Source: refcard
Source-Version: 5.0.9
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


Here's a patch, which fixes a typo, makes the Debian distribution
references system-neutral now that we have other non-GNU/Linux released
architectures (although the ip command is Linux-specific), and switches
the debsums item to use the new native «dpkg -V».

(The <> still has system
specific references to Debian GNU/Linux.)

Note that I've not build-tested it, as the Build-Depends where quite big.
And sorry for bundling this in a single patch, but splitting it with svn
is rather painful, but I could do that if you wanted though.
