Maq (short for Mapping and Assembly with Quality) builds mapping assemblies
from short reads generated by the next-generation sequencing machines. It was
particularly designed for Illumina-Solexa 1G Genetic Analyzer, and has a
preliminary functionality to handle ABI SOLiD data. Maq is previously known as
Developmemt of Maq stopped in 2008. Its successors are BWA and SAMtools.

debian/upstream (also removed from debian/docs)

- Standards-Version: 3.9.3 (no changes needed)
- Fixed Vcs fields
- Build-Depends: dh-autoreconf
- Dropped from Build-Depends: quilt, cdbs

of using dh-autoreconf
* debian/rules: converted to dh
* debian/copyright: cme fix dpkg-copyright
* debian/patches/gcc-4.7.patch: Enable building with g++-4.7
Closes: #667270

(debian/control, debian/maq.doc-base).
* DEP-5 conformant debian/copyright file, checked with ‘config-edit’.
* Use Debhelper 8 (debian/control, debian/compat).
