debugging symbols for BOINC binaries
 The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a
 software platform for distributed computing using volunteered computer
 This package contains unstripped versions of all binaries included in
 the BOINC packages. It is provided primarily to provide a backtrace
 with names in a debugger, this makes it somewhat easier to interpret
 core dumps.

Changes: boinc (5.10.8-1) unstable; urgency=low
  [ Frank S. Thomas ]
  * New upstream release.
    - Fixed wrong CPU information on alpha, hppa, ia64, ppc and sparc.
      (closes: #406853)
    - Use i686-pc-linux-gnu as alternative platform name for
      x86_64-pc-linux-gnu to get i386 binaries on amd64. (closes: #366741)
      Hence all traces to our own mechanism to override the platform name on
      amd64 have been removed:
      - debian/patches/001_amd64_disable_platform_reset.patch
      - debian/extra/
      - the associated paragraph from debian/boinc-client.README.Debian
  * Updated boinc_client's, boinc_cmd's and boincmgr's manual pages for the
    new release.
  * debian/boinc-client.{init,default}: Use two dashes for boinc_client's
    command line options instead of one because that is it's default now.
  * debian/boinc-client.postinst: Use "[ ... ] && [ ... ]" instead of
    "[ ... -a ... ]" because these constructs are much easier to read.
  * debian/boinc-client.preinst: Use dpkg-query instead of poking directly
    into the dpkg status file. See this thread for more information:
  * debian/conffiles/{cc_config.xml,global_prefs_override.xml}: Added comments
    which explain the purpose of each configuration file and which contain
    URLs to upstream documentation for each of them.
  * debian/copyright:
    - State that the source code is obtained via Subversion (and not via CVS)
      and added a pointer to debian/README.Debian-source.
    - Updated for the new release.
  * Added /usr/share/bug/boinc-client/script which pastes boinc-client's
    init script configuration file (/etc/default/boinc-client) into bug
    reports because this might be helpful for debugging.
  * extra/bash/boinc: Added bash completion for boinc_client and boinc_cmd.
  * debian/rules:
    - Don't ignore $(MAKE) distclean errors to make lintian happy.
    - Install unstripped versions of boinc_client, boinc_cmd and boincmgr
      and let dh_strip do this job for us. Now building BOINC with
      DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="nostrip" actually does what it should do.
  * debian/patches/: Added 002_remove_hardcoded_optimization.patch to remove
    hardcoded compiler flags from client/ and to make debian/rules
    the only place again where compiler flags are defined.
    (probably closes: #427661)
  * New boinc-dbg package added to provide debugging symbols for BOINC
  * debian/boinc-dev.{install,links}:
    - Don't install lib/common_defs.h manually, "make install" does this now.
    - Create a symlink in /usr/share/boinc-dev/lib/ to the new str_util.h.
  [ Steffen Moeller ]
  * Smallish changes to Debian READMEs and man pages.
  [ Debconf translations ]
  * Added Portuguese (pt.po) by Miguel Figueiredo <elmig at>.
    (closes: #428278)
