which is understood by your lineprinter. Apsfilter supports the following
file and compression types: gzip, bzip, compress, freeze, pack, ASCII, BMP,
Data (data,PCL,...), English, TeX DVI, FIG, GIF, Group 3 Fax, HTML, JPEG,
Mail/News, PBM/PNM/PPM, PC Bitmap Data, PDF, Postscript(tm), raw, script
(shell,..), Text, sunraster, tiff, roff (nroff, groff, troff).

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for print category

Problems found locating distfiles:
	Package acroread7: missing distfile AdobeReader_enu-7.0.9-1.i386.tar.gz
	Package acroread8: missing distfile AdobeReader_enu-8.1.7-1.sparc.tar.gz
	Package cups-filters: missing distfile cups-filters-1.1.0.tar.xz
	Package dvidvi: missing distfile dvidvi-1.0.tar.gz
	Package lgrind: missing distfile lgrind.tar.bz2

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.

Update apsfilter to 7.2.8, with some dependency clean up and packaging easier.

New in Apsfilter 7.2.8 (BUGFIX Release)

3. New Features

	- make it possible to use the lineprinter scheduler as jukebox
	- network jukebox (untested)
	  should also work with a remote printer queue
	  So your remote server has a soundcard and your print clients
	  send audio files to the remote printer to play audio files
	  one after the other.
	  For this purposes a new parameter from SETUP needed to be
	  saved into the apsfilterrc file (INTERFACES).
	  In every sound play routine in apsfilter
	  we test if this is a network printer.
	  Then we need to send the data stream (i.e. mp3) unprocessed.
	  On the print server with the soundcard the tanslation needs to
	  take place.

New in Apsfilter 7.2.7 (BUGFIX Release)


	- make spaces possible in samba printer name
