I agree with Dmitry here. A single merge commit makes it much easier to keep packaging commits separate from upstream commits. >> I am just confused >> as to why you removed the Build-Using field in control.. > > Because it was used on arch-all -dev package shipping sources... > > Built-Using on -dev packages is an artifact of older versions of dh-make- > golang which do not add "Built-Using" to -dev packages any more. Can we make this part of the packaging policy? I'm happy to remove Built-Using when updating -dev packages. It's pretty handy when analysing packages that produce binaries, but it doesn't make much sense for packages that are just source.
