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

69
70  * Fix Vcs-Bzr field so that it actually works with bzr.  Adjust
71    Vcs-Browser field to match.
72  * Allow subclasses of SeedStructure to override a new make_seed method in
73    order to slot in a different Seed implementation.

80    limit (LP: #1312478).

85
86  * Quote slashes in suite names when constructing local tag file names
87    (thanks, Eugene Paskevich).
88  * Change default distribution to trusty.
89  * Update kubuntu-meta example in germinate-update-metapackage(1).
90  * Policy version 3.9.5: no changes required.

95
96  * Use type and selector attributes of urllib.request.Request in Python >=
97    3.1 rather than the deprecated get_type and get_selector accessor
98    methods, fixing a build failure with Python 3.4 which removed these
99    methods entirely.

103germinate (2.14) unstable; urgency=low
104
105  * Micro-optimise lesser seeds calculation in
106    Germinator._promote_dependency.
107  * Amend dh_germinate_metapackage(1) to note that this program must be run
108    after dh_prep.
109  * Tolerate missing reasons when writing output.  This is possible when
110    germinate is being run over multiple flavours for the same architecture,
111    and packages are promoted differently between seeds depending on the
112    flavour.  We can't generate a correct reason without a heavy performance
113    cost in this case, but we can at least not crash.
114  * Remove a few unnecessary "if condition: return True; else: return False"
115    patterns.
116  * Support multiarch (build-)dependency qualifiers (:any, :native).

121
122  * Fix dh_germinate_clean(1) and dh_germinate_metapackage(1) to recommend
123    syntax compatible with debhelper 8.
124  * Policy version 3.9.4:
125    - Add a Vcs-Browser field.
126  * Change default distribution to saucy.

131
132  * Add dists option to distribution sections in
133    germinate-update-metapackage configuration, making it more useful for
134    released distributions.

139
140  * Use collections.defaultdict instead of manually initialising elements.
141  * Simplify some sorted() calls, relying on the default iterator for
142    mappings being .keys().
143  * Simplify code to clean up bzr cache, removing an unnecessary helper
144    function.
145  * Add support for reading seeds from relative filesystem paths (thanks,
146    Sjoerd Simons; LP: #1010186).
147  * Only allow dh_python2 to operate on python-germinate, to avoid chaos
148    caused by shebang rewriting.

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

174    Python 2.6 (closes: #661608).

184
185germinate (2.6) unstable; urgency=low
186
187  * Fix processing of multiple suites where there are different versions of
188    a package with different Provides fields.
189  * Fix SeedStructure.write_seed_text to handle UTF-8 text in seeds
190    correctly.

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

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

244
245  * Adjust AtomicFile to not rename the .new file into place if the context
246    exited with an exception (thanks, Jeroen T. Vermeulen).
247  * Cope with an Archive implementation returning Maintainer values that are
248    already unicode.
249
250 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@ubuntu.com>  Mon, 12 Dec 2011 14:24:36 +0000
251
252germinate (2.2) unstable; urgency=low
253
254  * Fix Germinator._follow_recommends to prevent a crash while calculating
255    reverse-dependencies (LP: #900404).
256
257 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@ubuntu.com>  Wed, 07 Dec 2011 01:48:38 +0000
258
259germinate (2.1) unstable; urgency=low
260
261  * Call superclass constructor in GerminateFormatter's constructor.
262  * Build-depend on python-all.
263  * Store instances of Seed as GerminatedSeed._raw_seed, rather than
264    instances of BytesIO which are transient and won't compare the way we
265    need them to.
266  * Remove build-sources entries that also appear in sources outputs at
267    output time rather than immediately, which has the effect of removing
268    sources that appear in any seed in the structure rather than just those
269    processed earlier.  This fixes behaviour when processing multiple seed
270    structures, but also seems to fit more closely with the original intent
271    of build-sources as documented in README, which I think was broken all
272    the way back in r70 when seed hierarchies were first allowed to fork.
273  * Fix inclusion/exclusion of packages from seeds other than "extra".
274
275 -- Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>  Wed, 07 Dec 2011 00:51:12 +0000
276
277germinate (2.0) unstable; urgency=low
278
279  * Make sure to always close files after finishing with them.  Mostly this
280    is done using the 'with' statement in Python 2.6, but pychecker gets
281    unhappy with contextlib.closing so I carried on using traditional
282    try/finally blocks in cases that would require that.
283  * Remove all uses of os.system and os.popen, replacing them with uses of
284    the better-designed subprocess module.
285  * Remove all code supporting the germinate -i/--ipv6 option; this has been
286    off by default since November 2004, the service behind this was
287    discontinued in March 2007
288    (http://lists.debian.org/debian-ipv6/2007/02/msg00015.html), and
289    germinate was never a great place to track this kind of thing anyway.
290  * Convert all option parsing to optparse.  Consolidate defaults into a new
291    Germinate.defaults module.
292  * Update copyright dates.
293  * Move canonical source location from people.canonical.com to a hosted
294    branch on Launchpad.
295  * Slightly modernise use of dh_python2.
296  * Forbid seed names containing slashes.
297  * Eliminate most uses of list.sort() in favour of sorted(iterable).
298  * When promoting dependencies from lesser seeds, remove them from the
299    lesser seed lists at output time rather than immediately.  This is
300    mostly to make it easier to process multiple seed structures, but also
301    fixes a long-standing bug where promoted dependencies were only removed
302    from a single arbitrary lesser seed rather than from all possible ones.
303  * Memoise the results of Germinator's _inner_seeds, _strictly_outer_seeds,
304    and _outer_seeds methods.  This saves nearly a third of germinate's
305    runtime in common cases.
306  * Write all output files atomically.
307  * Change default distribution to precise.
308  * Update kubuntu-meta example in germinate-update-metapackage(1).
309  * Refer to versioned GPL file in debian/copyright.
310  * Policy version 3.9.2: no changes required.
311
312  * Massive API cleanup:
313    - Move output-writing functions from the top-level germinate program
314      into Germinator.
315    - Redesign how Germinator gets Packages/Sources sections from the
316      archive.  This now works via an abstract interface, which should make
317      it easier to plug in alternative archive sources (e.g. a database).
318    - Move all apt_pkg interaction into library code.  Germinator.__init__
319      now takes an architecture argument so that it can set
320      APT::Architecture.
321    - Turn open_seed into a Seed class, allowing it to be a context manager.
322    - Move code pertaining to the structure of seeds into a SeedStructure
323      class, simplifying the interface.
324    - Make all module names lower-case, per PEP-8.  Remove the separate
325      Germinate.Archive.tagfile module; this is now in germinate.archive
326      directly.  Adjust build system and pychecker handling to support this.
327    - Remove unnecessary logging helper functions.
328    - Don't modify level names on the root logger simply as a result of
329      importing germinate.germinator; move this into a function.
330    - Prefix all private methods with an underscore.
331    - Remove germinate.tsort from germinate's public API.
332    - Convert all method names to the PEP-8 preferred style (method_name
333      rather than methodName).
334    - Introduce wrapper functions for the various uses of write_list and
335      write_source_list, and make the underlying methods private.
336    - Make most instance variables private by prefixing an underscore,
337      adding a few accessor methods.
338    - Convert build system to distutils, make the germinate Python package
339      public, and create a new python-germinate binary package.
340    - Improve the Seed class so that seeds can be read multiple times
341      without having to redownload them, and so that they remember which
342      branch they came from.
343    - Don't modify inner seeds when processing outer ones; filter
344      build-dependencies on output instead.
345    - Don't plant or grow seeds that have already had functionally-identical
346      versions planted or grown respectively.
347    - Automatically convert string dists/components/mirrors/source_mirrors
348      arguments to lists in TagFile constructor.
349    - Make it possible for a single Germinator to process multiple seed
350      structures, reusing the work done on common seeds.
351    - Canonicalise mirrors (by appending '/' if necessary) in TagFile rather
352      than in the main germinate program.
353    - Handle the extra seed entirely within Germinator rather than modifying
354      SeedStructure (which doesn't fit well with processing the same seed
355      structure on multiple architectures).
356    - Use module-level loggers.
357    - Get rid of the custom PROGRESS log level.
358    - Change germinate.archive to use logging rather than print.
359    - Add docstrings for all public classes and methods, and tidy up a few
360      existing ones per PEP-257.

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

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

1011  * When processing the build tree, germinate is (correctly) careful not to
1012    promote packages from lesser seeds, since we still want to consider them
1013    (e.g.) part of ship even if they're build-dependencies of desktop.
1014    However, this sometimes caused us to select the wrong alternative from
1015    an or-ed build-dependency (e.g. redland Build-Depends:
1016    libmysqlclient15-dev | libmysqlclient12-dev | libmysqlclient10-dev and
1017    libmysqlclient15-dev was in the Ubuntu supported seed). To fix this,
1018    process the packages at that point anyway and just avoid promoting them.
