i am preparing the Debian package for a new upstream release of libisofs
and see on its tracker page
a new "action needed":
"Multiarch hinter reports 1 issue(s)"
The link points to
But where to see the actual complaint ?
Google "multiarch hinter" brings me to
where i find in the patch a URL:
- binary: libisofs-doc
description: 'libisofs-doc could be marked Multi-Arch: foreign'
The MultiArch/Hints wiki page says
"marking it Multi-Arch: foreign usually is safe."
but does not clearly state what it means by "usually".
There is no mentioning of "Multi-arch" in
nor is there an explanation of "foreign" in
More Google brings me to
with the statement:
"If a package is marked 'Multi-Arch: foreign', then it can satisfy
dependencies of a package of a different architecture."
I am about as confused as a year ago:
"Multi-arch and debian/control"
All packages got "Multi-arch: same" then, except libisofs-doc which
got no Multi-arch header at all. I cannot find or remember the reason
Could somebody please look into
and tell me what to do ?
(And was i really expected to google for a link to the 1.9 MB yaml file ?)
Have a nice day :)
