Heh, the "move back 2 spaces" is just an expression, in fact a phrase from "Monopoly" game :-) It was a little bit of irony as this issue was introduced when reallocated some lines at d/postrm for the sake of clean-up. Basically the issue was found at the debhelper stamps (#DEBHELPER#) and the physical location into the d/postrm. Moving it/cleaning the entry solved the issue. Unfortunately, there appears to be a non-related issue with this version of the software and a feature that's broken due to an infrastructure event. This issue does not render the software unusable. On the other hand, a minor but interesting feature will be lost since this event I mentioned. I'm on the way to find out if there's a simple way to backport the "fix" (which I doubt it would be clean), but at this point I'm really convinced that its a better idea to let the version at unstable (0.2.10-3) to get into, since it's just one version away from TPU's (0.2.9-1) and a version that is mostly based on fixing this problem (see attached changelog), has been extensively tested for longer than 2 months at unstable, with no mayor issues and none pending. What do you think about it? Do you think we could get permission for a T-P-U/Freeze exception?
