nwall (1.32+debian-4.2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Do not ship /var/lock/nwall. Lack of this directory on wheezy systems with
a ramdisk for /run does not seem to have caused any problems, so do not
add an initscript to create it. Using /var/lock for opt-out flag files
seems flawed anyway, since they won't survive a reboot.  (Closes: #768273)
