debconf 1.5.42ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


debconf (1.5.42ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian.  Remaining changes:
    - Do not show "Cancel" or "Close" buttons, to avoid breaking
      maintainer scripts.
  * Ubuntu's dpkg-query still uses ${PackageSpec} for multiarch support
    rather than the newer ${binary:Package}.  Support this as well for now.
