2008-02-21  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucfq (process):
		  srivasta@debian.org--lenny/ucf--devel--3.0--patch-2 Niko
		  Tyni says ucfq /path/to/file never gives any output. It
		  looks like the problem is that ^/ is matched twice with
		  the global option (m//g) on the filename in
		  ucf::process(), so the second one fails looking for the
		  next match.  I don't see the need for global match here,
		  and removing the /g fixesthis for me.
	  (report): srivasta@debian.org--lenny/ucf--devel--3.0--patch-2
		  Major changes to ensure that the modified column
		  actually contains a valid value. This whole script needs
		  a rewrite.

2007-11-30  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf (newsum):
		  srivasta@debian.org--lenny/ucf--devel--3.0--patch-1 For
		  "keep current" and "threeway merge", ucf expects answers
		  from debconf which differ from what is specified in the
		  template master. Frans Pop suggested using the Choices-C
		  feature of debconf, which is relatively new, but defines
		  a fixed alias for each option which Debconf will then
		  use in db_get and db_set operations -- so no more
		  matching the template in the code.

2007-09-19  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf (choice_keep_current):
		  srivasta@debian.org--lenny/ucf--devel--3.0--base-0
		  Change the name to fit the changed template

2007-05-05  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf (show_diff):
		  srivasta@debian.org--lenny/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-1
		  Users using a Graphical frontend are surprised when the
		  display apparently just blocks when they ask to see a
		  diff (or 3-way diff) of the configuration file being
		  handled, when actually the diff is  displayed on the
		  terminal window ucf was run on. Until the debconf-escape
		  utility and the escape CAPB support, db_subst ran into
		  newline and line length issues. Patch from Michael Vogt.

2007-04-17  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf.1: srivasta@debian.org--lenny/ucf--devel--2.0--base-0
		  Document that ucf now tries to preserve owner/permission
		  bits for the file.

	* ucf: srivasta@debian.org--lenny/ucf--devel--2.0--base-0 As far
		  as possible, preserve file attributes like ownership and
		  permission by using cp -pf instead of just cp -f.

2007-02-25  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucfr (safe_conf_file):
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--versionfix-4
		  Reincorporate the fix from the NMU. Add a space before
		  the echo.

2007-02-24  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--versionfix-3
		  Add documentation clarifying the primary use for ucf. 

	* ucfr (safe_conf_file):
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--versionfix-2
		  Add $progname: prefix to all error messages. 

2007-01-18  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucfr.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--versionfix-1
		  Emphasize that the full path to the configuration file
		  is expected.  

	* ucfq.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--versionfix-1
		  Ditto. 

	* ucfr (safe_conf_file):
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--versionfix-1
		  Issue a diagnostic, and exit gracefully if the
		  registration request has not provided a full path to the
		  configuration file. For lenny, the graceful exit shall
		  be changed into die with a error message. 

	* ucfq (process):
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--versionfix-1
		  Issue a diagnostic, and exit gracefully if the query has
		  not provided a full path to the configuration file. For
		  lenny, the  graceful exit shall be changed into die with
		  a error message. 

	* ucf: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-20 Typo
		  fix. 

	* ucf.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-20 Typo
		  fix. 

2006-11-16  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucfr.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-18 Typo
		  fixes: cofiguration -> configuration, asociating ->
		  associating, mutiple -> multiple

	* ucfq.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-18 Typo
		  Fix: modfied -> modified 

	* ucf.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-18 Typo
		  fix:  "witht he" -> "with the"

2006-10-23  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf (TEMP): srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-17
		  Use readlink to canonicalize the path names presented to
		  ucf. This ensures that we keep track of information
		  about the correct file in ucf, even if it is referred to
		  differently (like, multiple ///s, or a/../a/) 

	* ucfq: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-16 The
		  package name is ucf, not Ucf. Fixes the usage help
		  output. 

2006-09-11  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf.1 (needed):
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-15 Typo fix.

2006-08-20  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-14
		  Document various extensions optionally used by ucf to
		  store copies of versions of configuration files ucf is
		  working with. 

2006-06-16  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf (safe_dest_file):
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-12
		  Improve the handling of finding a sensible pager.  This
		  now handles a messed up /etc/alternatives/paper
		  setting. Also included sensible pager as an
		  alternative, and fall back to /bin/more if
		  needed.  Also, allow for readlink failures.

2006-04-11  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-8 Added
		  documentation for the --state-dir option. 

	* ucfr.1: Documentation for the new command ucfr

	* ucfr: New file. Associates, and disassociates, a package name
		  with configuration files.

	* Makefile (check):
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-8 Added
		  a check for ucfr 
		  (install):
			  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-8
			  Install ucfr and manual page as well 

	* ucf (NEW_SUFFIX):
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-7 Added
		  new variables to hold the suffix we use todenote the
		  {maintainers, old, new} versions of a file. Used to be
		  dpkg-{dist,old,new}, now it is ucf-{dist,old,new}.

2005-09-20  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf (newsum): srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-4
		  Added support for side-by-side diffs, This is very
		  similar to doing a standard diff, apart from calling
		  sdiff instead (and change the option switches around as
		  needed. 

2005-09-01  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* examples/postrm:
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-2 only
		  use ucf if it is available 

2005-08-08  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-1 Add code
		  to determine the value of UCF_FORCE_CONFFMISS, looking
		  at the command line, env variable, config file, or
		  default (the default being unset). No command line
		  option is currently available, but the underpinning are
		  there. Replace the destination file, if missing, and iff
		  the variable is set. 

	* ucf.1: srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--2.0--patch-1
		  Document  UCF_FORCE_CONFFMISS. This environment variable
		  is only  applicable when the installed destination file
		  does not exist (perhaps due to user removal),and forces
		  ucf to recreate the missing file (the default behaviour
		  is to honor the users wishes and not recreate the
		  locally deleted file).  

2005-06-25  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

	* ucf (safe_dest_file):
		  srivasta@debian.org--etch/ucf--devel--0.1--base-0 Well,
		  setting VERBOSE to 0 is the same as being quiet,
		  according to the man page. Unfortunately, the code
		  actually looked to see if VERBOSE was set (even if set
		  to 0). Now, we unset  VERBOSE if the user had set it to
		  0, making everyone happy.
