and the 1.20.7-2 debian/changelog entry.
+ Set urgency=low.

essential information for the administrator.

having run "debclean"), partially by using wildcards. Makes package

dependencies of a package only have the same or higher priority.

+ Update versioned build-dependency on debhelper accordingly.
