$ cat /etc/blends/sources.list.UNRELEASED 
# For testing purposes this sources.list might be useful.  It is a

I now tried

    /usr/share/blends-dev/blend-gen-control --udd -r unstable -S  -c -m

which results in a change of the debian/control file.  I see some diffs
compared to the non-udd version.  I do not have time to investigate those
single differences (all in all 40 diff paragraphs).  Just to make sure
I understood the test case correctly:  Both results (with --udd and
without) should have no difference, right?

BTW,  I think my previous test - as non-sense it probably was to use
UNRELEASED - uncovered a problem:  If there is an empty list returned
the debian/control file should be changed to everything Suggests.
However it did not change at all which is wrong.

Thanks a lot.

Kind regards
