Re: [Pkg-haskell-commits] darcs: gitit: Use system JS

Hi Dmitry,

I might be wrong, but I remember this approach might work only on newer releases.

I recall I did something similar for libsdl2-gfx (IIRC) and I had to lower the version in d/changelog, to allow uscan find a newer release.

can you please double check? (copyright from sdl and lower version)

Yes, I know it is only part of work. Problem is that uscan refuses to
it's work. As soon I specify Files-Excluded: field, I receive following

    tar: Skipping to next header
    tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
    mk-origtargz: error: tar --list --auto-compress --file
    ../gitit_0.10.6.3.orig.tar.gz gave error exit status 2
    uscan: error: mk-origtargz --package gitit --version
    --compression gzip --directory .. --copyright-file debian/copyright
    ../gitit- gave error exit status 2

Did you ever encountered this? I failed to find example package, that
uses this uscan feature.
