Hi Christophe,

I moved the old repository to afflib-old after asking for consensus to
Michael. The repository is still available at:

and this is the latest commit about 3.5.12-1 which never got tagged nor

I moved the repository because it was in a very bad shape, with a lot
of unneeded garbage erroneously tracked and a lot more work to be done
before switching from the 3.5.10+dfsg to 3.5.12 (plain dfsg-free
release, thanks to cooperation of upstream author applying patches and
suggestions of mine). In any case, I acknowledged your previous work for
3.5.12-1 (latest four commits in the old repository):;a=commitdiff;h=3650fa9763955c8d507e30be58cb2766cf844a55

Wrt the problem about the 'debian' branch, it is simply called 'master'
in the new repository (which is more reasonable, especially when using
git-buildpackage... the 'debian' branch is a non-standard by the old
maintainer which is common to most of the forensics packages).
