4    these recently and so older series have some errors.

11  * Create a [no-]follow-build-depends feature; follow by default.
12  * Expand source package by adding the Built-Using set.  Treat all
13    Built-Using as if part of the build-dependency tree.

56  * Make it possible to add a custom seed with no parents.
57  * Fix TagFile.sections to use try/finally so that the temporary directory
58    reliably gets cleaned up.

63
64  * Fix Vcs-Bzr field so that it actually works with bzr.  Adjust
65    Vcs-Browser field to match.
66  * Allow subclasses of SeedStructure to override a new make_seed method in
67    order to slot in a different Seed implementation.

73  * Bump recursion limit to 3000; apparently utopic trips over the existing
74    limit (LP: #1312478).

79
80  * Quote slashes in suite names when constructing local tag file names
81    (thanks, Eugene Paskevich).
82  * Change default distribution to trusty.
83  * Update kubuntu-meta example in germinate-update-metapackage(1).
84  * Policy version 3.9.5: no changes required.

89
90  * Use type and selector attributes of urllib.request.Request in Python >=
91    3.1 rather than the deprecated get_type and get_selector accessor
92    methods, fixing a build failure with Python 3.4 which removed these
93    methods entirely.

98
99  * Micro-optimise lesser seeds calculation in
100    Germinator._promote_dependency.
101  * Amend dh_germinate_metapackage(1) to note that this program must be run
102    after dh_prep.
103  * Tolerate missing reasons when writing output.  This is possible when
104    germinate is being run over multiple flavours for the same architecture,
105    and packages are promoted differently between seeds depending on the
106    flavour.  We can't generate a correct reason without a heavy performance
107    cost in this case, but we can at least not crash.
108  * Remove a few unnecessary "if condition: return True; else: return False"
109    patterns.
110  * Support multiarch (build-)dependency qualifiers (:any, :native).

116  * Fix dh_germinate_clean(1) and dh_germinate_metapackage(1) to recommend
117    syntax compatible with debhelper 8.
118  * Policy version 3.9.4:
119    - Add a Vcs-Browser field.
120  * Change default distribution to saucy.

125
126  * Add dists option to distribution sections in
127    germinate-update-metapackage configuration, making it more useful for
128    released distributions.

132germinate (2.11) unstable; urgency=low
133
134  * Use collections.defaultdict instead of manually initialising elements.
135  * Simplify some sorted() calls, relying on the default iterator for
136    mappings being .keys().
137  * Simplify code to clean up bzr cache, removing an unnecessary helper
138    function.
139  * Add support for reading seeds from relative filesystem paths (thanks,
140    Sjoerd Simons; LP: #1010186).
141  * Only allow dh_python2 to operate on python-germinate, to avoid chaos
142    caused by shebang rewriting.

154
155  * Support both Python 2 and 3 directly rather than using 2to3.
156  * Make various cosmetic changes to conform to PEP-8.
157  * Switch the top-level scripts to Python 3 by default.  (They can still be
158    run manually with /usr/bin/python if need be.)
159  * Update copyright dates.
160  * Policy version 3.9.3:
161    - Convert debian/copyright to copyright-format 1.0.

168    Python 2.6 (closes: #661608).

178
179germinate (2.6) unstable; urgency=low
180
181  * Fix processing of multiple suites where there are different versions of
182    a package with different Provides fields.
183  * Fix SeedStructure.write_seed_text to handle UTF-8 text in seeds
184    correctly.

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

225
226germinate (2.4) unstable; urgency=low
227
228  * Make Kernel-Version lexically scoped from the point in the seed where
229    it's encountered to either the end of the seed or the next
230    Kernel-Version entry, whichever comes first.  Previously, the set of
231    Kernel-Version values allowed for a seed was the union of all
232    Kernel-Version entries in the seed, which is not what we want in
233    practice.

237germinate (2.3) unstable; urgency=low
238
239  * Adjust AtomicFile to not rename the .new file into place if the context
240    exited with an exception (thanks, Jeroen T. Vermeulen).
241  * Cope with an Archive implementation returning Maintainer values that are
242    already unicode.

245
246germinate (2.2) unstable; urgency=low
247
248  * Fix Germinator._follow_recommends to prevent a crash while calculating
249    reverse-dependencies (LP: #900404).
250
251 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@ubuntu.com>  Wed, 07 Dec 2011 01:48:38 +0000
252
253germinate (2.1) unstable; urgency=low
254
255  * Call superclass constructor in GerminateFormatter's constructor.
256  * Build-depend on python-all.
257  * Store instances of Seed as GerminatedSeed._raw_seed, rather than
258    instances of BytesIO which are transient and won't compare the way we
259    need them to.
260  * Remove build-sources entries that also appear in sources outputs at
261    output time rather than immediately, which has the effect of removing
262    sources that appear in any seed in the structure rather than just those
263    processed earlier.  This fixes behaviour when processing multiple seed
264    structures, but also seems to fit more closely with the original intent
265    of build-sources as documented in README, which I think was broken all
266    the way back in r70 when seed hierarchies were first allowed to fork.
267  * Fix inclusion/exclusion of packages from seeds other than "extra".
268

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

910  * Allow shell-style globs in seeds wherever regular expressions are
911    allowed. (Regular expressions are surrounded by /.../, making this
912    unambiguous.)
913  * Add support for Extra-Include and Extra-Exclude variables, which allow
914    automatically rescuing packages that match certain patterns from extra
915    (https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+spec/seed-cleanup).
916  * Tweak logging priorities for messages about virtual seed entries.
917  * Don't display debugging messages by default; add germinate -v/--verbose
918    option to display them.
919  * Use sets rather than lists where possible. This roughly halves the
920    runtime for the Ubuntu seeds.
921  * Add extras recursively: binaries generated by sources pulled in by
922    dependencies or build-dependencies of extra binaries should themselves
923    be extra.

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

950  * Switch from urllib to urllib2.
951  * Refactor duplicated seed-fetching code into new Germinate.seeds module.
952  * Add optional seed_dist setting in update.cfg files, to allow setting a
953    default seed distribution.
954  * Add --bzr option to update-metapackage as well (mostly implementing
955    https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+spec/ubuntu-meta-from-bzr).

965  * Improve man page documentation of --seed-packages slightly (see

1004
1005  * When processing the build tree, germinate is (correctly) careful not to
1006    promote packages from lesser seeds, since we still want to consider them
1007    (e.g.) part of ship even if they're build-dependencies of desktop.
1008    However, this sometimes caused us to select the wrong alternative from
1009    an or-ed build-dependency (e.g. redland Build-Depends:
1010    libmysqlclient15-dev | libmysqlclient12-dev | libmysqlclient10-dev and
1011    libmysqlclient15-dev was in the Ubuntu supported seed). To fix this,
1012    process the packages at that point anyway and just avoid promoting them.

1019    packages and skip any superseded binaries.
1020  * Change default for --components to main and restricted, since the Ubuntu
1021    seeds rely on packages from restricted in order to germinate correctly.

1034    specification error checking in order to be able to use [...] in regular
1035    expressions more easily.
1036  * Add support for including all the binaries from a given source package
1037    (using "%source") in seeds.
1038  * Add germinate --cleanup option, to prevent caching of Packages and
1039    Sources files.
1040  * Add germinate --source-mirror option, to allow Packages and Sources
1041    files to be on different mirrors (e.g. Ubuntu ports architectures).

1066  * Update pkg-diff's default seeds to 'minimal standard desktop', to match
1067    the breezy seeds.
1068  * Add germinate --seed-packages option, to allow calculating dependencies
1069    of individual extra packages during a germinate run.

1071  * Update GPL notices with the FSF's new address.

1080  * Record allowed d-i kernel versions on a per-seed basis, so that we can
1081    have some kernel versions supported for netboot installations only.
1082  * Force a trailing slash onto the end of any --seed-source argument.
