  brltty (6.4-4ubuntu3) jammy; urgency=medium

  * Try to resolve brltty conflicting with generic serials (lp: #1958224)
  * debian/brltty.udev.rules, debian/brltty-usb-generic.rules,
    - split the generic identifier udev rules to a separate rule which
      is going to be distributed as an example but not installed by default.
      Those rules are needed by some braille readers to work but conflict
      with cp210x and FTDI serial ports. Those special devices had required
      manual setup in Ubuntu since 2011 and were only added back to the
      default configuration due to a merge error.
  * debian/brltty.templates, debian/brltty.postinst, debian/rules:
    - when upgrading from a version that provided the generic rules prompt
      the user with debconf to ask if those should still be installed.
      The default answer is yes to avoid accidentally regressing users
      with a such braille reader configured during the upgrade.
      If you don't use a brailler reader you should answer 'no' to avoid
      having the service blocking access to other devices.
      The script is /etc/udev/rules.d/86-brltty-usbgeneric.rules
