A stable update.

Reading the bug report for #838326, I don't quite understand why the
severity is so high.  But hey, as the maintainer you probably know better
and it's not me but the SRMs you need to persuade.

The rules for stable updates have changed: the devref still claims one needs
"a truly critical functionality problem" while the SRMs have since relaxed
that to "severity:important, but really it depends".  As this bug claims to
be "important", we may give it a try.

However, you are required to ask the SRMs first.  The proper procedure is
described in developers-reference 5.5.1.  All you're missing is an ok from
the release team: please file a bug on "", we need them to
allow the upload.  Please attach a debdiff between 3.5.2-8 and
3.5.2-8+deb8u1 to that bug.

But here we have an issue: there's already a bug report on asking for a stable update, even with the same version
(3.5.2-8+deb8u1): #840378.  It's a NMU from Salvatore Bonaccorso fixing a
different problem.  That bug is 6 days old, hasn't been responded to yet.
You guys need to coordinate...

A MAP07 (Dead Simple) raspberry tincture recipe: 0.5l 95% alcohol, 1kg
raspberries, 0.4kg sugar; put into a big jar for 1 month.  Filter out and
throw away the fruits (can dump them into a cake, etc), let the drink age
at least 3-6 months.
