dpkg (1.14.28) stable; urgency=low

  * Another round of updates concerning new source formats:
    - fix dpkg-source to not complain on binary files that are ignored and are
      not going to be included in the debian tarball of a "3.0 (quilt)" source
      package. Closes: #524375
    - let dpkg-source fail if several upstream orig.tar files are
      available (using different compression scheme) since we don't know
      which one to use.
    - before accepting to build a 3.0 (quilt) source packages, ensure that
      debian/patches is a directory (or non-existing) and that
      debian/patches/series is a file (or non-existing). Closes: #557618
    - modify implementation of "3.0 (quilt)" source format to not be
      behave differently depending on whether quilt is installed or not.
      The option --without-quilt is thus gone and dpkg-source creates and
      relies on the .pc directory to know whether patches are applied or
      not. Closes: #557667

dpkg (1.14.27) stable; urgency=low

  * Cherry-pick some fixes from squeeze concerning new source formats:
    - dpkg-source now accepts additional tarballs (in format "3.0 (quilt)")
      with a "component" name containing dashes. Closes: #524376
    - ensure that the automatic patch created in format "3.0 (quilt)" is
      always well registered with quilt even when it's updated by a new call
      to dpkg-source. Thanks to Goswin von Brederlow for the initial patch.
      Closes: #525858
    - do not update/create debian/patches/.dpkg-source-applied during build,
      it's only meant to document what patches have been applied at extraction
      time. Closes: #525835
    - call quilt only once to apply all patches instead of once per patch
      when building 3.0 (quilt) source packages. Closes: #518453

dpkg (1.14.26) unstable; urgency=low

glib2.0 (2.16.6-3) stable; urgency=low

  * SECURITY: 13_permissions_CVE-2009-3289.patch:
    + The g_file_copy function in glib 2.0 sets the permissions of a 
      target file to the permissions of a symbolic link (777), which 
      allows user-assisted local users to modify files of other users, 
      as demonstrated by using Nautilus to modify the permissions of the 
      user home directory.
    + Concatenation of 3 upstream patches, fixes CVE-2009-3289.
