This looks fine, but all changes meant to fix bugs in stable releases should first land in the development release. Can you please do a similar merge proposal for the zesty release?

Also, please make sure that in debian/changelog, lines are limited to 80 columns.

Will you be able to give me some guidance? I have lost my development environment and have almost got it setup..

As it has been a while since I have been here, how do I checkout the branch for the zesty release? It seems that the approach that I used before is not working. Has the location of the source changed? I cannot find it?...
