Package: fetchmail Version: 6.3.26-3 Severity: normal Tags: patch Hello.
These lines in debian/rules -install -m 644 debian/README.contrib \ install -D -m 755 debian/ip-up $(tmpdir)/etc/ppp/ip-up.d/fetchmail fail to install README.contrib because a continuation line is missing, do not report the problem because of the evil leading dash, and miss installation of the ip-up script. The attached changes refresh the packaging and incorporate patches for this, #710319, #752598 as well as many trivial issues. The last diff requires some attention, as switching to debhelper compatibility level 11 changes the defaults for dh_installinit. As far as I understand * "dh_installinit --restart-after-upgrade" is now the default and the override in debian/rules is not necessary. * the induced changes in maintainer scripts (attached for review) seem safe.
