   The "long time no upload" release.
   * checks/binaries{.desc,}
     + [RA] Permit architecture: all packages to have binaries in the
       multiarch directories.  (Closes: #469301)
     + [RA] Suggest an override for arch: all packages containing binaries
       independent of the host architecture (such as for cross-compiles).
   * checks/changelog-file:
     + [RA] Quash more Perl warnings on badly malformed NEWS.Debian files.
   * checks/control-files:
     + [FL] Add 'triggers' as a valid control file.  Thanks, Joey Hess.
       (Closes: #473840)
   * checks/copyright-file{.desc,}:
     + [RA] Document handling of false positives for GPL, GFDL, and LGPL
       license references and catch the GFDL 1.1 false positive.
     + [FL] Add CeCILL license to false positives list for
       copyright-should-refer-to-common-license-file-for-gpl.  Thanks,
       Alexandre Fayolle.  (Closes: #472933)
   * checks/cruft:
     + [RA] Subversion conflicts generate three files, two with revision
       numbers and one with .mine.  Only warn about the revision numbers;
       .mine probably won't occur alone and may be a false positive.
   * checks/etcfiles:
     + [RA] /etc/init.d/{skeleton,rc,rcS} are not conffiles, and README
       files in /etc need not be.
   * checks/fields.desc:
     + [FL] Remove obsolete section base from list of valid sections in
       unknown-section.  (Closes: #471751)
   * checks/files{.desc,}:
     + [RA] /etc/init.d/{skeleton,README} don't need to be executable.
     + [RA] Warn about linda overrides since linda has been removed from
       the archive.  Thanks, Y Giridhar Appaji Nag.  (Closes: #469603)
     + [RA] Check for numeric owners or groups outside of the reserved
       static ranges.  Patch from Håkon Stordahl.  (Closes: #469924)
     + [RA] Issue errors for installing files under /var/www.  This isn't
       in FHS, may not be the document root, and may break local files if
       it is the document root.  Thanks, Joerg Jaspert.  (Closes: #470403)
     + [RA] Don't consider files in bin directories that contain "copying"
       or "license" to be extra license files.
     + [FL] Don't complain about empty directories under
       /usr/share/python-support since those might be needed.  Thanks,
       Josselin Mouette.  (Closes: #473428)
     + [RA] Ignore extra license files in examples subdirectories of
       /usr/share/doc.  Thanks, Daniel Jacobowitz.  (Closes: #476149)
   * checks/lintian.desc:
     + [FL] Rename md5sum-mismatch-in-changes-file to
   * checks/nmu{.desc,}:
     + [RA] Add support for +nmuX versioning for NMUs of native packages.
       Patch from James Vega.  (Closes: #475026)
     + [RA] Don't consider an NMU changelog entries that mention NMU with
       a variation of the word "incorporate."
   * checks/scripts:
     + [RA] Attempt to quash some Perl warnings.
     + [RA] *.py files in /usr/{lib,share}, /etc/init.d/skeleton, and *.ex
       files do not need to be executable even if they look like scripts.
     + [RA] Add clisp, procmail, and rrdcgi, and another way interpretors
       are templated in *.in files.
     + [RA] Expect unversioned dependencies on OCaml packages rather than
       versioned dependencies since the version changes frequently and
       unversioned dependencies are what people are already using.  Thanks,
       Hideki Yamane.  (Closes: #476417)
     + [RA] Add inetutils-inetd and xinetd as additional update-inetd
       providers.  Patch from Guillem Jover.  (Closes: #474077)
     + [RA] If the call to some supporting program like update-inetd is
       conditional on the existence of the program, assume the maintainer
       knows what they're doing and don't warn.
   * checks/shared-libs:
     + [RA] Move the default ld.so search path into data.  Drop obsolete
       /usr/lib/libg++-dbg, /usr/X11R6/lib/Xaw3d, and libc5 compatibility
       directories in the process.
     + [RA] Allow and expect ldconfig, SONAMEs, and shlibs treatment of
       libraries in multiarch directories.
   * data/binaries/multiarch:
     + [RA] New file listing multiarch binary directories.
   * data/shared-libs/ldconfig-dirs:
     + [RA] New file listing directories searched by ld.so.
   * debian/compat:
     + [FL] Increase debhelper compat level to 5. There is really
       no need anymore to support building on sarge.
   * debian/control:
     + [FL] Add dependency on libdigest-sha-perl.
     + [FL] Increase debhelper dependency to >= 5
   * frontend/lintian:
     + [RA] Qualify relative --root directories so that we don't break
       later.  Patch from Håkon Stordahl.  (Closes: #469925)
     + [CW] Add intrepid as an allowable distribution for Ubuntu.
     + [FL] Support Checksums-* fields in .changes files. Follows
       the same rules as the md5sum check. Add new option --checksums
       as alias for --md5sums.  (Closes: #476565)
   * lib/Spelling.pm:
     + [RA] Avoid Perl warnings when called with an uninitialized value.
     + [RA] Correct "meta package" and "meta-package" in descriptions to
       "metapackage".  Thanks, Frank S. Thomas.  (Closes: #476681)
   * lib/Util.pm:
     + [FL] Rename function get_file_md5sum to get_file_checksum and
       support SHA1 and SHA256.
   * man/lintian.1:
     + [FL] Drop linda from SEE ALSO since it is obsolete now. Suggested
       by Hideki Yamane. (Closes: #474478)
     + [FL] Add new --checksums option.
   * reporting/html_reports:
     + [RA] Base the generation of clean report pages on the maintainer URL
       rather than the full maintainer string so that maintainers with
       different forms of their name won't have clean reports that
       overwrite dirty ones.
     + [RA] Fix the counts in qa-list.txt, which were broken in several
     + [RA] Don't consider a maintainer's page error/warning free if there
       are errors or warnings in their co-maintained packages.
   * reporting/templates/maintainer.tmpl:
     + [RA] Always add anchors to the package names even for uploaders.
