetex-base one but there must be some reason why it exists. <ponder>
   * Put infokey into the info package.


texinfo (4.0b-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added Replaces: tetex-base (<< 1.0.2+20000804-9) because of the
     .txi files.

texinfo (4.0b-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version, includes majority of our old patches. It also
     includes support for splitting HTML output files, which closes: #41403.
   * Removed epsf.tex from this package because tetex already ships it,
     closes: #84426. The duplicate file problem didn't appear before because
     previous versions put the file in a different location. Maybe we're
     just making a mess of this.

     the above four bugs.
   * Run 'mktexlsr /usr/share/texmf >/dev/null' (conditionally and only on
     new installations) in texinfo's postinst, because we place files in that
     directory that need to be added to the ls-R file, closes: #71325.
   * Policy 3.2.1 compliant.

texinfo (4.0-4) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Fixed info's prerm script, s./usr/bin/infobrowser.infobrowser.,
     otherwise the package could not be removed, closes: #59254.


texinfo (4.0-3) frozen unstable; urgency=low

   * Applied upstream patch for closes: #56992.
   * Install infobrowser alternative for info (doh!).
   * Recompiled with ncurses 5.0 (info is a Priority: important package).

texinfo (4.0-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Another, even more nifty configure option to make it install in FHS
     compliant directories (this time borrowed from nasm's rules file :)
   * Standards-Version: 3.1.1. Added Build-Depends:.
   * Removed --with-included-gettext from configure flags, useless.
   * Removed --description and --section from all install-info arguments,
     to have install-info pick-up the INFO-DIR-ENTRY from the info files
     themselves. This way, all the sub-apps have entries, which closes: #51425.
   * Install '', too (why that wasn't done before, is beyond me).

texinfo (4.0-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version. At last, final 4.0!
   * Removed README-alpha mentionings, and added #DEBHELPER# in p* scripts
     where it was missing.
   * Used nifty configure options to make it install in FHS compliant
     directories (after seeing how it's done in libmikmod2's rules file :)
   * Removed explicit debhelper 2.0.40 dependency, and changed
     debian/{info.files,rules} to match the new state.

texinfo (3.12s-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Conforms to policy 3.x, which includes move to FHS etc. Required
     using debhelper 2.0.40, and some other changes to debian/* .
   * Added "-e" to /bin/sh in all maintainer scripts.
   * Replaced "Replaces:" with "Conflicts:" for tetex-{base,bin} in
     texinfo, because the new package has some files in locations that
     don't work well with those old versions of teTeX. Thanks to Lalo
     Martins for noticing this.
   * Removed DEFAULT_INFOPATH defining from the rules file, it's pointless
     (and it didn't work, either :). The one in filesys.h is good enough.

texinfo (3.12s-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version.
   * Upstream fixes to info/terminal.c, so I removed our patch for
     alpha compile, it's not needed anymore.

texinfo (3.12n-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added Replaces: tetex-base (<< 1.0-3), closes: #42264 .

   * Got an upstream patch to fix the non-existant argument bug. Fixes #38063.

texinfo (3.12i-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Now included C's patch to compile on Alpha, fixes #39247 and #40076.
   * Fixed texinfo's postinst, to include missing backslashes.

texinfo (3.12i-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * After some discussion with Christoph Martin, the teTeX maintainer,
     and other people from the debian-devel list, we decided to start
     providing all texinfo binaries from this source package.
   * Added new binary package, texinfo, which Replaces: tetex-bin (<< 1.0)
     and Suggests: tetex-bin (because of texi2dvi). For that reason,
     patched util/texi2dvi to exit if no tex found, with an explanation.
   * Removed install-info* and dir files from binary packages.
   * Removed obsolete README.Debian, added other upstream documentation.
   * Updated debian/copyright with additional licence/copyright info.
   * Added a menu entry for info, since it can be invoked argumentless.

   * New upstream version, includes fix for #14787 .

texinfo (3.12h-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New maintainer

texinfo (3.12-0.1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Upgraded from 3.9 to new upstream release 3.12
   * Non-maintainer release, this time with a proper -0.1 version.
   * This does not use the patches against the files info/infomap.c,
     info/session.c and util/texi2dvi from the previous Debian version.
     According to James Troup, their functionality has been integrated into
     the upstream source so that the patches are indeed obsolete.


texinfo (3.9-5) unstable; urgency=low

   * Put /usr/info/ back in package (fixes #10115)
   * Built with libc6 and ncurses3.4

texinfo (3.9-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * /usr/doc/info/changelog.Debian is now the correct file
   * Added minor texi2dvi patch from upstream maintainer
   * Added manpage for makeinfo, texi2dvi, texindex (fixes bug #6353)
   * Put info documentation under appropriate headers


texinfo (3.9-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New maintainer.

texinfo (3.6-2); priority=LOW

    in debian-tmp, and then deleting them before package construction.
    Now you can build the package without emacs.

 -- Ian Jackson <>  Sun, 16 Jul 1995 15:03:53 +0100
