rssreader.app (0.6.2.dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.
    + Doesn't segfault on startup anymore (Closes: #385239).
    + Fixes various hangups when adding a feed (Closes: #310979).
  * Urgency set to low instead of medium since it is a new upstream
    release with a lot of changes.
  * Acknowledge NMU, thanks Luk Claes (Closes: #352392, #356538).
  * Repackage the upstream tarball, removing the RSSKit documentation; it
    currently has no license. The app was renamed to Grr (Günther's RSS
    Reader), but the Debian source/binary packages remain the same.
  * Split the package and build three more binary packages --
    rsskit.framework, librrskit0 and librsskit0-dev.
  * Add debian/rsskit.framework.README.Debian explaining the reason for the
  * Build-depend on libgnustep-gui-dev, instead of libgnustep-gui0.10-dev.
  * Upgrade to debhelper v5, adjust the build-dependancy accordingly and bump
  * Pass "-LRSSKit/shared_obj" to the linker in order to find the shared
    libs, thanks to Damyan Ivanov for the hint.
  * Append "messages=yes" to $(MAKE) in order to track curious build
    failures on the autobuilders.
  * Rework the long description to fix a lintian warning, also mention
    the new name and fix the Homepage.
  * Escape Gürkan's and upstream author's names in the manpage to fix a
    lintian warning; rename it to Grr.1 and substitute the name accordingly.
  * Remove debian/dirs and debian/docs, split the latter into
  * Include /usr/share/GNUstep/debian/config.mk in debian/rules.
  * Move Resources to /usr/share/GNUstep/Grr.app and make a compatibility
  * Replace the symlynk to /usr/bin/gnustep-app-wrapper with
    $(GS_SYSTEM_ROOT)/Makefiles/gnustep-app-wrapper, the former will
    be removed after the release of Etch.
  * Add icon to debian/menu and a hint as well. Build-depend on
    imagemagick for the conversion to .xpm format.
  * [debian/copyright]: Clarify that the license is GPLv2 only,
    unfortunately, and change the link to point to it. Add the standard
    blurb as well. List the FSF as additional copyright holder and
    include a notice about RSSKit/GNUmakefile, which appears to be under
    LGPL (probably a yanking mistake upstream).
  * Add myself to Uploaders: as agreed with the maintainer.
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.7.2, no changes needed.
