- Update to 3.16, announce message:
* Changed buffer size to the recommended 255 character when working with
names instead of IPs. (Closes: #796922)
* Bumped Standards-Version to 3.9.6, no changes needed.

- BuildIgnore hostname (ourselves): net-tools has a dependency on
hostname, and net-tools is part of the VMInstall package set. As
we know we do not rely on our own code to build, we can safely
ignore hostname and break that nasty buildcycle.
