debconf 1.5.63 source package in Ubuntu


debconf (1.5.63) unstable; urgency=medium

  * "Change directory to / before executing maintainer scripts" from 1.5.62
    was too intrusive due to changing Debconf::ConfModule, and broke some
    existing maintainer scripts that e.g. ran ucf with relative paths.
    Instead, just chdir to / before running maintainer scripts in
    dpkg-reconfigure and chdir back afterwards (closes: #608648).
  * In the Gnome frontend, hide the cancel button, and prompt for
    confirmation when the close button is pressed (closes: #501767).
    Original idea by Michael Vogt with an amendment by Joey Hess; some code
    by Martin Pitt.
