Hey Christian,

Indeed, thanks! I made that more robust by always returning [] in the

Weird, I don't see them here, I just get the ones below and the too
old Standards-Version.

They aren't needed, but to quiesce lintian I added them now.

There's however one issue which I'd like to address before release.
Adding "update-initramfs -u" to adt-virt-qemu increased the test time
quite dramatically. The tests/testpkg-simple/ no-op test now takes 28s
instead of 20s here. I wonder, do we really need this? A reboot
without an update initrd should not be affected by this: the
/dev/baseimage node does not exist at all, thus there can't be any
UUID clash. It only gets added after booting (and rebooting too), so
having the initrd know about this is not required at all.

I pushed


now to fix this. I want to give you a chance to review this before I
push the red release button, though. :-)
