lintian (2.2.10ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian (LP: #369511). Remaining changes:
    - Don't complain about `dist-packages' in /usr/lib/python*.

lintian (2.2.10) unstable; urgency=low

  The "do something useful with tar errors, plus bug fixes" release.

  * Summary of tag changes:
    + Added:
      - ancient-autotools-helper-file
      - tar-errors-from-control
      - tar-errors-from-data
      - tar-errors-from-source
    + Removed:
      - desktop-mimetype-without-update-call
      - package-uses-breaks

  * checks/conffiles:
    + [RA] Fix a false negative in duplicate-conffile by improving
      normalization of conffiles before comparing and restructure the
      check a bit.  Patch from Raphael Geissert.
  * checks/cruft{,.desc}:
    + [RA] Split outdated-autotools-helper-file into ancient- and
      outdated-, preserving the 2004 date for ancient and checking for at
      least June of 2006 for outdated.  The latter is needed for AVR32.
      Thanks, Bradley Smith.  (Closes: #525280)
    + [RA] Set certainty for ancient- and outdated-autotools-helper-file
      to possible instead of certain.  Some packages contain extra copies
      that aren't used during the Debian package build.
    + [RA] Document that cdbs still requires the autotools-dev build
      dependency to update config.{sub,guess} at build time.
    + [RA] Report errors from tar or dpkg-source when listing or unpacking
      the source package, skipping and suppressing some harmless errors.
  * checks/deb-format{,.desc}:
    + [RA] Report tar errors from listing or unpacking the control or data
      members of the package, suppressing uninteresting errors or errors
      that are caught some other way.  (Closes: #367327)
    + [CW] Ubuntu's archive allows packages whose data members are
      compressed with lzma.
  * checks/etcfiles.desc:
    + [RA] Remove unused Needs-Info: etcfiles.  Thanks, Raphael Geissert.
  * checks/fields{,.desc}:
    + [RA] Remove package-uses-breaks.  dpkg in stable now supports it.
      Thanks, Julian Andres Klode.  (Closes: #522660)
    + [RA] Fix Needs-Info.  Thanks, Raphael Geissert.
  * checks/files{,.desc}
    + [ADB] Anchor the regular expression for the "gz-file-not-gzip" tag so
      that files with names that contain ".gz" but do not end in that string
      are not flagged.  Patch by Raphael Geissert.  (Closes: #523352)
    + [RA] Remove desc for removed possible-name-space-pollution tag.
  * checks/manpages.desc:
    + [RA] Remove desc for removed no-manpage-in-correct-directory tag.
  * checks/menu-format{,.desc}:
    + [RA] Remove desktop-mimetype-without-update-call.  This is now
      handled by triggers.  Thanks, Chow Loong Jin.  (Closes: #525133)
    + [RA] Remove desc for removed menu-item-adds-to-root-menu tag.
  * checks/patch-systems.desc:
    + [RA] Mention that empty dpatch patch lists or quilt series files
      will disappear in a non-native source package and hence produce the
      warning about a missing file.  (Closes: #525005)
  * checks/scripts{,.desc}:
    + [RA] Handle command delimiters, $() expressions, and braces and
      parentheses in the checks for correct diversion handling.  Patch
      from Raphael Geissert.  (Closes: #523708)
    + [RA] Clarify the php-script-but-no-phpX-cli-dep description to
      explain why it warns about a php4-cli dependency.  (Closes: #525484)
    + [RA] Add jruby1.2 and allow an unversioned jruby reference.  Thanks,
      Sebastien Delafond.  (Closes: #523001)
  * checks/shared-libs{,.desc}:
    + [RA] Strip trailing slashes from the libdir path in *.la files
      before checking it for correctness.  Thanks, Patrick Matthäi.
      (Closes: #524228)
    + [RA] Special-case *.la files for Python modules installed in
      /usr/share/pyshared, since they're moved during install.  Thanks,
      Jonas Smedegaard.  (Closes: #522623)
    + [RA] Requires unpack level 2 to read the *.la files.
  * checks/standards-version.desc:
    + [ADB] Fix a couple of spelling mistakes ("verison" -> "version").
      Thanks, Guillaume Delacour.  (Closes: #522643)

  * collection/file-info:
    + [ADB] Call "file" with "--" to ensure that any filenames in the package
      that start with "-" aren't interpreted as options to "file".  Thanks,
      Trent W. Buck.  (Closes: #523408)
  * collection/strings:
    + [RA] Make strings gathering on ELF binaries robust against file
      names containing "ELF" or a colon.  Patch from Raphael Geissert.

  * doc/desc-files:
    + [ADB] Mention the new Standards-Version field available for tests.
      Patch by Raphael Geissert.

  * frontend/lintian:
    + [RA] Stop reporting $! when unpack scripts fail.  It will almost
      never contain anything useful.
    + [RA] Move override parsing to the Tags module.  Patch from Raphael
      Geissert.

  * lib/Lintian/Collect/Binary.pm:
    + [CW] Add missing 'use Parse::DebianChangelog'.
  * lib/Lintian/Output.pm:
    + [RA] With --color=html, display the HTML rendering of the long tag
      description rather than the text version and escape HTML
      metacharacters in the tag information.  Patch from Raphael Geissert.
      (Closes: #522527)
  * lib/Lintian/Relation.pm:
    + [ADB] Fix a spelling mistake ("verison" -> "version").  Thanks,
      Guillaume Delacour.
  * lib/Spelling.pm:
    + [RA] Add spelling correction for "verison".
  * lib/Tags.pm:
    + [RA] Add a function to parse overrides, moved from frontend/lintian.
      Patch from Raphael Geissert.

  * t/runtests:
    + [ADB] Allow a default Policy version to be specified in template files.
      This avoids the need to update every test each time a new Policy version
      is released, unless one specifically wishes to keep a particular test
      using an older version.  Patch by Raphael Geissert.
    + [ADB] Use extended regular expressions in "post_test" sed scripts.
      Patch by Raphael Geissert.
  * t/tests/README:
    + [ADB] Mention the new Standards-Version field available for tests.
      Patch by Raphael Geissert.

  * unpack/unpack-binpkg-l1:
    + [RA] Save control unpack errors in control-errors, control listing
      errors in control-index-errors, and package listing errors in
      index-errors for later processing by deb-format.  (Closes: #522530)
  * unpack/unpack-binpkg-l2:
    + [RA] Save data unpack errors in unpacked-errors for later processing
      by deb-format.
  * unpack/unpack-srcpkg-l1:
    + [RA] Save source listing errors in index-errors for later processing
      by cruft.  Don't fail the unpack if tar exits with non-zero status.
      star-created archives will cause tar to blow up, but the listing
      and unpacking still works.
  * unpack/unpack-srcpkg-l2:
    + [RA] Save source unpack errors in unpacked-errors for later
      processing by cruft.
