Hi Daniel,

I'd generally sponsor the upload. Built fine, works for me on at least
amd64, no lintian warnings I could argue about. :-)

There are at least the following packaging changes which is not
mentioned in the changelog entry, but IMHO should:

* There's a new build-dependency on libxapian-dev. This seems due to
  upstream changes. Nevertheless this should be mentioned in the

* Multiple added "Multi-Arch:" headers.

Since you don't seem to have pushed the packaging changes yet, I
suspect making these changes without an ugly looking commit history is
still possible.

Something probably too late for this upload, but which came to my mind
when I read about the debtags fixes: Refering to
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=686124#44 I'd be
happy if the Categorical Browser is gone before the Jessie release --
at least so far that there's no more menu entry for it.
