Package: quilt
Version: 0.63-5
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I ran "pbuilder login" to debug a build problem with a package on sid,
so i was in a minimal sid chroot.  After some bumbling around I ran
"quilt applied", and was greeted by this error message:

root@bifrost:/tmp/yosys# quilt applied
/usr/share/quilt/scripts/patchfns: line 1040: less: command not found

The package build-depends on quilt, but quilt does not Depend on or
Recommend less, even though it calls out to it.  Probably quilt should
at least Recommend less.

Sebastian agreed in private email that the Recommend is already there,
so the issue is that pbuilder does not auto-install the recommends. So
this is not a bug. Thus closing.

Thanks, Mt.
