 fvwm-crystal (3.0.5.dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release (Closes: #431368)
      + drop 02debianmenu.dpatch which has been applied upstream
      + add 02userdirectory.dpatch to keep ~/.fvwm as user directory
        instead of ~/.fvwm-crystal which is the new upstream default; add a
        note about this in README.Debian
      + add manual pages for fvwm-crystal.mplayer-wrapper and
        fvwm-crystal.infoline, two new helpers
   * Adopt/hijack fvwm-crystal (Closes: #468644). Thanks to Michael for his
     previous work
   * Acknowledge previous NMUs (Closes: #383413, #375205, #399836)
   * debian/control:
      + update Standards-Version to 3.8.0
      + do not recommend xmms and xmms related utilities any more, add
        audacious instead (Closes: #474448, #468394)
      + depends on rxvt-unicode | x-terminal-emulator instead of a lot of
        terminals (Closes: #401822)

   * debian/rules:
      + factor manual pages creation
      + move fvwm-crystal.generate-menu to examples
      + include /usr/share/dpatch/dpatch.make
      + remove bogus manual pages whose content is already present in
   * Remove empty /usr/sbin directory
   * Adjust section of doc-base files
   * Rewrite using a Python script to speed
     things up. We avoid a lot of shell invocations and we fix most bugs
     (Closes: #374311, #429855). Some menu entries may still fail because
     we don't invoke a shell while this is most of the time useless but
     this does not report an error. Moreover, we allow creation of icons as
     non root user (Closes: #386462)
   * Add debian/watch file
