cons ( unstable; urgency=low
* Update to debhelper 9.0 (thanks, Logan Rosen <>).
* Update to Standards-Version: 3.9.8
* debian/rules:
- Don't do anything in binary-arch since we are arch-independent.
- Add required rules build-arch / build-indep.

* Revert to version 2.2.0, the last known-to-be-good version
- (Closes: #346041)
- Unfortunately, 2.3.0 has horrible problems with non-trivial
dependencies which makes it pointless to use cons over make.
- The odd version string is to avoid using epochs.
* The dependency patch from 2.3.0-2 is still applied; if this causes
problems, please file a bug and I'll remove it.
