nvidia-support (20151021+1) unstable; urgency=low
* nvidia-support: Drop create-xorg-nvidia-conf-experimental, never used and
no longer needed.
* nvidia-kernel-common:
- Don't trigger update-initramfs, no longer ships a blacklist.
- Disable the nvidia module options that set the device permissions to
root:video 0660. They were silently ignored since udev in jessie started
to load the nvidia module automatically and attempts to reactivate this
resulted in serious trouble, requiring both the local user and the dm
user to be in group video.  See #801598, #801869 for details.
- Drop obsolete initscript that created the device nodes.
(Closes: #626653, #730041)
* Convert package repository from SVN to GIT.
