Hi Andreas,

I have fixed all the major lintian warnings except for some missing
manpages (for which I have submitted a bug so that this will be fixed
sometime in the future).

Thanks to Jakub Wilk's help, I have successfully updated the package to
the latest version. I have also added myself to Uploaders.

To access further information about this package, please visit the
following URL:


Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

dget -x

Changes since the last upload:

  * Imported Upstream version 1.37
  * Use dh-autoreconf to fix FTBFS on ppc64el.
    Thanks to Logan Rosen (Closes: #735004)
  * Fix lintian error with Short Description
  * Remove duplicate license information
  * Ignore quilt .pc files
  * Drop datadir patch and create datadir path with debian/dirs file instead
  * Add myself to uploaders and tidy control file
  * Install RhumbSolve tool binary
  * SONAME bump
  * Install python files according to latest Python Library Style Guide
  * Add myself to debian/copyright
  * Remove dh_make comments from watch file to fix lintian informational
  * Rename lib & dev packages to avoid lintian warning
  * Resolved privacy breaches
  * Correct datadir path in datasets download script
  * Bump policy to 3.9.6. No changes required.
  * Add autoconf-archive dependency

I hope you agree the package is in better shape now.
