 dpkg (1.20.0) experimental; urgency=medium
   [ Guillem Jover ]
   * libdpkg: Do not generate a backup file for the available database.
     Closes: #343578
   * perl: Switch Getopt::Long from bundling to bundling_values. This means
     the few scripts using Getopt::Long will stop accepting options in the
     form «-ab» for «-a -b», which is not future-proof, as it does not allow
     these options to get new arguments without making them abiguous.
   * dpkg-buildpackage: Remove transient backwards R³ compatibility code.
   * buildtools.mk: Add support for nostrip in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS when setting
     the STRIP variable.
   * dpkg-genbuildinfo: Do not include irrelevant packages in the Binary field.
   * dpkg: Do not clear selections for unknown packages. Closes: #927752
   * dpkg-shlibdeps: Add support for new Build-Depends-Packages, to be able
     to specify multiple packages. Closes: #926669
     Based on a patch by Frank Schaefer <[hidden email]>.
   * perl: Remove support for versioned GnuPG 2 program and packages.
   * libdpkg: Clarify lock contender error message. Print the PID of the lock
     contender, and add a warning explaining that removing the lock file is
     never the correct solution.
   * dpkg-genchanges, dpkg-mergechangelogs: Remove support for ~vola
     versioning, as volatile.debian.org was decommissioned some time ago.
   * dpkg-genchanges, dpkg-mergechangelogs: Match ~deb also as a backport
     marker in versions. Closes: #934980
   * libdpkg, dpkg: Use new versiondescribe_c() for non-localizable call sites,
     such as when writing to a log, which should not be localized.
     Reported by Julien Cristau <[hidden email]>.
   * dpkg-query: Try to use the package synopsis from the available file if
     not installed. Closes: #43573
   * dpkg-gencontrol: Take into account hardlinks when computing the
     Installed-Size substvar. Closes: #923475
     Patch co-authored with Sven Joachim <[hidden email]>.
   * dpkg: Fix and clarify behavior for packages marked to be on “hold”. These
     need to be processed for configuration and triggers. Closes: #926472
   * dpkg: Use DPKG_ADMINDIR to set the admindir. Closes: #900071
   * dpkg-source: Remove backwards compatibility code for legacy build-profiles.
   * perl: Give more context on field parsing errors. Closes: #637060
   * dpkg-buildpackage: Add option to sanitize environment. Closes: #843776
   * update-alternatives: Cope with a missing administrative directory.
   * update-alternatives: Create the administrative directory on demand.
   * dpkg-split: Cope with a missing parts/ database directory.
   * dpkg-split: Create the parts/ database directory on demand.
   * libdpkg: Consider msdbrw_needsuperuser equivalent to msdbrw_write, so
     the same checks are performed on normal non --force-not-root operation.
   * libdpkg: Add support for bootstrapping the installation of dpkg:
     - Create the logfile with correct permissions, and remove the code
       setting up the logfile from the dpkg postinst.
     - Allow missing status and available databases, so that they get created
       on write, and remove the code setting them up from the dpkg postinst.
       Closes: #647911
     - Do not change the ownership of the triggers database directory. Either
       we are running as root:root which means the ownership should be correct
       already, or we are not which means we cannot change it anyway.
     - Create the dpkg database directory on demand.
     - Create the updates/ database directory on demand.
     - Create the info/ database directory on demand.
   * dpkg-architecture: Fix handling of exec failing in --command.
     Reported by Helmut Grohne <[hidden email]>.
   * dpkg-buildpackage: Do not accept equal signs as part of the hook names.
     Reported by Daniel Shahaf <[hidden email]>. Closes: #948291
   * dselect: Mark a string for translation.
   * dselect: Cleanup access methods:
     - Remove harddisk methods, as they were non-functional due to fdisk
       interface changes, and do not make sense anymore as we can expect users
       to mount any such filesystem on their own, to then use a filesystem
       method instead. Prompted by Helmut Grohne <[hidden email]>.
     - Remove cdrom method superseded by the multi_cd method.
     - Remove nfs methods, as there is nothing special about NFS, and mounting
       these should just be left to the local admin, who can mount any other
       remote filesystem too.
     - Remove multi_mount method, as the multi_cd method can take care of
       mounting the necessary images or devices.
     - Replace changelog with correct copyright in file header.
   * dpkg, dselect: Stop using first-person singular in output messages.
   * libdpkg: Fix memory leak in parsedb context close.
   * buildtools.mk: Add QMAKE variable. Closes: #920878
   * po: Fix translation of --compare-versions. Closes: #951614
     Thanks to Boyuan Yang <[hidden email]>.
   * Perl modules:
     - Dpkg::Source::Package: Verify original tarball signatures at build time.
     - Dpkg::BuildFlags: Add new unset() method.
       Requested by Daniel Schepler <[hidden email]>.
     - Dpkg::Source::Package::V2: Emit a special patch header on
