[ Bartlomiej Wrobel ]
* Initial release. (Closes: #655185)
[ Holger Levsen ]
* Polish Bartlomiej's packaging: extend package description and incl.
homepage and vcs-headers, bump standards version, fix debian/copyright, 
bump compat level to get hardened build for free.
* Remove Bartlomiej from maintainers in debian/control as his email address
bounces. I'd be happy to co-maintain with him, but this needs a working
email address.
