   * Acknowledge NMUs. (Closes: #441473)
   * Add support for SAX parser priorities.
     + lower the XML::SAX::PurePerl priority so that it will not be the
       default parser anymore if any others are available. (Closes: #430118)
   * Move the /etc/perl/XML/SAX/ParserDetails.d directory under
     /var/lib/libxml-sax-perl, since it's not really configuration data.
   * Use ucf to manage local changes to /etc/perl/XML/SAX/ParserDetails.ini.
   * Remove the pre-sarge preinst cleanup of /etc/XML and /etc/perl/SAX
     introduced in 0.12-3.
     + Now survives systems with a leftover symlink /etc/perl/XML -> .
       (Closes: #240356)
   * Point to the compressed file in XML::SAX::save_parsers(). (Closes: #332440)

     description. (Closes: #420867)
   * Upgrade to debhelper compatibility level 5.
   * Upgrade to Standards-Version 3.7.2. No changes needed.
   * Don't install the upstream README file, there's no information in it.
   * Update debian/copyright.
   * Add explanations in the examples to clarify why they look like
     stray maintainer scripts. (Closes: #295398)
   * Various improvements in debian/rules.
     + remove generated files in the 'clean' target.
   * Update debian/watch.
   * Move the examples under debian/, they are Debian-specific.

     + charset-decoding: Fix charset decoding in the PurePerl module (#405186)
     + parserdetails-debian: The Debian way of handling ParserDetails.ini
     + skip-test-with-nonfree-file: skip tests in t/16large.t depending on
       a non-free input file.
   * Move update-perl-sax-parsers under debian/ in the source package, it's
   * Remove an unused Debian modification: XML::SAX->load_parsers() doesn't
     accept the '$file' argument anymore.
   * README.Debian: add a pointer to the CPAN FAQ entry on uninstalling local
     modules. Thanks to Streph Treadway <>. (Closes: #229178)
   * Make update-perl-sax-parsers bail out with an informative error message
     if there's a locally installed XML::SAX module breaking the installation.
     (See #229178)
   * Repackage the upstream tarball to remove the non-free
     testfiles/xmltest.xml file. (Closes: #452872)
   * Add the Homepage, Vcs-Svn and Vcs-Browser fields to debian/control.
   * Upload to experimental for now because of the scope of the changes.
     Test reports welcome, including 'it works for me'.
   [ Damyan Ivanov ]
   * Move $(QUILT_STAMPFN) dependency from build to build-stamp
   * Add XS-DM-Upload-Allowed: yes to debian/control so Niko Tyni can exercise
     his DM powers :)
