Thanks a lot for updating this package. Yet the new non-repacking leaves some
doubts to me:

- "Don't repack anymore." is a nice hint that something has changed, but yet it
  left me to find this out myself via the debdiff. 
- Using "repacknot1" as version appears to be a cruel hack. Ideally we'd have a
  new upstream version that could be packaged, but if that doesn't happen
  soonish, we'll have to live with that hack. (Introducing an epoch doesn't seem
  like a better solution either...)
- Why do server binaries belong to a "data" package? Isn't that just a hack to
  avoid a new source package?
- The original license appears to disallow re-packaging/splitting, hence there
  must be some exclusive exception provided to Debian. This is, however, not
  detailed in the copyright file.

Best regards,
