Thank you for the work you did there, the package is coming from Debian ( though so ideally we would be sent to their bug system ( so they can benefit from your fixes and it Ubuntu has less changes to carry and maintain which are duplicated efforts over what Debian is doing

We also try to limit the changes we do over Debian to required ones, while you standards version update and watch files are nice cleanups they are not really required in an Ubuntu specific way also

Sebastien, thanks for your review.

I need clarification about what the right course of action would be in a case like this:

 - Do I have to revert changes leaving only the required ones, or
 - Do I have to forward to Debian only the required changes, leaving the rest out of the patch ?


Thanks for your time.

Best regards.

Similar to the other merge request you should send your diff to Debian but limit the Ubuntu merge request to fixes, changing the source format or standards version for example is not really a delta we need over Debian

5. By Sebastian Carneiro on 2011-06-22

Removed changes not required to fix the associated bug, as adviced.

Sebastian Carneiro (scarneiro) wrote :

Branch updated with the following:

- Removed file debian/compat.
- Restored Standards-Version and Build-Depends to previous values.
- Removed changes from debian/rules.
- Removed entries in changelog corresponding to these reverted changes.

Please, if you see anything else that needs changing, let me know. I'm grateful for your advice, so I can learn to do correct packaging.

Thanks for the patience!

Best Regards.

Thanks, Sebastian. I uploaded with only one change: I ran 'update-maintainer' because it is Ubuntu policy to do so whenever we introduce a delta with Debian.

I also forwarded the misc:Depends and debian/watch changes on to Debian.

review: Approve

Thanks to you, Michael.

I will take your comments into account, so I don't miss those changes from next merge proposals.

Best regards,
