Re: Aaargh: UPLOAD: cgi-modules_2.75-6
Umm, I'm not sure then about what I'm expected to do now. dpkg
does not seem to want to build a new package with uppercase names.
If dpkg can't handle a case change in the package name, but
does not allow packages to be built with uppercase names, and does
not seem to honour the no-check option, either I'm missing something
basic or I can't build a new Package. Help, anyone?
A possible solution would be
a) copy an old version of CGI-modules from buzz to rex,
b) I downgrade dpkg to let build CGI-modules
c) someone point out a silly error I'm committing that'll allow me
to build CGI-modules again (as opposed to cgi-modules)

<deb> is the filename of a Debian format archive.
<cfile> is the name of an administrative file component.
<cfield> is the name of a field in the main `control' file.
Options: -D for debugging output; --old or --new controls archive format;

Use `dpkg' to install and remove packages from your system, or
`dselect' for user-friendly package management. Packages unpacked
using `dpkg-deb --extract' will be incorrectly installed !
