 dbus (1.13.12-2) experimental; urgency=medium
   * Add bug number to 1.13.12-1 changelog entry
   * Merge packaging changes from unstable
   * d/p/tests-Skip-system-bus-test-if-we-are-root-but-messagebus-.patch,
     Fix test failures when build-time tests are run as root (in
     particular this happens when the CI pipeline runs reprotest)
 dbus (1.12.16-2) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Add bug number to previous changelog entry
   * Standards-Version: 4.4.1 (no changes required)
     - Note that dbus-user-session still has its previous dependencies,
       and has deliberately not been switched to the new default-logind
       virtual package. dbus-user-session relies on systemd --user: it
       is not enough to have systemd-logind or a compatible replacement
       like elogind.
   * d/dbus.init: Work around #940971 in libnss-systemd.
     If we are booting with a non-systemd init but libnss-systemd is still
     installed, tell libnss-systemd not to try to connect to dbus-daemon,
     which is never going to work well from inside dbus-daemon.
   * dbus.postinst: Append dbus to /run/reboot-required.pkgs on upgrade
     (Closes: #867263)
 dbus (1.12.16-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream stable release
     - CVE-2019-12749: Do not attempt to carry out DBUS_COOKIE_SHA1
       authentication for identities that differ from the user running the
       DBusServer. Previously, a local attacker could manipulate symbolic
       links in their own home directory to bypass authentication and
       connect to a DBusServer with elevated privileges. The standard
       system and session dbus-daemons in their default configuration were
       immune to this attack because they did not allow DBUS_COOKIE_SHA1,
       but third-party users of DBusServer such as Upstart could be
       vulnerable. (Closes: #930375)
 dbus (1.12.14-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream release
     - Improve fd limit handling so that system services launched by
       traditional activation get the intended limit (Closes: #928877)
   * d/rules, d/tests: Run automated tests with DBUS_TEST_MALLOC_FAILURES=0.
     Testing the code paths for memory allocation failures is too slow
     to do routinely as a downstream.
   * d/tests/system-bus: Add a smoke-test for traditional activation,
     and a smoke-test for systemd activation on systems booted with systemd.
 dbus (1.12.12-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   [ Ritesh Raj Sarraf ]
   * Explicitly set session and test socket directory to /tmp, instead
     of using a (possibly non-standard) TMPDIR
   [ Simon McVittie ]
   * New upstream stable release
   * d/tests/build: Mark as superficial (see #904979)
   * d/tests/build: Comment why we don't test or support static linking
     here (it's because libsystemd doesn't)
   * Standards-Version: 4.2.1 (no changes required)
   * d/p/dbus-daemon-test-Don-t-test-fd-limits-if-in-an-unprivileg.patch:
     Add proposed patch to skip fd limit tests if we are uid 0 but do not
     have CAP_SYS_RESOURCE (Closes: #908092)
   * dbus: Drop dependency on lsb-base. It is only needed when booting
     with sysvinit and initscripts, but initscripts already Depends on
     lsb-base (see #864999).
   * dbus: Add Provides: dbus-system-bus and Provides: dbus-bin.
     This provides a way to split the package in a later Debian version
     or in derivatives. dbus-system-bus represents the well-known system
     bus facility (/lib/systemd/system/dbus.service and /etc/init.d/dbus),
     while dbus-bin represents the availability of executables like
     dbus-daemon and dbus-send.
   * d/tests/system-bus: Add a smoke-test for the system bus
 dbus (1.12.10-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream release
     - Drop patches that were applied upstream
   * Standards-Version: 4.1.5 (no changes required)
   * Don't run the build-time tests for the debug build in parallel.
     Some of the tests added by the debug build start many processes,
     and the debug build's tests have intermittently been timing out on
     reproducible-builds infrastructure, possibly because these machines
     run with a high "make -j" value and more than one multi-processing
     test gets run at the same time.
 dbus (1.12.8-3) unstable; urgency=medium
   * d/rules: If tests fail, continue to run all tests before reporting
   * d/rules: On success or failure, output all test logs for comparison
     (in particular this lets us see how close we are to arbitrary
     timeouts on slower architectures)
   * d/p/debian/tests-Multiply-timeouts-by-20-on-riscv64.patch:
     Compensate for the riscv64 port being bootstrapped on
     qemu-system-riscv64 by multiplying arbitrary timeouts by 20
     (Closes: #897607)
   * d/rules: Use nss_wrapper to ensure that and localhost
     can be resolved successfully, fixing build-time tests in pbuilder
     with the network namespace unshared (see #897662)
   * d/rules: Make sure the X11 DISPLAY (if any) doesn't leak into the
     test environment, fixing build-time tests if /tmp is unshared
   * d/p/sysdeps-unix-Handle-errors-from-getaddrinfo-correctly.patch:
     Add patch from upstream dbus-1.12 branch to fix getaddrinfo error
     reporting for tcp: and nonce-tcp: transports
   * d/p/server-oom-test-Parse-the-address-instead-of-going-direct.patch,
     Add patches from upstream dbus-1.12 branch to improve test robustness
     and coverage when getaddrinfo doesn't work
 dbus (1.12.8-2) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Remove debian/dbus-tests.shlibs.local. It was useful before 1.11.10-2
     to make dbus-tests depend on the debug build in dbus-1-dbg, but now
     that the debug build is itself in dbus-tests, making dbus-tests
     depend on itself is not useful. It also suppressed the generated
     dependency on libdbus-1-3 (= ${binary:Version}), causing autopkgtest
     failures when only dbus-tests was upgraded.
 dbus (1.12.8-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream stable release
   * Standards-Version: 4.1.4 (no changes required)
   * tests: Use AUTOPKGTEST_TMP in preference to deprecated ADTTMP
   * tests: Make sure $HOME is set to somewhere we can write (workaround for
   * Build ducktype documentation, unless building with nodoc
     - Build-depend on ducktype and yelp-tools
 dbus (1.12.6-2) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream stable release 1.12.6
   * d/tests/root: Re-run test-dbus-daemon as root, since it now contains
     tests that are skipped as non-root
   * There was no 1.12.6-1 due to a mistake with `git tag`
