There's a fix in a followup to the bug report.

I don't think it's RC; update-alternatives-jdk1.1 isn't called by the
maintainer scripts or anything, it's only for use by the user when
switching between different versions of the JDK, so it really is just a
one-line fix in update-alternatives-jdk1.1 with no repercussions (I
believe). The alternatives registered by the maintainer script are fine
(well, the prerm sets $man to '/usr/man/man1', but it never actually
uses that because all the man page links are slaves).

This could be downgraded or NMUed if the maintainer isn't available.

s/pgp5/pgp5i in the control file, not difficult.

It Works For Me (tm), and if the compiled Lisp files are broken I'd have
expected to see the same thing. The submitter has different versions of
librep8 and rep (which are built from the same source), so this is
probably causing the problem.

Since librep8 (which the submitter has installed) is a woody package, I
don't think this is a bug in potato anyway.

Since the maintainer says he's patched around this, should this be
downgraded for now?

Could well be an instance of #62746.

This is a documentation problem. While inconvenient, is it really

Patch in the BTS.

The submitter describes a fix.
