I was looking at the referenced bug reports and there you suggested to use the debian/control field (sed -i -e '/^Source:/ aFormat: 3.0 (quilt)' .../debian/control) I think the wiki page you mentioned with up-to-date information regarding this topic would really be a good idea. >> Build-Depends, it would imho be useful if lintian issued a warning, that this >> build-dep is no longer required with 3.0 (quilt). > > Please file a wishlist bug against it, then. :) Only if you think this is a good idea. It was more of a question then a remark. Cheers, Michael -- Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
