I can make the debdiff, but am generally interested in the changes
you have made.

I have imported 4.5.1 into our Git repository and this can go to
experimental.  However, when I inspected the diff between (tags)
upstream/4.0.8debian and upstream/4.5.1+debian, I got a diff of over
500,000 lines (yes, really).  Most of this pertains to translation, but
still quite some files are added to the 3rdparty/ folder which means we
need a big update of debian/copyright again.  This is going to take
quite some time, unfortunately.

I wanted to explain this, because I see that many people are eager to
get their hands on 4.5.1, but it's just more work than import upstream,
build and push.  Given that Thomas and I have little time at the moment,
this makes it go slower than you guys would want.  Any help is
appreciated though.  Maybe I should upload preliminary packages again?
