 tex-common (1.7) unstable; urgency=low
   * Undo the changes of the autoscripts snippets ordering, debhelper has
     changed back to the former method.
 tex-common (1.6) unstable; urgency=low
   * Document in NEWS.Debian that support for ls-R in TEXMFHOME has been
     dropped [fk]
   * Policy: Add a chapter on meta-packages and document that they are
     usually not acceptable as dependencies
   * reverse the order of autoscripts snippets in postrm (Closes: #418984)
   * change alternative dep on cdebconf to (>= 0.39), lintian error.
 tex-common (1.5) unstable; urgency=low
   * fix missing tetex component of TEXMFDIST (Closes: #418674)
 tex-common (1.4) unstable; urgency=low
   * Change main_memory to 1500000 to go with the main_memory of mpost
     and TeX Live's texmf.cnf. This change is needed to make mpost work
     under all circumstances [np].
   * Update settings and comments in the texmf.cnf snippets to match
     upstream's as close as possible [fk]
   * Drop backwards compatibility hacks for paths (see NEWS.Debian) [fk]
   * Enable parse-first-line feature, except for Knuth's "tex". [fk]
   * Update and from TeXLive 2007 [fk]
 tex-common (1.3) experimental; urgency=low
   * Fix typography in Debian-on-TeX, thanks to Miguel de Val Borro
     <miguel.deval at> (closes: #413449) [frank]
   * In the source package, replace 'tex-sed' with a Python script named
     'texify-tex-output' to do a better job (handling all known cases so
     far, some of which seemed rather difficult to implement in sed).
     We don't need to Build-Depend on Python, because this script is only
     used when we generate PDF output from the DebianDoc documents
     (Debian-TeX-Policy, TeX-on-Debian), which we don't do at build time
     in order to avoid chicken-and-egg problems. [florent]
   * Add engine subdirectories to the search paths for MetaFont and
     MetaPost, too.  Thanks to Joerg Sommer <joerg at>
   * Change the dh_installtex removal logic since format dumps are placed
     into engine subdirectories. We now remove all format dumps and log files
     in /v/l/t/web2c and /v/l/t/web2c/$engine/
 tex-common (1.2) experimental; urgency=low
   * rename flavor format:no_format_links to format:no_links (nobody is using
     it already), and document it [NP]
   * increase trie_size to 400000 to allow the loading of all texlive 
     hyphenation patterns [NP]
   * Make sure that dh_installtex's postrm snippets won't try to run
     fmtutil-sys when it might be already uninstalled.
 tex-common (1.1) experimental; urgency=low
   * Upload to experimental.  This version is needed to build TeXLive
   * Increase trie_size to the value in TeXLive 2007, and update the
     comment from their file, too.
   * Only strip comments with '^[ \t]*# ' from the auto files to preserve
     comments starting with ## [NP]
   * small fix to dh_installtex for useless inclusion of postinst-tex
     (move the definition of $dothefullstuff into the package loop)
   * implement flavors format:build_all and format:add_one:formatname
   * let dh_installtex automatically create links for formats installed
     and add flavor to disable this behaviour.
   * fix a bug in dh_installtex which prohibits --priority to work
     correctly for command line config files. [NP]
   * add Norbert Preining <preining at> to the uploaders
   * add lintian overrides for wrongly detected bashism
 tex-common (1.0) unstable; urgency=low
   * Release as version 1.0, tex-common has been stable for months and
     deserves a non-zero version number
