 sysadmin-guide (0.6.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New Maintainer.  Thank you Lars and Joanna for all the hard work in writing
     and maintaining the guide up until now. (Closes: #112698)
   * Some upstream changes (since I am upstream too).  Basically added
     lots of terms to the glossary.
   * Sorry if I am using the Debian changelog as an upstream changelog too
     for the moment.  This will be remedied as soon as I get the upstream
     source properly sorted out (and work out a tool as nice as dch to manage
     an upstream changelog).
   * A few footnotes added, and a few bits of errant English cleaned up.
     Basically lots of small bits and pieces of outdatedness sorted out (at
     least provisionally).
   * I think there are enough changes to the original to warrant a new
     upstream release, so bumping the version to 0.6.3.
   * Cleaned up lots of spelling errors, and shamelessly unamercanised the
     spelling.  "flavour" not "flavor", "organise" not "organize", "centre"
     not "center".  Yes, I know this is an American world and all that, but I
     have to spend more time looking at this text than anyone else, and I do
     *NOT* intend to have to suppress shudders whilst doing so :)
   * Tidied up all the apostrophisation, when talking about several circular
     shiny things the correct plural is "CD-ROMs" and *not* "CD-ROM's" :)
     Hopefully the apostrophes are all in the correct places now, but if
     anyone spots errors then please let me know.
   * Added chapter about where and how to find more help
   * Incorporated the new license from Lars' new upstream release, license
     is now Gnu Free Documentation License 1.1, so as this is significantly
     different from that release bumping the upstream version again (now 0.6.4)
     (Closes: #113069) 113069 is a notification of the change of copyright.
