For some reason I forgot that a bug isn't automatically closed when it's marked fixed in all existing branches. As long as the new changelog/changes "command" (Fixes:/Patches:) causes the bug to be marked fixed but not closed, we're fine. I don't even think we need a new tag; a fix to a bug tagged "upstream" can be assumed to be a divergence until the bug is finally closed. -- Magnus Holmgren firstname.lastname@example.org Debian Developer
