* New maintainer (closes: #384633).

procinfo (18-1) unstable; urgency=low
* The sysutils package previously contained the utilities
- memtester
- procinfo
- tofrodos
- bogomips
Except for the latter they are all split out into a separate package
now as those utilities are fairly disconnected. This will eventually
fix bug#253302.
bogomips will be just dropped, use "cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep ^bogo"
* debian/watch: added
