Closes: 568476 572351
 update-notifier (0.99.3debian1) unstable; urgency=low
   * Rebase packaging on Ubuntu's one (Closes: #568476); differences:
     - Depend on update-manager-gnome instead of update-manager.
     - Only recommend cpu-checker as it's not in the archive (yet).
   * data/ Upgrade to new python-apt API (Closes: #572351).
   * Disable gudev and gdu stuff on non-Linux architectures.
   * debian/control: Update Standards-Version and have -common depend on python.
   * debian/update-notifier-common.preinst: Add missing #DEBHELPER# line.
