Yep.  Works perfect, is commited and the running code is updated -
thanks for the patch.

However, I think there is no real need to "force" people to follow the
BibTeX convention in debian/upstream files.  I also commited a change[1]
to the just announced BibTeX creation procedure which inserts a second
dash if it is missing.  So we are safe for both sides: Your patch cares
for proper rendering of the tasks pages in case the debian/upstream file
might follow BibTeX convention and in turn the patch below ensures that
in the debian.bib file will all pages featuring the double dash (--).

Is this OK?

Kind regards
