* Since jade generates the ugliest html I have ever seen, I'm now using tidy to clean that up and indent it properly.
* Updated and completed the Polish l10n thanks to Marcin Owsiany <firstname.lastname@example.org>. * Now build depends on the latest debhelper to automatically merge translated templates files. * Corrected stupid mistake I made when I added sprintf() calls. Now new Polish translation is fully functional.
* Jazzed up the Template class. It can now load in templates files and instantiate whole sets of templates on the fly. This is good because that code used to be in ConfigDb, which is the part of debconf that will probably go away eventually. * Templates can also strignify themselves now, which recreates a templates file entry. And there is a class method for stringifying a whole list of objects, which can recreate a whole templates file. * The above new functionality lets me use the Template class for something new: management of translated templates files. Added some new utilities to help with splitting and merging templates files for translation. The idea for these utilities came from Michael Sobolev <email@example.com>. Thanks, Michael! * Added mentions of these utilities to the tutorial. * Broke off all the small and non-essential utilities into a new debconf-utils package. Developers and extreme power users may want it, others will not. * All the programs in debconf-utils now have names starting with "debconf-". This means dpkg-debconf has been renmaed (again) to debconf-communicate, and dpkg-loadtemplate has been renamed to debconf-loadtemplate. I hope these are the last name changes. * Used sprintf in all gettext() calls that have a parameter. This may have messed up the polish translation though.
build dep update
* gettextized the entire source tree, so it can now be translated. I used Locale::gettext for this, but since it is not in base, I have arranged for debconf to continue working if it is not found (just using the C locale). * Added polish translation from Marcin Owsiany <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
* Prompted priority to standard, since lynx depends on it. Closes: #63346
* debconf-doc conflicts with older versions of debconf that contained the manpages. Closes: #62030
* And this is an upload with the -doc package turned back on. Maybe one day a ftp admin will be kind enough to approve that new package..
* This is a quick build w/o the -doc package, to allow debconf to get quickly through incoming without waiting for manual approval (I have some important bugs fixed in the many versions below that are stuck in Incoming.)
* Added dpkg-loadtemplate, a simple program that loads templates into the debconf database. This is *not* intended to be used by debian packages, but can be useful for debugging purposes and for pre-seeding the database before installing a package. * Moved all external manpages for perl programs into POD format. * Updated all pod docs to fix formatting problems. * debconf-tiny is no more. Instead, we now have debconf and debconf-doc. This makes debconf proper be nearly as small as debconf-tiny used to be and gets rid of the set of problems associated with debconf-tiny. * This huge and unmanageable changelog is 20k compressed. To make debconf a reasonable size, I am only including the last 5 changelog entries in debconf; the rest go in -doc. * Several modules are now Exporters, and I use that where possible to reduce code size. * Strip all pod docs out of modules in binary package. Ugly, but saves a great deal of space. * Killed off the gtk frontend. The code has been rotting, and it just needs to be rewritten. * Changed the AutoSelect fallbacks around, most frontends now fall back to Slang. * Text frontend no longer always prompts for a Enter press at the end of a run. * Moved some doc files into doc/ in the source package.
fixed some bugs Added text to helpbar.
* Fixed dpkg-preconfigure to not use Getopt::Long, so it will work even on the base system it is now a part of. * As a workaround for the dialog lock problem (which seems to be a dialog bug), never use dialog for the text mode menus. Works around: #56518 (grave), #57771 (important)
Merged from potato.
* Woops, I forgot to let the CLEAR command be executed in any of the confmodule libraries! * base-config needs that command, so this must go to frozen.
* Removed apt-setup; it is in base-config now. * Minor README change. * Now build-depends on sgml-data, to follow the bouncing xml.dcl. * In fact, I have to change things to use a new name and path for that file too. * Really fixed that typo.
* Now just depends on perl-5.005-base (of sufficiently recent version), since that package now contains everything I need. (Closes: #53186) * Client/frontend: Look for templates in /usr/share/debconf/templates/ as well as the current directory. Useful for stadalone programs that use debconf. * Include apt-setup in debconf and debconf-tiny for now, since the base system needs them available *now*. This is not the right long-term location, though. Closes: #53187 (Adam, you want to run "/usr/sbin/apt-setup probe")
* Tightened up the perl dependancies. I think the previous looser dependancies might have caused a problem.
* Depend on the version of fileutils that supported --ignore-fail-on-non-empty, Closes: #52746 (should that bug really have been grave? It could only be triggered if you installed debconf w/o upgrading to potato fileutils, and then purged it.) * Despite what the bug report says, the postinst has never ran rmdir.
COrrected debconf-tiny conflicts line.
* Needs a versioned debhelper dependency.
* Build-Depends on docbook-stylesheets, which are needed to make the xml docs be formatted decently.
* Element/Dialog/String.pm: Fixed a thinko that is causing the warning messages reported in bug #51561.
* Changed tutorial docs of version command. Clients are not stricly required to pass a version number into it. * Removed warning message if a client does not pass in a version, Closes: #51431 * Added build dependancy info.
* Changed how text frontend's select element indicates which choice is default. It can now indicate when numbers are the default. Closes: #50751 * Detect if libterm-readline-*-perl is being used. If so, allow interactive editing of the default, since that is supported. If not, display the default as part of the prompt. This makes things more consistent overall. * Added 'none of the above' option to [multi]select elements, so if you don't have libterm-readline-*-perl, you can still override the default and choose nothing. Unfortunatly, I still don't see a way to do that with string input elements.. * Since w3m is currently broken, dump pages with lynx for now.
* Added a debconf-tiny package, which is a very stripped down debconf to be used on the base system. Debconf itself is 117+k, mainly because of all the frontends and docs. To make debconf-tiny, I: - removed all docs - removed all frontends except dialog and noninteractive - removed most stuff in /usr/bin - stripped out all POD docs and regular comments from all perl modules - All this got the package down to 27k compressed. 14k compressed of that was this changelog (It's all the fault of long changelog entries like this one!) - So, I started a new changelog for debconf-tiny, in which I will record changes specific to it. debconf-tiny is now 12k. * Removed /etc from package.
* People just don't seem to get it -- NEVER use dh_input in a postinst! Tightened up the language about that in the tutorial, and repeated my self in several places in the hope people will read at least one of them. * Eliminated use of Fcntl, one of the modules that made us depend on perl. * Deleted the copy of the spec that was local to this document. The configuration management spec is now available as an xml document, in Debian CVS. For convenience, debconf includes that document now.
* The dialog frontend can now use --passwordbox with both whiptail and dialog, so I made that change. (Closes: #47196) * Added a section to the tutorail on adding backup capabilities to config scripts. (Closes: #47676)
* Converted the tutorial and introduction to xml and docbook.
* Gtk frontend can use the newest gtk-perl to test whether opening the display will work. Closes: #46736 * metaget'ing choices now returns a list. Fixes the other half of #46606. * Select boxes that consist of one item are not displayed.
* Fixed the problems with the purge command, which were really package name guessing problems and some errors in the new purge code. BenC, it's ready for you. * Don't install frontend in /bin (Closes: #46149) * Fixed a problem with interpretation of the set command. The second parameter can have spaces in it. * Added data-dumper dependancy, since some perl's don't include it. (Closes: #46147)
* gdialog will soon support --defaultno, added versionsed conflicts with versions that don't, and support it again. * ConfModule::new() doesn't take a confmodule to start anymore, I broke that out into a separate function. * AutoSelect only starts up the script if it's actually passed once. TRhis should fix your problem, BenC.
* Hm, I know I fixed this before, but the fix seems to have been lost: Fixed bug in the AutoSelect that was making it *always* try dialog first, even if something else was picked. (Closes: #46020) * Dialog has no --defaultno flag, which makes it unusable for debconf. Oh, so does gdialog. I have submitted a patch for dialog, but for now I have simply made debconf not accept dialog. If you don't have whiptail, you get text mode. I also made the --defaultno flag be passed first, which is how dialog will (eventually) support it. (Closes: #46047) * Dialog frontend no longer clears the screen when running. Makes it easier to get at debug messages. (Closes: #46048) * dpkg-reconfigure was trashing ownerships, fixed.
* Added fallback frontend support. If the frontend the user selects is not available, or fails to initialize (say DISPLAY is unset for Gtk), it will fall back intelligently to another frontend. * This means debconf doesn't really depend on much at all except perl. Moved most stuff to suggests. * The Gtk frontend was dying in a way not catchable by eval (!!) if DISPLAY was unset; added a fix to that so it falls back instead. * Removed some dpkg-preconfig spam.
* Force use of gnu readline perl library. The other one is too bad. * dpkg-reconfigure allows you to configure it's frontend now.
* Fixed a typo in the tutorial, and expanded it some. * Fixed the apt dependancy, which was on too low a version. * Depend on whiptail || dialog || gnome-utils so some kind of dialog is installed always.
* All the sigchld counting and handling stuff was making debconf segfault and making it fragile in various ways. Removed it. Instead, I have modified update-menus to DTRT, and I depend on that version.
* Added COPYING file. * Renamed README to EXAMPLES. * Wrote a new README that just points to the other files. * Wrote doc/INTRODUCTION, giving some history of how things have worked, and why debconf is better. * Suggests libterm-readline-gnu-perl, which is best for the Line frontend. * dpkg-preconfig uses the frontend specified in the conffile now. * Element::Line::Boolean now uses the correct values as the default. * FrontEnd::Line now actually displays titles. * Client::ConfModule should now run the config script like confmodule.sh does, for transparent installation of debconf packages. Needs testing.
* Back after a one month hiatus. I've moved debconf around in my cvs repository, though the debconf module name should still work. * Debconf is now FHS compliant. * Removed some junk from the Makefile I no longer need. * Added doc/packages-prompt, just a list of some packages that need to be modified.
* Question->value now returns the default field if value is unset (thanks, AJ) * Various minor touchups everywhere. * Killed slrn sample, this is going into the main slrn package and is already significently better in there. * Added Element/Gtk/*, from AJ.
* dpkg-preconfig now has a --apt option that makes it read debs to configure on stdin. This is for use with apt of course. (A hacked apt that can use this exists now.) * Dialog frontend only clears the screen just before displaying a non-gdialog dialog box. * Depend on the version of apt that really works with debconf. * A postinst and postrm modify /etc/apt/apt.conf to make apt use dpkg-preconfig to configure packages. (The file's not actually part of apt, so this is not too evil).
oops, arch all, not any.
Renamed client to CLient for consitency.
