FTBS twice - what is the priority for it?
I am preparing an upload to Sid, with the intent of getting it into
Lenny, for a package of mine (to solve bug #493061 for fakeroot-ng, if
it matters). While working on it, I found out that the package also has
a FTBS twice bug, which resulted from empty lines (with no leading tab
character) in debian/rules in the clean target. My question is - what to do?
Do I open a FTBS twice bug for the package and upload the fix? If so,
what priority should the new bug be? I saw FTBS bugs ranging from
"wishlist" to "important". I don't think it is an actual policy
violation (am I wrong? Can someone point me to the relevant section?)
Alternatively, as the delta has only white spaces between fixing the
tabs and not fixing it, I can just put the fix in and hope the release
managers (hi!) don't catch me when I ask them to allow the fix for
Then again, if the bug is not important enough, I can upload a fix that
only handles 493061, and doesn't touch the double FTBS bug at all.
What should I do?
