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

+ Reduced the update-alternative priority to 30 as per request from user to the previous maintainer
Hmm. Was there a bug report about that?
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 not required?.

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 DH_VERBOSE=1
+-include /usr/share/dpkg/buildflags.mk

Unfortunately, this _won't_ do the right thing for these dpkg-dev versions that didn't provide the /usr/share/dpkg/buildflags.mk file. Please see <http://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors/2011/10/msg00307.html> to understand why.

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.)
