libao (1.1.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Adopting this package with the blessing of John.
Leaving him in uploaders because he's busy, not disinterested, but putting
myself in the hotseat for any reports related to this one now.
* End the grief with roar.
Too many people now have been through all the stages of Denial, Anger,
Bargaining, and Depression with it, so it's time to accept the only
sensible course of direct action that remains to preserve sanity.
Closes: #667039
* Pull upstream update to libao.conf.5, Closes: #636917
