Package: locales

The dependency of locales on glibc-$DEBVERSION is harmful for
non-released architectures like the Hurd, since the only locales
package which exists (since there is not a testing disrtibution)
becomes uninstallable until the glibc package is recompiled.

Such dependency should be on glibc-$VERSION at most.

The reason glibc-$DEBVERSION was required in the past was that, at
some point, there were incompatible locales and libc packages having
the same VERSION but different DEBVERSION numbers. This was because
the maintainer was introducing new code from CVS without changing
the VERSION, which may be considered as a bad practice.

So, I request that the dependency is changed again to a non-debversioned
one (like glibc-$VERSION) and the maintainer refrains from making
incompatible changes without changing $VERSION as well.

Thanks.

Unstable is a freaking moving target. Don't file bugs just because
things don't stay in sync. That's ignorant.
