Just one comment: lintian 2.2.13 (from sid) reports:
$ lintian -i --pedantic *.changes
E: cflow: package-contains-info-dir-file usr/share/info/dir.gz
N: This package contains a file named dir or dir.old, possibly compressed,
N: in /usr/share/info. This is the directory (or backup) of info pages and
N: is generated automatically by install-info when a package containing
N: info documentation is installed. Some upstream build systems create it
N: automatically, but it must not be included in a package since it needs
N: to be generated dynamically based on the installed info files on the
N: Severity: important, Certainty: certain
and in fact it is correct:
$ dpkg --contents cflow_1.3-1_i386.deb | grep info
drwxr-xr-x root/root 0 2009-08-03 03:03 ./usr/share/info/
-rw-r--r-- root/root 448 2009-08-03 03:02 ./usr/share/info/dir.gz
-rw-r--r-- root/root 24212 2009-08-03 03:03 ./usr/share/info/cflow.info.gz
cflow 1:1.2-3 (from sid) does not distribute /usr/share/info/dir.gz, so it
seems that something has changed to the upstream build system, without being
documented in their last ChangeLog entry... diff to the rescue?
Fix that and I would sponsor. Thanks!
