Hi Chris, >I think you're right. Here's one patch - can you quickly test it works >for you?
sorry, I don’t even have a testcase. I only noticed it during looking at the source, trying to figure out whether a symlink in the new position was good enough. > + last if $file; But this is probably it, yes. >… but, just for giggles, here's another silly one: That looks also good ;-) >Compat level 5 (!). Well, 5 was the standard/minimum for a long time, and I don’t use the newer features anyway (not those visible to the user; those in the background, such as using gzip’s -n option, are, of course, used), so I’d just use compat 5 and get whatever version the target distro had with whatever of its fixes. >(What's wrong with the debhelper versions in >backports, out of interest?) I try to keep backports dependencies out if possible. I also maintain, in my own (public) repo and in the private one of my employer, backports much far back than oldoldstable, for those who are still running such systems or chroots someplace. This started out with back to etch (but, back then, lenny was stable, so it was not that much of a, well, stretch (no pun intended)), but eventually we discovered a sarge sy‐ stem somewhere at the workplace, so I targetted that with a handful of packages until we could upgrade it (it’s long gone, thankfully, but it’s no effort to keep what I already *have* working in the old versions, working in those; though I don’t create new backports to such old versions). It’s also a portability exercise… bye, //mirabilos -- 13:22⎜«neurodamage» mira, what's up man?
