A problem with Build-Depends
(I'm not on this list, please Cc: email@example.com replies.)
I maintain cdparanoia and a couple of other small packages. There was a
new version upstream, so I've build a new package using dpkg-dev,
debhelper, and friends from unstable (minus a couple of days.)
Lintian is saying to me:
~/debian> lintian cdparanoia_3a9.8-1.dsc
E: cdparanoia source: package-uses-debhelper-but-lacks-build-depends
But in my control file I have:
Maintainer: Dale E. Martin <firstname.lastname@example.org>
a) Why is lintian complaining?
b) Are my Build-Depends simply silly? (I.e. is it safe to assume you've
got gcc and libc6-dev installed if you're building a package?)
