spamaps at debian.org

Thanks James! That should ease ongoing 5.5 maintenance.
Let's not forget that 5.6 work is ongoing in a separate repo:
Once we figure out how to transition from 5.5 -> 5.6 with all of our new
friends in tow we should get to a point where we are mostly working out
of that repo.
