python-apt (0.8.5~ubuntu1) quantal-proposed; urgency=low

  * Merge from unreleased Debian branch, remaining changes:
    - drop recommends on python2.6
    - build with COMPAT_0_7, which might still be needed by some code in the
      Ubuntu archive.  We need to scan the archive for this, add liberal
      Breaks, and analyze the dist-upgrader case before disabling.
  * Revert change from lp:~ev/python-apt/dont-leak-fds; as discussed on IRC
    during the Python3 porting sprint, the cure here is worse than the

python-apt (0.8.5) UNRELEASED; urgency=low

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * python/cache.cc:
    - ensure that pkgApplyStatus is called when the cache is opened
      (thanks to Sebastian Heinlein for finding this bug), LP: #659438

  [ Stéphane Graber ]
  * data/templates/Ubuntu.info.in:
    - add quantal

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Don't leak file descriptors.
  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * utils/get_ubuntu_mirrors_from_lp.py: move this script to python3
  * pre-build.sh: call dpkg-checkbuilddeps with the list of our 
    source-build-dependencies; this may save someone else an hour down the
    line scratching their head over gratuitous test-suite failures...
  [ Sebastian Heinlein ]
  * lp:~glatzor/python-apt/auth:
    - this is a port of the software-properties AptAuth module to python-apt
      with some cleanups. It provides a wrapper API for the apt-key command

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * aptsources/*.py, setup.py: Make aptsources modules work directly in
    either Python 2 or 3, and exclude the "future" 2to3 fixer so that 2to3
    doesn't need to modify them.  This makes life a little easier for the
    strange tricks update-manager plays with its dist-upgrader tarball.
