Closes: 689955 691351 691942 696523 699938 708884
 apt-cacher (1.7.8) unstable; urgency=low
   * Use sed to insert version number when building, therefore no need
     to Build-Depend on perl any more.
   * Only write body to cached file on success (200).
   * Rework handling of If-Modified request response. Client errors also
     count as EXPIRED. Delete cached files in these circumstances (closes:
   * return_file() never returns a retry code, so don't test for it.
   * Update debian/control file description. Integrate experimental features
     (multi-distro, Debian Bugs SOAP and HTTPS CONNECT) as established.
   * Add Ubuntu 14.04 codename 'Trusty'.
 apt-cacher (1.7.7) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add Ubuntu 13.10 codename 'Saucy'.
   * Update to Standards version 3.9.4 (no changes).
   * Use /proc/self/fd directly rather than rely on /dev/fd which can be
     missing (closes: #699938).
   * In precache script, make example to generate fake package list
     architecture aware by using Dpkg::Arch. Add Suggests dependency on
     libdpkg-perl (closes: #696523).
   * Remove obsolete patch from patches/.
   * Use new function cache_size() to obtain cache usage for configuration
     item disk_usage_limit. Store cache size in shared mem and recaclulate
     on a sliding scale from 0-20 seconds (closes: #689955).
   * Don't use verbose _flock() in write_error_log() as it just makes
     debug logs too full.
   * Handle missing Last-Modified header: use the Date header to
     generate the If-Modified request.
   * Add Ubuntu 13.04 codename 'raring'.
   * Add Italian debconf translation. File from Beatrice Torracca
     (closes: #691351).
   * Added Japenese debconf translation from victory
     <> (closes: #691942).
