- obsolete cron sub package on systemd machines

* Wed Sep 12 2018 Marcus Rueckert <>
- dropped non suse support
  - added etckeeper-set-package-manager.patch: set the package
    manager via a patch now that we only care about suse
- bzr support:
  - disable for now as it would force the whole package to be
    python2 bound. you can reenable it when building with
  - -with=bzr or set the options in your prjconf:
    %define _with_bzr 1
    %_with_bzr 1
  - change bzr support to be in a subpackage if enabled
- build with python3 when not building with bzr support
  - patch shebang line in the zypper plugin to match that
- build the whole package as noarch if we don't build with python
  as we are just packaging a bunch of shell scripts
- move bash completion to a sub package, which is recommended to
  keep the default working, BR and Require the bash-completion
  package for path ownership
- downgrade to git-core so we only have the minimal git for small
  installs on servers
- no longer build the cron support on systemd machines. the systemd
  timer is more powerful and should be used instead.
- when uninstalling we should also disable and stop the systemd
- only ship the documentation files that are also shipped in the
  debian package
* Tue Sep 11 2018
- update to 1.18.8:
  * Work around git commit's lack of robustness, by providing
    reasonable default values for GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL etc.
    This was already done as part of the su/sudo handling,
    and is now always done.
  * Don't hardcode the master branch when pushing to PUSH_REMOTE.
    Instead, let git push whatever branches it is configured to
    push to that remote.
- Drop 0001-Remove-env-from-shebang-in-zypper-plugin.patch because
  now in upstream.
