Bug#507912: haskell-devscripts: Overly-tight deps in dh_haskell_depends
I am starting on the process of getting all my packages to use
dh_haskell_depends. Unfortunately, I noticed some oddities:
I just built hslogger. Its cabal file has Version: 1.0.6. The
debian/changelog version is 22.214.171.124. I am upstream for hslogger, so
it is a debian-native package.
Then I went to build MissingH. It too is using dh_haskell_depends.
Amongst the dependencies for libghc6-missingh-dev, I see:
libghc6-hslogger-dev (>= 126.96.36.199), libghc6-hslogger-dev (<< 188.8.131.52+)
which is functionally the same as:
libghc6-hslogger-dev (= 184.108.40.206)
I am not sure what you meant to use; perhaps:
libghc6-hslogger-dev (>= 220.127.116.11), libghc6-hslogger-dev (<< 1.0.6.+)
In other words, the upper bound should be based on the cabal version,
not the Debian version.
CCing to debian-haskell for feedback there.
