Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.19, Package name: ddrescue-1.19, Maintainer: ef

GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block
device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying hard to rescue data in case
of read errors.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for sysutils category

Problems found with existing digests:
	Package memconf distfile memconf-2.16/memconf.gz
	b6f4b736cac388dddc5070670351cf7262aba048 [recorded]
	95748686a5ad8144232f4d4abc9bf052721a196f [calculated]

Problems found locating distfiles:
	Package dc-tools: missing distfile dc-tools/abs0-dc-burn-netbsd-1.5-0-gae55ec9
	Package ipw-firmware: missing distfile ipw2100-fw-1.2.tgz

	Package nvnet: missing distfile nvnet-netbsd-src-20050620.tgz
	Package syslog-ng: missing distfile syslog-ng-3.7.2.tar.gz

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

        * rescuebook.cc (copy_non_tried): Do not mark skipped blocks as
          non-trimmed. Try them in additional passes (before trimming).
        * rescuebook.cc: Limit the copying phase to 3 passes.
        * rescuebook.cc: Alternate direction of passes during copying phase.
        * rescuebook.cc: Smallest blocks are trimmed first.
        * Skip on the first error during the copying phase.
        * rescuebook.cc: Trimming done in one pass, may be run in reverse.
        * The splitting phase has been replaced by a scraping phase.

Update to 1.17. Changes:

        * Added new option '-l, --logfile-size'.
        * Added new option '-w, --ignore-write-errors'.
        * Option '--fill' has been renamed to '--fill-mode'.
        * Option '--generate-logfile' has been renamed to '--generate-mode'.
        * Added option '--sector-size' as a synonym of '--block-size'.
        * Added option '--retries' as a synonym of '--max-retries'.
        * Added option '--size' as a synonym of '--max-size'.
        * rescuebook.cc: Trimming is now done from both edges of each
          non-trimmed block. Largest blocks are trimmed first.
        * rescuebook.cc: Largest blocks are now split first until
          logfile reaches '--logfile-size' entries.
        * logbook.cc (extend_sblock_vector, truncate_vector): Terminate
          if truncation would discard finished blocks.
        * rescuebook.cc: Mark failed blocks with 1 sector as bad-sector.
        * logbook.cc (extend_sblock_vector): Remove last block of
          logfile if it starts at isize and is not marked as finished.
        * Documented that 'direct disc access' only reads whole sectors.

Update to 1.16.  Changes:

* Added new option '-K, --skip-size'.
* Added new option '-T, --timeout'.
* Maximum skip size is now limited to 1% of infile size or 1 GiB.
* Set current_pos to end of block when reading backwards.
* The '-E, --max-error-rate' option now checks the rate of actually
  failed reads, not the growth of error size.

Log message:
Update to 1.15 (not really tested), on the theory that there's no
reason to run old upstream code.

Changes in version 1.15:

The new option "-a, --min-read-rate" has been added.

The new option "-I, --verify-input-size" has been added.

The new option "-x, --extend-outfile" has been added.

Ddrescue now verifies that infile, outfile and logfile are all
different.

Non-tried blocks are now read aligned to cluster-size sectors.

The "split or skip" algorithm of the split pass has been improved.

A spurious warning about "-D" being ignored in fill mode has been
removed.

Ddrescuelog, a tool for manipulation, display, conversion, comparison
and testing of ddrescue logfiles, has been added.

Log message:
Update to 1.11, provided by Mustafa Dogan in private mail.

Changes in version 1.11:

In case of error writing the logfile to disc, the user is now given the
possibility of fixing the problem and continue.

The splitting algorithm has been modified to read secuentially the areas
smaller than a threshold size.

After every read error, ddrescue now verifies the input file has not
disappeared.

In rescue mode, ddrescue now shows the time elapsed from the last
successful read.

Signals SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 are now ignored by ddrescue.

Descriptions of "--direct", "--synchronous" and \ 
"--sparse" in the manual
have been made clearer.

Description of rescue algorithm in the manual has been made clearer.

"make check" now verifies that files are open in binary mode.

A warning about logfile usage has been added to "ddrescue --help" output.

1.10:
Changes: The option "--try-again" has been added. The size skipped
when bad sectors are found has been made independent of "cluster-size".
Rescue speed has been improved for large log files. An overflow
reading from devices of undefined size has been fixed. "make
install-info" should now work on Debian and Mac OS X.

1.9
Changes: The new option "--domain-logfile" has been added. Verbosity
control of user messages has been simplified. This release improves
portability by using the LLONG_MAX macro instead of LONG_LONG_MAX.
This release is also available in lzip format.
