  * pkgstripfiles: Serialize PNG optimization and changelog trucation using
    the lock already used for serializing creating symlinks for identical
    documentation files. (LP: #1782094)
  * pkgstripfiles: Skip symlinking identical documentation to not built
    packages, otherwise arch: any only builds may create symlinks which are
    not created when building arch: all and arch: any together. The mismatch
    between the symlinked and not symlinked files causes failure when trying
    to coinstall arch:any packages using multiarch.
    (LP: #1574351)

dh-translations: debhelper extension for translation support

 This package provides a debhelper extension to perform common translation
 related operations during package build:
  * Try to build a current PO template.
  * Remove inline translations from *.desktop, *.server, *.schemas, and
    *.policy files and replace them with a link to the gettext domain, so that
    strings in them will get translated at runtime from *.mo files. This allows
    language packs to ship updated translations.

pkgbinarymangler: strips translations and alters maintainers during build

 pkgbinarymangler consists of a dpkg-deb wrapper that calls the following
 helper applications while building a debian binary package:
 pkgstriptranslations removes all *.mo files in /usr/share/locale from
 all package build directories. It is used to strip off gettext translations
 from generated binary packages, because translations are already shipped
 in the language packs. Its behaviour (which is disabled by default) is
 configured in /etc/pkgbinarymangler/striptranslations.conf.
 pkgmaintainermangler adjusts the maintainer field in binary packages to
 match a set of rules (including whitelists, mass renames by component,
 maintainer name, etc) defined in the pkgmaintainermangler configuration
 file at /etc/pkgbinarymangler/maintainermangler.conf.
