Fair enough - I just reacted based on your own words above "doesn't match the version 4.2.0~dfsg-1", which does not explain why it is ok to relax even further. In case you want release team to process this for Jessie, it might make sense to elaborate a bit why relaxing even further is ok - as there is nothing particular mentioned in changelog of fonts-font-awesome¹. - Jonas ¹ not "font-awesome" - again I guess it's just a typo here in the bugreport but mentioning to be on the safe side. -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
