Branch: CURRENT, Version:, Package name: etckeeper-, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

etckeeper is a collection of tools to let /etc be stored in a git,
mercurial, darcs, or bzr repository. It hooks into apt (and other
package managers including yum and pacman-g2) to automatically commit
changes made to /etc during package upgrades. It tracks file metadata
that revison control systems do not normally support, but that is
important for /etc, such as the permissions of /etc/shadow.
It's quite modular and configurable, while also being simple to use
if you understand the basics of working with revision control.

Log message:
etckeeper: Fix pkglint warnings, fix "grep" typo from 2013, bump revision

Plus, the file commit.d/20store-metadata had not been included in the
package, probably by accident. Regenerating cf-files.mk restored it.

Log message:
Sort PLIST files.

Unsorted entries in PLIST files have generated a pkglint warning for at
least 12 years. Somewhat more recently, pkglint has learned to sort
PLIST files automatically. Since pkglint 5.4.23, the sorting is only
done in obvious, simple cases. These have been applied by running:

  pkglint -Cnone,PLIST -Wnone,plist-sort -r -F

Log message:
Revert patch to "be silent if there's nothing to commit." Upstream
recommends using `etckeeper unclean` to determine if there are any
changes in need of committing, which works with every VCS that
etckeeper supports. Bump PKGREVISION.

Log message:
Update to From the changelog:

* New upstream release:
  * merged Makefile patch
  * update standards version, no change
* Remove pre-compiled .pyc for bzr plugin from Debian package,
  and add python:Depends to Depends so that dh_python2 will install
  maintainer script snippets. Unfortunately, this adds a completely
  unnecessary dependency on python, which etckeeper does not need in
  normal operation.
* Make etckeeper commit store metadata changes. The pre-commit
  hook has always (and continues) to do that, but pre-commit is only
  run when there are changes to tommit. This makes metadata-only
  changes get committed.
* Move systemd files to /lib/systemd; /usr/lib/systemd is not used
  on Debian.
* Optimised find for special and hard linked files.
  Thanks, Rike-Benjamin Schuppner.
* Adjust when Pacman 5 calls etckeeper hooks.
  Thanks, Tilman Blumenbach and Christian Hesse.
* Only run Pacman hooks when files in /etc have changed.
  Thanks, Christian Hesse.
* Added systemd timer that can run etckeeper 10 minutes after boot, and also
  daily. It's not enabled by default, partly because of overlap with the
  cron job.
  Thanks, Christian Hesse.
* Added support for pacmatic, contributed by nicolaichuk.
* bzr: make sure EMAIL is defined
  Thanks, Serge E. Hallyn
* Fix Makefile version patterns to ignore non-native version number
  (Antoine Beaupré)
* Support ~/.config/git/config when determining the author name and email.
  Thanks, Richard Savio
* Added support for Arch's pacman package manager version 5.
  Thanks, Tilman Blumenbach.
* Set HOME if it's not set, as is the case when using ubuntu's
* Move bash completion out of etc and into usr.
* Prepare upload to Debian unstable
* Fix Makefile version patterns to ignore non-native version number
* Fix lintian warnings:
  * remove .pyc files on build
  * install bash completions in standard location
  * ignore missing debian/config file, we ask only on purge on purpose
  * ignore full path for /usr/bin/etckeeper, we use it to stash it for
* Update to standards 3.9.6, no change
* Remove obsolete XS-Python-Version field
* Run debconf-updatepo, outdating a bunch of translations
* Use getent utility instead of perl. (Elan Ruusamäe)
* Initial FreeBSD support with pkgng plugin. (William Johansson)
* Fix README.md symlink in package (Sebastian Schmidt, Antoine Beaupré,
  closes: #791566)
* Update git URL in control file.
* Send yum pre-commit output to /dev/null
  Thanks, Andrew Colin Kissa
* Set LANG=C internally when doing some operations that have
  been reported to fail in other locales.
* Fix name of DNF plugin.
* Add --version
  Thanks Andreas Wansner.
* New website, http://etckeeper.branchable.com/
* Add build-depends on dh-python.
* Added support for Fedora's DNF highlevel package manager.
  Thanks, Peter Listiak and Petr Spacek.
* Add architecture info to dpkg list-installed. Closes: #768145
* Orphaned the Debian package.

Log message:
Update to 1.15. From the changelog:

  * Recommend cron-daemon, rather than cron, as etckeeper only needs
    cron.daily functionality. Closes: #762721
  * Handle failure to commit in post-install, pre-install by showing a
    warning, rather than propigating the error to apt.
    This avoids breaking the apt run when eg, git is misconfigured and
    cannot commit.
    pre-install already did this when it was able to use debconf to display a
    message, but now debconf is not used, and it always behaves this way.
    Closes: #760011
  * Ignore check-mk-agent-logwatch's FHS violating
    /etc/check_mk/logwatch.state. Closes: #753903
  * Only allow [-a-z_] in etckeeper commands to avoid any possible directory
    traversal etc issues.
  * update-ignore, uninit: Fix parsing of ignore files containing '\'
  * Portability fixes. Thanks, Harald Dunkel.
  * Add support for pushing to multiple remote repositories.
    Thanks, Rouben.
  * Fix handling of git ignores like dir/*
    Thanks, Pim van den Berg
  * Fix too broad matching of .gitignored files.
    Closes: #732339
  * Remove lvm/backup from default ignores, because lvm
    documentation recommends backing that up, for use by
  * Fix exporting of some git variables. Closes: #728583
  * Fix git update-ignore syntax. Closes: #721873
  * Avoid listing .gitignored files in .etckeeper file. Closes: #607665
    Thanks, Zdenek Crha
  * Fix hilarious typo hardcoding my name. Closes: #718425
  * Guard git config calls. Closes: #717957
  * Quote user and group names, in case one contains a space.
  * Added support for the pacman package manager.
    (Thanks, Tiago Stürmer Daitx)
  * Use user.name and user.email from the .gitconfig file belonging to the
    user who sued or sudoed to root, in preference to making up values for
    that user.
  * cron.daily: Fix typo in stale lockfile handling code.
    Closes: #717908
  * Deal with unix^wlinux portability nonsense.
