- update to ack 2.12:
  fixes potential remote code execution via per-project .ackrc files
  [bnc#855340] [CVE-2013-7069]
  * prevents the --pager, --regex and --output options from being
    used from project-level ackrc files, preventing possible code
    execution when using ack through malicious files
  * --pager, --regex and --output options may still be used from
    the global /etc/ackrc, your own private ~/.ackrc, the ACK_OPTIONS
    environment variable, and of course from the command line.
  * Now ignores Eclipse .metadata directory.
- includes changes form 2.11_02:
  * upstream source mispackaging fix
- includes changes from 2.11_01
  * Fixed a race condition in t/file-permission.t that was causing
    failures if tests were run in parallel.
- modified patches:
  * ack-ignore-osc.patch adjust for upstream source changes
* Tue Oct 29 2013

  is only used in regression tests - skip them for SLE

  * Add --perltest for *.t files
  * Added Matlab support

  * Add Elixir filetype
  * Add --cathy option
  * Add some helpful debugging tips when an invalid option is found
  * Ignore PDF files by default, because Perl will detect them as text
  * Ignore .gif, .jpg, .jpeg and .png files.  They won't normally be
    selected, but this is an optimization so that ack doesn't have to
    open them to know
  * Ack's colorizing of output would get confused with multiple sets
    of parentheses
  * Ack would get confused when trying to colorize the output in
    DOS-format files
- includes changes from 2.05_01
  * We now ignore the node_modules directories created by npm
  * --pager without an argument implies --pager=$PAGER
  * --perl now recognizes Plack-style .psgi files

  * Fix a bug resulting in uninitialized variable warnings when more
    than one capture group was specified in the search pattern
  * Make sure ack is happy to build and test under cron and other
    console-less environments.
- packaging changes:
  * run more rests with IO::Pty
  * refresh ack-ignore-osc.patch for upstream changes
  * update project URL

  * Added .pm6 as a --perl extension.
  * Lua can now get detected from the shebang line.  Thanks,
    Matthew Wild.

* Sat Sep 17 2011
- Remove redundant tags/sections from specfile
- Use %_smp_mflags for parallel build
* Sat Feb 26 2011
- add --spec/--rpm for .spec files
* Tue Nov 16 2010
- update to 1.94:
  * Added support for Go and Delphi.
  * Ignores Monotone's _MTN directories.
  * Added .xsl to the list of --xml files.
- changes from 1.93_02:
  * --man and --version now return with an exit code of 0 (they used to exit with a 1)
  * the --ignore-dir option now can ignore entire paths relative to your current directory
  * added --invert-file-match switch to negate the sense of the -g/-G switches
- changes from 1.93_01:
  * added --verilog, --vhdl and --clojure
  * files that match *.mk and *.mak as well as GNUmakefile are now included in the ack filetype 'make' (issue 88)
  * added RSpec's .spec type to the --ruby list
  * added docs for -r, -R, --recurse options
  * added new switch --color-lineno and environment variable ACK_COLOR_LINENO, which allow setting the line number color
  * added option --show-types to output the types that ack considers a file to have
  * 'ack --count --no-filename regex' doesn't output a list of numbers but a sum of all occurences; this is NOT what grep does but is the more sensible behavior
  * fixed ack misbehavior when using --match or not specifying a regex
  * fixed issue 74: analog to grep, 'ack --count regex file' now only outputs the number of found matches, if only one file is given
  * fixed issue 76: giving both --line and a regex (with --match) now leads to an error; the same is true for -f or -g in conjunction with --match
  * fixed issue 80: piping into ack --count now works as expected: ack always returned 0 when piped into, no matter how many matches where found
  * fixed issue 81: .ackrc now ignores leading/trailing whitespace
* Thu Nov 11 2010
- applied patch by Pavol Rusnak <> from openSUSE:Factory:Contrib/ack to ignore .osc directories (redone for release 1.92)
- merged .changes entries for 1.92 by Petr Uzl <> from openSUSE:Factory:Contrib/ack, he was a lot less lazy than me
* Sun Feb 14 2010
- removed bash completion file, way too slow
* Sun Feb 14 2010
- update to 1.92:
  * Added Scala support.  Thanks to Dan Sully.
  * Added .phtml as an extension for PHP.
  * Using -f or -g now return a proper error code.  If files are
    found, ack returns 0.  If none are found, ack returns 1.  This
    is a change in the specification, but the code didn't match the
    specfication anyway.
  * No man pages are created for any of the .pm files any more.
  * The --pager flag would not work.  Now it does.  Thanks Packy
  * File matching for Emacs work files that match #*# was wrong.
    It was checking the entire path, not just the basename.  This
    is fixed.  (
  * Fixed URLs that pointed to old Google Code.
- split out perl-App-Ack into its own subpackage
