Thanks to Jan Dittberner. * Track -src (not -linux) tarballs in rules and watch file. Thanks to Jan Dittberner. * Drop patches 1004 and 1005 (integrated upstream) and simplify CXXFLAGS in rules file. * Stop stripping no longer included source-less binaries from upstream tarballs.

- bitcoind: peer-to-peer network based digital currency - daemon
Bitcoin is a free open source peer-to-peer electronic cash system that
is completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or
trusted parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and
transact directly with each other, with the help of a P2P network to
check for double-spending.
By default connects to an IRC network to discover other peers.
Full transaction history is stored locally at each client. This
requires 150+ MB of space, slowly growing.
This package provides bitcoind, a combined daemon and CLI tool to
interact with the daemon.
