* Non-maintainer upload.
[ Simon McVittie ]
* Only copy install-mbr to debian/mbr-udeb/sbin if we are going to
build the mbr-udeb package, fixing FTBFS on non-x86 architectures.
In recent debhelper versions, dh_installdirs does not create
directories for binary packages that are not applicable to the
current architecture.  (Closes: #881835)
[ Niels Thykier ]
* Set Rules-Requires-Root (R³) to no.
* Replace use of "Priority: extra" with "Priority: optional" as the
former is now obsolete and replaced by the latter.
* Use Package-Type without the "XC-" prefix as it is no longer
