lintian (2.5.6) unstable; urgency=low

  * checks/*:
    + [NT] Simplified some bit operations done on file permissions.
  * checks/binaries:
    + [NT] Fix false-negative missing-dependency-on-phpapi when the
      binary included a "SOVERSION" in its name.  Thanks to Ondřej
      Surý for the report.  (Closes: #662936)
  * checks/changelog-file:
    + [NT] Do not emit "no-upstream-changelog" for transitional
      packages.  Thanks to Paul Wise for the report.
      (Closes: #660076)
  * checks/cruft:
    + [NT] Added missing "unless" in the code.  Fixes false
      positive "source-contains-waf-binary".  Thanks to
      Dmitrijs Ledkovs for the report.  (Closes: #661561)
  * checks/debhelper:
    + [NT] Fix FP executable-debhelper-file-without-being-executable
      emitted for directories.  Thanks to Felix Geyer for the report
      and the patch.  (Closes: #663447)
  * checks/files.desc:
    + [NT] Fix a typo in a tag description.  Thanks to Ludovic
      Rousseau for spotting it.  (Closes: #663759)
  * checks/scripts:
    + [NT] Allow fontforge-nox as (alternative) provider for the
      fontforge interpreter.  Thanks to Martin Erik Werner for
      the report.  (Closes: #661363)
    + [NT] Move %interpreters map to a separate data file.
  * checks/source-copyright.desc:
    + [NT] Update references for copyright-format checks.  Thanks
      to Thijs Kinkhorst for the report and the patch.
      (Closes: #661778)
    + [NT] Added trailing slash to copyright-format URLs in tag
      descriptions for consistency with the policy.

  * collection/*:
    + [NT] Removed assumption that "cwd" is the same as the
      directory for the package being examined.
  * collection/java-info:
    + [NT] Added missing "use Util".
  * collection/scripts:
    + [NT] Use "fail" from Util.pm rather than using an embedded
  * collection/strings:
    + [NT] Use Lintian::Collect to find ELF files.

  * data/scripts/interpreters:
    + [NT] New file.

  * frontend/lintian:
    + [NT] Pass directory of the package to the collections.

  * lib/Lintian/Check.pm:
    + [NT] Fixed false positive "*-address-malformed" if the local
      part of the email was "0".  Thanks to Christopher Vollick for
      the report.  (Closes: #663659)
  * lib/Lintian/Tag/Info.pm:
    + [NT] Fixed issue where "Experimental: no" was handled as a
      "yes" when generating a tag description.
  * lib/Util.pm:
    + [NT] If no locale can be found, just set LC_ALL to en_US.UTF-8.
      This fixes an issue with Lintian in backports when only
      locales-all is installed.  Thanks to Peter Palfrader for the
      report.  (Closes: #663459)

  * private/runtests:
    + [NT] Support using en_US.UTF-8 from locales-all, when that is
      available.  This allows locales-all to be used as a substitute
      for locales when compiling Lintian on Squeeze.

  * reporting/harness:
    + [NT] Corrected inverted logic when checking for dry-run.
