--- Begin Message ---Package: debhelper Version: 11.1.6 Severity: wishlist When backporting libpam-mount from experimental to stable, the only change I needed was -Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 11), … +Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 11~), … The tilde allows ~bpo versions of debhelper to satisfy the constraint. The debhelper(5) manpage suggestion has no tilde. Can it have a tilde? https://manpages.debian.org/unstable/debhelper/debhelper.7.en.html#COMPATIBILITY_LEVELS https://manpages.debian.org/stretch/debhelper/debhelper.7.en.html#COMPATIBILITY_LEVELS

It may have happened with squeeze, because it shipped with 8.0.0, and back then people put all of '8.0.0' in the >=, instead of just >=8, but that's it. A lot of people noticed this case because the 11.1 version couldn't be backported, and the backport couldn't be updated until now. I've just uploaded 11.1.6~bpo9+1, so now nobody will notice anymore for a long time again :) -- regards, Mattia Rizzolo GPG Key: 66AE 2B4A FCCF 3F52 DA18 4D18 4B04 3FCD B944 4540 .''`. more about me: https://mapreri.org : :' : Launchpad user: https://launchpad.net/~mapreri `. `'` Debian QA page: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=mattia `-
