Hi All,

As there are at least 3 persons ( including me :) ) interesting in the
package, I think it will be a good use case for a collab-maint repository.
Further I suggest to use gbp [0] and also switch to debhelper.

I've played a bit already with the package and ready to push the first

Shell I go ahead and create the collab-main/hdparm.git ?  ( hope I still
have the rights for it )
