Hi, It seems that not every new maintainer is building a package on an unstable system which is recommended (or at least a version with the current policy version). So there are errors in packages which come to debian-mentors which are checked with an old version of the debian policy. So what about a special exception which provides updated lintian & linda packages for the stable distribution? Is it technical possible? I mean becaused it should be fixed. If not it would be great to add some kind of Warning to the source code which checks the Debian versions and warns the user that it is normally recommended to built on a newer version. Maybe this idea is crap but I think somehow it would be great to wanr users building on stable (not an error because of backports etc.) Regards Nico -- Nico Golde - JAB: email@example.com | GPG: 0x73647CFF http://www.ngolde.de | http://www.muttng.org | http://grml.org Forget about that mouse with 3/4/5 buttons - gimme a keyboard with 103/104/105 keys!
