vc-dwim-1.6 released [stable]

It's been six months and a few bug fixes, here's 1.6:

In case you're wondering what this package does, see

Very briefly, there are two tools:
   vc-dwim is a version-control-agnostic ChangeLog diff and commit tool.
   vc-chlog is a helper tool for writing GNU-style ChangeLog entries.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify vc-dwim-1.6.tar.xz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.68.101-b8546
  Automake 1.11a
  Gnulib v0.0-6711-g262ac66


* Noteworthy changes in release 1.6 (2011-12-23) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  vc-dwim now works even when you set GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF

  vc-dwim no longer fails when it encounters a ChangeLog line like
  "* file (...)" (i.e., with no colon) when that line ends with a ")".

  "vc-dwim a/ChangeLog b/ChangeLog" would mistakenly complain about
  an "--author/ChangeLog mismatch" even though the two name/email
  pairs in the ChangeLog files were identical.

** Changes in behavior

  vc-dwim now warns when you forget to add a one-line summary
