me co-maintainership.

+ Update to Standards-Version 3.6.2.

* debian/compat: Use debhelper v4.
* Remove all postinst and preinst templates; debhelper v4 generates
ldconfig calls automatically.
* Devices within subdirectories of /dev are locked properly, using
':' as a path delimiter in the device lock name.  For example,
/dev/pts/2 is locked as /var/lock/LCK..pts:2
(Closes: #115109, #135299).
* Device major and minor numbers are computed using GNU libc
builtins, rather than kernel headers (Closes: #331139).
* src/sample.c debugging is amended to use the proper debugging
functions (Closes: #331255).
