 localechooser (1.42ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
   * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
     - Add a localechooser-data package containing lists useful for packages
       that create automatic installation scripts.
     - Always support English, unless preseeded otherwise.
     - Check whether the language has changed after asking the country
       question, and recalculate a number of things if so.
     - Drop fallbacks for Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk.
     - Simplify use of locale-gen using the new command-line argument
       facility in Ubuntu's locales package.
     - Move Portuguese above Portuguese (Brazil) in languagelist.l10n.
     - Add encoding field to languagelist file and use the full SUPPORTED
       file rather than SUPPORTED-short.
     - If the language question was already marked as seen and the answer
       didn't change, then don't recalculate the locale.
   * Set Vcs-Bzr for Ubuntu.
 localechooser (1.42) unstable; urgency=low
   * Since /etc/default/locale is now a conffile provided by locales,
     sed changes into it rather than overwriting. (Fall back to writing to the
     file if necessary.)

   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Rewrite some inefficient if blocks that can be done in a single
     assignment instead.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Set better defaults when localechooser is run again after it has been
     run preseeded the first time.
   * Select language selection template before checking preseeding. This
     allows us to preseed the correct template for the environment we're
     working in. It also improves behavior when preseeding without setting
     the 'seen' flag.
   * Fix bug in code2country function.
   * If for country selection the current (preseeded) value is not in the
     shortlist, show the full list instead.
