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.

What I would recommend to do is to forward your diff it is to Debian and update the merge request to drop unrequired changes, fixes are fine to keep (i.e the maintainer script tokens or watch fixes) but changing the source format in an Ubuntu specific way doesn't seem a good idea

You also don't need to list the maintainer update in the changelog that's something we do for each source we modify in Ubuntu

Removed unrequired changes, following advice from Sebastien Bacher.

Sebastien, did the following update to this branch:

- Removed debian/source/format;
- Restored previous values in debian/control for Standards-Version and Build-Depends.
- Removed references to previous change from changelog.

Please let me know if it's ok now, or further changes are needed.

Thanks for the patience!

Best regasrds.-

Sebastian, would you mind just making this branch hold the Makefile fix? The other changes are great and would ideally be sent on to Debian. But if Ubuntu accepts the extra changes, it would make it harder for us to go back to being in sync (we'd generally wait until Debian took them too).

Sebastian Carneiro (scarneiro) wrote :

Sure, no problem.

I will to that and let you know.

Thanks for your help !

Looks good, thanks.

Only issue was overly-long changelog lines. (lintian complains about it) Fixed on upload.
