  o improved Debian packaging
  o actually use distribution-provided *FLAGS while compiling binaries

 x2goserver ( RELEASED; urgency=medium
   [ Mike Gabriel ]
   * New upstream version (
     - x2goserver.service: Add Documentation= key.
     - x2goserver/lib/x2gocheckport: chmod a+x.
     - New bin:pkg: x2goserver-desktopsharing. Move all desktop sharing
       integration logic from x2godesktopsharing to x2goserver src:pkg.
     - Don't rely on "ln -sf" to remove a symlink before recreating it. If the
       target is non-writable, this may fail (observed on a Debian stretch
       system). Thus, removing the symlink file first and then recreating it.
     - Massive white-space cleanup (at EOLs).
     - x2goserver/bin/x2goruncommand: Support IceWM as desktop session type.
   * debian/x2goserver*.dirs:
     + Let dirs have a trailing slash in their path (for the human eye merely).
   * debian/copyright:
     + Regenerate auto-generated file.
     + Adopt from recent Debian packaging.
     + Add x2goserver.spec.
   * debian/control:
     + Move xfonts-base from D to R. Thanks lintian.
     + Move C (x2goserver) with versioned x2godesktopsharing, to B.
     + Don't depend on essential package without version. Drop bash from D.
     + Bump Standards-Version: to 4.2.1. No changes needed.
     + Mention "client side printing support" also in descr of bin:pkg
   * debian/*.postinst:
     + Avoid recursive chmod/chown. Recursive chown/chmod is susceptible to
       hardlink attacks on mainline, non-Debian kernels.
   * debian/x2goserver.postinst:
     + Load debconf module, even if not used (Debian Policy demand).
   * debian/*.templates:
     + Move x2goserver and x2goserver-desktopsharing templates into separate
   * debian/po:
     + Add French translation. Thanks to Jean-Pierre Giraud from the Debian
       project. (Closes DBTS:#905931).
   * lintian:
     + Drop unused debian/x2goserver-printing.lintian-overrides.
   * debian/*: White-space cleanup.
   * x2goserver.spec:
     + Mention "client side printing support" in all pkg descriptions.
     + Regression fix: Use "desktopsharing" package name above its description,
       not copy+pasted "extensions".
     + Regression fix: Make /etc/x2go/desktopsharing be owned by x2goserver-
     + Exclude x2go*-desktopsharing scripts and man page in %files x2goserver.
