Signify is a neat little program that allows a random signature to be
generated from a set of rules.  Each "section" can be one of an unlimited
number of possibilities, each with its own weighting so those really cool
quotes can appear more often than others.  Sections can also be placed next
to each other vertically to create columns.  Each section can be formatted
independently as left/right/center and top/bottom/vcenter.

signify (1.14-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* QA upload.
* Use source format 3.0 (quilt).
+ apparently the package was treated as native, even if it had a debian
revision number and had an upstream site with an upstream tarball.
Let's use last .tar.gz from the last upload as orig tarball.
* Use copyright format 1.0.
* Rewrite debian/rules using short dh format.
+ Add a build-depends on debhelper.
+ debhelper compat level to 9.
+ This obsolates the reproducible builds patches closes: #777062, #793721.
* Makefile:
+ Don't set PREFIX if it is already set.
+ Install the manpages in /usr/share, following FHS.
* fix typo s/writting/writing/ in the manpage.
* Move website to the Homepage field.
* Remove several useless files from debian/ and CVS control dirs.
