71  * Use type and selector attributes of urllib.request.Request in Python >=
72    3.1 rather than the deprecated get_type and get_selector accessor
73    methods, fixing a build failure with Python 3.4 which removed these
74    methods entirely.

79
80  * Micro-optimise lesser seeds calculation in
81    Germinator._promote_dependency.
82  * Amend dh_germinate_metapackage(1) to note that this program must be run
83    after dh_prep.
84  * Tolerate missing reasons when writing output.  This is possible when
85    germinate is being run over multiple flavours for the same architecture,
86    and packages are promoted differently between seeds depending on the
87    flavour.  We can't generate a correct reason without a heavy performance
88    cost in this case, but we can at least not crash.
89  * Remove a few unnecessary "if condition: return True; else: return False"
90    patterns.
91  * Support multiarch (build-)dependency qualifiers (:any, :native).

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

138  * Switch the top-level scripts to Python 3 by default.  (They can still be
139    run manually with /usr/bin/python if need be.)
140  * Update copyright dates.

163    a package with different Provides fields.

165    correctly.

170
171  * Stop fetching Suggests from Packages; we don't use it.
172  * Build a cache of seed entries when analysing reverse-dependencies, so
173    that we don't have to expensively call get_seed_entries once per package
174    per seed (LP: #915569).
175  * Convert to setuptools.
176  * Add the beginnings of a test suite.
177  * Make the main bodies of scripts into modules so that they can be tested
178    more easily.
179  * Remove private AtomicUTF8File class; just write all files as UTF-8.
180
181  * Port to Python 3:
182    - Use "raise Exception(value)" syntax rather than the old-style "raise
183      Exception, value".
184    - Use Python 3-style print functions.
185    - Use a list comprehension rather than filter (which behaves differently
186      in Python 3).
187    - Make GraphCycleError a subclass of Exception rather than of
188      StandardError.
189    - Simplify stringiness tests in TagFile.__init__ and Seed.__init__ using
190      basestring.
191    - Implement rich comparison methods instead of __cmp__ for Seed and
192      GerminatedSeed.  (Seed needs all of them for interface-compatibility;
193      GerminatedSeed only needs __eq__ and __ne__.)
194    - Use Python 3 replacements for urllib, urllib2, and ConfigParser if
195      available.
196    - When decompressing tag files from the archive, explicitly treat
197      everything as binary data.
198    - In Python 3, decode seed data read from URLs as UTF-8.
199    - Pass universal_newlines=True to subprocess.Popen to get Unicode
200      output.
201    - Make sure to close stdout of subprocess.Popen objects.
202    - Use 2to3 to handle the few remaining 2/3 differences at build time.
203    - Add a python3-germinate package.

208
209  * Make Kernel-Version lexically scoped from the point in the seed where
210    it's encountered to either the end of the seed or the next
211    Kernel-Version entry, whichever comes first.  Previously, the set of
212    Kernel-Version values allowed for a seed was the union of all
213    Kernel-Version entries in the seed, which is not what we want in
214    practice.

219
220  * Adjust AtomicFile to not rename the .new file into place if the context
221    exited with an exception (thanks, Jeroen T. Vermeulen).
222  * Cope with an Archive implementation returning Maintainer values that are
223    already unicode.

228
229  * Fix Germinator._follow_recommends to prevent a crash while calculating
230    reverse-dependencies (LP: #900404).

235
236  * Call superclass constructor in GerminateFormatter's constructor.
237  * Build-depend on python-all.
238  * Store instances of Seed as GerminatedSeed._raw_seed, rather than
239    instances of BytesIO which are transient and won't compare the way we
240    need them to.
241  * Remove build-sources entries that also appear in sources outputs at
242    output time rather than immediately, which has the effect of removing
243    sources that appear in any seed in the structure rather than just those
244    processed earlier.  This fixes behaviour when processing multiple seed
245    structures, but also seems to fit more closely with the original intent
246    of build-sources as documented in README, which I think was broken all
247    the way back in r70 when seed hierarchies were first allowed to fork.
248  * Fix inclusion/exclusion of packages from seeds other than "extra".

251
252germinate (2.0) unstable; urgency=low
253
254  * Make sure to always close files after finishing with them.  Mostly this
255    is done using the 'with' statement in Python 2.6, but pychecker gets
256    unhappy with contextlib.closing so I carried on using traditional
257    try/finally blocks in cases that would require that.
258  * Remove all uses of os.system and os.popen, replacing them with uses of
259    the better-designed subprocess module.
260  * Remove all code supporting the germinate -i/--ipv6 option; this has been
261    off by default since November 2004, the service behind this was
262    discontinued in March 2007
263    (http://lists.debian.org/debian-ipv6/2007/02/msg00015.html), and
264    germinate was never a great place to track this kind of thing anyway.
265  * Convert all option parsing to optparse.  Consolidate defaults into a new
266    Germinate.defaults module.
267  * Update copyright dates.
268  * Move canonical source location from people.canonical.com to a hosted
269    branch on Launchpad.
270  * Slightly modernise use of dh_python2.
271  * Forbid seed names containing slashes.
272  * Eliminate most uses of list.sort() in favour of sorted(iterable).
273  * When promoting dependencies from lesser seeds, remove them from the
274    lesser seed lists at output time rather than immediately.  This is
275    mostly to make it easier to process multiple seed structures, but also
276    fixes a long-standing bug where promoted dependencies were only removed
277    from a single arbitrary lesser seed rather than from all possible ones.
278  * Memoise the results of Germinator's _inner_seeds, _strictly_outer_seeds,
279    and _outer_seeds methods.  This saves nearly a third of germinate's
280    runtime in common cases.
281  * Write all output files atomically.
282  * Change default distribution to precise.
283  * Update kubuntu-meta example in germinate-update-metapackage(1).
284  * Refer to versioned GPL file in debian/copyright.
285  * Policy version 3.9.2: no changes required.
286
287  * Massive API cleanup:
288    - Move output-writing functions from the top-level germinate program
289      into Germinator.
290    - Redesign how Germinator gets Packages/Sources sections from the
291      archive.  This now works via an abstract interface, which should make
292      it easier to plug in alternative archive sources (e.g. a database).
293    - Move all apt_pkg interaction into library code.  Germinator.__init__
294      now takes an architecture argument so that it can set
295      APT::Architecture.
296    - Turn open_seed into a Seed class, allowing it to be a context manager.
297    - Move code pertaining to the structure of seeds into a SeedStructure
298      class, simplifying the interface.
299    - Make all module names lower-case, per PEP-8.  Remove the separate
300      Germinate.Archive.tagfile module; this is now in germinate.archive
301      directly.  Adjust build system and pychecker handling to support this.
302    - Remove unnecessary logging helper functions.
303    - Don't modify level names on the root logger simply as a result of
304      importing germinate.germinator; move this into a function.
305    - Prefix all private methods with an underscore.
306    - Remove germinate.tsort from germinate's public API.
307    - Convert all method names to the PEP-8 preferred style (method_name
308      rather than methodName).
309    - Introduce wrapper functions for the various uses of write_list and
310      write_source_list, and make the underlying methods private.
311    - Make most instance variables private by prefixing an underscore,
312      adding a few accessor methods.
313    - Convert build system to distutils, make the germinate Python package
314      public, and create a new python-germinate binary package.
315    - Improve the Seed class so that seeds can be read multiple times
316      without having to redownload them, and so that they remember which
317      branch they came from.
318    - Don't modify inner seeds when processing outer ones; filter
319      build-dependencies on output instead.
320    - Don't plant or grow seeds that have already had functionally-identical
321      versions planted or grown respectively.
322    - Automatically convert string dists/components/mirrors/source_mirrors
323      arguments to lists in TagFile constructor.
324    - Make it possible for a single Germinator to process multiple seed
325      structures, reusing the work done on common seeds.
326    - Canonicalise mirrors (by appending '/' if necessary) in TagFile rather
327      than in the main germinate program.
328    - Handle the extra seed entirely within Germinator rather than modifying
329      SeedStructure (which doesn't fit well with processing the same seed
330      structure on multiple architectures).
331    - Use module-level loggers.
332    - Get rid of the custom PROGRESS log level.
333    - Change germinate.archive to use logging rather than print.
334    - Add docstrings for all public classes and methods, and tidy up a few
335      existing ones per PEP-257.

919  * Fix d-i kernel version pruning to happen early enough to exclude seeded
920    packages for the wrong kernel version (which can easily happen e.g. if
921    regex seeds are used).
922  * If no Kernel-Version variable is given, allow all udebs with
923    Kernel-Version headers rather than none of them.
924  * Change default distribution to edgy.

932  * Refactor duplicated seed-fetching code into new Germinate.seeds module.
933  * Add optional seed_dist setting in update.cfg files, to allow setting a
934    default seed distribution.
935  * Add --bzr option to update-metapackage as well (mostly implementing
936    https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+spec/ubuntu-meta-from-bzr).

945    https://launchpad.net/bugs/37917).
946  * Improve man page documentation of --seed-packages slightly (see

985
986  * When processing the build tree, germinate is (correctly) careful not to
987    promote packages from lesser seeds, since we still want to consider them
988    (e.g.) part of ship even if they're build-dependencies of desktop.
989    However, this sometimes caused us to select the wrong alternative from
990    an or-ed build-dependency (e.g. redland Build-Depends:
991    libmysqlclient15-dev | libmysqlclient12-dev | libmysqlclient10-dev and
992    libmysqlclient15-dev was in the Ubuntu supported seed). To fix this,
993    process the packages at that point anyway and just avoid promoting them.

1000    packages and skip any superseded binaries.
1001  * Change default for --components to main and restricted, since the Ubuntu
1002    seeds rely on packages from restricted in order to germinate correctly.

1014  * Add regular expression support in seeds. Weaken architecture
1015    specification error checking in order to be able to use [...] in regular
1016    expressions more easily.
1017  * Add support for including all the binaries from a given source package
1018    (using "%source") in seeds.
1019  * Add germinate --cleanup option, to prevent caching of Packages and
1020    Sources files.
1021  * Add germinate --source-mirror option, to allow Packages and Sources
1022    files to be on different mirrors (e.g. Ubuntu ports architectures).

1046    compare against as non-option arguments.
1047  * Update pkg-diff's default seeds to 'minimal standard desktop', to match
1048    the breezy seeds.
1049  * Add germinate --seed-packages option, to allow calculating dependencies
1050    of individual extra packages during a germinate run.
1051  * Policy version 3.6.2. No changes required.
1052  * Update GPL notices with the FSF's new address.

1061  * Record allowed d-i kernel versions on a per-seed basis, so that we can
1062    have some kernel versions supported for netboot installations only.
1063  * Force a trailing slash onto the end of any --seed-source argument.
