  1998. * The "why the f*ck isn't the Internet 8-bit clean by now?" release.
  1999. * I think I've worked around the QP problems by forcing the body to not
  2000. be encoded and then munging the charset header to the one appropriate
  2001. for your locale. If your MTA doesn't like this, get a better MTA.
  2002. It's 2003 already. BTW, your MTA (or someone else's) may decide to
  2003. QP-encode the message anyway just to be friendly. (Closes: #198663)
  2004. * As a side effect while debugging, I also fixed a crasher where your
  2005. locale says you're in us-ascii but you decide to put 8-bit chars in
  2006. your headers just for entertainment value. Fallback on iso-8859-15
  2007. (aka Latin9 or "iso-8859-1 with the euro"), since that's as good a
  2008. guess as any these days. But you really should set your locale...
  2009. * The Overfiend Memorial Changelog Entry (aka your LART prophylactic):
  2010. Issue a stern warning if you try to file a report on a version of a
  2011. package that isn't yet in Debian *cough* X4.3. (Closes: #194615)
  2012. * Add option for "completely stupid smtphost mode" in the initial
  2013. config. This forces no-cc and sets smtphost to master.debian.org,
  2014. which should enable bug reporting from even the most basic system.
  2015. This path will also allow configuring the smtphost setting.

  2313. * Added kudos option. (Closes: #145250)
  2314. * The sid tag is now displayed (it was hidden before).
  2315. * Since the "kernel" metapackage is no longer offered (we offer
  2316. kernel-image instead), detecting the kernel with /proc/version is not
  2317. useful. Instead, file reports on kernel-image and choose the relevant

  2382. * Add support for "dependency packages" (i.e. packages that only exist
  2383. to provide dependencies that vary by platform, like gcc-defaults).
  2384. Note that this support is in addition to the existing virtual package
  2385. support. (Closes: #148602)

  2466. * First upload of reportbug 2 to unstable, since woody is now fully
  2467. frozen. Now requires Python 2.2. (Closes: #127716)
  2468. + This introduces a priority imbalance bug in unstable. Since Python
  2469. >= 2.2 will be the default Python for woody+1, this is a temporary
  2470. situation.
  2471. + Please see the changelog entries through 1.99.0 for changes from 1.50.
  2472. + Various items were marked as fixed in experimental.
  2473. (Closes: #113284, 135704)

  2475. * Use full path when calling debsums.
  2476. * Fix a buglet that left sendto unset.
  2477. * Fix a bug in the bug script when .reportbugrc is not empty.
  2478. * You now can only select each tag once. (Closes: #146156)
  2479. (Implemented in the text UI: ui.select_multiple)
  2480. * Menu prompts are now displayed when stdout is redirected.
  2481. (Closes: #145936)
  2482. * Check packages.debian.org in addition to the status database when
  2483. filing an ITP/RFP, as the status database may include false positives
  2484. when the package is built locally but not in Debian. (Closes: #146614)

  2489. * Ignore $TMPDIR if it isn't a valid directory. (Closes: #144472)
  2490. * Note that LC_CTYPE is overridden by LC_ALL in Locale settings section.
  2491. (The output was correct, as interpreted by libc.) (Closes: #141610)
  2492. * Added debsums support; enabled in the distributed reportbug.conf.

  2495. reportbug (1.99.15) experimental; urgency=low
  2496. * Integrated latest GNOME patch from Robin Putters.
  2497. + Minor reworking to change ui.EXCEPTION into EXCEPTION.
  2498. + Backed out the move of ui.handle_bts_query(). The GNOME frontend
  2499. will need its own query routine. For now, it raises NotImplemented.
  2500. * debconf-show output will be included if available. (See #142593)
  2501. * Cleaned up the address rewriting stuff.
  2502. * Massively sped up reportbug.get_package_info() by combining 2*DEPS
  2503. regexps into 2 regexps. This speeds up reporting a bug on "lsb" by
  2504. almost a minute on a PIII-450.
  2505. * Rewrote the option parser to use Optik. The main user-visible effect
  2506. is that reportbug --help is now a lot more useful.
  2507. * Defined a new ui entry point: select_multiple. It should allow the
  2508. user to select multiple, nonexclusive options and return a list of the
  2509. selected options. (Currently not implemented in any ui module, but
  2510. eventually will be used for tags.)

  2514. * You can now report bugs in "kernel-image" and it will show a list of
  2515. packages to choose from. (This is the normal virtual package
  2516. behavior, but I had to do some work to make it function because
  2517. kernel-image is in the menu.)

  2522. same (in this case, src_package is not set).
  2523. * Cleanup wording of the "new release" message.
  2524. * Add debian-policy to the virtual packages list. (Closes: #139970)

  2526. reportbug (1.99.12) experimental; urgency=low
  2527. * Query on source packages when searching for bugs in the BTS by
  2528. default. (Closes: #138928)
  2529. * Any editor that has "emacs" in its name will now jump to a line number;
  2530. this avoids needing to add emacs32 when it comes out...
  2531. * Broke up the bug handling script into a script and a presubj.
  2532. * Include user configuration file in reports on reportbug.
  2533. * Converted ui.select_options(message, 'yn'...) to
  2534. ui.yes_no(message...); this will help make non-text UIs cleaner, and
  2535. may eventually aid i18n support. (This also cleaned up a lot of
  2536. superfluous temporary variables in the code.)

  2563. reportbug (1.99.6) experimental; urgency=low
  2564. * reportbug 1.99.5 implemented the option of sending a report directly

  2566. mention it in the changelog. Mea culpa. (See #135704, #135710;
  2567. already closed.)
  2568. * Include GNOME interface patch from Robin Putters, and add some
  2569. work-arounds to the code to handle GNOME nicely.
  2570. * Ripped out the urllib code and replaced it with urllib2 code. This
  2571. makes proxy authentication work in some circumstances, but it still
  2572. needs additional work, particularly with bad proxy servers.

  2576. or the parallel config option.
  2577. * Added reportbug_exceptions.py for UI exception definitions.
  2578. * Cull duplicate entries in the dependency output when both a real
  2579. package and a virtual that is provided by that package exist.

  2939. * The "wait until a good version is in testing before breaking
  2940. everything horribly" release.
  2941. * User interface abstraction in progress... this version may be slightly
  2942. more unstable than usual. Currently installs reportbug_ui_text
  2943. (working) and reportbug_ui_newt (not fully working for reportbug,
  2944. but used by querybts).
  2945. * For kicks, try querybts --ui=text. If it breaks, both pieces are yours.
  2946. * Remove dependency on whiptail; all querybts dialogs are now handled by
  2947. python-newt.
  2948. * Improvements in screen handling in querybts. This should resolve the
  2949. remaining issues with #82895. (Closes: #82895)
  2950. * Fix skip command in the reportbug browser when there is more than one
  2951. page of bugs in the same category. (Closes: #84327)
  2952. * Looking at individual bug reports in reportbug now works a bit
  2953. differently; you are now prompted if you want to give more info and
  2954. can launch a browser to look at that bug. (To put it another way: the
  2955. functionality of querybts is merged in, even in text mode. UI
  2956. abstraction is our friend.) Downside: a few more keypresses to look
  2957. at lots of reports.
  2958. * You can now quit while looking at a report in querybts. (Closes: #62614)
  2959. * redisplay now shows the last screenful, not just min(last_screenful,
  2960. last_category). Someone complained about this in an already-closed
  2961. report (in addition to the main issue, which was resolved elsewhere).
  2962. * Don't clear the screen in querybts if it exits without an exception.
  2963. * pgp/gpg signing now omits the pseudoheaders from the signed section.
  2964. * Report numbers with a leading # now really work in querybts. Note that
  2965. you'll have to escape (or quote) the # in many shells...
  2966. * Remove some cruft from the source tree.
  2967. * Incorporated support for the Progeny BTS. Queries are not available
  2968. (I have not written a GNATS query module), but report submission is.
  2969. * -C command line option incorporated to specify the class of the report
  2970. for gnats servers.
  2971. * -S command line option allows either gnats or debbugs severities.
  2972. These are mapped transparently to the severity appropriate for the
  2973. specified BTS (i.e. wishlist on debbugs becomes non-critical for
  2974. gnats; non-critical for gnats becomes normal for Debian).
  2975. * The --bts option now overrides whatever's detected from the package
  2976. info. However, bts options in the rc files will not override that
  2977. setting. This seems like a reasonable default so Origin makes sense
  2978. on Debian forks, who can set /etc/reportbug.conf to point to their BTS.
  2979. * Updated TODO list to add some things that have been kicking around in
  2980. my head.
  2981. * If multiple packages match a file requested by the -f option, list the
  2982. first 3 matching files for each package.
  2983. * Old --quiet is now --report-quiet; removed short option.
  2984. * New --quiet suppresses diagnostic output to stderr; nothing except
  2985. prompts should be written to the screen by reportbug when this flag is
  2986. specified. Primarily for UI testing.
  2987. * reportbug now has special prompt support for particular packages.
  2988. This is particularly useful with pseudopackages like wnpp, wherein the
  2989. severity of the report should be based on the subject (and the subject
  2990. should include certain keywords). (Note that this is different from
  2991. the "included in package" prompt support, which has been supported for
  2992. some time.) Try reporting a wnpp bug to see what it does... who
  2993. knows, you may even like it ;-)
  2994. * Updated priority to 'standard'.

  3001. (Closes: #83552)
  3002. * Somewhat better handling of bogus $http_proxy settings. reportbug and
  3003. querybts still fail with an exception, but it gives a hint why. Also
  3004. document the syntax even more explicitly in the man pages. (Closes: #83301)
  3005. * You can now do 'querybts #82843' (allowing a leading #). (Closes: #82843)

  3007. instead of our own internal logic. (Closes: #83545)

  3012. (Closes: #82791, #48328)
  3013. * reportbug now runs if readline cannot be imported.
  3014. * Tab-completion is now supported at some prompts if the readline module

  3016. prompt at the moment. (Closes: #81496, #82843)
  3017. * Leading and trailing spaces on input are now stripped. This shouldn't

  3193. will (hopefully) help the maintainer track down the bug more easily.
  3194. It uses a file /usr/share/doc/{package}/Debian.bugtemplate, which
  3195. should contain some special instructions for the user. A lame example
  3196. of this template appears in this package. (Closes: #58816)

  3201. LDAP database. (Closes: #57711)
  3202. * Added build dependency; updated to Standards Version 3.1.1.0

  3495. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Sun, 4 Jul 1999 12:18:32 -0500
  3496. reportbug (0.12) unstable; urgency=high
  3497. * Changed rfcdatestr() call to properly reference the reportbug module.
  3498. (Closes: #40713)
  3499. * Changed dependency back to python-base (>= 1.5.2-4).
  3500. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Sun, 4 Jul 1999 00:10:39 -0500
  3501. reportbug (0.11) unstable; urgency=low
  3502. * Fixed man page to document --no-bts-query (-b).
  3503. * Dependency modified until unstable picks up the python 1.5.2-4 upload
  3504. for non-PowerPC architectures; avoid using versioned dependencies on
  3505. packages obsoleted by 1.5.2-4 to make Gregor's life easier.
  3506. * Alias sys.stderr.write() -> ewrite()
  3507. * No greportbug yet (sorry X fans).
  3508. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Wed, 30 Jun 1999 01:02:04 -0500
  3509. reportbug (0.10) unstable; urgency=low
  3510. * Changed several popen() calls to use the 'commands' module;
  3511. makes for much cleaner code.
  3512. * Changed dependency to "python-base (>= 1.5.2-4)"; avoids dependencies
  3513. on obsolete python-{misc,net}.
  3514. * If the package was found using --filename (-f), include that filename
  3515. in the report header.
  3516. * Properly handle the case where some, but not all, conffiles have been
  3517. removed.
  3518. * List outstanding bug reports on the package to help maintain sanity
  3519. of developers; new option --no-bts-query (-b) added for offline use.
  3520. (Closes: #40115)
  3521. * Modularized somewhat in preparation for greportbug (hopefully in 0.11).
  3522. + Common functions in /usr/lib/reportbug/*.py:
  3523. - reportbug.py: local queries, resolving paths, outputting template
  3524. reports, etc.
  3525. - debianbts.py: querying the BTS proper (nifty HTML parser).
  3526. [These are compiled by the postinst.]
  3527. + user interfaces import these modules as needed

  3529. reportbug (0.9) unstable; urgency=low
  3530. * You can now re-edit the bug report at the send-confirmation prompt.
  3531. * --filename (-f) now searches the path first (to force using a file in
  3532. the current directory, use './name').
  3533. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Tue, 15 Jun 1999 02:46:31 -0500
  3534. reportbug (0.8) unstable; urgency=low
  3535. * Add menu entry, since it can be run with no arguments.
  3536. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Mon, 14 Jun 1999 00:54:17 -0500
  3537. reportbug (0.7) unstable; urgency=low
  3538. * Fix Bug#38862: reportbug does not (correctly) honour the -p option.
  3539. * Close #38691; the description problem was addressed in reportbug 0.4.
  3540. * Merged all the "NameError: mua" bugs together in the BTS.
  3541. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Sat, 5 Jun 1999 20:39:20 -0500
  3542. reportbug (0.6.1) unstable; urgency=low
  3543. * Automate version number handling, based on debian/changelog
  3544. (0.6 called itself 0.5). 0.6 is withdrawn accordingly.
  3545. * The "NameError: mua" bug was fixed in 0.5; relevant bug reports have
  3546. been closed.
  3547. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Mon, 31 May 1999 16:13:11 -0500
  3548. reportbug (0.6) unstable; urgency=medium
  3549. * You can now abbreviate bug severity levels (to first letter).
  3550. Part of bug #38628 (the rest is reassigned to python-base).
  3551. * Changed "file.close()" to "pipe.close()" at line 450; may fix bug
  3552. #38637 (only affects people without /etc/debian_version).
  3553. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Mon, 31 May 1999 15:11:00 -0500
  3554. reportbug (0.5) unstable; urgency=medium
  3555. * Fixed bug #38566 (Check $DEBEMAIL before $EMAIL; etc.) Summary:
  3556. . $DEBEMAIL will be used before $EMAIL for an address (i.e. x@y.org)
  3557. . $DEBNAME or $NAME will be used before $USERNAME for the "real name"
  3558. part of the address. If neither is available, will use the real
  3559. name from /etc/passwd.
  3560. * Quoting of real names is now done in accordance with RFC 822.
  3561. * Fixed bug that occurred if you didn't specify an MUA.

  3563. reportbug (0.4) unstable; urgency=low
  3564. * Rearranged the code so options are processed before figuring out your
  3565. email address.
  3566. * Fixed bug #38541 (reportbug fails calling exim's /usr/sbin/sendmail).
  3567. * Corollary: if your /usr/sbin/sendmail fails, the bug report will be
  3568. saved as if you had no MTA.
  3569. * Don't warn about sending configuration files if it's only because a
  3570. conffile has been removed.
  3571. * --filename (-f) option now handles files with symbolic links in their
  3572. pathnames. (cfr. #23821 [bug])
  3573. * --mutt (-M) option allows you to use mutt instead of an editor to file
  3574. bug reports. (cfr. #10837 [bug])
  3575. * --af (-a) is similar, but uses the af mail reader.
  3576. * --nmh and --mh (-n) is also similar, but uses the "comp" command from
  3577. mh/nmh.
  3578. * --mua allows you to do this with any mail reader that can edit draft
  3579. messages specified on the command line. (However, send me anything
  3580. needed for other editors, please!)
  3581. * New option: --version.

  3583. reportbug (0.3) unstable; urgency=low
  3584. * Fixed a small typo in the copyright.
  3585. * Now includes whatever your system thinks the date is in the bug
  3586. report; may be helpful if you save the bug report and email it later.
  3587. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Sun, 16 May 1999 00:02:58 -0500
  3588. reportbug (0.2) unstable; urgency=low
  3589. * Changed virtual package date format to YYYY-MM-DD; per request from
  3590. Jim Van Zandt on debian-devel.
  3591. * Added a message to the report if modified configuration files were
  3592. omitted at the user's request.
  3593. * It's now always verbose; useful on slower systems (so you can tell
  3594. it's actually working).
  3595. * A few typo fixes.
  3596. -- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Sat, 15 May 1999 09:14:25 -0500
