Bug#559814: ITA: hamlib / new version for upload

After discussion with Steve Conklin (who filed an ITA for 'hamlib' a few
months ago) we have determined that I will volunteer to adopt and
maintain 'hamlib' instead of him.

For reference, I am a ham radio operator (KA6MAL), I do use hamlib
regularly, and I have developed applications which use the library.  

I have packaged the new upstream release (hamlib 1.2.10) which I propose
for review and upload by a kindly DD:


This package includes my fix for bug 559814 (CVE-2009-3736 local libltdl
privilege escalation), and minor Python 2.6 changes from Ubuntu.

I wasn't sure what to do with the debian/control "Uploaders:" field.  As
a placeholder, I set it to the debian-hams@lists.debian.org list address
-- I expect that it will be changed by the actual uploader:

  Uploaders: Debian Hamradio Maintainers <debian-hams@lists.debian.org>

This is my first experience with maintenance of a package at Debian, so
I am not at all sure that I'm following the proper procedures here.  Any
guidance will be much appreciated.
