This is (< 6.8.2+) according to dpkg --compare-versions. $ dpkg --compare-versions '6.8.2+' '>' '6.8.2dfsg1-1' && echo check check $ dpkg --compare-versions '6.8.2' '<' '6.8.2dfsg1' && echo check check $ dpkg --compare-versions '6.8.2-7' '<' '6.8.2dfsg1-1' && echo check check $ dpkg --compare-versions '+' '>' 'dfsg1' && echo check check Well, that's a relief! That's what I'll do, then. Thank you very much. That'll still leave a few libraries that have "ghc6 (< 6.8.2-999)", but those should be fixable with simple binNMUs. Already much more manageable.
