Binary package hint: azureus

Lots of bug fxes, less memory consumption... Won't make a fuzz, but the present version in Universe is a dud. :-)

Thank you for your bug. However, your request does not have all the required information to be processed - most importantly, a list of the Ubuntu changes and why they can be dropped.

If you want to do the necessary work, please see and possibly . If you don't wish to do this work, then please say so. Then someone else won't assume you're doing the work.

This merge depends on bug #128157, and a merge of eclipse from debian unstable.

So, it turns out that our Azureus package isn't derived from the Debian package at all, so it is counterproductive to try to merge/sync. I will reject this merge/sync bug, and instead update our Azureus package to the new upstream version.
