It seems a lot of history has been hidden when bug #690227 was merged into
this ticket.  I've summarized the history below for the benefit of other
users that are interested in using netatalk 3.x.  Please correct me if I
got something wrong or missed something.

But the question remains...given that:
- netatalk 3.0 was released on 25 months ago
- was initially packaged 22 months ago
- was repackaged using cdbs 17 months ago
- you stated your intent to upgrade the package to 3.x 7 months ago
- jessie freeze happens in 2 months

will we see a netatalk 3.x package in jessie?
