To access further information about this package, please visit the following URL:


Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/sigit/sigit_0.3.2-3.dsc

I can't download your source package:

$ dget -q http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/sigit/sigit_0.3.2-3.dsc
curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404
dget: curl sigit_0.3.2.orig.tar.gz http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/s/sigit/sigit_0.3.2.orig.tar.gz failed

But I can download the missing .orig.tar.gz from the archive, so never mind...
Sorry, I wasn't aware of this. I reuploaded with -sa.

Why did you override ancient-autotools-helper-file?
Upstream did rip the autotools helper files from autotools but they are modified and the package does not really use autotools, so updating the helper files will just break his configure-script. Thus the warnings does not really make sense.

Why did you override debian-rules-ignores-make-clean-error? Lintian is correct here.
I do no longer ignore make clean errors. I run make distclean only if Makefile exists (thus a previous build was done/tried).

I don't understand what #641573 has to with multi-arch. It looks more like a problem with using --as-needed for linking, which is BTW (thankfully!) not the default in Debian.
Neither do I. It seems to either affect only Ubuntu or affect Debian in special cases (perhaps when using multiarch, which I am not). I did implement the change as it seems to fix the bug in Ubuntu and certainly should not hurt.

What do you mean by "* Fix various lintian errors."? That's not a helpful changelog entry...

Sorry, too brief, I agree. I have updated the changelog entry.



Oh, sorry for my double post and silence - my mentors-mails ended in a non-subscribed IMAP folder.

Best regards and TIA
