I'm going to go ahead and grab this for pkg-ayatana. I've merged the
newest upstream version from Ubuntu and moved the bzr repo to:


I'd appreciate it if someone could review/sponsor a new upload to
unstable. You can grab it from the branch, or I've uploaded it to

dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/n/notify-osd/notify-osd_0.9.30-1.dsc

Here's the head of debian/changelog:

  * Merge new upstream release from Ubuntu, remaining
    Debian changes:
   - debian/control:
    + Update Standards-Version, change Maintainer and VCS fields.
    + Do not recommend notify-osd-icons, not in Debian.
   - debian/rules: Use debhelper 7 instead of cdbs.
   - src/defaults.c: Use dynamic slot allocation (See: #550592)
  * Adopt package for the Ayatana Packagers team and point Vcs
    fields to the pkg-ayatana repo at bzr.debian.org (Closes: #624758).
  * The new release fixes the FTBFS with binutils-gold (Closes: #555778).
  * Do not redirect output of dpkg-divert in notify-osd.{preinst, postrm}
    (Closes: #548247).
  * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2, no changes needed.
