 snort      - Flexible Network Intrusion Detection System
Closes: 445113 445113 445113 458161 458214 458533 458621 458790 458823 460344 462423 462674 462865 462865 463020 463650 466073 466674
 snort (2.7.0-13) unstable; urgency=low
   * Make the build: target be an empty one, instead of having it depend on
     both build-arch and build-indep
   * Remove texlive-latex-recommended from Build-Depends-Indep as suggested by
     James Vega
 snort (2.7.0-12) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add texlive-latex-recommended to Build-Depends-Indep since refcount.sty
     and kvoptions.sty are used 
   * Have the binary-{arch,indep} depend on install-{arch,indep} instead
     of in the install target.
       - Move install calls related to snort-common to the install-indep target
   * Add some sty files to the build-indep checks in debian/rules so that the
     documentation is not compiled unless all are available. Yes, buildds are
     stupid enough to pre-install latex, make the previous checks insufficient
     and *still* call the build (not build-arch) target! (Closes: #445113)
   * Unindent comments in debian/rules so that they do not show up.
 snort (2.7.0-11) unstable; urgency=low
   * Make the init.d script not depend on the availability of iproute.
     (Closes: #463020, #466674) 
   * Added a Recommends on iproute, as it can be used to improve the
     behaviour of the initd script.
   * Modify the init.d script to remove also the lockfiles for PIDFILEs
   * Move snort-doc to Suggests in the snort package and add it to snort-pgsl
     and snort-mysql too.
   * Fix FTBFS on GNU/kFreeBSD (due to unsatisfied Build-Depends on
     iptables-dev), thanks to Petr Salinger for the fix (Closes: #466073)
   * Modify src/snort.c to prevent it from showing a message when it tries to
     remove the PIDFILE. This fails in Debian since Snort is not running 
     as the root user and the daemon cannot modify /var/run. The code is 
     changed so that the error message related to not being able to remove the
     PIDFILE is only presented if running as root or writing the PIDFILE to a
     directory that is not /var/run. (Closes: #462423)
   * Po-debconf translation updates:
       - Fix error in Italian translation (Closes: #462865)
       - Japanese translation update, provided by Hideki Yamane (Closes: #463650)
 snort (2.7.0-10) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add a new ALLOW_UNAVAILABLE definition in /etc/default/snort which
     makes the init.d not complain if a configured interface is not available.
     Also make the init.d script not break if no instances are configured
     through debconf (to make it possible to use snort using just if-up.d
     by providing a given interface instance as a 'start' parameter)
     (Closes: #458823)
   * Fix typo in templates, unfuzzy translations I can "understand" and
     which seem to have fixed the typo themselves.
   * Po-debconf updates:
     - Update German translation provided by Erik Schanze (Closes: #462674)
     - Updated Italian translation provided by Gianluca Cotr (Closes: #462865)
     - Romanian translation provided by Eddy Petrisor (Closes: #460344)
 snort (2.7.0-9) unstable; urgency=low
   * Modify debian/rules to prevent autobuilders from building 
     the binary-independent components: (Closes: #445113)
     (Thanks dato for the tip)
      * Create a new Build-Depends-Indep with all the TeX components used
        to build documentation
      * Since autobuilders call build, which in turns calls build-indep, hack
        the debian rules file so that the documentation is only built
        if ps2pdf, dvips and pslatex are available. 
   * Enable prelude support in all variants (Closes: #458790)
   * Debconf translation updates:
      - Dutch, provided by Peter Vandenabeele
      - Vietnamese, provided by Clytie Siddall (Closes: #458161)
      - Portuguese, provided by Miguel Figueiredo (Closes: #458214)
      - Galician, provided by Jacobo Tarrio (Closes: #458533)
      - French, provided by Christian Perrier (Closes: #458621)
 snort (2.7.0-8) unstable; urgency=low
   * Rewrite debian/rules:
       - the documentation does not get build on the binary-arch target,
       (Closes: #445113) 
       - there is now a install-dep and install-arch
       - install-* dependencies do not depend on build
       - create a 'clean-sources' target, used only by the 'clean' target
       - create a script to clean the sources properly before
         each run
       - call '' before a binary (pgsql, mysql...) is built to
         prevent the binary-* rule from calling 'distclean' at the end of each
         run (and thus making issues more difficult to debug)
       - generate a configure target and use it when building both -arch
         and -indep (needed to generate doc/Makefile)
       - copy, instead of moving, the binaries, so the 'install' target 
         is more idempotent (still have to use dh_install more to make it so)
   * Change Maintainer's email address
   * Create a mechanism to generate all the templates using a "template of
     templates" since all the questions where the same with small differences
     per package.
       - Also fixed snort-inline templates, which were not correct (pointed
         to the wrong configuration file)
       - Update Spanish translation myself
   * Change the init.d script so it behaves like LSB demands:
       - Do not exit with error if there are no running instances and we
         try to stop
       - With 'status', exit with a 1/3 error based on the existence (or not
         of the pidfiles)
       - Dot not exit with error when trying to start an instance that is
         already started (use running() for that)
       - Check if the user is root before attempting to star/stop/restart
       - Adjust to LSB exit values (instead of just using always '1', use
         3-6 to indicate several different errors)
   * Lintian cleanup:
       - Move Homepage: from the description to a pseudo-header in
       - do not ignore distclean errors
       - remove call to dh_suidregister, we did not use it
       - add DEBHELPER token to snort-common.postinst
       - update config.guess and config.sub with automake's 1.7 versions
         (this is not done automatically in the package, however)
       - replace ${Source-Version} substvar with ${binary:version}
       - Move the configuration check of snort-common over to the config
         script and leave the postinst only to check the status of the
         init.d script. Also, modify the snort-common.postinst so it only
         does the configuration check if invoke-rc.d (if installed)
       - Fix 'malformed-title-in-templates' in all templates by removing
         the ending dot
       - Fix the 'malformed-prompt-in-templates' by adjusting the contents
         of all the titles affected
       - Shorten the length of the 'interface' template
       - Fix syntax on debian/NEWS
       - Remove empty dirs
 snort (2.7.0-7) unstable; urgency=low
   * Remove empty comment line in lsb headers
