Here is the delta to Debian.

Some of this delta is not specific to Ubuntu, and I've opened bug reports on the Debian BTS for those:

the changes are mostly good, some small notes:

- do we really need to move the autostart to usr? if we do that we need to clean conffiles in etc on upgrade
- there is a relibtoolize and a autotools patches having both is probably not required there
- shouldn't we keep the no debug flood patch, we will get the issue again on unstable versions

otherwise the update is good to be uploaded once those are sorted

status: Fix Committed → Incomplete

I've updated this now, and the new delta to Debian is attached. The
changes I've made are:

- Dropped 90_relibtoolize.patch and regenerated 98_autotools.patch.
- Edited debian/rules to not move startup files from /etc/xdg/autostart.
- Added 90_no_debug_flood_by_default.patch back in to debian/patches.
The patch doesn't need to be applied though until 2.27.x

I've also published the changes in my branch.
