Fwd: Saga 2.1.1 - debhelper9 - multiarch


Is anyone actually reading the pkg-grass-devel mailing list or should
I rather send my questions here?

I've updated saga to the last upstream release (2.1.1), a bugfix release.

The major change in packaging is that I switched to debhelper9 and
multiarch. I'd like to hear from someone more knowledgeable whether I
did the right thing for the saga package itself.

To: Debian GIS Project <pkg-grass-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org>

Hello everyone,

I've imported saga 2.1.1 which was released today.
This is mostly a bugfix release [1].

While importing I tried converting the package to debhelper 9. But I
got a bit unsure on how to proceed with the multiarch changes that
this implies.
I was able to build a package that actually installs and works, and
pushed those changes in a seperate branch [2]
However I got lintian errors on saga itself saying that the binaries
should also be in usr/*/bin.
Are there any other packages in debian gis which contain both
libraries and binaries which were converted to multiarch so I can have
a look how this was done?
