* Team upload.
* Fix CVE-2015-6644:
An information disclosure vulnerability was discovered in Bouncy Castle, a
Java library which consists of various cryptographic algorithms. The
Galois/Counter mode (GCM) implementation was missing a boundary check that
could enable a local application to gain access to user's private

bouncycastle (1.46+dfsg-7) unstable; urgency=low
* Team upload.
* Updated Standards-Version to 3.9.3: no changes needed.
* As per Java Policy, remove "Depends: default-jre | java2-runtime"
and "Suggests: java-virtual-machine" from library packages:
only programs need explicit depends on runtime.
* Force a Build-Depends on default-jdk (>= 1:1.6) to indicate that this
package needs some classes (like which
are not available in GCJ classpath (Closes: #678904).
* Remove Build-Depends on quilt and debian/README.source file
since we already use quilt (3.0) source format.
