The only debootstrap bugs I recall having anything to do with were #139543 and #139529, which I NMUed the package for. debootstrap (0.1.17.8) unstable; urgency=low * NMU * The "it didn't change the way the installer worked" release. * Makefile: create $(DESTDIR)/usr/share/man/man8 before attempting to install a file to it (Closes: #139543) * functions: fix race condition in smallyes() implementation; thanks to Matt Zimmerman for the analysis. "Sometimes, dpkg finishes executing before smallyes runs, and it loops forever while echo fails repeatedly due to the broken pipe." To fix this race, we simply swap the loop condition and body, so that if the echo fails, smallyes() exits cleanly. I further changed "true" to ":" to save the expense of an extra process for shells where "true" is not a built-in.
