(Since we don't ship non-free, this can't really be
release-critical.  Right?)

Hi Christopher,

This reminds me that I completely forgot to change the control
file for libforms0.89 from

 Package: libforms-dev
 Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1), libforms0.89


 Package: libforms-dev
 Depends: libc6-dev, libforms0.89

in my last upload (0.89-6), like you asked me to a few months ago
after you build 0.89-5.  Very sorry about that; it doesn't make
a porter's life any easier.

I can upload fixed source versions for woody of both libforms0.88
and libforms0.89 (is that okay with you Michael?), but can you tell
tell me whether I should use a Depends of:

 libc6 | libc6.1

like you suggested in the bug report, or rather:



Thanks (and sorry again).
