emboss (6.6.0+dfsg-2biolinux1) trusty; urgency=medium
* Current package builds jemboss from source but then installs
the pre-built jemboss.jar from the tarball - not good!!
Add ant dep and ensure that jemboss.jar really builds
* Include image for icon and edit .desktop file
* Add /usr/bin/jemboss
* Clean ./jemboss/ which is created on build
* Clean various other files that blocked debuild -S (but note
we are still using some convenience copies of JARs)
* Remove makeJar.csh, and thus remove jemboss dep on csh
* Remove activation.jar which does not seem to be used at all
