[ANNOUNCE] new fam version in experimental

Hi Debian users and developers,

I have just uploaded fam version 2.7.0-1 to experimental.  I did this
because of the following reasons (and those are also the reason why
building this package took so long):

 - the build-system of fam was completely changed by upstream
 - therefore the DNotify patch wasn't as easy to integrate
 - the package build-system was completely redone, now using CDBS with
   simple-patchsys and tarball-build which should make the package a lot
   nicer and better to handle

Please test these packages carefully, I appreciate any feedback[0].  If
no serious issues turn up over the weekend (I am using this packages, of
course) I am going to upload them to unstable with urgency=high because
this version fixes one nasty bug[1] for Desktop users and one serious
policy violation.  Any objections?

Thanks for your support,

[0] please don't forget to tag bugs "experimental"
