Actually we can't currently sync due to different source tarballs, but the 
Debian changes have been merged into the Ubuntu package now.  Thanks for hte 
heads up.

midisport-firmware (1.2+dsfg1-0ubuntu4) hardy; urgency=low

  * Merge w/ debian:
    - Drop debian/po/ directory.  Firmware now included.
    - Drop debian/README.Debian
    - Drop debian/{config,postinst,preinst,postrm, templates}
    - Update debian/control
    - Update debian/dirs
    - Drop debian/install
    - Add debian/menu
    - Update udev rules. (LP: #193891)
    - Fix watch file
    - Update debian/rules
    - Update Makefile.in to put firmware outside /lib.

  * In the even there is a new version this package can
    be synced.  It hasn't been synced now because our version
    number (1.2+dsfg1) is greater than upstream's (1.2).  Adding
    an epoch now would make this a worse situation.
