Agreed. I'll revert that. It was introduced in Julian's first upload
of notify-osd to Debian.

I also want to take a second to clarify what I did with the changelog,
and see if folks think we should continue doing it so. I followed the
same format that is used when merging a package from Debian into
Ubuntu. The sub-sections under the first bullet point describe not
changes made in the current upload, but the remaining diff from
previous uploads:

 * 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)

The remaining top level bullet points describe new changes in the
current upload:

 * 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.
