Description: Linux SCSI tape driver aware magnetic tape control (aka. mt)
 Mt-st contains a version of "mt" that is aware of Linux's SCSI tape
 driver. Mt-st is able to set some esoteric control flags like tape partitions.
 Mt-st diverts (replaces) the GNU version of mt, in the cpio package.
 It also comes with stinit, a program to be run at boot time to set up
 tape defaults.

 mt-st      - Linux SCSI tape driver aware magnetic tape control (aka mt)
Closes: 251114 294646 374122
 mt-st (0.9b-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * Take over the orphaned package. Closes: #374122.
   * New upstream version, closes: #294646.
     * Copy SG 3.x protocol definitions from the (2.6-)kernel scsi/sg.h
       header. The stinit code provides a fallback, so this is safe
       when running on kernels < 2.6.
     * Introduce a new build-dependency on linux-kernel-headers for
       the copied kernel header.
   * Supply modprobe.d/ snippet in analogy to the already existing
     modutils config file. Closes: #251114.
   * Bump debhelper to version 5, clean up package build process.
   * Remove -g from the compiler options.
