Updated: bison-3.0.2-1

A new release of bison, 3.0.2-1, has been uploaded and will soon reach a
mirror near you; leaving the previous version at 2.7.1-1.

This represents a new upstream release, and the first build of bison by
a new maintainer.

For more details on the upstream changes, see the documentation in

Bison is a general-purpose parser generator that converts an annotated
context-free grammar into a deterministic LR or generalized LR (GLR)
parser employing LALR(1) parser tables. As an experimental feature,
Bison can also generate IELR(1) or canonical LR(1) parser tables. Once
you are proficient with Bison, you can use it to develop a wide range of
language parsers, from those used in simple desk calculators to complex
programming languages.
