Yes, that's better.

IMHO, the Debian Policy really should be more exacting.

Waiting for the answer.

Hmm... The history follows.

I made built package checks under my usual system (testing), and now i see
that it should be produced in pbuilder environment. I just added linda- and
lintian-hooks to pbuilder (DISTRIBUTION=testing). They reports:

Setting up linda (0.3.17) ...

Linda: Running as root, dropping to nobody.
E: dsbltesters; dsbl.conf is in /etc, but not marked as a conffile.

Setting up lintian (1.23.14) ...

E: dsbltesters: file-in-etc-not-marked-as-conffile /etc/dsbl.conf
W: dsbltesters: old-fsf-address-in-copyright-file

To me, it's a kind of magic, because i use up-to-date etch system and
certanly same linda/lintian versions as for pbuilder environment. How come
the difference?

Anyway, now, pbuilder environment was upgraded for sid and next release
should be lintian-clean. Be so nice, look at dsbl-testers_0.9.5-3...
