lsb 9.20150917ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


lsb (9.20150917ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Merge from Debian unstable, remaining changes:
    - Add 01-upstart-lsb hook, to make executing rc.d scripts no-op if
    there is an upstart job for that script.

  * Dropped changes, merged upstream:
    - Drop pyshared usage, well, dist-packages symlinks are in place.
    - lsb-$foo packages are gone, hence dependencies/m-a changes are
    irrelevant now.
    - python3 port is accepted in Debian, and used by default.
    - tests pass under Ubuntu
    - status_of_proc operations are correct in Debian now too. However,
    mostly irrelevant to us, as on most systems systemd determines status
    for us anyway.

lsb (9.20150917) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Demote Build-Depends from python3-all-dev to python3-all (Closes: #799210)

lsb (9.20150826) unstable; urgency=low

  * Drop all the LSB compatibility packages besides lsb-release and lsb-base
    - Drop packages-availability checking in lsb-release
    - Truncate README.Debian to a minimum
    - Document this in lsb-base.NEWS.Debian
  * Change the versioning number to avoid any ambiguity; use joeyh's, with version being Debian next stable's

lsb (4.1+Debian14) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Alexandre Detiste ]
  * Convert packaging to Debhelper 9
  * Port to python3, keep compatibility symlink for
    (Closes: #719063)

  [ Mert Dirik ]
  * Add Turkish translation of lsb debconf messages (Closes: #757509)

  [ Didier Raboud ]
  * Add gbp.conf
  * Rework the releases codename handling:
    - Depend and Build-Depend on distro-info-data, and populate the
      RELEASES_CODENAME_LOOKUP from that reference
    - Drop meaningless tests trying to compare random release names
  * Make sure '-proposed-updates' don't sort before unstable
  * Actuall ignore suites when guessing the release from apt
  * Fix comparison of testing codename (Closes: #691744)
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 without changes needed

lsb (4.1+Debian13+nmu1) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Ondřej Surý]
  * Non-maintainer upload with maintainer agreement
  * Change libjpeg62 dependency to libjpeg62-turbo (Closes: #766023)

lsb (4.1+Debian13) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * test/ also, make lsb_release ignore dpkg origins for
    the test, otherwise the test fails on derivatives.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Use open() rather than file() in, for Python 3 compatibility
    (see LP #1035136)
  * Test fileob and strob against None in RFC822Parser.__init__ rather than
    testing their truth value, to avoid a misleading error in the case of a
    file with no LSB headers

  [ Adam Conrad ]
  * Allow lsb-printing to depend on cups-filters | ghostscript-cups

  [ Didier Raboud ]
  * Revert "Fix the remaining problems of python3 compatibility"
    (Closes: #743903)
  * Allow multiarch alternatives of libc6-i386 and lib32z1.
    Thanks to Michael Biebl (Closes: #748426)

  [ Marcel Partap ]
  * In lsb_release, don't forget CODENAME when it's testing; therefore stop
  * calling apt-cache policy again (Closes: #747413)

lsb (4.1+Debian12) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Depend directly on libnss3 and libnspr4 rather than via the
    transitional packages libnss3-1d and libnspr4-0d.

  [ Didier Raboud ]
  * Drop one more unnecessary use of /bin/echo -n.
  * Fix lsb_release to correctly work with stable release updates
    incrementing the second digit from Wheezy on. (Closes: #711174)

lsb-base: Linux Standard Base init script functionality

 The Linux Standard Base ( is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 This package only includes the init-functions shell library, which
 may be used by other packages' initialization scripts for console
 logging and other purposes.

lsb-release: Linux Standard Base version reporting utility

 The Linux Standard Base ( is a standard
 core system that third-party applications written for Linux can
 depend upon.
 The lsb-release command is a simple tool to help identify the Linux
 distribution being used and its compliance with the Linux Standard Base.
 LSB conformance will not be reported unless the required metapackages are
 While it is intended for use by LSB packages, this command may also
 be useful for programmatically distinguishing between a pure Debian
 installation and derived distributions.
