pstoedit (3.70-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Adopt package (closes: #812753).
* As the library has no reverse dependencies, i.e., is only used
internally, I agree with the previous maintainer that there is no need
for a GCC-5 library transition. This logic (closes: #791247).
* Migrate patches to modern gbp pq import/export format.
* Patch spelling.
* Patch update autotools.
