Bug#192273: dpkg-dev: dpkg-scanpackages ignores the override file

Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.9.21
Severity: normal

When processing a bunch of .deb files dpkg-scanpackages skips packages not
listed in the override file. At the end of generation it prints out a list
of these packages.

Now I have a directory with different versions of packages and
dpkg-scanpackes automatically takes the newest version:

 ! Package x (filename ./x-n.deb) is repeat but newer version;
   used that one and ignored data from ./x-m.deb !

The problem is that this package will be included in the Packages file even
though it is not listed in the override list and reported to be excluded.
