package: piuparts
severity: wishlist


until 0.36 piuparts used to only ignore files left over after purge 
in /tmp/scripts, I've just changed that to also ignore stuff in /tmp.

It might be useful to add a --pedantic-purge-check option or such.

 piuparts   - .deb package installation, upgrading, and removal testing tool
Closes: 440151 466043 466049 466118 519192 528266 539142 545907 547379 559449
 piuparts (0.38) unstable; urgency=low
     - Add support for using LVM snapshots. Thanks to
       Patrick Schoenfeld for the patch. (Closes: #559449)
     - Add support for warning on broken symlinks. Thanks to Carl Chenet for
       the patch. (Closes: #440151)
     - Make --help usuable without needing to be run as root. (Closes: #547379)
     - --skip-minimize is now the default. This is because debootstrap is called
       with --variant=minbase instead of --resolv-deps now and because if a
       base.tgz or an lvm snapshot is specified, piuparts should not touch it.
       (Closes: #539142)
       Introduce a new option, --minimize, to minimize a chroot with debfoster.
       (This is the old default behaviour. In future versions the --minimize
       option might be removed again.)
     - Add two new options: --keyring to specify the keyring to use with
       debootstrap (defaults to /usr/share/keyrings/debian-archive-keyring.gpg)
       and --do-not-verify-signatures to not use --keyring with debootstrap.
       (Closes: #545907)
       In the chroots, APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated is set accordingly in
     - Add new option, --pedantic-purge-test, to tell piuparts to be pedantic
       when checking if a purged package leaves files behind. If this option is
       not set, files left in /tmp are ignored. (Closes: #528266)
     - Add new option, --dpkg-force-confdef, to make dpkg use --force-confdev,
       which lets dpkg always choose the default action when a modified conffile
       is found. This options will make piuparts ignore errors it was designed
       to report and therefore should only be used to hide problems in
       dependent packages. (Closes: #466118)
     - Add another type of custom-scripts, post_setup_, which are executed after
       the chroot was setup. (Closes: #466043)
     - Create policy-rc.d in 2nd chroot when using -b. (Closes: #466049)
       Thanks again to Patrick Schoenfeld for his help.
   * piuparts-report: report broken symlinks.
   * piuparts-slave:
     - gracefully deal with upgrade-test-distros and upgrade-test-chroot-tgz
       not being set in the configuration. Thanks to Carl Chenet and Patrick
       Schoenfeld for the patch. (Closes: #519192)
     - new default value for idle-sleep, 300 instead of 10 seconds. Also the
       slave will now only sleep if there is nothing to do for any section.
   * Makefile: workaround 559305 by calling a2x twice.
   * Update debian/NEWS.
   * Replace all references to sarge and etch with ones to lenny and squeeze.
