elfsh (0.65rc1-1.1ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low

  * debian/control:
     - Add emacs22-bin-common build dependency (Closes: #434916).
     - Change Architecture to i386-only, as the newest versions FTBFS
       everywhere except with i386. See Debian Bug #381320.
     - Let libelfsh0-dev conflict with libasm-dev (LP: #92949).
     - Modify Maintainer value to match the DebianMaintainerField
  * debian/rules: do not ignore "make fclean" errors.
  * Add 02_fix_typo_in_help.dpatch to fix a typo in command-line help
    (Closes: #441324).

 - Debian is also letting both conflict in the latest version of libasm-dev (which isn't in Hardy). See [0]:
     * Make libasm-dev conflict with libelfsh0-dev again, the 0.123-3 change
        got lost. (Closes: #404054)

 - A replacement for elfsh is in the way, and it will probably be removed from Debian soon.
