Closes: 469639 487964
 checkinstall (1.6.1-8) unstable; urgency=low
   * Recommend make since it's the most used install tool. (Closes: #487964).
   * Use quilt for managing patches to upstream sources.
   * Allow Requires to be used in Debian. (Closes: #469639)
   * Turn off system translation by default, since it is currently broken.
   * Update the Vcs-* tags since we moved to Git.
