Hi Simon, the release is great news !

Currently, I am learning a lot about Debian packaging from your comments and 
your commits after tag libidn2-0.12.

How do you like it to be organized ?
- putting the changes into my 'debian' branch (as patch set), so you can 
package based on 0.12.
- or basing those changes onto your current 'master', so they go into 0.13.

Regarding the checksums... those downloaded files should never change upstream, 
so a hard-coded checksum should do it (sha1 should be fine).
The caveat here is that recent OSX removed checksumming tools like 'sha1sum' 
without replacement. Since we use Perl anyways, we could include a small sha1 
Perl script. WDYT ?

Regards, Tim
