* The transitional ttf-dejavu package must depend on ttf-dejavu-{core,extra}
instead of the fonts-dejavu-* flavors, so the fonts files are available
at the expected locations (Closes: #706516).
* Make ttf-dejavu also depend on fonts-dejavu for a smoother transition.
[ Christian Perrier ]
* Use git for packaging: adapt Vcs-* fields
* Use machine-readable format for debian/copyright
