     - x2gobroker/brokers/inifile_broker.py: Also check for presence of 'host'
       and 'sshport'.
     - UCCS API change for X2Go Sessions: Rename "SessionType" to "Command".

     - bin/x2gobroker: If binding the http server fails, a non-zero exit code
       should be returned. (Fixes: #1013).
     - x2gobroker/loadchecker.py: Don't re-read the x2gobroker.conf during
       each cycle of the load checking loop. Rather read it on service startup
       and require a service restart when x2gobroker.conf has been changed.
     - x2gobroker/loadchecker.py: Avoid rare cases where at the end of a load
       checking cycle a negative sleep time would have been calculated.

     - SSH broker: Add --login option. This now supports X2Go Broker user and
       X2Go Server username being different accounts.
     - bin/x2gobroker: Correctly use split_host_address() function call.

     - x2gobroker/tests/test_broker_agent.py: Assure that tests are run without
       loadchecker usage.
     - broker-use-load-checker profile option: Also tolerate 'TRUE' and 'True'.
     - x2gobroker/agent.py: Fix failing execution of LOCAL broker agent. As
       the LOCAL broker agent is executed setuid root, we cannot
       Popen.terminate() (which is unneeded anyway) the process after its
     - Ignore SSH broker events for now. Not sure if we will ever support that.
     - Finalize API documentation.
     - Fix regression flaw in x2gobroker/web/json.py, introduced by commit

     + Trigger Makefile's install target and install those files. Drop debhelper
       from-source-installation magic.
   * debian/{control,compat}: Bump to DH version level 9.

     + Add B-D: python3-netaddr (for unit tests).
   * debian/x2gobroker-loadchecker.postinst:
     + Do chown/chmod on the correct file (not authservice.log, but
   * debian/python-x2gobroker-doc.doc-base:
     + Drop leading white-space in Abstract: field.
   * x2gobroker.spec:
     + Adapt to Python3 port.
     + Bump package version.
     + CentOS 6 + 7 have python34-devel, not python3-devel.
     + Enable debug_packages for openSUSE Tumbleweed (suse_version > 1500).
     + CentOS 6 + 7 have python34-setuptools, not python3-setuptools.
     + Fix removal of conf files in tmpfiles.d where needed.
     + Install tmpfiles.d configs into bin:pkgs.
     + Only install tmpfiles.d configs on systems that support/have systemd.
     + Some path fixes for the new tmpfiles.d/.
     + Make sure the build chroot has all it needs to run the PyModule's unit
     + Let's try to get unit tests working on Fedora first...
   [ Mihai Moldovan ]
   * New upstream version (
     - src/x2gobroker-{agent,ssh}.c: catch errors in setuid wrappers and add
       general return clause to make compilers happy.
     - Makefile: make sure that we actually append our custom CFLAGS and
       LDFLAGS values, even if passed in through the make command line.
     - src/x2gobroker-{agent,ssh}.c: fix compile warnings/errors.
     - src/x2gobroker-{agent,ssh}.c: fix more compile errors.
     - misc: copyright update.
     - misc: switch to HTTPS-based URLs where appropriate.
     - man/*: update date and version stamps pre-release.
     - misc: add missing coding modelines.
   * x2gobroker.spec:
     - Add %debug_package macro when debugging is to be enabled, hoping that it
       will actually generate proper debuginfo (and -source) sub packages
       owning files.
     - Whitespace only.
     - Remove obsolete EPEL 5 support.
     - Switch to HTTPS-based links.
     - Use more curly braces.
     - Pull in gcc and redhat-rpm-config.
     - Re-enable debug file generation to see which OS versions still fail.
     - %exclude does not work with curly braces, revert.
     - Remove %debug_package macro usage, breaks builds nowadays.
     - Pass down global flags in CFLAGS and LDFLAGS.
     - Fix %{__global_ldflags} usage if variable does not exist.
     - Commands don't seem to work when wrapped in curly braces (at least on
       *SuSE), so revert.
