51
52  * Fix Vcs-Bzr field so that it actually works with bzr.  Adjust
53    Vcs-Browser field to match.
54  * Allow subclasses of SeedStructure to override a new make_seed method in
55    order to slot in a different Seed implementation.

68  * Quote slashes in suite names when constructing local tag file names
69    (thanks, Eugene Paskevich).
70  * Change default distribution to trusty.
71  * Update kubuntu-meta example in germinate-update-metapackage(1).
72  * Policy version 3.9.5: no changes required.

77
78  * Use type and selector attributes of urllib.request.Request in Python >=
79    3.1 rather than the deprecated get_type and get_selector accessor
80    methods, fixing a build failure with Python 3.4 which removed these
81    methods entirely.

86
87  * Micro-optimise lesser seeds calculation in
88    Germinator._promote_dependency.
89  * Amend dh_germinate_metapackage(1) to note that this program must be run
90    after dh_prep.
91  * Tolerate missing reasons when writing output.  This is possible when
92    germinate is being run over multiple flavours for the same architecture,
93    and packages are promoted differently between seeds depending on the
94    flavour.  We can't generate a correct reason without a heavy performance
95    cost in this case, but we can at least not crash.
96  * Remove a few unnecessary "if condition: return True; else: return False"
97    patterns.
98  * Support multiarch (build-)dependency qualifiers (:any, :native).

105    syntax compatible with debhelper 8.
106  * Policy version 3.9.4:
107    - Add a Vcs-Browser field.

115    germinate-update-metapackage configuration, making it more useful for
116    released distributions.

121
122  * Use collections.defaultdict instead of manually initialising elements.
123  * Simplify some sorted() calls, relying on the default iterator for
124    mappings being .keys().
125  * Simplify code to clean up bzr cache, removing an unnecessary helper
126    function.
127  * Add support for reading seeds from relative filesystem paths (thanks,
128    Sjoerd Simons; LP: #1010186).
129  * Only allow dh_python2 to operate on python-germinate, to avoid chaos
130    caused by shebang rewriting.

143  * Support both Python 2 and 3 directly rather than using 2to3.
144  * Make various cosmetic changes to conform to PEP-8.
145  * Switch the top-level scripts to Python 3 by default.  (They can still be
146    run manually with /usr/bin/python if need be.)
147  * Update copyright dates.
148  * Policy version 3.9.3:
149    - Convert debian/copyright to copyright-format 1.0.

163    the C locale.

167germinate (2.6) unstable; urgency=low
168
169  * Fix processing of multiple suites where there are different versions of
170    a package with different Provides fields.
171  * Fix SeedStructure.write_seed_text to handle UTF-8 text in seeds
172    correctly.

175
176germinate (2.5) unstable; urgency=low
177
178  * Stop fetching Suggests from Packages; we don't use it.
179  * Build a cache of seed entries when analysing reverse-dependencies, so
180    that we don't have to expensively call get_seed_entries once per package
181    per seed (LP: #915569).
182  * Convert to setuptools.
183  * Add the beginnings of a test suite.
184  * Make the main bodies of scripts into modules so that they can be tested
185    more easily.
186  * Remove private AtomicUTF8File class; just write all files as UTF-8.
187
188  * Port to Python 3:
189    - Use "raise Exception(value)" syntax rather than the old-style "raise
190      Exception, value".
191    - Use Python 3-style print functions.
192    - Use a list comprehension rather than filter (which behaves differently
193      in Python 3).
194    - Make GraphCycleError a subclass of Exception rather than of
195      StandardError.
196    - Simplify stringiness tests in TagFile.__init__ and Seed.__init__ using
197      basestring.
198    - Implement rich comparison methods instead of __cmp__ for Seed and
199      GerminatedSeed.  (Seed needs all of them for interface-compatibility;
200      GerminatedSeed only needs __eq__ and __ne__.)
201    - Use Python 3 replacements for urllib, urllib2, and ConfigParser if
202      available.
203    - When decompressing tag files from the archive, explicitly treat
204      everything as binary data.
205    - In Python 3, decode seed data read from URLs as UTF-8.
206    - Pass universal_newlines=True to subprocess.Popen to get Unicode
207      output.
208    - Make sure to close stdout of subprocess.Popen objects.
209    - Use 2to3 to handle the few remaining 2/3 differences at build time.
210    - Add a python3-germinate package.

214germinate (2.4) unstable; urgency=low
215
216  * Make Kernel-Version lexically scoped from the point in the seed where
217    it's encountered to either the end of the seed or the next
218    Kernel-Version entry, whichever comes first.  Previously, the set of
219    Kernel-Version values allowed for a seed was the union of all
220    Kernel-Version entries in the seed, which is not what we want in
221    practice.

226
227  * Adjust AtomicFile to not rename the .new file into place if the context
228    exited with an exception (thanks, Jeroen T. Vermeulen).
229  * Cope with an Archive implementation returning Maintainer values that are
230    already unicode.

233
234germinate (2.2) unstable; urgency=low
235
236  * Fix Germinator._follow_recommends to prevent a crash while calculating
237    reverse-dependencies (LP: #900404).

241germinate (2.1) unstable; urgency=low
242
243  * Call superclass constructor in GerminateFormatter's constructor.
244  * Build-depend on python-all.
245  * Store instances of Seed as GerminatedSeed._raw_seed, rather than
246    instances of BytesIO which are transient and won't compare the way we
247    need them to.
248  * Remove build-sources entries that also appear in sources outputs at
249    output time rather than immediately, which has the effect of removing
250    sources that appear in any seed in the structure rather than just those
251    processed earlier.  This fixes behaviour when processing multiple seed
252    structures, but also seems to fit more closely with the original intent
253    of build-sources as documented in README, which I think was broken all
254    the way back in r70 when seed hierarchies were first allowed to fork.
255  * Fix inclusion/exclusion of packages from seeds other than "extra".

258
259germinate (2.0) unstable; urgency=low
260
261  * Make sure to always close files after finishing with them.  Mostly this
262    is done using the 'with' statement in Python 2.6, but pychecker gets
263    unhappy with contextlib.closing so I carried on using traditional
264    try/finally blocks in cases that would require that.
265  * Remove all uses of os.system and os.popen, replacing them with uses of
266    the better-designed subprocess module.
267  * Remove all code supporting the germinate -i/--ipv6 option; this has been
268    off by default since November 2004, the service behind this was
269    discontinued in March 2007
270    (http://lists.debian.org/debian-ipv6/2007/02/msg00015.html), and
271    germinate was never a great place to track this kind of thing anyway.
272  * Convert all option parsing to optparse.  Consolidate defaults into a new
273    Germinate.defaults module.
274  * Update copyright dates.
275  * Move canonical source location from people.canonical.com to a hosted
276    branch on Launchpad.
277  * Slightly modernise use of dh_python2.
278  * Forbid seed names containing slashes.
279  * Eliminate most uses of list.sort() in favour of sorted(iterable).
280  * When promoting dependencies from lesser seeds, remove them from the
281    lesser seed lists at output time rather than immediately.  This is
282    mostly to make it easier to process multiple seed structures, but also
283    fixes a long-standing bug where promoted dependencies were only removed
284    from a single arbitrary lesser seed rather than from all possible ones.
285  * Memoise the results of Germinator's _inner_seeds, _strictly_outer_seeds,
286    and _outer_seeds methods.  This saves nearly a third of germinate's
287    runtime in common cases.
288  * Write all output files atomically.
289  * Change default distribution to precise.
290  * Update kubuntu-meta example in germinate-update-metapackage(1).
291  * Refer to versioned GPL file in debian/copyright.
292  * Policy version 3.9.2: no changes required.
293
294  * Massive API cleanup:
295    - Move output-writing functions from the top-level germinate program
296      into Germinator.
297    - Redesign how Germinator gets Packages/Sources sections from the
298      archive.  This now works via an abstract interface, which should make
299      it easier to plug in alternative archive sources (e.g. a database).
300    - Move all apt_pkg interaction into library code.  Germinator.__init__
301      now takes an architecture argument so that it can set
302      APT::Architecture.
303    - Turn open_seed into a Seed class, allowing it to be a context manager.
304    - Move code pertaining to the structure of seeds into a SeedStructure
305      class, simplifying the interface.
306    - Make all module names lower-case, per PEP-8.  Remove the separate
307      Germinate.Archive.tagfile module; this is now in germinate.archive
308      directly.  Adjust build system and pychecker handling to support this.
309    - Remove unnecessary logging helper functions.
310    - Don't modify level names on the root logger simply as a result of
311      importing germinate.germinator; move this into a function.
312    - Prefix all private methods with an underscore.
313    - Remove germinate.tsort from germinate's public API.
314    - Convert all method names to the PEP-8 preferred style (method_name
315      rather than methodName).
316    - Introduce wrapper functions for the various uses of write_list and
317      write_source_list, and make the underlying methods private.
318    - Make most instance variables private by prefixing an underscore,
319      adding a few accessor methods.
320    - Convert build system to distutils, make the germinate Python package
321      public, and create a new python-germinate binary package.
322    - Improve the Seed class so that seeds can be read multiple times
323      without having to redownload them, and so that they remember which
324      branch they came from.
325    - Don't modify inner seeds when processing outer ones; filter
326      build-dependencies on output instead.
327    - Don't plant or grow seeds that have already had functionally-identical
328      versions planted or grown respectively.
329    - Automatically convert string dists/components/mirrors/source_mirrors
330      arguments to lists in TagFile constructor.
331    - Make it possible for a single Germinator to process multiple seed
332      structures, reusing the work done on common seeds.
333    - Canonicalise mirrors (by appending '/' if necessary) in TagFile rather
334      than in the main germinate program.
335    - Handle the extra seed entirely within Germinator rather than modifying
336      SeedStructure (which doesn't fit well with processing the same seed
337      structure on multiple architectures).
338    - Use module-level loggers.
339    - Get rid of the custom PROGRESS log level.
340    - Change germinate.archive to use logging rather than print.
341    - Add docstrings for all public classes and methods, and tidy up a few
342      existing ones per PEP-257.

907  * Use sets rather than lists where possible. This roughly halves the
908    runtime for the Ubuntu seeds.
909  * Add extras recursively: binaries generated by sources pulled in by
910    dependencies or build-dependencies of extra binaries should themselves
911    be extra.

927    packages for the wrong kernel version (which can easily happen e.g. if

993  * When processing the build tree, germinate is (correctly) careful not to
994    promote packages from lesser seeds, since we still want to consider them
995    (e.g.) part of ship even if they're build-dependencies of desktop.
996    However, this sometimes caused us to select the wrong alternative from
997    an or-ed build-dependency (e.g. redland Build-Depends:
998    libmysqlclient15-dev | libmysqlclient12-dev | libmysqlclient10-dev and
999    libmysqlclient15-dev was in the Ubuntu supported seed). To fix this,
1000    process the packages at that point anyway and just avoid promoting them.
