    [ Guillem Jover ]
    * libdpkg: Do not generate a backup file for the available database.
    Closes: #343578
    * perl: Switch Getopt::Long from bundling to bundling_values. This means
    the few scripts using Getopt::Long will stop accepting options in the
    form «-ab» for «-a -b», which is not future-proof, as it does not allow
    these options to get new arguments without making them abiguous.
    * dpkg-buildpackage: Remove transient backwards R³ compatibility code.
    * buildtools.mk: Add support for nostrip in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS when setting
    the STRIP variable.
    * dpkg-genbuildinfo: Do not include irrelevant packages in the Binary field.
    * dpkg: Do not clear selections for unknown packages. Closes: #927752
    * dpkg-shlibdeps: Add support for new Build-Depends-Packages, to be able
    to specify multiple packages. Closes: #926669
    Based on a patch by Frank Schaefer <kelledin@gmail.com>.
    * perl: Remove support for versioned GnuPG 2 program and packages.
    * libdpkg: Clarify lock contender error message. Print the PID of the lock
    contender, and add a warning explaining that removing the lock file is
    never the correct solution.
    * dpkg-genchanges, dpkg-mergechangelogs: Remove support for ~vola
    versioning, as volatile.debian.org was decommissioned some time ago.
    * dpkg-genchanges, dpkg-mergechangelogs: Match ~deb also as a backport
    marker in versions. Closes: #934980
    * libdpkg, dpkg: Use new versiondescribe_c() for non-localizable call sites,
    such as when writing to a log, which should not be localized.
    Reported by Julien Cristau <jcristau@debian.org>.
    * dpkg-query: Try to use the package synopsis from the available file if
    not installed. Closes: #43573
    * dpkg-gencontrol: Take into account hardlinks when computing the
    Installed-Size substvar. Closes: #923475
    Patch co-authored with Sven Joachim <svenjoac@gmx.de>.
    * dpkg: Fix and clarify behavior for packages marked to be on “hold”. These
    need to be processed for configuration and triggers. Closes: #926472
    * dpkg: Use DPKG_ADMINDIR to set the admindir. Closes: #900071
    * dpkg-source: Remove backwards compatibility code for legacy build-profiles.
    * perl: Give more context on field parsing errors. Closes: #637060
    * dpkg-buildpackage: Add option to sanitize environment. Closes: #843776
    * update-alternatives: Cope with a missing administrative directory.
    * update-alternatives: Create the administrative directory on demand.
    * dpkg-split: Cope with a missing parts/ database directory.
    * dpkg-split: Create the parts/ database directory on demand.
    * libdpkg: Consider msdbrw_needsuperuser equivalent to msdbrw_write, so
    the same checks are performed on normal non --force-not-root operation.
    * libdpkg: Add support for bootstrapping the installation of dpkg:
    - Create the logfile with correct permissions, and remove the code
    setting up the logfile from the dpkg postinst.
    - Allow missing status and available databases, so that they get created
    on write, and remove the code setting them up from the dpkg postinst.
    Closes: #647911
    - Do not change the ownership of the triggers database directory. Either
    we are running as root:root which means the ownership should be correct
    already, or we are not which means we cannot change it anyway.
    - Create the dpkg database directory on demand.
    - Create the updates/ database directory on demand.
    - Create the info/ database directory on demand.
    * dpkg-architecture: Fix handling of exec failing in --command.
    Reported by Helmut Grohne <helmut@subdivi.de>.
    * dpkg-buildpackage: Do not accept equal signs as part of the hook names.
    Reported by Daniel Shahaf <danielsh@apache.org>. Closes: #948291
    * dselect: Mark a string for translation.
    * dselect: Cleanup access methods:
    - Remove harddisk methods, as they were non-functional due to fdisk
    interface changes, and do not make sense anymore as we can expect users
    to mount any such filesystem on their own, to then use a filesystem
    method instead. Prompted by Helmut Grohne <helmut@subdivi.de>.
    - Remove cdrom method superseded by the multi_cd method.
    - Remove nfs methods, as there is nothing special about NFS, and mounting
    these should just be left to the local admin, who can mount any other
    remote filesystem too.
    - Remove multi_mount method, as the multi_cd method can take care of
    mounting the necessary images or devices.
    - Replace changelog with correct copyright in file header.
    * dpkg, dselect: Stop using first-person singular in output messages.
    * libdpkg: Fix memory leak in parsedb context close.
    * buildtools.mk: Add QMAKE variable. Closes: #920878
    * po: Fix translation of --compare-versions. Closes: #951614
    Thanks to Boyuan Yang <byang@debian.org>.
    * Perl modules:
    - Dpkg::Source::Package: Verify original tarball signatures at build time.
    - Dpkg::BuildFlags: Add new unset() method.
    Requested by Daniel Schepler <dschepler@gmail.com>.
