New autofs maintainer, several bugs fixed, please test
I have taken over maintainership of autofs from Justin, at his request. I
have acknowledged 8 nmu fixed bugs, closed 14 normal bugs, 1 wishlist bug, and
reassigned 1 bug to mount. There was also one bug closed by a previous nmu
upload, that was overlooked(54701). All in all, autofs now has 7 open normal
bugs, and 1 open wishlist bug.
I would like some people to test it out for me, before I upload it to
woody. If all goes well, I would like to have this also included into potato,
as one of the bugs(a race condition) is now fixed.
Here is the autofs_3.1.4-1_i386.changes file.:

autofs (3.1.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New maintainer.
* Acknowledge nmu fixed bugs. Closes: #34576, #38200, #44366, #46638,
#52716, #55066, #56316, #57347.
* Add -r(--no-restart-on-upgrade). Closes: #54859.
* Depends on procps. Closes: #53237.
* Bugs fixed upstream in 3.1.4:
* Arguments not passed to forked process, because of strtok. Closes:
* Uses upstream init script, as it supports debian. Closes: #42945,
* Applied slightly modified version of patch from bug report, to pass ro
option to fsck.ext2. Closes: #43633.
* Fix race condition during unmount. Closes: #52132.
* Conflicts with samba <= 2.0.6, as that version is needed to be used by
mount_generic. Closes: #54788.
* If /etc/auto.master exists, don't use nis. You can add +auto.master to
to /etc/auto.master if you want to combine nis and a local mapping.
Also set the type to yp in getmounts(). Closes: #40032, 41008, #57225.
* The upstream init script does not do module probing, as the old init
script used to. I don't feel it is this pkg's domain to do a modprobe.
* Check to see if the directory already exists, before attempting to make
it ourselves. Closes: #21567.
* Reassign bug #31251, which deals with mounting a directory from multiple
hosts to mount.
* Make /mnt/amnt during configure, and remove when purging.
* Modify upstream init script to support force-reload.
* Linitian clean.
