Please use your connections with IBM to apply the spelling fixes
upstream. Every divergence we keep on the Debian side needs to be
justified as they are a pain to rebase on a new release.

The same is obviously true of the error-manpages diff as well, but that
was already there. I'd appreciate if IBM could look through the patches
if anything could be done to get them upstream so that we can carry
less of a delta.

The other changes are fine to me if there's no change to the actual
package output except descriptions and build output. Did you test the
resulting package on an actual s390 machine on *Debian*?

I'm a bit surprised about the explicit addition of the hardening flags,
given that none of the binaries is suid nor a network daemon. So we
could just follow the distro-default here. But I'm not too bothered by

Kind regards and thanks
Philipp Kern
