Ok, additional small fixes have made it into upstream's git tree and therefore I present you etckeeper 0.14ubuntu1, with the following changes since etckeeper 0.11, which has been partly ACKed above.

etckeeper (0.14ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low

  [ Daniel Hahler ]
  * bzr: Set nickname for tree in init.d/40vcs-init.
  * Add script to add new files during "commit" for bzr (commit.d/30bzr-add).
  * Fix handling of files with spaces, by setting IFS to "newline" in
  * Modify Maintainer value to match the DebianMaintainerField

  [ Jelmer Vernooij ]
  * Remove pointless commit.d/40bzr-rm script.

  * All changes are pulled from upstream's git repository.

etckeeper (0.14) unstable; urgency=low

  * When deleting the .metadata, only $VCS rm it if using git. hg write
    locks the repo when the pre-commit hook is running, so it would lock.

etckeeper (0.13) unstable; urgency=low

  * Drop the debconf prompt before committing in pre-install.
    Closes: #470577, #462161, #471157, #462161
  * Stop using metastore, instead add shell commands to .etckeeper
    to handle permissions. Patch by Scott Bronson. The main advantages
    of this approach are:
    - .etckeeper uses less disk space than .metadata.
    - Git diff includes changes to the commands in the file, which is more
      transparent than a change to the binary .metadata file, and does not
      produce conflicts during merging.
    - Revision control directories such as .hg are filtered out.
      Closes: #471371
    Note that repositories still including .metadata files will be
    automatically transitioned, and the file removed. Also, etckeeper init
    on a historical version of a repository that still contains .metadata
    will use it, if metastore is installed.
  * Keep track of what packages change state during an installation,
    and include that in the commit message at the end. Closes: #459384

etckeeper (0.12) unstable; urgency=low

  * Use git ls-files instead of git status. Depend on new enough git for this.
  * Add support for bzr, thanks to Mark A. Hershberger. Closes: #470515
    (Note that bzr does not support etckeeper's pre-commit hook.)
