Bug#657428: RFS: surf -- simple web browser (QA upload)

No previous maintainer Kai forwarded mail to me as I had adopted his
dwm package. I asked the reporter to raise a bug but he didn't do that.
So what do you suggest me to do for this? Shall I raise a bug or its
+ Reduced the update-alternative priority to 30 as per request
from user to the previous maintainer
Hmm. Was there a bug report about that?
Well, I wanted to have some insight into what problem we're trying to
solve here. Having it documented somewhere (preferably in a bug report)
would be nice.
The hunk looks like this:
+export CPPFLAGS CFLAGS LDFLAGS
Unfortunately, this _won't_ do the right thing for these dpkg-dev
versions that didn't provide the /usr/share/dpkg/buildflags.mk file.
Ok I went through the conversation so I need to build-depend on
dpkg-dev correct version for this and add conditional check for
buildflags.mk. Please correct me if I'm wrong
There is more than one way to fix this. The simplest is to have
versioned build-dependency on dpkg-dev. (And then you don't need "-"
prefix before include, or other conditional checks.)
