* The "why the f*ck isn't the Internet 8-bit clean by now?" release.
* I think I've worked around the QP problems by forcing the body to not
be encoded and then munging the charset header to the one appropriate
for your locale. If your MTA doesn't like this, get a better MTA.
It's 2003 already. BTW, your MTA (or someone else's) may decide to
QP-encode the message anyway just to be friendly. (Closes: #198663)
* As a side effect while debugging, I also fixed a crasher where your
locale says you're in us-ascii but you decide to put 8-bit chars in
your headers just for entertainment value. Fallback on iso-8859-15
(aka Latin9 or "iso-8859-1 with the euro"), since that's as good a
guess as any these days. But you really should set your locale...

Issue a stern warning if you try to file a report on a version of a

* If you want reportbug 2 in testing, see #162467. (Note my kindness in
providing a patch for the override file.)
* Correct variable name in attaching/including files from menu.
(Closes: #163125)
* I think #163121 and #161767 are both proxy issues; someone who uses
proxies will have to figure them out...

reportbug (1.99.57) unstable; urgency=low

* Add pattern matching support for searching bugs. Many, many thanks to
Ha Shao for the patch! (Closes: #109674)
* Better handling for 8-bit characters in headers. (Closes: #156074)
* Now defaults to using your locale's character set as the character set
of the outgoing message.
* Support MIME attachments. (Closes: #146329)
(This may confuse some MUAs, although at least mutt should handle it.)
* Support gzip-encoded HTTP. Thanks to Bastian Kleineidam for the
patch. (Closes: #160310)
I added deflate (zlib) support and code to send the headers to request
compressed pages by default (although Apache at bugs.debian.org
doesn't yet support this).

reportbug (1.99.50) unstable; urgency=low
* Despite severity inflation, fix relatively minor bug in the
metapackage code. (Free hint: if something doesn't work with one
particular command line option, that is not a GRAVE bug. Perhaps you
should run in novice mode from now on...) (Closes: #155686)

* Retain case of character in reportbug_ui_text.select_options() help.
* In MODE_NOVICE, helpfully provide a prompt where you are supposed to
type the bug text in the editor. This prompt is stripped from the
message after editing.
* Cleaned up external script support.

* aka The "Why doesn't gnome-terminal 2 show 8-bit characters?" release.
* Massively clean up the gpg/pgp code by using the miracle of pipes.
Also make it work again in the process. (Closes: #151723)
* A vague implementation of GNUS support in reportbug, courtesy of
Tollef Fog Heen - much appreciated! (Closes: #128193)
(Probably doesn't cope with --header or --list-cc yet.)
* Only include the signature in kudos if options.mua is empty.
* Move the signing code so bailing out in it won't send bogus empty
messages to your MTA.

reportbug (1.99.44) unstable; urgency=low
* The Toronto Minus 2 release.
* Added kudos option. (Closes: #145250)
* The sid tag is now displayed (it was hidden before).
* Since the "kernel" metapackage is no longer offered (we offer
kernel-image instead), detecting the kernel with /proc/version is not
useful. Instead, file reports on kernel-image and choose the relevant
kernel on your system when prompted. (Closes: #146123)

reportbug (1.99.32) unstable; urgency=low
* Now offer configuration of the offline setting in --configure.
* Include all the operating modes in --configure.
* Clean up the depends code (pass around a list instead of a silly string).
* Add support for "dependency packages" (i.e. packages that only exist
to provide dependencies that vary by platform, like gcc-defaults).
Note that this support is in addition to the existing virtual package
support. (Closes: #148602)
ATM gcc-defaults is the only such package I know about; please let me
know any others by filing a wishlist bug.
* Cache get_package_status() results so we don't query multiple times on
the same package.

* Added "advanced" mode, which is like "standard" but not. (The main
difference is that "standard" now ignores incoming, for better or for
worse.)

* Ignore mua setting if --template is specified. (Closes: #147343)
* Extra logic to make 'none' and 'done' work properly in
ui.select_multiple. (Closes: #147339)

about it.

a package name for filing a report. (--file is probably more fun to
use in the general case, though.) (Closes: #147139)

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

* Note that LC_CTYPE is overridden by LC_ALL in Locale settings section.
(The output was correct, as interpreted by libc.) (Closes: #141610)

reportbug (1.99.15) experimental; urgency=low
* Integrated latest GNOME patch from Robin Putters.
+ Minor reworking to change ui.EXCEPTION into EXCEPTION.
+ Backed out the move of ui.handle_bts_query(). The GNOME frontend
will need its own query routine. For now, it raises NotImplemented.
* debconf-show output will be included if available. (See #142593)
* Cleaned up the address rewriting stuff.
* Massively sped up reportbug.get_package_info() by combining 2*DEPS
regexps into 2 regexps. This speeds up reporting a bug on "lsb" by
almost a minute on a PIII-450.
* Rewrote the option parser to use Optik. The main user-visible effect
is that reportbug --help is now a lot more useful.
* Defined a new ui entry point: select_multiple. It should allow the
user to select multiple, nonexclusive options and return a list of the
selected options. (Currently not implemented in any ui module, but
eventually will be used for tags.)
-- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Sun, 21 Apr 2002 04:26:07 -0500
reportbug (1.99.14) experimental; urgency=low
* Updates from 1.50
* You can now report bugs in "kernel-image" and it will show a list of
packages to choose from. (This is the normal virtual package
behavior, but I had to do some work to make it function because
kernel-image is in the menu.)
* Minor code cleanups to get some lines < 80 chars.
-- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Fri, 5 Apr 2002 08:47:13 -0600
reportbug (1.99.13) experimental; urgency=low
* Fix source queries when the source package and binary package are the
same (in this case, src_package is not set).
* Cleanup wording of the "new release" message.
* Add debian-policy to the virtual packages list. (Closes: #139970)
-- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Mon, 1 Apr 2002 22:35:35 -0600
reportbug (1.99.12) experimental; urgency=low
* Query on source packages when searching for bugs in the BTS by
default. (Closes: #138928)
* Any editor that has "emacs" in its name will now jump to a line number;
this avoids needing to add emacs32 when it comes out...
* Broke up the bug handling script into a script and a presubj.
* Include user configuration file in reports on reportbug.
* Converted ui.select_options(message, 'yn'...) to
ui.yes_no(message...); this will help make non-text UIs cleaner, and
may eventually aid i18n support. (This also cleaned up a lot of
superfluous temporary variables in the code.)

-- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Sat, 9 Mar 2002 22:09:02 -0600
reportbug (1.99.6) experimental; urgency=low
* reportbug 1.99.5 implemented the option of sending a report directly
to the maintainer if the package was not found in the BTS; I forgot to
mention it in the changelog. Mea culpa. (See #135704, #135710;
already closed.)
* Include GNOME interface patch from Robin Putters, and add some
work-arounds to the code to handle GNOME nicely.
* Ripped out the urllib code and replaced it with urllib2 code. This

reportbug (1.99.5) experimental; urgency=low
* Checking for new versions can be disabled using --no-check-available
or the parallel config option.
* Added reportbug_exceptions.py for UI exception definitions.
* Cull duplicate entries in the dependency output when both a real
package and a virtual that is provided by that package exist.
(e.g. packages with exim | mail-transport-agent no longer list exim
twice if you have it installed.)

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

* Handle .'s in the realname part of addresses correctly, as
rfc822.quote() doesn't seem to work right. (Closes: #127637)
* Add message warning certain users not to attach stuff in external
programs until debbugs is fixed to handle MIME correctly, at which
time this message will look incredibly stupid. "Fixes" my part of
#131100 ("Chris should never have let people edit messages in programs
that can attach MIME, and therefore is responsible for problems in
debbugs."). Alternate solution: disable --mutt. Y'alls' choice.

* Warn if subject > 60 characters. (Closes: #129099)
* Added security.debian.org to valid pseudopackages. (Closes: #129889)

* Cleaned up .reportbugrc handling code even more. As a bonus, 'bts'
finally works as a config file option...
* Suppress stderr diagnostics from dpkg --search.
* Fix severity specification in rc files, for real this time. A silly
thinko was stopping it from working. (Closes: #122539)
* Fix crash when --file is specified and not found. Also a side-effect

* In some weird situations, reportbug could bomb out with an exception
if no package was specified. (Closes: #119853)
* The unversioned recommendation for python-newt is deliberate.
This way an upgraded reportbug should work safely on a
partially-upgraded potato system. (Closes: #119142)

reportbug (1.12) unstable; urgency=low
* The "wait until a good version is in testing before breaking
everything horribly" release.
* User interface abstraction in progress... this version may be slightly
more unstable than usual. Currently installs reportbug_ui_text
(working) and reportbug_ui_newt (not fully working for reportbug,
but used by querybts).
* For kicks, try querybts --ui=text. If it breaks, both pieces are yours.
* Remove dependency on whiptail; all querybts dialogs are now handled by
python-newt.
* Improvements in screen handling in querybts. This should resolve the
remaining issues with #82895. (Closes: #82895)
* Fix skip command in the reportbug browser when there is more than one
page of bugs in the same category. (Closes: #84327)
* Looking at individual bug reports in reportbug now works a bit
differently; you are now prompted if you want to give more info and
can launch a browser to look at that bug. (To put it another way: the
functionality of querybts is merged in, even in text mode. UI
abstraction is our friend.) Downside: a few more keypresses to look
at lots of reports.
* You can now quit while looking at a report in querybts. (Closes: #62614)
* redisplay now shows the last screenful, not just min(last_screenful,
last_category). Someone complained about this in an already-closed
report (in addition to the main issue, which was resolved elsewhere).
* Don't clear the screen in querybts if it exits without an exception.
* pgp/gpg signing now omits the pseudoheaders from the signed section.
* Report numbers with a leading # now really work in querybts. Note that
you'll have to escape (or quote) the # in many shells...
* Remove some cruft from the source tree.
* Incorporated support for the Progeny BTS. Queries are not available
(I have not written a GNATS query module), but report submission is.
* -C command line option incorporated to specify the class of the report
for gnats servers.
* -S command line option allows either gnats or debbugs severities.
These are mapped transparently to the severity appropriate for the
specified BTS (i.e. wishlist on debbugs becomes non-critical for
gnats; non-critical for gnats becomes normal for Debian).
* The --bts option now overrides whatever's detected from the package
info. However, bts options in the rc files will not override that
setting. This seems like a reasonable default so Origin makes sense
on Debian forks, who can set /etc/reportbug.conf to point to their BTS.
* Updated TODO list to add some things that have been kicking around in
my head.
* If multiple packages match a file requested by the -f option, list the
first 3 matching files for each package.
* Old --quiet is now --report-quiet; removed short option.
* New --quiet suppresses diagnostic output to stderr; nothing except
prompts should be written to the screen by reportbug when this flag is
specified. Primarily for UI testing.
* reportbug now has special prompt support for particular packages.
This is particularly useful with pseudopackages like wnpp, wherein the
severity of the report should be based on the subject (and the subject
should include certain keywords). (Note that this is different from
the "included in package" prompt support, which has been supported for
some time.) Try reporting a wnpp bug to see what it does... who

reportbug (1.10) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fix -B option when a package's status is not queried by reportbug.
(Closes: #83552)
* Somewhat better handling of bogus $http_proxy settings. reportbug and
querybts still fail with an exception, but it gives a hint why. Also
document the syntax even more explicitly in the man pages. (Closes: #83301)
* You can now do 'querybts #82843' (allowing a leading #). (Closes: #82843)
* If you're running querybts under Python 2.x, use the webbrowser module
instead of our own internal logic. (Closes: #83545)
* Handle missing reports more gracefully. (Closes: #83579)
* List all addresses a report is sent to, not just those specified on the
command line. (Closes: #81609)
* If you request more info on a bug, $PAGER will be used.
(Closes: #82791, #48328)
* reportbug now runs if readline cannot be imported.
* Tab-completion is now supported at some prompts if the readline module
can be imported. This affects the severity prompt and the packages
prompt at the moment. (Closes: #81496, #82843)
* Leading and trailing spaces on input are now stripped. This shouldn't
hurt anything, and makes tab completion behave nicely.
* Complies to policy 3.2.1.0, no changes necessary.

* #75137 was fixed in 1.1 (same as #68681, I think). (Closes: #75137)
* Remove support for the TDYC bug tracking system, since KDE2 is in
Debian now and the BTS there has been shut down. (Closes: #77335)
* Add support for the Origin and Bugs headers. (Closes: #76669)
Origin probably works well, Bugs probably doesn't do what you want it
to yet (it can report to the server, but I'm almost certain it won't
query the right server).
* BTSes found in /etc/dpkg/origins/* will be added to the BTS list
automatically. Any Bugs: line other than debbugs URLs will probably not
work, however.
* Some internal architecture support for reporting to GNATS. It isn't
all there yet, so unless you want to see tracebacks tread lightly.
* #62338 is not a bug; see the -i option. (Closes: #62338)

* '-l' means '--ldap' now, which actually makes more sense.

It uses a file /usr/share/doc/{package}/Debian.bugtemplate, which

* Bugs sent to tdyc now have their package field append '-debian', to
better reflect TDYC's tracking policies. (Closes: #44000)

reportbug (0.24) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed a bug that made reportbug claim all conffiles were modified,
even if they weren't. (Closes: #43871)
* Now distinguishes between pseudo-headers and other headers (like
X-Debian-CC:) in reports. Pseudo-headers are reordered if necessary
so they appear in the sequence: Package, Version, Severity, File.
(Closes: #43868)
* Fiddled around with the man page somewhat. If it's 4 pages long, it's
not "briefly" documenting anything anymore.

reportbug (0.23) unstable; urgency=low
* Add "listarchives" to the list of pseudo-packages that you can report

reportbug provides an interface to this capability. (Closes: #43219)

reportbug (0.21) unstable; urgency=low
* reportbug.get_dependency_info() now actually acts sensibly; also
doesn't crash if a package doesn't depend on anything else.
(Closes: #42328)
* Warn if you're reporting a bug in a non-existant package.
* Don't crash if you're reporting a bug in a virtual package.

running reportbug as root.
* Redesigned the configuration file handling system.

reportbug (0.15) unstable; urgency=low
* Remove extraneous diff file from source tree (introduced in 0.14).
* Include a default severity level when prompted. Suggestion by
Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho. (Closes: #41332)
* Support alternate debbugs servers, using new --bts (-B) option.
Defaults to 'debian'; also supports 'tdyc' (or 'kde'). For
example, to report a bug in kdebase use 'reportbug -B kde kdebase'.
Feel free to add/suggest support for other debbugs servers.
Suggestion by Achim Bohnet. (Closes: #41374)
* greportbug is sorta getting there. Any Gtk+ guru wanna tell me why my
labels and option menus look like someone was drunk when they were
aligned? [See the source package...]

reportbug (0.11) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed man page to document --no-bts-query (-b).
* Dependency modified until unstable picks up the python 1.5.2-4 upload
for non-PowerPC architectures; avoid using versioned dependencies on
packages obsoleted by 1.5.2-4 to make Gregor's life easier.
* Alias sys.stderr.write() -> ewrite()
* No greportbug yet (sorry X fans).
-- Chris Lawrence <lawrencc@debian.org> Wed, 30 Jun 1999 01:02:04 -0500
reportbug (0.10) unstable; urgency=low
* Changed several popen() calls to use the 'commands' module;
makes for much cleaner code.
* Changed dependency to "python-base (>= 1.5.2-4)"; avoids dependencies
on obsolete python-{misc,net}.
* If the package was found using --filename (-f), include that filename
in the report header.
