Re: Interesting delema (xfig, debhelper, and doc-base in frozen slink)

Fork it.

Leave the current version (assuming it works, of course), in slink/frozen.

Keep a copy of the diff somewhere safe so if a release-critical pops up,
you can fix it.

Now change the doc-base stuff to accord with the potato debhelper (Aside:
it is *evil* to make incompatible changes in debhelper.  I hope that was a
mistake by the debhelper maintainer ;), and upload the new version (bump
the debian-version number) to unstable only.

Then porters using potato (and note that the releasing ports should all be
frozen by now, and using slink debhelper), will use your potato version.

Does that fix it?
