Re: Bug#311843: debsig-verify: Completely breaks installation of standard sarge packages

Hi dpkg folks,

here's a bug report I originally opened against debsig-verify, but it
seems it is in fact in dpkg, and supposed to be fixed long ago.
However, some of it still occurred again with dpkg 1.10.28.

Do you think I should reassign this to dpkg?

Regards, Frank
