Closes: 290265 400479 409581 421355 432311 432569 432569 440411 441529 444473
 debian-goodies (0.38) unstable; urgency=low
   * Fix bug in network-test which prevent it from working properly
     when no verbose level was set.
 debian-goodies (0.37) unstable; urgency=low
   * checkrestart:
       - Do not complain about deleted files in /tmp, /var/run or /var/log
         when seen as descriptors (Closes: #441529)
       - Fix typo in checkrestart (Closes: #444473)
   * network-test:
       - Include patch provided by Federico Ceratto which adds command
         line support, allows the setting of a verbosity level and makes
         it possible to log to syslog based on that level. This patch
         is useful if the script is run through init, cron or other
         task-scheduling tool.
 debian-goodies (0.36) unstable; urgency=low
   * Exclude /var/run contents from the deleted files check which means
     that apache2, when using mod_ssl should now not be reported
     as needing a restart (Closes: 432569)
 debian-goodies (0.35) unstable; urgency=low
   * Make it Depend on python => 2.4 as the subprocess module used by
     checkrestart is not available in 2.3
   * Add CVE name to previous changelog entry
   * Minor typo fix in debian/control
 debian-goodies (0.34) unstable; urgency=high
   * Fix security bug that enables users to generate files in the
     filesystem with shell metacharacters and have the checkrestart
     script run external code (as root, since the script will only
     run as admin). This is CVE-2007-3912. (Closes: 440411)
 debian-goodies (0.33) unstable; urgency=low
   * Added description of demany in debian/control
   * Added dependencies/suggestions needed for debmany
 debian-goodies (0.32) unstable; urgency=low
   * Put debmany in the proper location (/usr/bin)
   * Remove vi swap file from sources
   * Small changes to debmany binary (typo, versiondate and a comment)
   * Update debmany's manpages, I was putting in a previous version.
 debian-goodies (0.31) unstable; urgency=low
   * Introduce the debmany script written by Michael Arlt  (it was actually in
     the sources of 0.30 but not installed in the binary package)
 debian-goodies (0.30) unstable; urgency=low
   * checkrestart changes:
     * Do not warn on processes than use /dev/zero and shows up as
       deleted. This prevents it from warning about apache2 (Closes: #432569)
     * Slightly improve the messages output.
     * Find init.d scripts even if not provided in the package by looking
       for init.d scripts that match the process name (works for apache2 too)
   * Fix some typos in which-pkg-broke(1) (Closes: #409581)
 debian-goodies (0.29) unstable; urgency=low
   * Network-test: use -t switch to use user's TMPDIR or /tmp instead of
     trying to create it under $PWD (Closes: #432311)
   * Add a Suggests: netcat (Closes: #400479)
   * popbugs: 
       * Make it parse the new format of the RC buglist properly (Closes: #421355)
       * Add a debug option
       * Fix a typo in the output
   * Change maintainer's email address in debian/control
 debian-goodies (0.28) unstable; urgency=low
   * Apply patch by Francesco Potorti that makes checkrestart list 
     processes that should be restarted when a daemon is restarted.
     This helps warn users that some processes will not be restarted
     even though they use the init script (such as active ssh connections). And
     need to be restarted manually (Closes: #290265)
   * Be more verbose when nothing needs to be done (the user might think that
     the script did not do anything!)
