Re: xmlm_1.0.1-1_amd64.changes is NEW
Thank you for the explanations.
Dependencies are nice to have (code reuse, security fix as you
underlined it) but can be a nightmare if they are two numerous. This
is usually not the case on Debian and Ubuntu thanks to Debian
developers but this is not the case on other distributions. Anyway,
this general issue is not related to Debian packaging. ;-)
