./sysutils/etckeeper, Store /etc in git, mercurial, bzr or darcs

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.18.5.1nb2, Package name: etckeeper-1.18.5.1nb2, 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:
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 1.18.5.1. 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
  update-manager.
* 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
    later
* 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)
* Fix typo of GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL.
* 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
    vgcfgrestore.
  * 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.
