libcap-ng (0.7.3-1.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Use dh-autoreconf for better support of new architectures.  Thanks
Breno Leitao <> (Closes: #745562)
* Do not Build-Depend on python-support, since the package uses dh9 and
--with python2 (thus using the current dh_python2 utility and rendering
the other build-dependency obsolete).  Thanks Sebastien Bacher
<> (Closes: #707100)
* Add "Multi-Arch: same" in debian/control to avoid some conflicts in
dpkg.  Thanks Frédéric Brière <> (Closes: #697385)
