* Non-maintainer upload.
* transmission-daemon.postinst:
- Change home directory of transmission-daemon to
/var/lib/transmission-daemon from /home/debian-transmission.
Thanks to Alex Peters for the report. (Closes: #734467)
- Disable password authentication for debian-transmission user for
improved security. Logins with e.g. SSH RSA keys are still possible.
- Check existence of debian-transmission user with getent passwd
debian-transmission instead of id.
* Add transmission-daemon.preinst:
- Fix permissions in /var/lib/transmission-daemon and use
/var/lib/transmission-daemon as the new home directory.
- Move old configuration files to appropriate config directory
All together this ensures that transmission-daemon will not segfault
when systemd is the default init system.
Thanks to Andrei Popescu and Antoine Legonidec for the report and
additional tests. (Closes: #718624)
* transmission-daemon.links:
- Link settings.json from /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json to
- Link /var/lib/transmission-daemon/.config/transmission-daemon to
/var/lib/transmission-daemon/info due to compatibility reasons with
the old sysv-rc init script settings.
* transmission-daemon.dirs:
- Do not create /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info anymore.

* Minimum version of libminiupnpc-dev is now >= 1.9.
* Removed debian/gbp.conf which imposes bzip2 when upstream releases source
using xz compression.
