* Mon Aug 06 2018
- Remove unnecessary ldconfig from devel subpackage
* Tue Jul 24 2018
- Update to version 7.12.1.
- Remove doc package, since the files have been removed from the
  source. Actually it wasn't even the documentation, but the
  server code.
- Disable idle detection via the XSS API and remove dependency to
  libXScrnSaver-devel. This feature requires access to a running
  X server, which the BOINC client does not have in OpenSUSE.
- Rename the devel package and provide the correct dependency.
  The devel package provides the headers for libboinc, and has
  nothing to do with the BOINC client.
- Add conflict to original devel package.
- Remove unnecessary dependency to libxslt.
- Update systemd service file with changes from upstream: start
  after, and use "ProtectHome=true".
- Move bash completion file to /usr/share tree to fix rpmlint.
- Declare license files as %license.
- Don't install `notes` and `todo` - these are internal notes of
  the developers and not helpful to users.
- Drop 0001-MGR-support-wxWidgets-without-webview.patch, which has
  landed upstream (commit 27bb3c9e).
- libboinc-shared.patch: Build shared libraries for client and
  static libraries for science apps. Science apps are distributed
  as binaries over the BOINC network, so dynamic linking doesn't
  make sense. But we can use dynamic linking for the client.
- build-client-scripts.patch: Add some targets to fix build.
- Fix default path for boincscr.
* Wed Jul 11 2018
- Update to 7.8.6
