 apport (0.100) hardy; urgency=low
   * bin/crash-digger: Add option --log for logging to a file, and
     --pidfile/--stop for daemonization. Add test cases to test-crash-digger.
   * bin/apport: Do not re-raise exceptions about failure to create the lock
     file, to avoid crashing in the case that another apport instance tries to
     lock at exactly the same moment. (LP: #147237)
   * apport/ testsuite: Check that our methods get along with binary
     data which turn into CompressedValue objects after loading them from a
     file. This reproduces LP #148305.
   *, CompressedValue: Add method splitlines() since we need
     it very often. Add test case to test_compressed_values(). (LP: #148305)
   * Add test case to check that update() works and does the
     right thing with binary values and overwriting. This confirms that
     importing a dictionary works.
   * debian/local/setup-apport-retracer: Update for hardy.
   * apport/crashdb_impl/ get_source_info() does not work any more
     due to HTML changes in Launchpad, and not showing the component any more
     on /distro/+source/package. Since we do not actually need component and
     release name any more, rename it to get_source_version(), fix the regular
     expression to just get the version, and adapt get_fixed_version()
   * debian/local/setup-apport-retracer: Update default apt sources to
   * apport/ Robostify cleanup of forked test processes.
   * apport/ Sleep for 0.5 seconds after creating the test process in the
     test suite to give /proc some time to settle down.
   * bin/apport: Drop evaluation of CORE_* environment variables and mandate
     calling with <pid> <signal> <core ulimit>. Drop the now obsolete
     apport/ Adapt test-apport accordingly.
   * debian/apport.init, use-local: Now call apport with %p, %s, and %c kernel
     macros (since 2.6.24). Drop Edgy support from init script.
