  2984. reportbug (1.99.17) unstable; urgency=low
  2985. * First upload of reportbug 2 to unstable, since woody is now fully
  2986. frozen. Now requires Python 2.2. (Closes: #127716)
  2987. + This introduces a priority imbalance bug in unstable. Since Python
  2988. >= 2.2 will be the default Python for woody+1, this is a temporary
  2989. situation.
  2990. + Please see the changelog entries through 1.99.0 for changes from 1.50.
  2991. + Various items were marked as fixed in experimental.
  2992. (Closes: #113284, 135704)
  2993. * Removed debugging info from output when using debsums.
  2994. * Use full path when calling debsums.
  2995. * Fix a buglet that left sendto unset.
  2996. * Fix a bug in the bug script when .reportbugrc is not empty.
  2997. * You now can only select each tag once. (Closes: #146156)
  2998. (Implemented in the text UI: ui.select_multiple)
  2999. * Menu prompts are now displayed when stdout is redirected.
  3000. (Closes: #145936)
  3001. * Check packages.debian.org in addition to the status database when
  3002. filing an ITP/RFP, as the status database may include false positives
  3003. when the package is built locally but not in Debian. (Closes: #146614)

  3008. * Ignore $TMPDIR if it isn't a valid directory. (Closes: #144472)
  3009. * Note that LC_CTYPE is overridden by LC_ALL in Locale settings section.
  3010. (The output was correct, as interpreted by libc.) (Closes: #141610)
  3011. * Added debsums support; enabled in the distributed reportbug.conf.
  3012. (Closes: #142334)

  3014. reportbug (1.99.15) experimental; urgency=low
  3015. * Integrated latest GNOME patch from Robin Putters.
  3016. + Minor reworking to change ui.EXCEPTION into EXCEPTION.
  3017. + Backed out the move of ui.handle_bts_query(). The GNOME frontend
  3018. will need its own query routine. For now, it raises NotImplemented.
  3019. * debconf-show output will be included if available. (See #142593)
  3020. * Cleaned up the address rewriting stuff.
  3021. * Massively sped up reportbug.get_package_info() by combining 2*DEPS
  3022. regexps into 2 regexps. This speeds up reporting a bug on "lsb" by
  3023. almost a minute on a PIII-450.
  3024. * Rewrote the option parser to use Optik. The main user-visible effect
  3025. is that reportbug --help is now a lot more useful.
  3026. * Defined a new ui entry point: select_multiple. It should allow the
  3027. user to select multiple, nonexclusive options and return a list of the
  3028. selected options. (Currently not implemented in any ui module, but
  3029. eventually will be used for tags.)

  3032. * Updates from 1.50
  3033. * You can now report bugs in "kernel-image" and it will show a list of
  3034. packages to choose from. (This is the normal virtual package
  3035. behavior, but I had to do some work to make it function because
  3036. kernel-image is in the menu.)
  3037. * Minor code cleanups to get some lines < 80 chars.

  3041. same (in this case, src_package is not set).
  3042. * Cleanup wording of the "new release" message.
  3043. * Add debian-policy to the virtual packages list. (Closes: #139970)

  3045. reportbug (1.99.12) experimental; urgency=low
  3046. * Query on source packages when searching for bugs in the BTS by
  3047. default. (Closes: #138928)
  3048. * Any editor that has "emacs" in its name will now jump to a line number;
  3049. this avoids needing to add emacs32 when it comes out...
  3050. * Broke up the bug handling script into a script and a presubj.
  3051. * Include user configuration file in reports on reportbug.
  3052. * Converted ui.select_options(message, 'yn'...) to
  3053. ui.yes_no(message...); this will help make non-text UIs cleaner, and
  3054. may eventually aid i18n support. (This also cleaned up a lot of
  3055. superfluous temporary variables in the code.)

  3082. reportbug (1.99.6) experimental; urgency=low
  3083. * reportbug 1.99.5 implemented the option of sending a report directly
  3084. to the maintainer if the package was not found in the BTS; I forgot to
  3085. mention it in the changelog. Mea culpa. (See #135704, #135710;
  3086. already closed.)
  3087. * Include GNOME interface patch from Robin Putters, and add some
  3088. work-arounds to the code to handle GNOME nicely.
  3089. * Ripped out the urllib code and replaced it with urllib2 code. This
  3090. makes proxy authentication work in some circumstances, but it still
  3091. needs additional work, particularly with bad proxy servers.

  3096. * Added reportbug_exceptions.py for UI exception definitions.
  3097. * Cull duplicate entries in the dependency output when both a real
  3098. package and a virtual that is provided by that package exist.
  3099. (e.g. packages with exim | mail-transport-agent no longer list exim
  3100. twice if you have it installed.)

  3120. * Modules moved to /usr/share/reportbug to better comport with Debian's
  3121. Python policy.
  3122. * Cleaned up installation of Python modules.
  3123. * Added operating mode support (expert/novice/standard). (Closes: #121434)

  3131. * WNPP support now works with source and unknown packages. (Closes: #131765)
  3132. * No longer prompt when the subject was generated by the WNPP support.
  3133. (Closes: #131100)
  3134. * Silly me forgot that string.strip() gets rid of leading whitespace, so
  3135. my implementation of #131472 didn't work. Now it does, and it's been
  3136. tested. (Closes: #131472)
  3137. * The mutt message has been defanged (for most, at least). Subsequent
  3138. reports of this issue will be merged with #131100. You have been warned.

  3143. * Use $EDITOR in preference to $VISUAL. (Closes: #131610)
  3144. This makes reportbug act like the man page claims it does.
  3145. * Back off a bit on #131100, due to popular demand. Just checking to
  3146. see if anyone is actually using these packages...
  3147. * Fix WNPP support to use source packages, not binary packages, when

  3156. rfc822.quote() doesn't seem to work right. (Closes: #127637)
  3157. * Add message warning certain users not to attach stuff in external
  3158. programs until debbugs is fixed to handle MIME correctly, at which
  3159. time this message will look incredibly stupid. "Fixes" my part of
  3160. #131100 ("Chris should never have let people edit messages in programs

  3460. * User interface abstraction in progress... this version may be slightly
  3461. more unstable than usual. Currently installs reportbug_ui_text
  3462. (working) and reportbug_ui_newt (not fully working for reportbug,
  3463. but used by querybts).
  3464. * For kicks, try querybts --ui=text. If it breaks, both pieces are yours.
  3465. * Remove dependency on whiptail; all querybts dialogs are now handled by
  3466. python-newt.
  3467. * Improvements in screen handling in querybts. This should resolve the
  3468. remaining issues with #82895. (Closes: #82895)
  3469. * Fix skip command in the reportbug browser when there is more than one
  3470. page of bugs in the same category. (Closes: #84327)
  3471. * Looking at individual bug reports in reportbug now works a bit
  3472. differently; you are now prompted if you want to give more info and
  3473. can launch a browser to look at that bug. (To put it another way: the
  3474. functionality of querybts is merged in, even in text mode. UI
  3475. abstraction is our friend.) Downside: a few more keypresses to look
  3476. at lots of reports.
  3477. * You can now quit while looking at a report in querybts. (Closes: #62614)
  3478. * redisplay now shows the last screenful, not just min(last_screenful,
  3479. last_category). Someone complained about this in an already-closed
  3480. report (in addition to the main issue, which was resolved elsewhere).
  3481. * Don't clear the screen in querybts if it exits without an exception.
  3482. * pgp/gpg signing now omits the pseudoheaders from the signed section.
  3483. * Report numbers with a leading # now really work in querybts. Note that
  3484. you'll have to escape (or quote) the # in many shells...
  3485. * Remove some cruft from the source tree.
  3486. * Incorporated support for the Progeny BTS. Queries are not available
  3487. (I have not written a GNATS query module), but report submission is.
  3488. * -C command line option incorporated to specify the class of the report
  3489. for gnats servers.
  3490. * -S command line option allows either gnats or debbugs severities.
  3491. These are mapped transparently to the severity appropriate for the
  3492. specified BTS (i.e. wishlist on debbugs becomes non-critical for
  3493. gnats; non-critical for gnats becomes normal for Debian).
  3494. * The --bts option now overrides whatever's detected from the package
  3495. info. However, bts options in the rc files will not override that
  3496. setting. This seems like a reasonable default so Origin makes sense
  3497. on Debian forks, who can set /etc/reportbug.conf to point to their BTS.
  3498. * Updated TODO list to add some things that have been kicking around in
  3499. my head.
  3500. * If multiple packages match a file requested by the -f option, list the
  3501. first 3 matching files for each package.
  3502. * Old --quiet is now --report-quiet; removed short option.
  3503. * New --quiet suppresses diagnostic output to stderr; nothing except
  3504. prompts should be written to the screen by reportbug when this flag is
  3505. specified. Primarily for UI testing.
  3506. * reportbug now has special prompt support for particular packages.
  3507. This is particularly useful with pseudopackages like wnpp, wherein the
  3508. severity of the report should be based on the subject (and the subject
  3509. should include certain keywords). (Note that this is different from
  3510. the "included in package" prompt support, which has been supported for
  3511. some time.) Try reporting a wnpp bug to see what it does... who
  3512. knows, you may even like it ;-)

  3852. merge the results of a query for "package" and the formatted package
  3853. name. [This only affects the TDYC server at present, since it's the
  3854. only one that uses these query strings.] (Closes: #47396)
  3855. * A preliminary console BTS browser has been written; however, I'm
  3856. waiting on the new newt packages to move out of Incoming before
  3857. including it. (Does anyone know how/if it's possible to get a newt
  3858. text box to scroll horizontally? That's the biggest remaining
  3859. obstacle to having a good interface.)

  3881. this feature so far. This helps ensure that you are aware of the current
  3882. state of the BTS. (Further addresses #40115) LDAP access to Debian
  3883. seems faster, particularly for getting the text of reports.
  3884. * Modules are now installed in /usr/lib/site-python (version-independent
  3885. Python module directory in Debian). This way other packages can use
  3886. them (I think the API is more-or-less stable).
  3887. * Proper message if you query a specific report and it's not available.

  3931. (Closes: #43868)
