......@@ -243,6 +243,14 @@ care of adding/removing vdr to/from the groups listed in the specified
<plugin-name>.groups file. vdr will be removed from a group only, if no other
plugin requires this group membership.
In postinst a plugin should call:
/bin/sh /usr/lib/vdr/ --add vdr-plugin-foo
and in prerm:
/bin/sh /usr/lib/vdr/ --remove vdr-plugin-foo
If you manually add vdr to a group, you must add the group to
/etc/vdr/vdr.groups. If you don't do so, vdr may be removed from this group when
uninstalling a plugin.
vdr (1.4.6-2) experimental; urgency=low
The script /usr/lib/vdr/ may now be used by plugins to
manage the group memberships of the user 'vdr'. See README.Debian
for details on how to use this script.
If you manually need to add the user 'vdr' to a group, you should
add the group name to /etc/vdr/vdr-groups. This way the
script used by plugin installation/deinstallation procedures does
not try to remove vdr from this group.

vdr (1.2.6-9) experimental; urgency=low
This release adds a patch which allows us to have just one binary-
# vdr should be in the groups vdr and video
# If you add the user vdr manually to a group, you should list this
# group here. The plugin installation / deinstallation procedures may
# automatically remove vdr from a group, that isn't listed here.
# vdr should be in the groups vdr and video. You shouldn't change this!
