Bug#32550: This is no longer release critical. EOD.
severity 9771 wishlist
These bugs aren't release critical for Debian anymore. This is from
dpkg (184.108.40.206) unstable; urgency=low
* Add Zack Weinberg's install-info patch for GNU install-info
So our install-info is now compatible with GNU install-info (in one
direction). It is not Debian's fault if someone has GNU's install-info in
$PATH before /usr/sbin/install-info - don't mess with the packaging system,
you'll just get in trouble.
Anyway, these conflicts don't happen quite so often. Debian's texinfo
package doesn't install its (GNU's) install-info binary, so the bug won't
happen with pure Debian installations.
There is still one option - rename dpkg's install-info to something
else, but there's too little gain and too much breakage of our packages
included in that. I wouldn't recommend it, but can ackgnowledge it
as a valid wish/request. Thus, I'm changing the severity of these
bug reports to 'wishlist'.
