(I'm assuming "unstable".)
Even a naively filtered diff - excluding documentation and tests -
between the 1.0.1k tag and HEAD on upstream's stable branch is much
larger than I'd imagined (1091 files changed, 73609+, 68591-), but
paging through it there's a significant amount of "no-op" changes such
+ seed_len, param_len;
that git diff is sadly too dumb to be able to ignore (or I'm too dumb to
be able to drive it to do so).
Do we have an approximate idea of how far divorced from upstream's
1.0.1e/k releases the corresponding packages in wheezy and jessie
